Tennessee’s athletic department reported 10 secondary violations of NCAA bylaws since August, according to information posted on the school’s website.

Three of the violations were in men’s basketball, including a violation reported in September related to an open practice before UT’s football game against Florida that was attended by basketball prospect Robert Hubbs.
