AROUND THE WEB:
— UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma found himself defending his team’s success Sunday as the Huskies close in on a fourth straight NCAA championship while riding a 72-game winning streak.
As UConn prepares for Monday’s Elite Eight game against Texas, Auriemma commented on Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy’s assertion that the Huskies “are killing [the] women’s game” due to their dominance, and that he would not watch because of it.
“Don’t watch,” Auriemma responded. “Don’t watch. Nobody’s putting a gun to your head to watch. So don’t watch, and don’t write about it. Spend your time on things that you think are important. If you don’t think this is important, don’t pay any attention to it. The fact that you have to comment on it? Says something about you, doesn’t it?
“We are what we are. We are what we are. You know? We do what we do. We do what we do. When Tiger [Woods] was winning every major, nobody said he was bad for golf. Actually, he did a lot for golf. He made everybody have to be a better golfer. And they did. And now there’s a lot more great golfers because of Tiger.
“There’s a lot better writers than Dan Shaughnessy. But that doesn’t mean he’s bad for the game.”
Auriemma said he’s become used to such criticism.
“We don’t appreciate people for how good they are and what a good job they do — we always have to compare it to something,” he said. “It’s only in women’s basketball. It’s the only sport where that happens. The only sport. Day in, day out, year in, year out, we’re faced with those questions and those comparisons.”
— Rajon Rondo has fond memories of his time in Boston. His stint in Dallas, however, did not go so well. And he hasn’t forgotten it.
After the Kings cruised to a 133-111 victory over the fading Mavericks on Sunday, Rondo said he wouldn’t mind if Dallas joined Sacramento in missing out on a playoff berth.
“Yeah, I want them to get their plane ticket as soon as we get ours,” said Rondo, who had 11 points and 11 assists Sunday. “So any time we can help, that’s what I try to get these guys [on the Kings] to focus on.”
The injury-plagued Mavericks have lost 10 of their last 12 games and now trail Houston by a half-game for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
The Kings are 29-44, although they’ve beaten Dallas three times in four meetings.
“If we’re not going to make the playoffs then let’s help some of these guys go home with us,” Rondo said.
Celtics fans are taking note, as the C’s own Dallas’ first-round draft pick (top-seven protected) this year thanks to the Rondo trade in 2014.
— Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward did his best to hold his position in center field during Sunday’s Cactus League game against the Mariners in Mesa, Arizona, but a swarm of bees eventually sent him climbing up the fence.
“They came over from right field so I tried to get out of the way,” he said. “I should have gone over the fence.”
“It started on my face then the back of my head over here,” he said. “It’s OK. I’m not allergic.”
After a brief delay, the game continued. Heyward stayed in and hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the inning.
ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On March 28, 1986, the Red Sox made a trade with the Yankees to acquire designated hitter Don Baylor, who helped the Red Sox win the 1986 American League pennant. Which player did the Sox trade to New York?
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Let’s be realistic: Whoever gets that job, it’s just a temporary thing. It’s [Eduardo Rodriguez’s] job. We need Eddie. If we’re going to go deep in the season and into the playoffs, we’re going to need Eddie in there. I don’t think they can go wrong with whoever they do decide to go in the fifth spot. If it is my spot for the time being, I’m going to try to go out there and go as deep as I can.” — Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright, after a solid performance in Sunday’s spring training game made him the favorite for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation
STAT OF THE DAY: 16 — Points by which Syracuse trailed Virginia in the second half of Sunday’s Elite Eight game before the Orange rallied for a 68-62 victory to become the first 10 seed ever to reach the Final Four
