College Basketball: Suspended Murray State basketball player Zay Jackson was robbed at gunpoint in Hopkinsville Thursday afternoon. The incident occurred between 12:35 and 1 pm on Tate Street when Jackson was robbed at gunpoint by a black male. Hopkinsville police say the robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Investigators questioned a suspect a few hours later, but no arrests had been made as of this morning.
Jackson was suspended following his arrest in the Murray Walmart parking lot September 10th. As WHOP Sports reported earlier this week, Jackson is scheduled to go on trial on assault and wanton endangerment charges next month.
College Football: Kentucky has lost a commitment for this year. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports three star offensive lineman Jake Boynton had committed last June. The 6-8 265 pound Boynton had selected UK over Syracuse, South Florida and Central Florida.
Golf: Justin Rose shot a 3-under 69 on Friday and sits atop the leaderboard of the
Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship at 8-under par, but the tournament will be
without its top two stars on the weekend as Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods both
missed the cut.
McIlroy, in his first start with new Nike clubs, struggled to a two-day total of 6-over and missed the cut by four shots. Woods would have made the cut at 1-over if not for a two-stroke penalty he incurred for making a drop when he was not allowed relief early in his round.
