Report: FAU to hire Charlie Partridge as new head football coach

By John Evenson

The Florida Atlantic Owls are all set to hire Charlie Partridge as their new head football coach according to Dieter Kurtenbach of the Sun Sentinel, and the Plantation native could accept the offer as early as Sunday.

Partridge would be coming off the role of Arkansas' associate head coach this past season, and spent the previous five seasons before that at Wisconsin. He has a strong reputation for recruiting South Florida talent, which would be a strong point for the Owls heading into their second season in Conference U.S.A.

Partridge would replace Carl Pelini as permanent head coach, who resigned mid-season after allegations surfaced of illegal drug use.

UNDATED (AP) -- Memphis, the winningest team in the NBA with a mark of 10-2, is home this evening to Boston. The Grizzlies are unbeaten in six home games this season. They could be shorthanded for the game as seven members of the team are dealing with a stomach virus and their status is uncertain.

On the other side of the ledger are the Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost all 11 games played this season and tonight they will attempt to get into the win column with a home game against Phoenix.

Two division leaders are meeting in Portland as the Blazers, who top the Northwest Division, are playing host to Central leader Chicago. The Blazers have won their last five games while the Bulls lost last night to the Kings in Sacramento.

Two teams riding a losing streak are squaring off tonight in Oklahoma City as the Thunder play host to the Brooklyn Nets. The home team has dropped its last four games while the visiting Nets have lost five in a row.

The rest of the games tonight feature the Magic at Charlotte, the Hawks home to the Pistons, Milwaukee in Toronto for a game with the Raptors, the Spurs at Minnesota, Cleveland playing the Wizards in Washington, the Lakers at Dallas, Denver home to the Pelicans and Utah at Golden State.


UNDATED (AP) -- The NHL announced yesterday that because of all the snow in the Buffalo area that tonight's game between the Sabres and the Rangers has been postponed. No makeup date has been announced.

The loss of that game means there are just three games on ice this evening. In Pittsburgh the Penguins are hosting the Islanders in their second meeting of the season. Back on Oct. 18 Pittsburgh skated off the ice with a 3-1 win. A year ago the Pens took three of four games between the clubs. Tonight's game is Pittsburgh's first since announcing Wednesday that forward Pascal Dupuis (doo-PWEE') will miss the next six months because of a blood clot.

The Blue Jackets are home tonight to the Bruins. This is the first of three games between the clubs this season. Boston is coming off a 2-0 win over the Blues while the Jackets were 5-0 losers to the Red Wings in their last game.

And in the final game of the night New Jersey is skating at Edmonton. This is their first meeting of the season.


UNDATED (AP) -- The No. 1 team in the AP men's Top-25 basketball poll is back in action this evening. Kentucky's Wildcats, winners of all three games this season, are playing host to Boston University.

In other Top-5 games tonight No. 3 Duke is home to Temple, seventh-ranked Louisville is playing host to Marshall, No. 8 Florida is entertaining Louisiana-Monroe and ninth-ranked Virginia is on the home floor against George Washington.
