Revis Turns Self In Following Fight Claims
PITTSBURGH (AP) - New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has turned himself in to Pittsburgh police following charges alleging he was involved in a fight with two men last weekend. Revis entered a Municipal Courts building Friday. He didn't answer questions on his way in. A docket sheet filed Thursday says Revis faces counts of aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and terroristic threats over the Sunday altercation. Revis' attorney says Revis was physically assaulted by a group of at least five people. He says Revis "feared for his safety" and sought medical attention. He hasn't described Revis' injuries. Police say the fight started when a man began recording a video of Revis and Revis grabbed his phone and tried to delete it. They say other men joined in and two men claimed they were punched and knocked out.

Blue Jackets Beat Weary Penguins In Overtime
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Brandon Dubinsky scored just over a minute into overtime as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 on Friday night. Dubinsky lifted a shot over Matt Murray as he skated into the slot to win it for the Blue Jackets after a fast, taut game amid a playoff atmosphere at sold-out Nationwide Arena. Sergei Bobrovsky had 38 saves, and Ryan Murray scored in the second period as Columbus moved within a point of Pittsburgh for second place in the rough Metropolitan Division. Murray made 37 saves, and Ian Cole scored for the Penguins, who were playing the second game of a back-to-back. The Penguins lost for the first time in four games.

High School Hoops Hit Playoff Hardwood
The WPIAL Basketball Playoffs got underway Friday night with eight Washington/Greene County teams in action. Trinity, Wash High and California girls were opening-round winners. Burgettstown and Ringgold girls, Avella and West Greene boys were all eliminated with first-round losses.

Isaiah Robinson scored 28 points to lead Wash High past Ellwood City, 57-29, in the Class 3A boys opening round. The Little Prexies were the only winner of five Washington/Greene County teams in action Saturday. Charleroi and Burgettstown boys, Avella and Jeff-Morgan girls were eliminated.
