Tennessee's McRae adjusting to extra attention

Tools

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee guard Jordan McRae is still adjusting to the extra attention that comes with being a team's leading scorer.

McRae averaged 21.6 points during a seven-game stretch that included Tennessee's first six Southeastern Conference games, but he has shot a combined 4 of 21 over his last two games as opposing defenses have focused more on stopping him.

The 6-foot-5 junior will try to break out of this mini-slump Wednesday when Tennessee (11-9, 3-5 SEC) hosts Georgia (10-11, 4-4).

McRae said he noticed a difference in the way teams were focusing on him last week. He shot 2 of 10 and scored seven points Jan. 29 in a 58-57 victory over Vanderbilt. McRae had six points Saturday and went 2 of 11 in a 73-60 loss to Arkansas.
