National all-around champion Shannon Miller added titles in the uneven bars and floor exercise Saturday night in the final session of the National Gymnastics Championships at Salt Lake City.

Earlier, John Roethlisberger added a still-rings championship to his third all-around gold. Steve McCain was an upset winner on the horizontal bar, Chris Waller won his third consecutive national pommel horse championship and Chainey Umphrey won the parallel bars. McCain, Waller and Umphrey competed for UCLA.
Former Miami safety Bennie Blades told the Sun-Sentinel of Ft. Lauderdale that an agent, Mel Levine of Ft. Lauderdale, arranged for him and five other Hurricane players to receive thousands of dollars in cash payments in apparent violation of NCAA rules during the team's 1987 national championship season.
Blades told the newspaper that the players received the money with the understanding they would sign contracts with Levine after their eligibility expired.
All did sign with Levine, and four are now in the NFL. Blades and receiver Brett Perriman are with the Detroit Lions, receiver Michael Irvin is with the Dallas Cowboys and Brian Blades, Bennie's brother, is a receiver with the Seattle Seahawks.
The other players involved were safeties Darrell Fullington and Selwyn Brown, Blades told the Sun-Sentinel.
Levine, who is no longer an agent, denied breaking any rules in dealing with the players.
The alleged payments do not fall within the NCAA's four-year statute of limitations for rules violations.
