CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Hornets announced they've signed free agent point guard Brian Roberts. Roberts, who spent the last two seasons with the Pelicans, is expected to backup Kemba Walker in Charlotte this season.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Southern Conference Commissioner John Iamarino is grateful he's through with the late-night rumors and frantic calls to league members about whether they'll be leaving - at least for now. Iamarino says the SoCon is locked in with 10 members eager to stay part of the Football Championship Subdivision league and aren't looking to bolt.

ROSSBURG, Ohio (AP) - Darrell Wallace Jr. won the Mudsummer Classic on Wednesday night on the dirt at Eldora Speedway for his second Camping World Truck Series victory of the year. Wallace took the lead from Kyle Larson on the final restart on the half-mile oval and held on for his third career series victory.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Mitchell Wilbekin always has been Danny Manning's kind of point guard. So when Manning left Tulsa for Wake Forest, it was only natural Wilbekin would follow. Now the freshman guard is looking to step out of the shadow of big brother Scottie Wilbekin and make a name for himself in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
