  • Jury convicts 2 ex-Vanderbilt players of raping woman

    Updated: 14 hr ago

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A jury convicted two ex-Vanderbilt football players on Tuesday of raping a former student, rejecting claims that they were too drunk to know what they were doing and that a college culture of binge drinking and promiscuous sex should be blamed for the attack. The jury deliberated for three hours before announcing that Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey were guilty of aggravated rape and aggravated sexual battery. Batey was stoic, staring ahead and Vandenburg shook his head "no," appearing stunned. His father had an outburst and abruptly left the courtroom. The victim, a 21-year-old neuroscience and economics major at the time of the June 2013 attack, cried as each guilty verdict was announced.

    Updated: 14 hr ago

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants and shortstop Brandon Crawford have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract for $3,175,000.

Crawford has a .242 career average with 26 homers and 178 RBIs. The Giants have two players remaining in salary arbitration in first baseman Brandon Belt and third b

  • The different levels of long on the PGA Tour

    Updated: 14 hr ago

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Tim Clark was wrong about one thing. He's not the shortest hitter on the PGA Tour. Justin Leonard earned that distinction last season on the PGA Tour by finishing at No. 177 in measured drives at an average of 270.3 yards. Clark was three spots better at 272.2 yards. Either way, he quit worrying about driving distance a long time ago, realizing he can make up for it with other parts of his game. But it led to a question: How long is long? And when is it long enough? Russell Knox has the reputation of being on the short side, even though he feels he can get it out there far enough. Knox was at No. 120 in driving distance last year. He believes there are three categories of length. "Guys t

That might be the best indication yet that the biggest news on the PGA Tour actually might occur on a golf course. Consider the last week.

Allenby stood by his story Tuesday that he was beaten and robbed, even though he said he has no recollection of the 2½ hours from leaving a wine bar
