Sun Devils edge FSU for men's track title

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Florida State's men came up just shy in a bid for their first national indoor track title Saturday.

The Seminoles entered the final event, the 1,600-meter relay, tied with Arizona State. But the Sun Devils, who earned 10 points in the previous event when Kyle Alcorn won the 3,000, finished third, about a second faster than the Seminoles, to win the title with 44 points.

FSU finished with 41.

FSU was competing without Walter Dix, who won the previous two national indoor and outdoor 200 titles and usually is part of the 1,600 relay. He missed the meet with strep throat.

FSU's Gonzalo Barroilhet won the heptathlon with 5,951 points. Florida's Mike Morrison finished third and broke his own school record with 5,792 points.

Arizona State won the women's title with 51 points.

LSU was second with 43.

FSU got a win from Susan Kuij­ken in the 3,000, while Florida got a win from Mariam Kevkhishvili in the shot put.

Football: Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, the nation's top recruit according to some analysts and who did not commit on signing day, said he will choose a school this week. The Pennsylvania native previously said finalists include Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan and Oregon.

    The weekend sweep by Texas and four-game overall losing streak has some Rays fans - based on their tweets and emails - questioning the team's ability to make the playoffs and suggesting they might as well trade away their key parts.
