'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Duquesne women's basketball was picked to finish fourth in the 16-team Atlantic 10 this season, according to a vote of the league's head coaches Wednesday.

The Dukes, who made a WNIT appearance last season, received three first-place votes and 204 points in the preseason poll.

Defending A-10 champion Dayton (seven first-place votes, 239 points) was selected first, following by Richmond (1, 207) and Charlotte (1, 206).

Duquesne juniors Wumi Agunbiade and Orsi Szecsi were chosen for the preseason Atlantic 10 first team and second team, respectively. Senior Jocelyn Floyd was named to the All-Defensive team.

Dayton center suspended

Dayton center Matt Kavanaugh was suspended for the academic year because he violated the school's code of conduct, making him ineligible to play for the Flyers.

The 6-foot-9 senior started 33 games last season and finished fifth in the Atlantic 10 with 97 offensive rebounds. He averaged 9 points and 5.9 rebounds.

The school declined to give details of his misconduct because of privacy laws.

BYU forward's career over

Recurring knee problems ended the playing career of BYU senior forward Stephen Rogers.

The 6-foot-8 Rogers was part of a BYU team that won a school-record 32 games in 2010-11 and reached the Sweet 16.

He got off to a strong start last season, averaging 9.9 points and hitting 15 3s in the first 10 games before tearing the meniscus in his right knee.
