Sports Round-Up by Paul Beitler

Purdue receiver denied 6th year
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — The NCAA has denied Purdue receiver Keith Smith a sixth year of eligibility after a knee injury prematurely ended his 2010 season.
Purdue coach Danny Hope expressed disappointment in a news release from the school on Monday.
Smith led the Big Ten with 91 catches during the 2009 season, and he caught 18 passes for 123 yards in two games last season before tearing the medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee. He was hurt on a tackle in the fourth quarter of a 31-21 win over Western Illinois and had surgery on Oct. 18.
Smith, who was recruited as a quarterback and played one season at safety, finished his career with 158 catches for 1,709 yards and eight touchdowns.

Spurs’ Parker sidelined with sore leg
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Spurs point guard Tony Parker will likely miss two to four weeks with a sore calf muscle, handing the NBA’s top team its first significant injury of the season.
Parker strained his left calf in Sunday’s win over Memphis. He had started every game during a blazing start for the NBA-best Spurs, who can already match their win total from last season Tuesday when they play the Grizzlies again.
Parker is averaging 17.1 points and 6.6 assists, piloting a refreshened offense that is quicker, higher-scoring and no longer revolving around Tim Duncan.
