KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --Tennessee junior center Brian Williams has been reinstated to the Volunteers after he was suspended for a Jan. 1 arrest.

Williams dressed for No. 14 Tennessee's home game against South Carolina on Saturday night.

The Bronx, N.Y., native was one of four Vols players disciplined for drug, gun and alcohol charges stemming from the traffic stop and has not participated in any team activity since the beginning of the year.

Tyler Smith was dismissed from the team for his role, while guards Cameron Tatum and Melvin Goins were reinstated Jan. 17.

Coach Bruce Pearl says he feels he treated each player fairly with their discipline and hopes they have grown from the experience.
