SPORTLIGHT

March 9

1948–NHL president Clarence Campbell expels Billy Taylor of the New York Rangers and Don Gallagher of the Boston Bruins because of gambling associations.

1958–George Yardley of the Detroit Pistons becomes the first NBA player to score 2,000 points in a season.

1977–Anthony Roberts of Oral Roberts sets an NIT record with 65 points in a 90-89 loss to Oregon in the first round.

1984–Tim Witherspoon wins the vacant WBC heavyweight title with a 12-round majority decision over Greg Page.

1986–Buffalo's Gil Perreault scores his 500th goal in a 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils.

1994–Detroit's Dino Ciccarelli scores his 1,000th career point with a goal in a 5-1 win over Calgary.

2001–Jesper Parnevik maintains the lead and young Ty Tryon stays in the spotlight. Parnevik shoots a 5-under 67 in the second round of the Honda Classic for a three-stroke lead. Tryon, a 16-year-old high school sophomore, makes the cut in his first PGA Tour event. He's 1-over, good enough to make him the second-youngest player to make the cut in a PGA Tour event.
