Sacramento Kings: Notes and statements made by Michigan booster Ed Martin have been ruled inadmissable by a federal judge in the perjury case against Chris Webber. "We are always happy to win any motion that we file," Webber's lawyer, Steve Fishman, said in the N.Y. Times. But Webber's side remained cautious. "The case remains largely a mystery," Mayce Webber's lawyer, Robert Morgan, also told the N.Y. Times. The barred evidence is said to include a record of loans given to other Michigan players and a conversation between Martin and a friend stating the Webber was one of those players who owed him money. "Nothing unexpected happened today," U.S. assistant attorney Keith Corbett said. "I don't think we're any worse off than I anticipated being."
