Shock’s Hornbuckle

suspended 2 games

NEW YORK (AP) — Tulsa Shock guard Alexis Hornbuckle has been suspended for two games by the WNBA on Wednesday, a day after pleading guilty to a charge for driving while impaired by alcohol.

The incident took place last year in Detroit, where the Shock played in nearby Auburn Hills, Mich. The team moved to Tulsa in the offseason.

Hornbuckle will miss the Shock’s games against Minnesota on Friday and at Chicago on Saturday.

Sean Sutton hearing

delayed 2 months

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — A court hearing for former Oklahoma State basketball coach Sean Sutton has been delayed by two months.

Sutton had been due to appear Monday in Payne County District Court for a preliminary hearing on four felony charges alleging that he illegally obtained a series of prescription drugs but that hearing was postponed until Aug. 13.

District Attorney Rob Hudson says the hearing was pushed back because Sutton remains in a rehab program he entered after his arrest in February.

Sutton went 39-29 in two seasons as Oklahoma State’s coach before resigning under pressure in April 2008. He had inherited the program after his father, Eddie Sutton, stepped down following a drunk driving crash.

His preliminary hearing was initially scheduled for April.
