Eastern Illinois football player stabbed

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) -- Police are investigating a pair of stabbings that injured two Eastern Illinois University students at a party, including a football player.
 
   Charleston Police Lt. Brad Oyer says police were called to a party early Sunday near campus after a reported stabbing and a large fight. Police later discovered that a second student was stabbed and being treated at a local hospital.
 
   University athletic spokesman Rich Moser confirmed that one victim was a football player. Moser declined to identify the student. Moser says the player is recovering from his injuries.
 
   Administration spokeswoman Vicki Woodward didn't immediately release information about the second student.
 
   Oyer says both victims were released from the hospital after being treated. Oyer says police would only say they're looking for a single suspect in the stabbings.

    Kenneth Faried scored 22 points, Anthony Davis all of his 19 in the second half, and the U.S. rebounded from a rare deficit at halftime to beat Turkey 98-77 on Sunday in the Basketball World Cup.
    They figured it would be simple, that they would just beat up on Turkey like they did Finland a night earlier.
