Oly Heinz has the same birthday as Rick Pitino. I think that's just about all you need to know about the young man.

I_medium Tom Jurich is one of four ADs up for Athletic Director of the Year at tonight's Sports Business Awards ceremony in New York City. Here he is styling on the red carpet (I'd imagine it's a red carpet) before the event.

I_medium Prosecutors in King County (WA) have asked for more time to review the allegations against Terrence Williams.

Williams was released from the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent on Monday after he posted $25,000 bail. His attorney, Aaron Kiviat, had said at the bail hearing Monday that the claims by the alleged victim was not the full story.

According to court documents, Williams was dropping off his son at the boy's mother's home in Kent when she attempted to speak to Williams.

"The mother came outside with her current boyfriend, and wanted to talk to Terrence about some disparaging remarks that Terrence had made in the past about her other children. Terrence refused to get out of the vehicle so the mother started banging on his hood, insisting that they talk," the documents said.

"While seated in the vehicle Terrence pulled out a handgun, stuck it out the driver's side window and aimed it at the mother," prosecutors allege.

I_medium Someone give this step-mother an award.
