ESPN is reporting that Texas has suspended Tarrell Brown and Tyrell Gatewood prior to next Saturday’s battle betweeen the no. 2 Longhorns and no. 1 ranked Ohio State.

This sordid tale does nothing, however, to take the shine off UT’s Cat Osterman putting on another pitching clinic with her 14 K, one-hitter as Team USA captured the Women’s World Softball Championship with a 3-0 defeat of Japan.

There’s no truth to the rumor Gilbert Arenas was advised to go home before the tournament started, as he didn’t have much chance of making the squad, anyway.
