Santiago Vescovi, key guard for Tennessee basketball, is set to miss the Sweet 16 showdown against Creighton due to illness, as the Vols gear up for a crucial matchup in March Madness.

Vescovi, who did not participate in Thursday’s practice session, is grappling with flu symptoms, leaving his availability for Friday’s game uncertain.

Despite initial hopes for his participation, Vols coach Rick Barnes revealed that Vescovi will be sidelined, marking the fourth absence in his five-year career.

With Vescovi out of action, junior guard Jahmai Mashack steps into the starting lineup, tasked with filling the void left by the seasoned player.

The Uruguayan guard has been a stalwart for Tennessee throughout the season, boasting an impressive record of 144 starts in his career, a feat that stands as a Tennessee record.

Known for his all-around contributions, Vescovi has been a linchpin in the team’s success, averaging 10.4 points per game and showcasing remarkable defensive prowess with a career-high 212 steals.

While Vescovi’s absence presents a significant setback for the Vols, they have been relatively fortunate on the injury front this season, with Tobe Awaka being the only notable absence before the Sweet 16 due to an ankle injury earlier in the season.

As Tennessee braces for a high-stakes encounter against Creighton, the team faces the challenge of adapting to Vescovi’s absence and maintaining their momentum in the tournament.
