Video out of S. Carolina's Clowney 110 mph ticket
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have released video of South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon (jah-DEH-vee-on) Clowney being ticketed, with troopers saying he drove 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.
Video obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press shows Clowney being pulled over in a Chrysler 300 around 7:30 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 77 north of Columbia.
Radioing in the call, the trooper identifies the driver only as "Clowney."
Clowney is barely audible on the recording and remains in the car during the seven-minute recording.
The ticket carries a $355 fine. A copy obtained by AP shows Clowney has a Jan. 9 court date, although the trooper told him he didn't have to appear.
Clowney is a junior expected to enter the NFL draft after South Carolina plays Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.
Oilers slip past Hurricanes 5-4 in OT
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Jordan Eberle scored a power-play goal at 1:48 of overtime and the Edmonton Oilers earned a 5-4 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.
Carolina's Justin Faulk took a penalty early in the overtime for a hit from behind on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
The Oilers' forward was able to remain on the ice and set up the winner, sending a pass to Eberle at the side of the net to clinch the game as Edmonton recovered after wasting a 4-1 lead.
Taylor Hall, Nail Yakupov, Nugent-Hopkins and Jesse Joensuu also scored for the Oilers, who have gone 7-3-1 in their past 11 games. Edmonton also improved its troubling home record with a 2-1-1 record through the first four games of a five-game homestand.
Tuomo Ruutu, Jordan Staal, Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner scored for the Hurricanes, who have lost two in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak.
Clawson ready to begin rebuilding Wake Forest
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Dave Clawson is eager to start his next rebuilding project at Wake Forest.
Clawson was introduced Tuesday as the Demon Deacons' coach and said the job is "truly a dream come true."
Athletic director Ron Wellman says "we have a winner" in Clawson.
The 46-year-old Clawson faces a tough job at Wake Forest, which is coming off its fifth straight losing season.
His hiring caps a weeklong search for Jim Grobe's replacement. Grobe stepped down Dec. 2 after a 13-year stay that included the best three-year run in school history.
Clawson says Wake Forest "is a special place" and says when the job came open last week, he hoped to be considered for it.

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) - Warren Powers scored five of his game-high 22 points in overtime as Division II Chowan defeated Campbell 67-65 Tuesday night.

Powers made two free throws at the 2:05 mark of overtime to give the Hawks (3-3), who counted the game as an exhibition, the lead for good at 65-64.
The Chowan front line of Powers, Ashante Ross and Phoenix Butler-Poole was impressive. Ross had 17 points and 13 rebounds, Butler-Pooler had 20 and nine plus five assists.
Darius Leonard added 14 points for Campbell.
Chowan was up 56-45 with 3:52 left but a 9-0 run in 95 seconds got Campbell back in the game.
