Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl announced Saturday that Melvin Goins and Cameron Tatum will return to the team for Tuesday's game at Alabama. Brian Williams continues to serve an indefinite suspension.

Goins and Tatum each have been suspended for four games and will be allowed to resume participation in practice starting Sunday. The pair has not taken part in any team activities since the evening of Dec. 31.

Senior guard/forward Tyler Smith was dismissed from the team on Jan. 8.
