IUK basketball team drops season opener

PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. — The IU Kokomo men’s basketball team dropped a 75-62 decision to Trinity Christian in both teams’ season opener Friday night.

The Trolls led all the way. They jumped to a 20-2 lead and took a 40-21 lead into halftime. IUK closed to within 10 (52-42) with 10:56 left, but the Cougars were unable to draw any closer.

Spencer Khrin led IUK with 17 points. He made 7 of 9 shots from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-land. Jordan King added 12 points, Randall Lowe had nine and Jerome Campbell had eight.

IUK took care of the ball, committing just four turnovers and finishing with a plus-14 turnover differential. But Trinity dominated the glass. Trinity’s Jake VanDenBerg had a game-high 19 rebounds and the Trolls had a 54-25 rebounding advantage.

N.Y. gives Jeter $12M; Nathan leaves Texas

NEW YORK (AP) — Derek Jeter and the Yankees worked out a $12 million, one-year deal that kept the captain from going on the open market, while Joe Nathan, Jose Veras, Ubaldo Jimenez, Kurt Suzuki and Franklin Gutierrez were among the players who became free agents Friday.

The Mets declined their option on injured pitcher Johan Santana, while Boston exercised its option on pitcher Jon Lester.

Jeter, who turns 40 next June, was limited to 17 games this year after breaking his ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He spent four stints on the disabled list in the most frustrating season of his 19-year career. His deal had included a $9.5 million player option.
