Basketball preview: Florida at Tennessee

. TONIGHT

No. 8 Florida at Tennessee

When/where: 9; Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tenn.

TV/radio: ESPN; 620-AM

Records: Florida 22-4, 12-2 SEC; Tennessee 16-10, 8-6

Notable: The Vols are coming off a four-overtime victory over Texas A&M on Saturday in which three players were on the court for at least 48 minutes and a fourth played more than 40. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said he planned to practice the team for about only an hour on Monday — no contact. … Florida has lost six of its past seven games at Thompson-Boling Arena. Even the Gators' national title teams didn't win there. Now Florida goes in without Will Yeguete (knee) and Michael Frazier II (concussion), hoping to get something productive from its three little-used freshmen.

    Today: at Orioles

    1:35, Camden Yards, Baltimore

    TV/radio: Fox Sports Sun, 1250-AM, 760-AM (Spanish)

  2. Rays Tales: Who's the team MVP? It's a vexing proposition

    The Heater

    Given that the Rays' season is — barring a much bigger story — going to end next Sunday, this is the time to reflect on what they did over the past six months — honor the good, acknowledge the bad and note some of the more interesting.

    Typically, that starts with the MVP.

    Corey Dickerson, left, and Steven Souza Jr. typify the conundrum: some good, some not so good.
  3. Lightning journal: Ryan Callahan feels good after first game action since January

    Sports

    TAMPA — As veteran RW Ryan Callahan was riding a stationary bike before Friday's exhibition game, he felt nervous. There was anxiety.

    Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Ryan Callahan (24) pursues Nashville Predators center Colton Sissons (10) during the first period of Friday (9/22/17) preseason game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Nashville Predators at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
  4. FSU players rally around freshman QB James Blackman

    College

    TALLAHASSEE — For the first few minutes Saturday, Florida State's James Blackman looked like a true freshman making his first start at quarterback for a big-time program.

    Florida State Seminoles quarterback James Blackman (1) gets sacked during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles game against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on September 23, 2017, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.  Final score, North Carolina State Wolfpack 27, Florida State Seminoles 21.
  5. No. 12 FSU, defense struggle in 27-21 loss to N.C. State

    College

    TALLAHASSEE — It's easy to blame No. 12 Florida State's 27-21 loss to North Carolina State on the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois or the three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma.

    It would also be wrong.

At the half, North Carolina State Wolfpack 17, Florida State Seminoles 10.
