TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State quarterback Jameis (JAY'-mihs) Winston has been cleared of the accusations he faced at a student code of conduct hearing involving an alleged sexual assault two years ago, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. Former Florida Supreme Court judge Major Harding wrote in a letter to Winston that the evidence was "insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof." A prosecutor made a similar decision a year ago when he decided not to criminally charge Winston, citing a lack of evidence.

Marc Gasol (gah-SAHL') scored 23 and added 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who played without forward Zach Randolph and fell to 21-6.

The Red Wings have scored just six times while going 0-2-4, with four of the six losses coming in shootouts. Edmonton's slump is even worse as the Oilers fell to 1-12-6 with a 6-5 shootout loss to Dallas.
