KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Kelley Cain, a freshman center for No. 1 Tennessee, had successful knee surgery Tuesday at St. Mary's Hospital.

The 6-foot-6 center from Atlanta will be lost for the season.

Cain twisted her right knee when she stepped on another player's foot during a practice in early November.

The Lady Vols roster is down to just nine players. Sophomore point guard Cait McMahan is still rehabilitating her right knee from surgery June 6 and is projected to redshirt this season.
