Weekend Sports in Brief
ENSENADA, Mexico (AP) A 37-foot racing yacht was reduced to debris that looked ``like it had gone through a blender,'' a searcher said Sunday after the boat apparently collided with a larger vessel, killing three sailors and leaving a fourth missing.
The U.S. Coast Guard, the Mexican navy and civilian vessels scoured the waters off the shore of both countries for the missing sailor before suspending their search Sunday evening.
A crew of four sailors was aboard the Aegean, which was reported missing Saturday during a 124-mile race from Newport Beach, Calif., to Ensenada, Mexico.
It was California's second deadly accident this month involving an ocean race.
CHICAGO (AP) - Bulls star Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Rose was helped off the court late in Chicago's 103-91 playoff-opening victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, a staggering blow for a team eyeing a championship run.
MIAMI (AP) - Knicks rookie guard Iman Shumpert will miss the rest of the postseason after tearing a left knee ligament in the third quarter of New York's Game 1 loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday.
BOSTON (AP) - Boston Red Sox slugger Ted Williams' 1949 MVP plaque sold Saturday for nearly $300,000 at the first major auction of his sports, military and personal memorabilia.
Nearly 800 items sold at Fenway Park, the world's oldest baseball park and home field of the only team that Williams played for during his 1939-1960 major league career. Some of the proceeds from the auction will benefit The Jimmy Fund, a charity affiliated with Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for which the slugger helped raise money during his lifetime.
A baseball in pristine condition that Babe Ruth autographed for Williams sold for $195,500. Williams' 1957 Babe Ruth Sultan of Swat Award for outstanding batting achievement sold for $230,000. Other top items included his 1949 American League MVP plaque, which fetched $299,000, a used Red Sox road jersey from 1955 that sold for $126,500 and Williams' Hall of Fame induction ring, which went for nearly $110,000.
An 8-year-old Texas boy and his parents were the winning bidders on Williams' 1957 Silver Bat award, which sold for nearly $195,500, and Williams' 1960 All-Star game bat, which went for $80,500.
NEW YORK (AP) - Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young apologized to his team and fans Friday, just before getting arraigned on a hate crime harassment charge for a fight at his hotel during which police say he yelled anti-Semitic epithets.
Young posted a $5,000 bond at a brief hearing in Manhattan court and was released less than an hour before the Tigers' game against the Yankees. He faces a misdemeanor aggravated harassment charge that entails targeting someone for his or her religious beliefs. If convicted, he could face up to a year in jail.

Southern Miss is set to hire Morehead State's Donnie Tyndall as its next men's basketball coach, said a person familiar with the move.
Tyndall has agreed to a four-year deal and is expected to be introduced on Monday afternoon, the person told The Associated Press Saturday on condition of anonymity because no announcement by either school has been made.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Kyle Busch capped a perfect weekend Saturday night by winning the spring race at Richmond for the fourth consecutive year.
The victory snapped a 22-race winless streak for Busch, and came a day after he went to Victory Lane for the first time as a Nationwide Series team owner. Kurt Busch drove his younger brother's car to its first victory Friday night.
As he celebrated his first Sprint Cup Series win as a driver, Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards both believed the win was taken from them.
A caution erased Stewart's lead with 13 laps left and Edwards was penalized for jumping a restart with 81 laps remaining.
