College football • The folksy ESPN college football commentator Carroll "Beano" Cook has died.

The 81 year-old commentator had worked for the sports network since 1986 and was the sports information director at his alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, from 1956 to 1966. The university announced Thursday that Cook had died in his sleep.

Cook worked for the St. Petersburg Times, Miami Dolphins, the Mutual Radio Network, and CBS before ESPN.

College basketball • Iowa State lost perhaps the nation's most versatile player, Royce White, and standout senior guard Chris Allen from the team that went 23-11.

Helping fill that gap is senior forward Will Clyburn, a 6-foot-7 forward who led Utah in scoring at 17.1 points per game in 2010-11.

Clyburn won't be eased into anything after spending the past year on the sidelines. He'll be asked to contribute significantly and immediately to a team that lost its top three scorers.
