MORE EXPENSIVE USF SEASON TICKETS ON SALE

MAKING NEWS

USF has put its 2008 football season tickets on sale, and it will cost more to see the Bulls this fall. All season ticket prices were increased by at least $3 per game - less than a 10 percent increase for the most expensive tickets, as much as 21.7 percent more in a few sections. Home games are against Big East teams Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Connecticut and nonconference opponents Kansas and Tennessee-Martin. USF is shifting the largest student section in the Big East, adding lower sections to put 2,000 more students in the lower level. Three sections are earmarked for a family plan that gives two adult and two child season tickets for $350. Single-game tickets go on sale Aug. 1. Call toll-free 1-800-462-8557.

OUT OF BOUNDS

Spurned $21-million sound good now?

Former NBA star Latrell Sprewell's home is up for foreclosure and his yacht sold at auction to help pay off $1.3-million he owes on the boat, according to court filings. Sprewell, 37, who once turned down a three-year, $21-million contract extension saying, "I've got my family to feed," has apparently fallen on tough times. A bank filed a foreclosure suit last week in Milwaukee County for his $405,000 home, saying Sprewell owed $295,138 in outstanding payments and interest. Sprewell and one of his attorneys could not be reached for comment.
