UTEP outlasts Oregon in triple-overtime 91-84

EL PASO, Texas (AP) Konner Tucker hit a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left in triple overtime to break open a one-possession game and lead UTEP to a 91-84 victory over Oregon on Wednesday night.

Junior John Bohannon's second career 3-pointer at the shot clock buzzer gave the Miners an 84-80 lead with 2:09 remaining in the third overtime, but Oregon was back within 86-84 before Tucker's 3-pointer.

Julian Washburn led UTEP (4-5) with 23 points while Bohannon had 21.

Damyean Dotson scored 20 points and Carlos Emory had 18 for the Ducks (9-2), who lost their first true road game of the year.

UTEP had a chance to take a lead with 4 seconds left in regulation, but Bohannon made just 1 of 2 free throws to tie the game at 62-62. Neither team made much of last possessions in the first two overtimes.

With Ross placed on 60-day DL, Nationals agree to 1-year deal with veteran reliever

WASHINGTON  -- The Washington Nationals say they have agreed to a one-year deal with 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit.

The team announced the move Wednesday, along with placing pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in July.

The Nationals didn't release terms of the agreement, though a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that it was for $1 million.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't official at the time.
