Lessons Already Beginning For Tennessee's Hubbs

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee guard Robert Hubbs III already understands one secret to success even though he hasn't begun his college career yet. That secret: Follow the example of the team's best player.

Just about every time all-Southeastern Conference guard Jordan McRae heads to the gym, he sends a text message or email to Hubbs asking the freshman to join him. Hubbs inevitably makes sure to get there.

Hubbs says he's trying to learn from McRae because "he's all-SEC, and that's what I'm trying to get one day."

Hubbs, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Newbern, Tennessee, was rated as a top-25 prospect by most recruiting services. His presence should prevent opponents from focusing all on McRae.

His arrival also could help Tennessee earn an elusive NCAA tournament bid after consecutive NIT appearances.
