Sports briefs: Stanford golf takes third

Freshman Sihwan Kim took third in his first collegiate tournament to spark the top-ranked Stanford men’s golf team to a third-place finish in the Topy Cup. Kim fired rounds of 67-70-67 to finish with a 9-under 207 total. The defending NCAA champion Cardinal posted its worst round in the three-day tournament at 289 to finish at 17-under 847.

Davis chimes in on quarterback situation

While Raiders coach Lane Kiffin remains mum on who the starting quarterback will be on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, owner Al Davis has put in his 2 cents on who the starter should be. “Should be? He may be in Mobile,” Davis said, referring to the Alabama hometown of No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell. Meanwhile, Russell’s uncle has been quoted in USA Today saying that a contract was “almost done,” but the Raiders say nothing is close at this point. “I wouldn’t really pay attention to what someone’s uncle said about the negotiation process,” Kiffin said.
