Tigers Take Sting Out of LSC, 75-47

MIDDLEBURY -- Middlebury forced 27 turnovers by Lyndon State as the Panthers cruised to a 75-47 win over the Hornets (5-15) Tuesday in Pepin Gym.

The Tigers (12-10) scored 23 points off those turnovers and used crisp passing to amass 25 assists in the game, two shy of the school record.

Middlebury's Scarlett Kirk led all scorers with 19 points in the game, while Emily Gray paced Lyndon with 13 points and eight rebounds. Dannika Dobrowski scored eight, while Donna Lawson had a team-high seven boards.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as Arkansas opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 80-69 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night.

The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators -- who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier.

Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field.

Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09.

Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14.

MLB

Cardinals RHP Carpenter Likely Out for '13

ST. LOUIS -- Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals this season and his career may be over because of a nerve injury that kept him out most of last year.

General manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday that Carpenter has renewed numbness and some bruising in his right shoulder and hand. He will get an additional medical evaluation, but Mozeliak says Carpenter is unlikely to pitch again.

An alumnus of Trinity High School in Manchester, N.H., Carpenter had surgery in July for the nerve injury and returned to pitch three games down the stretch and three in the postseason.

Carpenter, 37, is 144-94 for his career and 10-4 with a 3.00 ERA in 18 postseason starts.

BRANDON WEBB: Former Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb, who won the NL Cy Young Award in 2006 before being beset by arm injuries, is retiring.

The right-hander's agents, Mike Montana and Jonathan Maurer, confirmed Monday night that Webb was calling it a career.

"He has worked so hard over the past three years to come back but his shoulder just wouldn't allow it to happen," Montana said in an email.

The 33-year-old Webb hasn't pitched in the majors since 2009 because of shoulder problems. He came up with Arizona in 2003 and had a 2.84 ERA in 180 innings. He pitched more than 200 innings each of the next five seasons for the Diamondbacks, using his heavy sinker to win a Cy Young and earn three All-Star selections. He finished second in the Cy Young voting in both 2007 and '08, winning a total of 40 games those seasons.

SKIING

Pennsylvania Skier Dies After Collision at Aspen

ASPEN, Colo. -- Officials say a 48-year-old skier from Pennsylvania died after a collision with another skier on Aspen Mountain.

Pitkin County coroner's officials said Tuesday that Natalie Egleston died at a hospital Monday of a traumatic brain injury. Her death was ruled accidental. County officials didn't release her hometown.

Aspen Skiing Co. officials say Egleston was unconscious after the collision with another female skier Monday afternoon. Resort officials say the other skier, whose name wasn't released, sustained minor injuries. Both skiers were wearing helmets.

Sheriff Joe DiSalvo tells The Aspen Times he was told it appeared Egleston may have stopped to clean her goggles when she was hit by the other skier.

Resort officials say the accident happened on Spar Gulch, just below where an expert run exits.

NASCAR

Speeds Up for Drivers at Darlington Tire Test

DARLINGTON, S.C. -- Carl Edwards and several other Sprint Cup stars gave the new, faster Gen-6 race car a thumbs-up after a Goodyear tire test Tuesday at Darlington Raceway.

Edwards said the digital speedometer on his Ford Fusion hit 193 mph right before entering turn three, a typically unheard of speed at the ultra-tricky track.

Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Paul Menard and Juan Pablo Montoya were also at Darlington for the daylong session. NASCAR teams have previously tested the car at Daytona International Speedway and Charlotte Motorspeedway.

Edwards found the new machine to be faster and racers should expect better handling and tighter racing when the circuit returns to NASCAR's oldest superspeedway for the Southern 500 on May 11.

Then again, Darlington may not be the place for higher speeds. The track has a reputation as one of the most fearsome layouts in NASCAR, with its misshapen corners and narrow straightaways.

SWIMMING

British 2-Time Olympic Champion Adlington Retires at 23

LONDON -- Two-time Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington has retired from competitive swimming at 23.

The Briton won in the 400 and 800 meters at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and collected two bronze medals at the London Games last year.

Announcing her retirement on Tuesday, Adlington said she "certainly can't compete" with younger swimmers any more.
