One of two freshman starters for the Vols Saturday, Scotty Hopson was 7-of-11 from the floor, including 3-of-6 from 3-point range. He added three rebounds, one steal and one block in the winning effort.
Hopson also enthralled the crowd of 21,864 with four dunks as UT?rolled to a 114-75 victory. One of his dunks—a high-flying, one-handed jam—was featured on ESPN SportsCenter's Top-10 Plays Saturday night.
Hopson's award gives Tennessee 18 SEC?Player or Freshman of the Week honors since the 2005-06 season—Bruce Pearl's first as UT's head coach.
