MCC women win Alpena tourney
The Muskegon Community College women's Basketball team overcame its struggles at the free throw line to defeat host Alpena CC 63-50 in the East--West Classic title game on Saturday.

The Jayhawks were only 8-of-21 from the line, but held the Lumberjacks to just 30 percent shooting in the game and forced 17 turnovers.

Ashley Moon led MCC with 18 points, including four 3-pointers, Paris Thomas had 14 points and five assists and Whitney Davis finished with four blocked shots.

With the relocated Oklahoma City Thunder off to an NBA-worst 1-12 start, P.J. Carlesimo was fired as coach Saturday and replaced on an interim basis by assistant Scott Brooks. The firing -- the first of an NBA coach this season -- followed a 105-80 defeat to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night for the Thunder's 10th straight loss. Brooks was to make his debut Saturday night in a rematch with the Hornets in New Orleans. The Thunder also let go assistant Paul Westhead, who guided the Phoenix Mercury to the 2007 WNBA title andan NBA title in 1980 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

GOLF: Muskegon's Andy Ruthkoski missed out on advancing to the final stage in the PGA qualifying school. Ruthkoski shot 73 Saturday to finish the four rounds in 9-over-par 297 at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, Calif. He finished tied for 61st. The top 19 spots advanced.

TENNIS: Tennis great Jimmy Connors was arrested outside the campus arena where UC Santa Barbara and top-ranked North Carolina were playing a Basketball game. The eight-time Grand Slam champion was taken into custody Friday night after refusing to comply with an order to leave an area near the entrance of the Thunderdome following a confrontation.

Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco sent a chill through Argentine tennis Saturday, winning their doubles match to give Spain a 2-1 lead in the Davis Cup final. Lopez and Verdasco defeated David Nalbandian and Agustin Calleri 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-3, boosting Spain's hopes of winning the best-of-five championship on the road despite thence of an ailing Rafael Nadal.

FIGURE SKATING: Brian Joubert's sensational short program gave him such a big lead that he won the Cup of Russia in Moscow even with a less-than-stellar free skate. Carolina Kostner used an elegant free skate to win the women's title Saturday and China's Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao hung on to win the pairs. In the ice dance, Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin maintained their narrow lead after the original dance.

SNOWBOARDING: Janne Korpi of Finland won a Big Air snowboarding World Cup event in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday to move into third place in the overall standings. Chris Sorman of Sweden finished second.
