No. 2 Tennessee women top Duke

DURHAM, N.C. - Candace Parker's leaner with 22 seconds remaining lifted No. 2 Tennessee past No. 9 Duke 67-64 on Monday night, snapping the Blue Devils' 24-game home winning streak.

Parker led Tennessee with 17 points but kept Duke alive with 3.4 seconds left when she missed the first of two free throws that would have iced it.

After she sank her second attempt, Duke inbounded to Chante Black, and she hesitated while looking for sharpshooter Abby Waner, and Waner's 65-foot heave harmlessly hit the rim at the buzzer.

Duke never led in the second half but tied it four times, the final time coming when Waner dribbled off Joy Cheek's screen and knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the key that made it 64-all with 45.8 seconds left.

Knoblauch will talk to House committee

WASHINGTON - Former Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch agreed Monday to talk to a House committee investigating drug use in baseball, and the session was postponed until later this week.

The committee issued a subpoena for Knoblauch last week after he failed to respond to an invitation to testify. Knoblauch originally was to give a deposition Jan. 24, a session that was postponed until today. Now, Knoblauch will give a deposition or transcribed interview Friday.

The appearance is in preparation for a Feb. 13 hearing, which is to include Knoblauch, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte. Also scheduled to testify are Brian McNamee, the former personal trainer for Clemens and Pettitte, and former Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski.
