Tyson wants taxes
CLEVELAND -- Boxer Mike Tyson has filed a claim to get $5.8 million in state income taxes returned to him.
He paid the taxes in 1995 and 1996 when he owned a 62-acre estate in Southington Township. He claims the money should be returned because his primary residence was in Nevada during those years.
Tyson sold the property in 1999.
Thomas Zaino, tax commissioner of Ohio, denied Tyson's request. A hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 25 in Columbus.
OSU's Sylvestershot outside party
COLUMBUS -- Ohio State forward Matt Sylvester was shot outside a party Sept. 1 but will recover in time to play this basketball season, coach Jim O'Brien said Tuesday.
O'Brien called Sylvester's injury a "minor flesh wound" and said he would not discipline the 6-foot-7, 190-pound swingman.
"He is only guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and using poor judgment about where he was at the time," O'Brien said in a statement.
Sylvester was with a group of high school friends when he was shot during an argument outside a party near his home in Loveland, a Cincinnati suburb.
As he tried to drive away in his car, a pellet went through a door and hit him in the buttocks, O'Brien said.
Sylvester received a medical redshirt after playing in only three games as a freshman last season because of lower back pain and a calf injury. He had back surgery in August.
As a senior at Cincinnati Moeller, Sylvester averaged 21.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and was named the Division I co-player of year for the 2000-2001 sea
