RALEIGH ó Point guard Ryan Harrow is transferring after one season at North Carolina State.
The school said Tuesday that Harrow and new coach Mark Gottfried came to a mutual decision that the guard will transfer to another program.
In a statement issued by the school, Gottfried said he would release Harrow to any school except any of the Wolfpackís fellow Atlantic Coast Conference members, and says he and his staff ěwill do anything we can to assist him in this process.î
The move leaves the Wolfpackís roster without a true point guard with experience at the position, though shooting guard Lorenzo Brown did play some at the point last season under Sidney Lowe and wound up leading the team with 112 assists. Javier Gonzalez, who was N.C. Stateís starter at point guard last season, graduated after making 21 starts.
Harrow made 10 starts during his freshman season while playing in 29 games and ranking seventh in the ACC with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.9. He also averaged 9.3 points and was a 87 percent free-throw shooter.
When Gottfried was named the Wolfpackís coach earlier this month, Harrow was noncommittal about his future plans. If he transfers to another Division I school, he must sit out one season and will have three years of eligibility after that.
ěThe year off will help me improve in many ways and I think the decision is the best for me personally,î Harrow said in the statement.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. ó Rick Pitino didn’t look far to revamp his coaching staff.
The Louisville coach rehired son Richard Pitino on Tuesday, two years after Richard left to join Billy Donovan’s staff at Florida.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ó College basketball attendance across the three divisions has decreased slightly to 32.8 million.
The NCAA announced Tuesday that it still ranks No. 5 all-time.
Division I schools drew 27.6 million fans, an increase of more than 86,000 over the previous season.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ó Florida coach Will Muschamp sent a strong message to his team Tuesday by dismissing star cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Jenkins was kicked off the team after his third arrest in less than two years, his second in the past four months.
Muschamp’s decision makes it clear he won’t tolerate the off-the-field issues that plagued the Gators during former coach Urban Meyer’s tenure. The Gators had 30 arrests involving 27 players during Meyer’s six seasons.
One of those included Jenkins. Police used a stun gun when arresting Jenkins in May 2009, and he was charged with affray and resisting arrest without violence.
But his last two arrests were on marijuana possession charges.
NFL
WASHINGTON ó Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor sexual abuse for allegedly fondling the breast of his server in a hotel restaurant in Washington.
A grand jury returned an indictment formally charging Haynesworth over the alleged incident at a downtown Washington hotel in the early hours of Feb. 13. If convicted, the 29-year-old two-time All-Pro faces up to six months days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
The government’s evidence shows Haynesworth slid a credit card down the front of the server’s dress and fondled her breast.
GOLF
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. ó Without a title sponsor, the Heritage is on the clock.
Sunday’s final round ó Brandt Snedeker happily slipped on his plaid champions coat and held the Heritage trophy high as fans around the 18th green applauded one of Harbour Towns Golf Links’ most thrilling finishes ó could have been the tournament’s last hoorah.
The PGA Tour fixture since 1969 is without a title sponsor and desperately seeking the $8 million or so it would take to underwrite the tournament.
TENNIS
Maybe Patrick McEnroe and Donald Young can work this thing out at a Cee Lo concert.
One of America’s most respected names in tennis and one of its top young hopefuls are using the media ó social and traditional ó in a war of words that began with Young’s expletive-laden rip on the USTA via Twitter over what he perceived as a snub in the handing out of a wild-card spot for the French Open.
The dispute picked up again Monday, when McEnroe held a conference call with reporters in which he demanded an apology and all but called Young an ingrate with an overbearing family.
Young’s tweet came out after he lost last Friday in the final of a tournament that determined who would receive the USTA’s wild-card entry into the French Open. It channeled the hit Cee Lo song ó the scrubbed-up version of which is called “Forget You” on most family radio stations.
