'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.

• Duquesne freshman Derrick Colter was named to the Atlantic 10 all-rookie team on Tuesday in voting by the league's head coaches. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound guard from Forestville, Md., was the first underclassman to lead the Dukes (8-22) in scoring (13.5 ppg) and assists (5.2 apg). He was the lone Duquesne player to start all 30 games and averaged a team-high 32.2 minutes per game. Temple's Khalif Wyatt was named A-10 Player of the Year.

• Georgetown 6-foot-8 sophomore Otto Porter Jr. was the unanimous choice as Big East Player of the Year, and the Hoyas' John Thompson III was named the Coach of the Year, more than three decades after his father won the award for the first time. JaKarr Sampson is the second straight St. John's player to be selected Rookie of the Year.

• Siena fired coach Mitch Buonaguro after three years following a 24-loss season that tied the school's record for futility. Buonaguro went 35-59 with the Saints, never finishing the season with a winning record.

• Missouri-Kansas City fired coach Matt Brown after six seasons. Brown, a former assistant coach at West Virginia under John Beilein, was 64-122 with the ‘Roos, including an 8-24 record this season.
