Vols Basketball Player Duke Crews Suspended


Knoxville (UT Release) - Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl announced this evening that Duke Crews has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team due to violations of team rules.

“Duke is a very intelligent student-athlete but has made some poor decisions,” Pearl said. “It is in his, as well as the team’s, best interest that he is suspended at this time.”

A sophomore forward from Hampton, Va., Crews averaged 8.4 points and 5.1 rebounds while leading the Vols in blocked shots (32) and field goal percentage (.518) as a true freshman in 2006-07.
