COLLEGE FOOTBALL

The  family  of the late Joe  Paterno released its  results in a review of the
findings  in  former FBI  director Louis Freeh's  investigation into the Jerry
Sandusky  child  sex  abuse  case.  Calling it  "A  Rush  to  Injustice,"  the
conclusions  of experts  hired  by  the family  of  the  legendary Penn  State
football  coach said  the Freeh Report, commissioned by Penn State University,
is factually wrong, speculative and fundamentally flawed. The Paterno family's
expert  team  featured former Pennsylvania  governor and U.S. Attorney General
Dick  Thornburgh,  former top FBI  profiler Jim Clemente, prominent Washington
attorney  Wick Sollers  and the director of The Johns Hopkins Sexual Behaviors
Consultation  Unit,  Dr. Fred Berlin.  Each of  the four men composed separate
reviews  of the Freeh  Report over the past six months and determined that the
Freeh  Report  "does not meet the  basic requirements of a thorough, objective
and  fair investigation."  Freeh issued a response  to the Paterno report  and
stood by his investigation.

GOLF

Brandt Snedeker fired a 7-under 65 on Sunday and picked up a two-stroke win at
the  Pebble Beach  National Pro-Am in California.  Snedeker finished his fifth
PGA Tour title  at 19-under-par  267,  breaking the  tournament record  of 268
first set by Mark O'Meara in 1997 and matched by Phil Mickelson in 2007. Chris
Kirk carded  a 6-under 66 to grab  second place at minus-17.  James Hahn,  who
shared the third-round lead with Snedeker,  managed a 2-under 70 on Sunday and
tied for third at 14-under with Jimmy Walker and Kevin Stadler. Mickelson, the
defending champion coming off a win last week at the Phoenix Open, was never a
factor this week and finished at 1-under par.

TENNIS

Horacio  Zeballos, the  73rd  ranked  player in  the  world, upset  clay-court
superstar  Rafael Nadal in the final of the VTR Open  on Sunday to capture his
first  career ATP title. Nadal, the top-seeded 11-time Grand Slam champion and
owner  of  50 career ATP  titles, was playing flawlessly  in his return from a
seven-month layoff. The Spanish star had been sidelined since last summer with
a  knee injury  and did  not lose  a  set leading  up to  Sunday's final.  But
Zeballos,  who did not  advance past the second round at any of the tour-level
events  last year, took the second set in a tiebreaker and broke Nadal's final
serve  at love  to come away victorious.  The final score of the two-hour, 46-
minute  battle read 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (8-6), 6-4 on the red clay at Club Naval de
Campo Las Silnas.


The  Fed  Cup quarterfinals  were completed  Sunday and  the United States was
eliminated  by  Italy. The Americans,  playing without the Williams sisters or
rising  star  Sloane Stephens, held  a 2-1 lead  in the best-of-five tie after
Varvara  Lepchenko beat Sara Errani in the first reverse singles match Sunday,
but  Roberta  Vinci kept  the Italians  alive with a  three-set win over Jamie
Hampton  and teamed up with Errani to give the hosts the deciding point with a
6-2, 6-2 doubles triumph over Lepchenko and Liezel Huber. Italy will next play
the  defending  champion  Czech  Republic,  which completed  a  4-0  win  over
Australia  on Sunday.  Also  Sunday,  Russia beat  Japan  and  will next  meet
Slovakia, which knocked out Serbia.
