Mark Cuban Under NBA Investigation for Sexual Assault Allegations

Mark Cuban Under NBA Investigation for Sexual Assault Allegations

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stands on stage before a news conference in Dallas. (AP Photo/Ron Jenkins, File)DALLAS (AP) — The NBA is reviewing 2011 allegations of sexual assault against Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and the investigation that led to a decision by prosecutors not to pursue the case.League spokesman Mike Bass said Wednesday the NBA was looking into the matter, a day after a weekly alternative newspaper in Portland, Oregon, reported a woman’s claim that Cuban put his hands down her pants and touched her inappropriately while they were taking a photo at a Portland nightclub.“The NBA league office is reviewing the 2011 allegations against Mark Cuban and the subsequent findings from the Portland police investigation,” Bass said.The report Tuesday in the Willamette Week came about a week and half after a Sports Illustrated account that portrayed a hostile work environment for women in the front office of the Mavericks. While Cuban wasn’t implicated, the SI report raised questions about what he knew and when.Cuban flatly denied the woman’s allegations and provided a prosecutors’ report detailing the decision not to file charges.Prosecutors wrote that “there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant’s statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim.” The report also said the woman didn’t want to proceed with the allegation.The Portland weekly’s report included a transcript of Cuban’s phone conversation with a police detective, with the Dallas owner strongly denying the claim while expressing concern that he would have difficulty defending himself in court.In the SI report, former Mavericks CEO Terdema Ussery was accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to several women. Ussery was investigated by the team over similar claims in 1998, two years before Cuban bought the team. He worked for Cuban for 15 years.Cuban told SI that he fired human resources director Buddy Pittman after learning details of the magazine’s report, which included claims that superiors were seen as unresponsive to complaints.The SI report said team website reporter Earl Sneed was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the Mavericks, including a guilty plea in a case that was dismissed when he met the conditions of the agreement. Sneed also was fired. read more

Frank Epitropoulos leaves Ohio State football program

As Ohio State’s 2014 training camp continues, one Buckeye’s career has ended.Redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Frank Epitropoulos, an Upper Arlington, Ohio, native, has decided to end his time with the OSU football team to focus on his pre-medical/dental academic program, according to an OSU press release.In the release, Epitropoulos expressed his gratitude before explaining his decision to leave the team.“I want to thank my teammates and coaching staff for all of their help and support. I wish them the best this season,” Epitropoulos said. “I love being an Ohio State Buckeye, but I am also competing to get into medical school and that is very important to me and my family. I am already in my third year at Ohio State and the process to begin applying to medical schools is not far off. After consulting with my family, I have therefore decided to end my athletic career so I can focus solely on academics.”Epitropoulos played in four games for the Buckeyes during his redshirt-freshman season in 2013.OSU also confirmed a couple of training camp injuries in its most recent release.Following a tweet from the linebacker yesterday, OSU confirmed that freshman linebacker Kyle Berger has torn his ACL and is set for surgery next week. In addition, OSU confirmed that freshman defensive lineman Dylan Thompson has a knee injury that will not require surgery.According to the release, both players are out indefinitely.OSU is set to continue training camp from the Ackerman Road fields throughout the remainder of this week. read more

Football Ohio State quarterbacks flash potential but lack consistency in Spring Game

Football Ohio State quarterbacks flash potential but lack consistency in Spring Game

Sophomore quarterback Justin Fields (1) runs down the field in the first half of the 2019 Spring Game on April 13. Gray beat Scarlet 35-17. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorSophomore Justin Fields and redshirt freshman Matthew Baldwin traded their final blows of the spring in the quarterback battle Saturday, although the “blows” were few and far between.Fields completed less than half his throws but flashed great running ability, while the Baldwin fared better through the air in terms of yardage and completion percentage, but threw two interceptions and recorded a fumble.“They both flashed at times, still a work in progress,” head coach Ryan Day said. “I thought that they gave some of the receivers a chance at times.”Both athletes provided inklings of their full potential.Fields connected with senior wide receiver Binjimen Victor for a 98-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The pass traveled 38 yards downfield, thrown up the right sideline directly into Victor’s arms overtop diving sophomore cornerback Lloyd McFarquhar.This came a few drives after Fields showcased his running potential by outracing Team Scarlet’s defense for a five-yard read option touchdown run. “I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface,” Fields said. “I know I can be better, I’ve done better at practice, of course there’s always room to improve so I’m just gonna continue to work.”Baldwin threw a solid downfield pass of his own in the back of the endzone to freshman wide receiver Garrett Wilson, and finished the more accurate passer, connecting on 20 of his 36 pass attempts.Inconsistencies persisted in a number of Baldwin’s throws, however. A 40-yard pass to redshirt senior wide receiver K.J. Hill was underthrown, even though it was caught. Another ball intended for Wilson went sailing out-of-bounds a few plays later.That’s without bringing up the two interceptions, one thrown behind freshman H-back Jaelen Gill and another ill-advised toss into double coverage.“I thought Matthew made a couple really nice throws down the field,” Day said. “We turned the ball over, threw it to them, which is good for the defense.”While Fields threw likely the best pass of the day on the Victor touchdown, a 4-of-13 finish through the air leaves much to be desired. The “thud” tackling design of the Spring Game also limited what he could do on the ground, but Fields finished with 38 yards rushing, 30 of which came on one play, and the score.“Sometimes it’s hard when you’re not in the tackle situation, is it a sack, is it not,” Day said. “Justin, he can kinda create on the edge a little bit, didn’t get a chance to see that as much.”Baldwin’s never taken a snap in a collegiate game, and Fields hasn’t started in any. Consistency takes refinement, and Day recognizes both quarterbacks are still new to the collegiate game.That greenness likely contributed to many of Saturday’s struggles in the passing game.“It’s one thing to say it, it’s one thing to see it on film, it’s another thing to do it in the 7-on-7 when there’s no rush, and then when the rush is going,” Day said. “There’s nothing that replaces experience. The more these guys get a chance to play and run the offense, the better they’ll be.”Both quarterbacks will try and continue improving heading into the fall. Day says the competition is still open.“I don’t really know right now [who the leader is],” Day said. “I don’t think, right now, that we’re gonna make a decision on that. I think it’ll continue through the preseason.” read more
