Ex-player sues Penn St., al­leges haz­ing

Orlando Sentinel - - SCOREBOARD -

An ex-Penn State foot­ball player claims in a law­suit that Nit­tany Lions play­ers hazed him and other younger team­mates by im­i­tat­ing sex­ual acts in the shower and in­vok­ing Jerry San­dusky’s name.

Isa­iah Humphries, a cor­ner­back from Texas, who spent the 2018 sea­son with the Nit­tany Lions, filed the law­suit Mon­day in fed­eral court against the univer­sity, coach James Franklin and one for­mer team­mate.

The school’s own in­ves­ti­ga­tion found the ex-team­mate had com­mit­ted “pro­hib­ited be­hav­ior,” the com­plaint said.

Univer­sity po­lice turned over re­sults of their in­ves­ti­ga­tion to the lo­cal district at­tor­ney, who de­clined to pros­e­cute.

Base­ball: The Twins and free-agent 3B Josh Don­ald­son agreed to a four-year deal worth $92 mil­lion, ac­cord­ing to re­ports. Don­ald­son, 34, a three-time All-Star and the 2015 AL MVP, hit .259 with 37 HRs and 94 RBIs in 155 games last sea­son for the Braves. ... The Phillies cut OF Odubel Her­rera and claimed OF Nick Mar­tini off waivers. Her­rera, 28, an All-Star in 2016, was sus­pended last sea­son un­der MLB’s do­mes­tic vi­o­lence pol­icy af­ter his ar­rest at a casino in At­lantic City, N.J., on do­mes­tic as­sault charges. The charges against Her­rera were dis­missed, but he re­mained on the sus­pended list.

Golf: The PGA Tour and Euro­pean Tour will in­tro­duce new poli­cies to ad­dress pace of play. The Euro­pean Tour pol­icy starts this week, and the PGA Tour pol­icy will be­gin af­ter the Masters.

Ten­nis: Aus­tralian Open of­fi­cials de­layed the start of play by two hours on the sec­ond day of qual­i­fy­ing, hop­ing that smoke from re­gional wild fires will clear later Wed­nes­day. Smoke and hazy conditions at Mel­bourne Park af­fected the open­ing day’s play with or­ga­niz­ers crit­i­cized for al­low­ing matches to pro­ceed. Slove­nia’s Dalila Jakupovic feared she would pass out be­fore re­tir­ing when she col­lapsed to her knees with a cough­ing spell.

WNBA: The WNBA and its union an­nounced a ten­ta­tive eight-year la­bor deal that will al­low top play­ers to earn more than $500,000 while the aver­age an­nual com­pen­sa­tion will sur­pass six fig­ures for the first time.
