Tennessee entering SEC opener on hot streak

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee may be starting its customary late-season surge a little earlier than usual.

The Volunteers (9-4) carry a three-game winning streak into Tuesday's Southeastern Conference opener at LSU (9-3). Now the Vols need to prove they can win on the road, which has been a problem lately.

Tennessee expects to have freshman guard Robert Hubbs III back after an injured left shoulder caused him to miss a 98-51 victory over Tusculum on Saturday. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said Hubbs practiced Sunday and should play Tuesday

The Vols are 35-9 at home and 7-17 in true road games during Martin's three-year coaching tenure. In the Vols' only two games on an opposing team's home floor this season, they fell 67-63 at Xavier and 70-61 to No. 6 Wichita State.
