Basketball

  • Suspended Rockets forward Eddie Griffin is being investigated by police, who were told the player beat and shot at a woman at his home. No warrant had been issued for Griffin's arrest and police haven't found him, police spokesman Alvin Wright said Saturday.

    Golf

  • Vijay Singh thinks about winning the PGA Tour money title just about every minute that he's not on the golf course. When he walked off the 18th green in the Funai Classic at Disney, the goal never seemed more within his reach. Singh was in a four-way tie for the lead. Tiger Woods, whom he trails by $171,239, was nowhere to be found. Woods stumbled on the back nine with three bogeys in four holes and shot 71, leaving him six shots behind in a tie for 14th.

    Jim Thorpe did not have an ideal finish, but his closest competitors did not gain any ground in the third round of the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Thorpe bogeyed the 18th hole to complete a 2-under-par 70 but maintained a three-shot lead heading into Sunday's final round.
