Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl announced Saturday that Melvin Goins and Cameron Tatum will return to the team for Tuesday's game at Alabama. Brian Williams continues to serve an indefinite suspension.


Goins and Tatum each have been suspended for four games and will be allowed to resume participation in practice starting Sunday. The pair has not taken part in any team activities since the evening of Dec. 31.


Senior guard/forward Tyler Smith was dismissed from the team on Jan. 8.


"While I can't comment on specifics, the degree of discipline applied reflects levels of individual involvement based on the investigation, as well as UT's judicial affairs process," Pearl said. "I do want to thank our fans for their patience as we have worked-and continue to work-through this."
