A former Xavier University basketball player who was expelled over what he says was a false rape allegation has settled his lawsuit against the Cincinnati school over its handling of the case. Federal Judge John Arthur dismissed Dez Wells' lawsuit, which had claimed that Xavier and its president used him as a scapegoat to demonstrate an aggressive response to sexual assault allegations in the wake of two unrelated federal investigations. Terms of the settlement were not released in court records. University spokeswoman Kelly Leon declined to discuss the case except to say that ''the lawsuit has been resolved in a manner satisfactory to the parties.'' Leon had said in March that the university would be vindicated once all the facts became known.

Tyndall's task at Tennessee already tougher (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this Nov. 13, 2013 file photo, Southern Mississippi head coach Donnie Tyndall, center, talks to guards Neil Watson, left, and Jerrold Brooks during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against DePaul, in Rosemont, Ill. Tennessee is counting on Tyndall to make the same successful transition from the mid-major ranks as the Volunteers' last two men's basketball coaches. Tennessee announced Tuesday morning, April 22, 2014, that Tyndall would be introduced as its new coach at a 2 p.m. news conference. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)

Donnie Tyndall just took over Tennessee's program on Tuesday, yet his job already has gotten tougher. Tyndall knew when he was hired that he'd have to replace four of the top five scorers from a team that went 23-14 and reached an NCAA regional semifinal this season. Now the former Southern Mississippi coach must rebuild a recruiting class that has been decimated since his arrival. Tennessee granted releases Wednesday to guards Larry Austin Jr. and Jordan Cornish, who signed letters of intent before former Volunteers coach Cuonzo Martin left for California.
