Some Ohio State football players reportedly are being investigated for allegedly trading signed memorabilia for tattoos from a parlor near the campus in Columbus. The players' eligibility for the Jan. 4 Sugar Bowl against Arkansas could be in jeopardy, although the investigation might not be completed by then. Quarterback Terrell Pryor denied being involved, writing on his Twitter page: I paid for my tattoos. GoBucks.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said on Wednesday that the team will not relieve coach Claude Julien of his duties this season. The slumping B's have averaged just 1.8 goals over their last five games, a span in which they've won just one game, and some fans have called for a coaching change. Despite the team's struggles, Chiarelli said "yes" when asked on CBS Radio Boston if he would say "unequivocally that Claude Julien's job is not in danger."
Chiarelli said such a decision ultimately would have to be made by a group of front-office members, but that he feels the team is better off with Julien than without him.
"That's my preference and that's my recommendation," Chiarelli said. "This is a collective thing that we do on these matters. But I have full confidence in Claude and the staff to figure it out."
The Bruins are in eighth place in the...
Paul Pierce started off the night by missing his first seven shots from the field, including a pair of 3-point attempts. But that's not what caused him to admittedly lose his cool in the third quarter, when he was hit with a technical foul by referee Tony Brothers. Pierce was called for his fourth personal foul, causing him to wave his hand in disgust at Brothers.
"We got frustrated," Pierce admitted. "I got a technical. I know I was frustrated tonight. Just in a game where you're trying to get rhythm and the game is off-balance and calls are being called each and every way. It's hard to get into a rhythm, so I was definitely frustrated."
Just 90 seconds earlier, Kevin Garnett was hit with a technical after he picked up his third foul. Two minutes later, Garnett was whistled for his fourth. Nate Robinson also had four fouls heading into the fourth. All three players managed to avoid fouling out...
Ray Allen had 22 points and Shaquille O'Neal added 13 to lift the Celtics to their 14th straight win, an 84-80 victory over the 76ers Wednesday night at TD Garden. The 14-game winning streak is the fifth best in Celtics history, trailing only the 19-game record streak of two seasons ago, an 18-game streak in 1982, a 17-gamer in 1959-60 season and a 16-game run in the 1964-65 season.
The Celtics battled foul trouble all night. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Nate Robinson all had four personal fouls midway through the third quarter. Entering the fourth quarter, the Celtics had 20 fouls while the Sixers had just eight. Ironically, no foul was called on Andre Iguodala as he drove to the basket and was blocked by Garnett on a potential game-tying lay-up with 14 seconds left. Allen hit two free throws to ice the game.
The frustration was apparent on the court as Garnett and Pierce were both whistled in the third...

Joe Trapani and Josh Southern each scored 16 points while Biko Paris had 14 points and seven assists for the Eagles (10-2). Bryson Johnson scored 25 points to lead Bucknell (6-7).
BC continued to launch long-range shots at a record clip, hitting 12-of-30 from 3-point range. Jackson was 3-for-4. The Eagles are on pace to break records for 3-pointers attempted and made in a season. Bucknell hit an impressive 15-of-29 treys.
BC fell behind by 16 points midway through the first half before going on a 14-0 run that was fueled by eight points by Trapani. The Eagles trailed by three at the break, 42-39. BC went down by seven in the second half before Jackson sparked a 10-2 run with a three-point...
