George Pickens has been the talk of Pittsburgh Steelers training camp, as he has turned heads with his big-play ability through three weeks of workouts at St. Vincent College.

      The old-school Princeton basketball coach Pete Carril has died. He was 92. A statement from Carril's family says he died Monday. The statement did not give a cause of death.

He coached Princeton for 29 years and won more than 500 games. In 1989, his Tigers nearly knocked off a No. 1 seeded Georgetown team. He later worked as an assistant with the NBA’s Sacramento Kings.
