Former Seattle-area high-school baseball stars Josh Sale and Ryan Brett were suspended 50 games for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Sale, an outfielder from Bishop Blanchet High School, and Brett, a second baseman from Highline High School, played for the Bowling Green Hot Rods, a Class A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. Both were chosen by the Rays in the 2010 draft, Sale in the first round, No. 17 overall, and Brett in the third round.

Both players tested positive for methamphetamines and an amphetamine, which are considered performance-enhancing drugs, according to The Daily News of Bowling Green, Ky.

Sale was hitting .264 with 10 home runs. Brett was hitting .285 with six home runs and 48 stolen bases. Both will miss the rest of this season and finish the suspension in 2013.

Brett's agent told The Daily News last week that Brett took what he thought was a caffeine pill and that the pill contained Adderall, a medication used to treat attention deficit disorder.

Huskies win in

OT in Spain

ZARAGOZA, Spain — Shawn Kemp hit a 6-foot jump hook as the shot clock was expiring with 20 seconds left in overtime, giving Washington a 74-73 men's basketball win over Zaragoza.

The Huskies improved to 2-0 in their 16-day foreign tour, but they needed a last-ditch basket to win. With two seconds remaining in regulation, Abdul Gaddy took an inbound pass, dribbled twice and swished a shot from 10 feet behind half-court.

Gaddy scored a team-high 17 points. Aziz N'Diaye had 12 points and 14 rebounds for Washington.
