LONDON -- The Russian government assured the IOC on Thursday it will not discriminate against homosexuals during the Sochi Olympics, while defending the law against gay "propaganda" that has provoked an international backlash. The IOC received a letter from Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak giving reassurances the host country will comply fully with the Olympic Charters provision against discrimination of any kind. "The Russian Federation guarantees the fulfilment of its obligations before the International Olympic Committee in its entirety," Kozak said. However, Kozak did not back down on the issue of the new law, which penalizes anyone who distributes information aimed at persuading minors that "nontraditional" relationships are normal or attractive. The law applies equally to everyone and "cannot be regarded as discrimination based on sexual orientation," Kozak said. The letter still leaves open the question of what would happen to Olympic athletes or fans if they make statements or gestures that could be considered propaganda. The law has provoked harsh international criticism ahead of the Feb. 7-23 Winter Olympics in the Russian resort of Sochi. Some activists have called for a boycott of the games, though President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have ruled that out. Kozaks letter came after IOC President Jacques Rogge asked the Russians for further clarifications on the law and how it could impact on the Sochi Games. "We have today received strong written reassurances from the Russian government that everyone will be welcome at the games in Sochi regardless of their sexual orientation," Rogge said in a statement. The letter was addressed to Jean Claude-Killy, the French IOC member who heads the co-ordination commission for the Sochi Games. Its still not clear if an athlete or spectator could be prosecuted for wearing a badge or rainbow pin or waving a small flag in solidarity with gay rights. Political gestures of any kind are also prohibited by the IOC. The issue attracted attention at the world athletics championships in Moscow last week when Swedish high jumper Emma Green Tregaro painted her fingernails in the colours of the rainbow to support gay rights. The gesture prompted Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva to complain that Green Tregaro was disrespecting Russia. In his letter, Kozak said the legislation does not impose any restrictions on sexual orientation, and stressed the Russian constitution prohibits discrimination against anyone based on sex, race or religion. The law on gay propaganda, he said, centres on the "restriction of information that promotes non-traditional sexual relationships among children." "These legislations apply equally to all persons, irrespective of their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, and cannot be regarded as discrimination based on sexual orientation," he said. The letter added: "These requirements do not attract any limitations for participants and spectators of the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on their legal right of residence in the territory of the Russian Federation or participation in any events stipulated in the Games program that are contradictory to the Olympic Charter or universally recognized standards of international law on human rights." Homosexuality was decriminalized in Russia in 1993 and Russian officials have been at pains to emphasize that the law does not penalize gay orientation or activity. However, the law reflects widespread animosity toward homosexuals in Russian society and its vagueness troubles many. It appears possible that anyone wearing a rainbow flag on the street or writing about gay relationships on Facebook, for instance, could be accused of propagandizing.

OXFORD, Miss. -- Deandre Burnett hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final two minutes and finished with 21 points and Mississippi held off Montana for an 86-81 win on Thursday night.Cullen Neal added 19 points, including five 3-pointers, Terence Davis scored 18 points, and Sebastian Saiz had 17 points and 13 rebounds.Sayeed Pridgett led Montana (1-5) with 19 points. Ahmaad Rorie added 18 points and Jack Lopez scored 17.Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was pleased with his teams offense, but the Rebels struggles on the defensive end were clearly at the forefront of his mind Thursday.Defensively, theres a recurring theme, Kennedy said. Were giving up 12 made 3-pointers a game at 45 percent. It went down a little bit tonight (Montana was 12-for-33 from the 3-point line, good for 36.4 percent). Were making a lot of mistakes as it relates to guarding the ball, which creates unnecessary rotations and then the thing that infuriates me -- and Im not supposed to be mad on Thanksgiving -- is the scouting report errors. In the gym tonight, you could hear us yelling, `Dont leave. Hes a shooter, and we leave. We have to have a little more personal accountability as it pertains to preparing for the game.Ole Miss led by as many as 18 points midway through the second half, taking a 62-44 lead on Saizs traditional 3-point play. Montana got as close as 81-76 in the final minute. However, Lopez missed a 3-pointer that would have pulled the Grizzlies within one possession, and the Rebels converted at the free throw line over the final 30 seconds to seal it.Im happy we competed and Im happy we found some grit and didnt give up, Montana coach Travis DeCuire said. We could have easily laid down and lost by 25 or 30. We made some mental errors in the first half and the beginning of the second half that put us in that situation. Once we stopped making mistakes and started competing and crashing the glass, we out-played them in the last 10 minutes. But sometimes teams get a lead and they dont do what theyre supposed to do either, but I did think we grew up a little bit todday.ddddddddddddOle Miss led by 12 at halftime after building a 14-point lead in the first half, thanks primarily to the 3-point shooting of Neal and Davis, each of whom hit three treys in the opening 20 minutes.The Rebels shot 45.2 percent overall and made 11 of 26 from 3-point range.Im pleased with us offensively, Kennedy said. Were scoring in the high 80s consistently and were doing it in an efficient manner. Turnovers continue to come down. If we eliminate some of the foolish ones, were decent in that area. We just have to continue to work.BIG PICTUREMontana: The Grizzlies have been on the road since Nov. 14, and they showed some signs of fatigue at times Thursday, committing 19 turnovers and shooting just 38.4 percent from the field.Ole Miss: Admission was free on Thursday in Oxford, and the Rebels drew a surprisingly large holiday crowd of 7,358 fans. At 5-1 with games against Middle Tennessee and Memphis coming up in the next eight days, the Rebels, who gave No. 11 Creighton a scare on Monday night in the Virgin Islands, have a chance to make some national noise with wins.ROLE PLAYER: Davis role increased on Thursday with Ole Miss guard Rasheed Brooks struggling. Brooks did not score in 19 minutes, going 0 for 6 from the field. Kennedy said Brooks has been distracted the past couple of days due to personal reasons. Davis played 24 minutes, many coming as a result of Brooks struggles, and made 6 of 9 shots. Davis added five rebounds and an assist.HE SAID IT: Theyre a phenomenal team. Theyre playing at a high level right now. They have a lot of guys who do a lot of things. They have athleticism. They can shoot. They have one of the better point guards in the country (Neal). Theyre going to win a lot of games. I think thats a team that can contend in the SEC. -- DeCuire on Ole Miss.UP NEXTMontanas road trip concludes Sunday afternoon at South Dakota.Ole Miss plays host to Middle Tennessee Wednesday night.
