Rouse Leads Stony Brook Past Vermont 65-48

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- Marcus Rouse came off the bench to score 16 points, and Jameel Warney had 12 points and 10 rebounds as Stony Brook defeated Vermont 65-48 Friday night in a matchup of the America East Conference leaders.

Tommy Brenton added 13 points, six assists and six rebounds for the Seawolves (19-6, 10-2), who won their 16th consecutive regular-season home conference game.

Stony Brook, which led 35-29 at halftime, started the second half with a 20-5 run. Warney scored eight of the Seawolves' first 13 points in that stretch.

Rouse scored 11 of his points in the first half and finished the game 6 of 8 from the field, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range.

Sandro Carissimo scored 14 points and Luke Apfeld 12 for Vermont (16-9, 9-4). Clancy Rugg, who scored 19 when the Catamounts beat Stony Brook 81-73 at home on Jan. 18, was scoreless this time.


Packers Release DB Charles Woodson

Charles Woodson is on the market.

The Green Bay Packers released the 36-year-old defensive back Friday with two years left on his contract.

The Packers clear about $10 million in cap space by releasing Woodson. "The Packers told Charles they're going in a different direction," agent Charles Poston said. "Charles told me he still wants to play -- for a Super Bowl contender."

Woodson signed a five-year deal before the 2010 season that was worth as much as $55 million. He missed nine games during the 2012 regular season because of a broken right collarbone and played in two postseason games for the Packers in his seventh year with the franchise.

Woodson was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1998. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him out of Michigan with the No. 4 overall pick.

He's the only player in NFL history with touchdowns off interceptions in six straight seasons, a feat he pulled off each year from 2006 to 2011. He went to the Pro Bowl every year from 2008-11.

COLTS: In Indianapolis, the Colts will not re-sign former league sacks champion Dwight Freeney or oft-injured receiver Austin Collie.

Collie just couldn't stay healthy. He wound up on season-ending injured reserve in September with a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee and there were continual concerns about a series of concussions he had.

Freeney, Indy's career sacks leader, turns 33 next week. His sacks totals declined for a third straight year in 2012, this time after moving from defensive end to outside linebacker.

Team owner Jim Irsay said in a statement that few players had more impact on the Colts' success than Freeney, who Irsay calls an "artist" and a "joy to watch."


Langer Shoots 62 To Take ACE Group Classic Lead

NAPLES, Fla. -- Bernhard Langer holed out from the fairway for an eagle on the par-4 10th and finished with a 10-under 62 on Friday to take a three-stroke in the Champions Tour's ACE Group Classic.

Langer had three birdies on the front nine on TwinEagles' Talon Course, then played the back nine in 7-under 29 with the eagle and five birdies -- including four in a row on Nos. 13-16.

The 55-year-old German star, a 16-time winner on the 50-and-over tour, won the event in 2011 at The Quarry.

Bob Tway was second after a 65, and Tom Pernice Jr., Jay Don Blake and John Huston shot 66.

Light rain fell throughout the morning, with a brief heavier shower. A cold front was expected to come through Saturday and kick up wind to 15 to 20 mph with high temperatures in the low 60s.
