COLLEGE SPORTS

Lambrigtsen to play two sports at Kish

Oregon senior Olivia Lambrigtsen will play her college ball at Kishwaukee Community College, choosing to play both basketball and soccer.

Lambrigtsen has been a part of the Hawks girls soccer program since it first took the field in 2017.

In basketbal, she averaged 13.4 points per game for the Hakws this past season as a senior.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

KU: Coach encouraged violations

Kansas Athletics Inc. contends in a newly unsealed court filing it has evidence former football coach David Beaty “allowed and encouraged NCAA violations” while at the University of Kansas.

The 66-page memo, which was filed by university attorneys in January and unsealed this past week, also said those alleged violations have “resulted in several hundred thousand" dollars in legal fees for Kansas Athletics.

NFL

Bucs re-sign Suh on 1-year deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to re-assemble pieces to help Tom Brady be successful with his new team.

Keeping an improved defense together was one of the club’s top priorities in free agency. Re-signing tackle Ndamukong Suh to a 1-year, $8 million contract ensures the entire front seven will remain intact for next season.

The move comes on the heels on placing the franchise tag on NFL sacks leader Shaquil Barrett, re-signing linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul to a 2-year, $27 million deal, and luring Brady from New England with $50 million guaranteed and the chance to join some dynamic young offensive playmakers.

Jags, Dennard can't come to terms

The Jacksonville Jaguars and cornerback Darqueze Dennard have parted ways 9 days after agreeing to a 3-year, $13.5 million contract in free agency.

The Jaguars said Thursday “the two sides could not come to an agreement on the final contract terms."

RACING

IndyCar goes to virtual racing

IndyCar isn't sure when it can get its cars on track to officially start the season. For now, the series will follow the lead of other racing leagues and go virtual.

IndyCar's first iRacing event will be Saturday with a 25-car field. The track is still being decided by fan vote.

IndyCar, like all sports, has been idled during the coronavirus pandemic, which hit the United States just as the series was ready to open its season. The league had a hectic 24-hours in St. Petersburg, Florida, where the March 15 season opener was scheduled to be run through the downtown city streets.
