Died
At age 69, Paul (Duke) Hogue (above), the center on the University of Cincinnati teams that won back-to-back NCAA titles in the early 1960s. In 1962 Hogue who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four for a performance that included 36 points in the semis against UCLA. Following the Bearcats' win in the title game over Ohio State, the 6'9" Hogue was taken by the Knicks with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft. He played two seasons in an injury-shortened career. "Paul was a strong athlete," former Bearcats teammate Oscar Robertson told The Cincinnati Enquirer. "Boy, oh boy. He was a mountain. You couldn't move him when he got underneath the basket."

Won
By the U.S., the Solheim Cup. The Americans retained women's golf's equivalent of the Ryder Cup by defeating the Europeans 16--12 at Rich Harvest Farms outside of Chicago. The competition was tied at eight heading into Sunday's 12 singles matches, which the U.S. dominated after a slow start. The event's breakout star was Michelle Wie. The 19-year-old, who has never won a pro tournament despite being in contention several times, was clutch all weekend, going 3-0-1. "It was the most fun I've had playing," said Wie. "Every hole seemed like walking down 18 of a major championship, times 100."

Arrested
And charged with assaulting a police officer, Ravens rookie linebacker Tony Fein. A security guard in a restaurant thought he saw another man pass a gun to Fein; it was a cellphone. When Fein—a 27-year-old Army veteran who served in Iraq before playing football at Ole Miss—was questioned by police, he allegedly became belligerent and shoved the officer to the ground. He was charged with a misdemeanor. Fein's agent disputed that Fein shoved the officer and alleged that racial profiling led to the incident.

Converted
By Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (right), the deciding extra point in Cincinnati's 7--6 preseason win over the Patriots last Thursday. Ochocinco (né Johnson) was pressed into duty after regular kicker Shayne Graham was sidelined by a groin injury. The Bengals scored on a 24-yard pass from J.T. O'Sullivan to Chris Henry late in the second quarter, and Ochocinco, who had three catches for 69 yards, split the uprights to make the score 7--3. "Everyone has to remember, I've always said that soccer is my Number 1 sport," he said. "I think Ronaldinho would be proud of me right now."

Hit
By Titans punter A.J. Trapasso in the first game played at Cowboys Stadium, the facility's giant HD replay board. The screen—160 feet long and suspended 90 feet above the field—is the centerpiece of the $1.2 billion stadium. (The punt was replayed.) Dallas owner Jerry Jones played down the incident, saying, "You don't need to move it. You gotta be trying to [hit] it." But Tennessee's regular punter, Craig Hentrich, pointed out that he hit the board a dozen times in warmups. "Some of the guys in the league wouldn't be able to punt here if it's not raised," Hentrich said. "I guess they should have tested things out before they put that thing in place."

Indicted
On misdemeanor assault and theft charges, Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane (below), 20. An Erie County, N.Y., grand jury dismissed a felony robbery charge stemming from an incident in which Kane and his 21-year-old cousin, James Kane, allegedly attacked a Buffalo cabbie when he did not have 20 cents to make change for a fare. The Kanes face a year in jail if convicted; they pleaded not guilty. "Today was a tough day for us," Patrick Kane said after entering his plea. "I just reiterated to the judge that I'm not guilty of any crime, and I'm confident in the legal process." Kane was the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NHL draft and Chicago's second-leading scorer last season.

Withheld
From the Broncos' preseason trip to Seattle, disgruntled wide receiver Brandon Marshall, increasing speculation that he could be shipped out by new coach Josh McDaniels. Earlier this month Marshall, who asked for a trade in June after the team refused to renegotiate his contract, was acquitted of two battery charges stemming from an alleged incident with a former girlfriend. A team official reportedly told his teammates not to gloat over the acquittal by publicly saying they were happy for Marshall. The 25-year-old, who had 104 catches for 1,265 yards last year, then criticized the team, saying there were "trust issues." Marshall was left off the roster for last Friday's 27--13 loss to the Seahawks.

Sidelined
For the rest of the season by what his agent called "a very treatable form of clinical depression," A's pitcher Justin Duchscherer. The righthander, who had a breakout year in 2008 (10--8, 2.54 ERA) after moving from the bullpen to the Oakland rotation, has missed all of this season with elbow and hip injuries. He made three rehab starts in the minors but was held out of his last two for what the team said was a "nonbaseball-related issue." Damon Lapa, Duchscherer's agent, told the San Francisco Chronicle, "It's something that I think he's probably been battling for some time, and he recently made the really difficult decision that he needs to put his career on hold."
