'Noles tied for lead at men's golf championship

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Florida State and Oklahoma State shared the team lead at 5-under 283 after Tuesday's opening medal-play round at the Division I men's golf championship, and Arizona State's Jesper Kennegard and Augusta (Ga.) State's Henrik Norlander shot 4-under 68s to lead the individual race.

Florida was tied for seventh with Augusta, four strokes out of the lead. Oregon was third at 284.

Florida State's Seath Lauer and Florida's Phillip Choi shot 69 to sit in a group of 10 tied for third.

The Honors Course was made softer and more forgiving by weekend rain and overcast conditions. That gave several competitors a shot at beating the course record, 5-under 67, first shot by Tiger Woods en route to his title in 1996.

Basketball: Seton Hall forward Herb Pope, the Big East's leading rebounder last season, is home in Pennsylvania after a nearly monthlong stay in a New Jersey hospital after collapsing during a training session in April. Athletic director Joe Quinlan, citing privacy laws, would not discuss what caused Pope to collapse. Quinlan also would not say whether Pope would play next season for new coach Kevin Willard. Pope had announced his intention to enter the draft after the season, but he did not hired an agent and withdrew his name in May.

Football: Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach can move forward with a lawsuit claiming breach of contract over his firing, which followed allegations of player mistreatment, a judge ruled in Lubbock, Texas. State District Judge William C. Sowder struck down Texas Tech's claim of sovereign immunity from Leach's claim. But Sowder upheld the school's sovereign immunity against the suit's other claims, which included libel, slander and violation of Texas' Whistleblower Act.

Softball: Washington pitcher Danielle Lawrie has been named national player of the year for the second consecutive time. She is 40-3 with a 1.00 earned-run average and a school-record 24 shutouts. Her 1,843 career strikeouts are the most in Pac-10 history and fourth in NCAA history. The defending national champion Huskies are in Oklahoma preparing for another Women's College World Series.

Big 12: With speculation swirling about Missouri and Nebraska being targets for possible Big Ten expansion, commissioner Dan Beebe opened the spring meetings at Kansas City, Mo., saying he hopes to get long-term commitments from his members before the meetings close Friday.
