PRICE SLAYING: A felon with ties to a street gang was charged with murdering the sister of tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams.

Aaron Michael Hammer appeared briefly in Superior Court but Judge John J. Cheroske postponed his arraignment to Tuesday at the request of the defense. He remained held without bail.

Hammer, 24, of Compton, is accused of shooting Yetunde Price, 31, as she sat in a sport utility vehicle early Sunday with a companion, Rolland Wormley, 28. An assault rifle and shell casings were found at the scene.

TEXAS: The Longhorns are sick of losing and apparently a little tired of the media as well.

Texas players decided they will not talk to reporters until after Saturday night’s game against Rice.

The No. 13 Longhorns (1-1) fell seven spots in The Associated Press poll after a 38-28 loss at home to then-unranked Arkansas. After the game, Arkansas (2-0) jumped to No. 14.

Coach Mack Brown said the players decided on the media blackout and that he and the coaching staff had nothing to do with the decision.

ALABAMA-BIRMINGHAM: Offensive coordinator Pat Sullivan, a Heisman Trophy winner at Auburn, said cancer has been diagnosed in his next after surgery.

KINGS: A federal judge in Detroit deferred for about two years the sentencing of star Chris Webber, who admitted lying to a grand jury about his dealings with a former University of Michigan basketball booster.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds instead ordered a provision to Webber’s bond that requires him to volunteer at a six-week summer literacy program at Butzel Middle School in Detroit in the summers of 2004 and 2005. Webber must work at least 150 hours each summer.
