North Carolina coach Butch Davis suspended defensive tackle Marvin Austin indefinitely on Wednesday for violating unspecified team rules. "This decision is not a result of the ongoing NCAA review," Davis said in a brief statement issued by the school. "Marvin has violated team rules and has neglected his responsibilities to the team." Austin, a senior, has been projected as a possible NFL first-round pick. He will not play Saturday night when the No. 18 Tar Heels face No. 21 LSU in Atlanta.

For the second straight game, Manny Ramirez watched from a few feet away as one of his new teammates hit a game-winning homer. Ramirez provided only a bloop single in his debut, but he was on deck when Paul Konerko hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to give the White Sox a 6-4 win and three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday.
The Boston Celtics have signed free agent guard Delonte West. West was with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, but was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves last month -- He was waived soon after. West is likely to earn the veteran minimum, which for a sixth-year player is a little more than $1 million. Should he make the opening day roster, West will be ineligible for the first 10 games of the season after being suspended by the league following a guilty plea on weapons charges in the state of Maryland.
