KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's Trae Golden understands he doesn't necessarily fit the profile of a typical point guard.

Golden has a reputation as a scorer, but he runs the offense for a Tennessee team that doesn't really have a proven pure point guard. Golden gradually has learned the best way to get his teammates involved without losing his scorer's mentality.

The 6-foot-2 junior has averaged 14.5 points while totaling 13 assists and only two turnovers over Tennessee's last two games. He will try to continue that pace Friday when Tennessee (4-1) faces No. 20 Georgetown (4-1) in an SEC/Big East Challenge game in Washington, D.C.

Golden ranks third in the SEC with 5.2 assists per game. His 3.71 assist-turnover ratio represents a dramatic improvement from last year.
