   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 62

- Tyler Smith

Tennessee's Tyler Smith - the other Tyler Smith - was kicked off the team in January. His professional career thus begun earlier than was intended. It's off to a good start, though; playing for Bornova in Turkey, Smith averages 18.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game, shooting 54% from the field and 45% from three point range. Had he played enough games to qualify, those numbers would rank him 3rd in the country in scoring, 6th in rebounding and 5th in assists. He remains a viable draft candidate, despite his acrimonious departure from the Vols.

(Question: how far does Tennessee get in the tournament had Smith stayed?)
