KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Holly Warlick expects to have center Kasiyahna Kushkituah back from an injury-related absence when the ninth-ranked Lady Volunteers host No. 8 Stanford.
Kushkituah has missed Tennessee’s last three games and has been wearing a brace on her left knee. Warlick said Monday that Kushkituah “is good to go” for the Stanford game on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-4 sophomore from Atlanta is averaging 10.2 points and 6.2 rebounds. She ranks fourth on the team in scoring and third in rebounding.
Both Tennessee (8-0) and Stanford (7-1) are coming off victories over ranked opponents. Tennessee won 88-82 at No. 12 Texas on Dec. 9, while Stanford defeated No. 6 Baylor 68-63 on Saturday. Baylor was undefeated and ranked third before falling to Stanford.
