Georgetown men's basketball coach John Thompson will withdraw his application for a NV gaming license and will pull out of a deal to make him a 10% owner of slot machines at Las Vegas' McCarran Airport. Thompson said he did so on the request of Georgetown President Rev. Leo O'Donovan. Thompson: "It was never my intention in any way to create any grief for him" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 3/20).
