ABC planning to interview 1 of Sandusky's victims

From Comcast SportsNetSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- ABC will interview the young man whose 2009 allegations of sexual abuse led to the Penn State scandal and the criminal conviction of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.Attorney Michael Boni, who represents the teenager known in court papers as Victim 1, said Wednesday that ABC landed the first interview with his client, who has a book coming out this fall.It's unclear when the ABC interview would air. ABC didn't immediately return a phone message left Wednesday seeking comment. The New York Post was first to report the ABC exclusive.Sandusky was convicted in June of dozens of criminal counts of sexual abuse of 10 boys on and off campus. At age 68, he awaits sentencing, which likely will send him to prison for the rest of his life.Victim 1 and his mother reported Sandusky to the boy's high school and the Clinton County child protective agency in November 2009. Their complaint triggered a state investigation that last year resulted in criminal charges against Sandusky and against two university officials accused of failing to report suspected child abuse and of lying to a grand jury.According to a lawsuit that Victim 1 filed against Penn State, he met Sandusky about eight years ago, when he was 11 and was a first-year participant in a camp sponsored by Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile. In his second year, he drew Sandusky's attention and accepted invitations to spend nights at the coach's State College home and to attend professional sports events, the lawsuit said.Sandusky was accused of fondling the boy and performing oral sex on him multiple times over a period of several years.Sandusky, who is jailed, didn't testify at trial but maintains his innocence. He has acknowledged he showered with boys but denied molesting them. His wife, Dottie Sandusky, testified that she never saw him doing anything inappropriate with boys he took to their home.

Seth Allen's late 3-pointer lifts Virginia Tech past Clemson

Seth Allen's late 3-pointer lifts Virginia Tech past Clemson

BLACKSBURG, Va. – Seth Allen's 3-pointer with 3.8 seconds left to play carried Virginia Tech to a 71-70 victory over Clemson on Tuesday night.

Zach LeDay scored 19 points for the Hokies (19-8, 8-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who also beat the Tigers by a point on Jan. 22. Virginia Tech won for the third time in four games and moved to 14-1 at home this season.

The loss was the latest in series of excruciating defeats for the Tigers (14-13, 4-11), who dropped their fifth game in their past six outings. Clemson is now 3-10 in games decided by six points or less.

Clemson's Marcquise Reed hit a baseline jumper with 21.6 seconds remaining to give the Tigers a 70-68 lead. Out of a timeout, Allen missed a layup with 10 seconds left, and LeDay got the rebound, but the ball was knocked out of his hands and went out of bounds off Clemson.

Virginia Tech then worked the ball to Allen, who buried a 3-pointer from the top of the key. Allen finished with eight points.

Reed led the Tigers with 18 points.

Report: Wizards interested in T'Wolves' former 1st round pick

Report: Wizards interested in T'Wolves' former 1st round pick

Now that Lou Williams has been dealt from the Lakers to the Rockets, the Wizards and other teams have to look elsewhere for bench options with Thursday's trade deadline looming. According to a new report from ESPN, Washington could turn to Timberwolves guard/forward Shabazz Muhammad.

The connection was first drawn by Marc Stein, who tweeted this on Tuesday:

Muhammad, 24, is an interesting option as a former 14th overall pick who has performed well this season off Minnesota's bench. He's averaging a modest 9.4 points in 19.6 minutes per game, but shoots 47.1 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from three.

Muhammad doesn't rebound or play much defense at all, but he has turned into a fairly lethal shooter, which could come in handy as the Wizards seek a scoring punch for their bench, particularly at the shooting guard position. Even after going 0-for-8 from three in his last four games, Muhammad holds a 48.6 three-point percentage going back to Dec. 21.

It's hard to tell what it would take for the Wizards to get Muhammad, who is set to hit free agency this summer. The Timberwolves have reason to part with him, given they are 13th in the Western Conference and unlikely to make the playoffs. They might as well get something for him while they can, if they don't plan on re-signing him. But if Muhammad becomes attainable for other teams, he could generate considerable interest as a three-point threat.
