Cunningham in hall of fame

Minnesota men’s basketball assistant Charles Cunningham was inducted into the North Alabama Athletic Hall of Fame last weekend. Cunningham was a two-year letterwinner in basketball at North Alabama in 1972-73, where he led the team in rebounding both seasons.
Cunningham posted career averages of 12.7 rebounds and 15.1 points per game. He earned a B.S. degree in physical education from North Alabama and served as a graduate assistant coach at UNA for two seasons. He completed his Masters of Education degree in 1981 before joining the Gophers basketball staff in 1996.

Little involved in accident
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rams rookie linebacker Leonard Little was driving a sport utility vehicle that crashed into another car, killing a 47-year-old woman.
Susan Gutweiler died Tuesday about 12 hours after her car was broadsided by Little’s vehicle at a downtown St. Louis intersection that has stop lights. Authorities said it was too early to determine who was at fault.
Little declined medical attention at the scene. Police said he submitted to blood and alcohol tests and was not arrested or ticketed.
Little, a third-round draft pick out of Tennessee, has been used as a reserve linebacker and has played in all of the Rams’ games this season. He has eight special teams tackles.
Mariner owner dies
SEATTLE (AP) — Stanley Golub, a jewelry wholesaler who became one of the original owners of the Seattle Mariners, has died at 85.
He died Oct. 14 of pneumonia.
In 1976, when an American League franchise became available, Golub teamed with other investors, including entertainer Danny Kaye, to buy it. The team began play in 1977.
“He got into it because my mom was a baseball nut,” said Golub’s son, Stanley Golub Jr. “Owning the Mariners was a blast for the family … even though it only lasted four or five years” before the investors sold the team.
Golub is survived by his wife, Adele, his son, two daughters, his brother and four grandchildren.
