Former West Virginia Coach Schaus Dies

Many of Barkley's on-air observations, jokes and insults are given test runs -- sprinkled with profanity. Conversations from the viewing room carry over onto the set. "Charles just has to watch his language a little more," Johnson said. "It's like we just happen to be on the air."

The Chicago Bulls say All-Star point guard Derrick Rose suffered "no significant injury" to his hip or lower back after a hard foul by Orlando's Dwight Howard. The team said yesterday that X-rays and an MRI revealed no major damage, one day after Rose left the game with a bruised right hip.
