Binghamton University is giving a raise to interim men's basketball coach Mark Macon, who took over in mid-November after coach Kevin Broadus was placed on paid leave.

Macon, a former Temple star, was making $57,651 as an assistant coach; Broadus is making $230,000.

Binghamton's acting athletic director, James Norris, declined to reveal Macon's new salary. The Bearcats are 3-6.

Broadus was placed on leave after starting point guard Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben was arrested on drug charges and five teammates were dismissed for unspecified violations.

TRACK AND FIELD: The International Olympic Committee reallocated two individual medals stripped from Marion Jones for doping, but in an unprecedented move, withheld her 100-meter prize from Greek sprinter Katerina Thanou because of her "disgraceful" behavior in evading drug tests at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

The decision means the first two runners across the line in Sydney in 2000 have both been denied the winner's medal for doping violations, and the gold in sprinting's marquee event will remain without an owner - believed to be a first in the 113-year history of the modern Olympics.

Tanya Lawrence of Jamaica, who finished third in the 100 in Sydney, moved up to second.
