Sports briefs: USC football, basketball players to get 4-year deals
First Published Jun 23 2014 10:45 pm • Last Updated Jun 23 2014 10:45 pm

college athletics • Southern California athletic director Pat Haden announced Monday that the school will now offer four-year scholarships to scholarship players on the football team and in the men’s and women’s basketball programs. The policy, which becomes effective July 1, represents a change from USC’s current practice of offering players in those sports one-year renewable scholarships.

Haden said USC is taking the action in the hopes of helping to lead the effort "to refocus on student-athlete welfare on and off the field."

Hockey Hall of Fame will induct six

Hockey • Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Peter Forsberg and Rob Blake are headed into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The four players were among six selected Monday for induction in November. The late Pat Burns will be enshrined as a coach in the builder category along with referee Bill McCreary.

Hasek, who was known as "the Dominator," won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender six times. He won two Hart Trophies as league MVP in 1997 and 1998 with Buffalo. He was with Detroit when he hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2002.

Modano had 561 career goals and 1,374 points, both of which are records for players born in the U.S. The Michigan native was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars, became a star with the franchise in Dallas and ended his career with Detroit.

Forsberg and Blake are in the Triple Gold Club, for players who have won a Cup, Olympic and world titles.
