Lofton suffers minor ankle injury, expected to play Thursday

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee guard and leading scorer Chris
Lofton has a minor leg injury but is expected to play Thursday
against Louisville.
Team spokesman Craig Pinkerton says Lofton wore a walking boot
on his foot as a precaution while the Vols rested on Monday and was
expected to practice on Tuesday.
Coach Bruce Pearl told The Knoxville News Sentinel that Lofton
"tweaked" his ankle in the first half of Tennessee's 76-71
overtime win against Butler in the NCAA tournament.
Lofton leads Tennessee with 15.5 points per game.
