OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Marcus Jordan, one of Michael Jordan's sons, has been fined 250 after pleading no contest to disturbing the peace during a disturbance outside a Nebraska hotel last month. Jordan was in Douglas County Court on Thursday with his attorney, Steve Lefler. Jordan declined to comment. Jordan was in Omaha for the U.S. Olympic swim trials and was arrested after police responded to a call at a hotel early July 1. When police arrived, hotel security was trying to subdue Jordan as he argued with two women in the hotel driveway. A police report said Jordan was "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative." Jordan averaged 13.7 points as a junior at Central Florida last season. He is not returning for his senior season.
NEW YORK -- Shamorie Ponds scored 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting to become the third freshman in St. John's history to score 500 points in a season, and the Red Storm rallied to beat Georgetown 86-80 on Saturday to end a two-game skid.
Bashir Ahmed and Frederico Mussini scored 16 apiece for St. John's (13-16, 7-9 Big East), which was outrebounded 36-29 but scored 25 points off 22 Georgetown turnovers.
Ahmed's 3-pointer put St. John's up by seven, 48-41, early in the second half. Georgetown closed to within a point four times but the Red Storm found answers and led by nine, 76-67, on Amar Alibegovic's dunk with 2:14 left. Georgetown scored six straight and closed to 78-77, then to 82-80 on L.J. Peak's 3-point play with 25 seconds left. Marcus Lovett and Malik Ellison each hit two from the line and St. John's held on.
Mussini scored 11 in a 17-0 St. John's run for a 29-18 lead, but Georgetown rallied with a 17-0 run and led 36-35 at halftime.
Rodney Pryor scored 22 points with five 3-pointers and Peak added 20 for Georgetown (14-15, 5-11), which has lost three straight.
The Capitals have a quick turnaround after their Friday night home win over the Oilers as the team heads to Nashville to take on Filip Forsberg, P.K. Subban and the Nashville Predators.
Forsberg, as many of you will remember, was the Capitals' first-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. The team then traded him to Nashville for Martin Erat and Michael Latta. Forsberg is now one of the Predators top stars and just recently recorded back-to-back hat tricks.
