Vols salvage Maui trip with rout of the hosts

Jordan McRae scored 25 points, Trae Golden added 17 and Tennessee rolled over Chaminade 86-60 in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational on Wednesday.

Tennessee (3-2) rebounded from a pair of difficult losses in Maui by breezing past the Division II Silverswords. The Vols took control with a big opening run and didn't let up, hitting 15 3-pointers while shooting 57 percent.

Tennessee did it without much help from forward Jeronne Maymon, who played just 2 minutes after he had 32 points and a tournament-record 20 rebounds against No. 8 Memphis.

Georgetown 91, No. 8 Memphis 88: Jason Clark hit a big 3-pointer in overtime and scored 26 points, helping Georgetown hold off No. 8 Memphis in the fifth-place game of the Maui Invitational.

Memphis and Georgetown didn't look like two teams playing for fifth place, trading monster dunks, 3-pointers and leads throughout regulation.

No. 3 Ohio St. 107, Virginia Military Institute 74: William Buford scored 23 points, and Jared Sullinger added 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead the host Buckeyes.

Aaron Craft had 13 points and eight assists, Deshaun Thomas 11 points and J.D. Weatherspoon 10 points for the Buckeyes (5-0), who shot 68 percent from the field.

Marshall 83, Morehead 88: Visiting Marshall hit 63 percent of its shots from the field to send Morehead to 1-3.

The Thundering Herd raced off to a 17-6 lead and never looked back.

Morehead, which got 16 points and 15 rebounds from junior Ashar Harris, hit only two of its first 17 shots.

Syracuse scandal: DA accuses police of leak

A district attorney has accused police officials of criminally leaking a document in the sexual abuse investigation of Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.

In a news conference Wednesday, prosecutor William Fitzpatrick accused Syracuse police Chief Frank Fowler and Deputy Chief Sean Broton of leaking a witness affidavit to embarrass the district attorney's office. At issue is the handling in 2002 of Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis' initial claims that Fine had molested him.

Fitzpatrick said the chief or deputy chief leaked an affidavit from Davis' former girlfriend Danielle Roach to the newspaper while refusing to turn the document over to the prosecution.

The Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper has published details from the affidavit.

Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner said Fowler and Broton did not authorize the release of any documents to the newspaper.
