07:59 AM ET 01.08 | Jeronne Maymon didn't want to be a liability -- or a distraction. Stepping in front cameras and tape recorders for the first time since October's optimistic men's basketball media day, [Maymon] laid out his bottom line Monday afternoon. "I didn't want to miss too many games," he conceded. "I didn't want to come back and be a distraction and have coach try to put me in there where other guys have paved the way for themselves to play this year. I'm just going to take the backseat and let guys do what they have to do." ... [Maymon and UT coach Cuonzo Martin] addressed the media one day after an official UT release announced Maymon will apply for a medical redshirt due to a left knee injury. He will return to UT as a fifth-year senior in 2013-14.
