Starbucks said Evolution Fresh drinks, already available in grocery stores, will make their way into Starbucks' company-owned stores later this year.

Federer tops Isner for 4th Indian Wells title

Indian Wells, CA (Sports Network) - Roger Federer beat John Isner in straight sets Sunday to win the BNP Paribas Masters for a fourth time.

Federer needed 81 minutes to beat Isner 7-6 (9-7), 6-3 one day after knocking off rival Rafael Nadal in two sets to reach the final of the $4.695 million event.

It was Federer's first win at the tournament since he captured three in a row from 2004-06. He took home $1 million for the victory, his third of the season and 73rd of his career.

Isner, the 26-year-old American, was chasing his fourth career title and first of the season after beating defending champion and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Saturday.

Federer fired seven aces and saved three break points, winning 33-of-35 points on his first serve to improve to 3-1 against the 6-foot-9 American.

The Swiss star's only loss to Isner came in a Davis Cup shocker last month and he has rattled off 15 straight wins since then.

Lady Bulldogs Fall to Red Foxes

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The No. 21 Georgia Lady Bulldogs (22-9) fell to the Marist Red Foxes (26-7), 76-70, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Sunday afternoon.

"Obviously we're disappointed with the outcome of the ballgame, but we want to congratulate Marist for doing such a good job with what they do," said head coach Andy Landers. "They're very good with their motion offense. They can hurt you in a number of different ways. Today, they hurt us with the drive. Our defense wasn't very good and they were very good with executing their drive options which led to layups and fouls. At the end of the day, that's the way the game was decided."

Tennessee Takes Down Dawgs

ATHENS, Ga. -- The 18th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs missed out on an SEC sweep as Tennessee posted a 3-0 win Sunday at Foley Field.

It was the second time this season that the Bulldogs have been shut out, the first being last weekend against then No. 16 UCLA. After racking up 14 runs on 24 in the first two games of the series, the Bulldogs (15-6, 2-1 SEC) struggled to get anything going on offense. Tennessee right-hander Nick Williams (2-2), normally the Volunteer closer, made his first career start, and gave up just two hits in six innings pitched.
