SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Meryl Davis and Charlie White are poised for an upset, winning the original dance and extending their lead over Olympic silver medalists Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Davis and White's overall score of 113.53 puts them about 1½ points ahead of Belbin and Agosto going into Saturday's free dance, a margin that's difficult to make up in ice dance. Although it might seem odd to consider a second straight title an upset, Davis and White won last year when Belbin and Agosto, the five-time winners and best ice dance team the United States has ever produced, were out with his back injury.
Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates, last year's silver medalists, moved into third with a rousing Dixie Chicks medley.
