KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Freshman point guard Sa'de Wiley-Gatewood was held out of Tennessee's 74-52 win over Arkansas on Thursday for violating team rules, coach Pat Summitt said after the game.

Summitt wouldn't disclose the nature of the violations.

Wiley-Gatewood, of Pomona, Calif., sat out the first games of the season to recover from patellar tendinitis. After she was cleared to play, Summitt held her out of two more games for violating team rules. Wiley-Gatewood made her debut on Dec. 19 against TCU.

A reserve, she is averaging 4.6 points a game. She had her best game in a 68-67 win at Connecticut with 12 points.
