Sports In Brief
Minnesota paying Haskins to leave job
By The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS -- Clem Haskins' tenure as Minnesota basketball coach,
rocked by charges of academic cheating to help his players and other irregularites,
approached a conclusion today after agreement on a buyout package said
to be worth more than $1 million.
The university's Board of Regents scheduled an emergency closed meeting
for this morning today to consider the deal. A decision on Haskins' fate
was expected one way or another, and a news conference was planned afterward.
BOSTON -- The long trial of the malpractice suit filed by the
widow of Boston Celtics captain Reggie Lewis ended in mistrial after the
jury told the judge it was deadlocked.
After 35 hours of deliberations by the jury, Suffolk Superior Court
Judge Thayer Fremont-Smith declared the mistrial Thursday.
Lawyers for Lewis' widow vowed to press on with a new trial for Dr.
Gilbert Mudge, who was accused of misdiagnosing and mistreating Lewis before
his death in July 1993.
