Sports Briefs: Weber St. guard Wheelwright leaving program
College basketball • Weber State will have to play basketball this season without one of its projected starting guards.
Gelaun Wheelwright has left the program, Wildcats coach Randy Rahe announced Wednesday afternoon, an abrupt departure just four weeks from the start of practice.
"It was a mutual decision between me and Gelaun," Rahe said. "We both decided it was time for him to have a change of environment and move on to a different situation. We appreciate all Gelaun has done for us, and we wish him nothing but the best in his future in whatever he decides to do. We will help along the way in any way we can."
Michigan AD says rivalry in doubt
College football • Michigan and Notre Dame's fading football series seems headed for a break that might last at least a decade.
Both sides aren't discussing the future of the rivalry, according to Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon.
"There haven't been talks and there won't be for a while because we're both scheduled out very far into the future," Brandon said Wednesday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick handed Brandon a letter on the field in South Bend, Ind., that cancelled games from 2015 through 2017 about an hour before the storied programs played last year.
NCAA sued over concussions
