Judge: Keeping Sandusky lawsuit in Philadelphia not a burden (Yahoo Sports)
A judge presiding over a civil lawsuit against Penn State and ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky by one of the accusers who testified in Sandusky's criminal child sex abuse trial says keeping the case in Philadelphia doesn't present a burden to potential witnesses or to the university. Penn State is based in State College, about 200 miles northwest of Philadelphia, and has appealed Judge Angelo Foglietta's decision to keep the lawsuit there. The judge last week issued an opinion that said Penn State ''failed to establish more than inconvenience'' if he did not move the litigation to Centre County, where the university is headquartered. ''PSU is not a small sole proprietorship or 'mom & pop' store where the absence of a single person would truly be burdensome and oppressive to its daily operations.'' Penn State is appealing the decision in Superior Court.

No. 1 Kentucky beats No. 18 Arkansas 84-67 to clinch SEC (Yahoo Sports)
Of all the impressive wins top-ranked Kentucky has collected in marquee games this season, Saturday's 84-67 dismantling of No. 18 Arkansas speaks a little louder than most. The Wildcats clinched the Southeastern Conference regular-season title, and the Razorbacks rarely had a chance after the early minutes, a common theme in many of Kentucky's wins over ranked opponents. Andrew Harrison and Trey Lyles each scored 18 points as unbeaten Kentucky (29-0, 16-0) dominated the long-awaited matchup of the SEC's top two teams on both ends. Kentucky ended a three-game losing streak against the Razorbacks (23-6, 12-4) by beating them at their own high-speed, physical game, leading by as many as 31 points with 8 minutes left.
