Duquesne rallies past WVU

PITTSBURGH – Jeremiah Jones scored 16 points and Derrick Colter added 12 points and seven assists as Duquesne rallied past West Virginia 60-56 on Tuesday night.

Marvin Binney scored 10 points off the bench for the Dukes (6-4), who beat the Mountaineers for the first time since 2003 behind a solid second half that erased a 15-point deficit.

Juwan Staten led West Virginia (4-4) with 13 points and Gary Browne and Matt Humphrey added 10 points each, but the Mountaineers saw their three-game winning streak end during a miserable 20 minutes in which they struggled on both ends of the floor.

West Virginia shot just 28 percent (9 of 32) in the second half, allowing Duquesne to get back in the game.

U.S. to announce next Cup captain

The PGA of America is bringing a mystery guest to the “Today” show – its next Ryder Cup captain.

An organization that is not shy about giving rock-star treatment to the Ryder Cup, the PGA of America said Tuesday it would reveal the next U.S. captain during a segment Thursday of NBC’s morning show, followed by a news conference in the Empire State Building.

NBC is the longtime broadcast partner of the Ryder Cup.

Adding to the intrigue is which direction the PGA of America decides to take – its model of choosing former major champions in their late 40s, or a stately figure.

The next Ryder Cup will be in 2014 at Gleneagles, Scotland, and there has been recent support for Tom Watson, who is revered in golf’s homeland for having won four of his five British Open titles in Scotland.

Armstrong fought subpoena

AUSTIN, Texas – Lance Armstrong resisted turning over records sought by U.S Postal Service investigators, then tried to keep the inquiry under seal and out of the public eye, according to recently released court documents.

In 2011, Postal Service officials investigating Armstrong and his teams for doping wanted records from his team management groups, financial statements, training journals and correspondence with former training consultant Michele Ferrari.

The Postal Service was Armstrong’s main sponsor when he won the Tour de France from 1999-2004.

The team was sponsored by the Discovery Channel for Armstrong’s seventh victory in 2005.

Armstrong was stripped of those titles this year.

He eventually complied with the subpoena for documents but has attempted to keep any mention of the inquiry private.

A federal judge last week ordered some documents released.
