OT win gives Northeastern outright CAA title

Joel Smith scored seven of his game-high 29 points in overtime to lead Northeastern to a 90-84 victory over Georgia State on Wednesday night in Atlanta, clinching the outright Colonial Athletic Association championship for the Huskies.

With NU leading 83-82 inside the final minute, Smith scored his team’s final seven points — on a 3-pointer and four free throws — as the Huskies held off a stubborn Georgia State squad. Northeastern scored 18 points in OT, with 12 of them coming from the free throw line.

Devonta White (24 points) hit a layup with 1:15 left in regulation that tied the score at 72. NU then missed three 3-pointers in the final minute, while GSU missed two shots and a free throw that could have broken the tie.

David Walker scored 16 points for NU (19-10, 14-3 CAA), which already clinched the No. 1 seed for the CAA tournament. Zach Stahl...

Middlebrooks suffers wrist injury vs. Orioles

SARASOTA, Fla. — Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks left in the first inning of Wednesday’s Grapefruit League game against the Orioles after suffering an injury while facing Baltimore right-hander Chris Tillman.

Middlebrooks tried to check his swing on an inside fastball from Tillman. His hand flew off the bat as he attempted to do so, and after he unsuccessfully held up his swing, Middlebrooks immediately walked towards the Red Sox dugout, where he was greeted by a team trainer and manager John Farrell. The decision to remove him from the game was immediate. As Middlebrooks walked off the field, he was holding his right hand against his side — a particularly troubling sign for...

Doubront starts Monday, Ortiz personal leave

SARASOTA, Fla. — Felix Doubront completed his simulated game Wednesday successfully in Fort Myers and has passed the final hurdle for starting a spring game, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. That start will come Monday afternoon at JetBlue Park against Tampa Bay.

The lefty was slowed at the start of camp due to fatigue in his left [throwing] shoulder and was held back. He began throwing a week later than the other four projected starters in the rotation. He threw live batting practice earlier this week before throwing his simulated game on Wednesday.

“He was very good. Two sim innings and he’s on tap for Monday,” Farrell said before Wednesday’s game against the Orioles.

After some confusion, another pitcher, Alfredo Aceves, will indeed pitch for Mexico...

Suggs: Every team in NFL hates Patriots
By: DJ Bean

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs joined The Big Show Wednesday, discussing his frustration with the Patriots and explaining why he called them “the most arrogant pricks in the world” after defeating New England in the AFC Championship.

“Do I apologize for what I said? No. Do I mean what I said? Yeah,” Suggs said. “Could I have worded it a little better? Probably, but the fact of the matter is you can’t really consider it a rivalry because you have a few more championships than we do, but this has been steaming for a while.”

Suggs pointed to the way Patriots players behaved when the teams met in the 2007 season as why he doesn’t like them, adding that the league bent over backwards to accommodate Tom Brady after his season-ending injury in 2008.

“There was the whole invention of the Brady rule,” he said. “Years before, I hit...

Napoli 'good to go' for games starting Friday

FORT MYERS, Fla. — First baseman Mike Napoli cleared his final hurdle en route to starting to play in exhibition games on Friday. Under the watch of Red Sox trainers, Napoli engaged in a number of baserunning drills, simulating a run from home to first on a grounder, from home to first with a turn around the bag on a single, home to second, first to third, second to home and, in a simulation of a sacrifice fly, from third to home.

Napoli’s hips have remained pain-free all offseason and spring, and so he had few concerns that he would feel any discomfort running due to the avascular necrosis with which he was diagnosed. His lone concern in these baserunning drills was related to his legs, but that proved no real concern at all.
