Vols G Reese has shoulder surgery, out 6 months

Tennessee freshman guard Derek Reese will miss approximately six

months after having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right

shoulder.

Chad Newman, associate director of sports medicine, announced

Tuesday night that Reese had surgery earlier in the day at the

University of Tennessee Medical Center.

The freshman from Orlando, Fla., enrolled at Tennessee in the

second session of summer school. He was with the Volunteers on a

recent tour of Italy, but didn’t dress for any of the four

games.
