When the UL men's basketball team takes the floor on Monday night at Tennessee, the Cajuns will play without leading scorer Travis Bureau for the second consecutive game.

On Friday, UL coach Robert Lee told The Daily Advertiser that Bureau is out for Monday's 6:30 p.m. contest against the Vols (8-2). The sophomore missed Sunday's 56-54 loss to Sam Houston State with a nagging groin injury and recently had two deaths in the family.

Lee did not elaborate on Bureau's status for the Cajuns (4-6) going into Wednesday's 1:30 p.m. showdown at LSU (9-1).
