    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — With two former Vanderbilt football players facing decades in prison after being convicted of the rape of an unconscious student in a dorm room, attention now turns to two of their teammates who have yet to go to trial. It took a jury three hours Tuesday to reach a verdict convicting Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey of multiple charges of aggravated rape and sexual battery. The jury saw powerful video evidence and photographs of the then-21-year-old neuroscience major being sexually assaulted on a dorm room floor. Some of those videos were taken by Vandenburg, who sent them to friends while the attack was ongoing.

    Updated: 8 hr ago

    WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) — Change is coming for a small-school dynasty. The search for a new football coach at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater may not draw the kind of scrutiny that, say, Big Ten power Wisconsin received during its high-profile, rumor-filled pursuit for a new leader. But the new coach at Whitewater will immediately inherit great expectations. It's not often that a job comes open at a school with the nation's longest winning streak (32 games) and six national titles in the last eight seasons. "We want to have the tradition that we have to keep going," junior safety Bennett Young said. "We want him to buy into what we've done because clearly it has been working the past decade."

    STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford was fine with getting close-to-normal scoring production from stars Phil Forte and Le'Bryan Nash. What everyone else did helped the Cowboys beat No. 20 Baylor 64-53 on Tuesday night. Oklahoma State's suffocating defense held the Bears to 34.5 percent shooting. "We got after it," Ford said. "We got after it defensively, and we sustained it, and we had a little toughness to our defense. It wasn't one or two guys, it was everybody locked in. It's the difference between winning and losing." Forte scored 16 points, Nash added 13 and everyone else chipped in to help the Cowboys claim their second win over a ranked opponent this season.

  • No. 17 Mountaineers turn up pressure, throttle K-State 65-59

    Updated: 14 hr ago

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — West Virginia coach Bob Huggins and Kansas State counterpart Bruce Weber had vastly differing opinions of the No. 17 Mountaineers' rough-and-tumble, 65-59 victory Tuesday night. "I thought it was beautiful," Huggins said. "I've never had an ugly win, ever." If ever there was one, though, this might have been it: The Wildcats turned the ball over 25 times, the Mountaineers 20, and the teams combined for 54 fouls in a herky-jerky affair. All of which led Weber to declare the game, "Awful." "It's just bad basketball, but they're what, 17-3? I'd be happy too," Weber said with a shake of his head. "It's just their style. They make you play basketball." Tarik Phillip matched a career-best

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Nina Davis had 24 points and 11 rebounds as No. 3 Baylor stretched its winning streak to 18 in a row with an 89-67 victory at TCU on Tuesday night. Khadijiah Cave, like Davis scoring almost at will inside, added a career-high 21 points for the Lady Bears (19-1, 8-0 Big 12). Sune Agbuke, another post player, had 12 points. Only No. 1 South Carolina (19-0) has a longer active winning streak. The Lady Bears had been matched with No. 19 Princeton (17-0) for the second-longest streak. Veja Hamilton had 15 points and Chelsea Prince 13 for TCU (12-7, 4-4). All but one of Cave's 10 field goals were layups. Baylor finished with a 60-24 scoring advantage in the paint.

    Updated: 15 hr ago

    Southern Oregon University won its first NAIA national trophy in football this past season. Now the school is looking for some help getting championship rings to go with it. Unlike in NCAA Division I, NAIA does not pay for championship rings. So Southern Oregon is not only hitting up its donors to try to cover the approximately $37,000 it will cost for 150 rings at $250 apiece, it also set up a page on its athletic website where anybody can make a donation. "Especially being a state school, there's not a lot of extra money going around," associated athletic director Bobby Heiken said. "We had to attack it as a fundraiser." Heiken said SOU has already raised about $14,000. The Raiders beat Marian College 55-31 to w

    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.
