The Lowdown

Posted by on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 11:01 AM

Nice scoop for former Tennessean reporter Chris Low on how former UT hoops star Chris Lofton secretly battled cancer during the last basketball season. The piece, which ran on ESPN.com, detailed how Lofton was diagnosed with testicular cancer toward the end of the 2006-2007 season and that to keep his treatment under wraps, UT coach Bruce Pearl disguised himself when he visited his star player in the hospital. A former UT beat reporter for The Tennessean, Low is one of ESPN.com's more prolific writers, typically covering SEC football and basketball. And now we come to the part of my post when I add some sort of cheap shot. Let's try this one: "I can't imagine ESPN ever recruiting the Vandy beat writer for The Tennessean." So there you go.
