Rion Brown scored 22 points, hitting 5-of-7 3-pointers, as eighth-ranked Miami rolled to a 72-50 victory over Boston College on Tuesday night in Coral Gables, Fla.
Kenny Kadji added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hurricanes (18-3, 9-0 ACC), who never trailed. After BC cut a 10-point halftime deficit to six early in the second half, Kadji sparked a 17-4 run by scoring 10 points (including a four-point play) over his team’s next four possessions.

On the cusp of spring training, the Red Sox completed their coaching staff by announcing that longtime scout and staff member Dana Levangie will take over as the team’s bullpen coach and catching instructor, replacing Gary Tuck, who informed the team last week that he was retiring.
Levangie had spent the last seven years as a major league advance scout for the Red Sox. The familiarity with big league hitters that he’s gained in that job represented a considerable attribute for a man who will be charged with overseeing the preparation of relievers as they get ready to enter contests. Indeed, in the press release announcing the hiring of the 43-year-old Levangie, the Sox noted that he will continue to assist in the team’s advance scouting.
“We are extremely pleased to add Dana to the major league staff,” manager John Farrell said in the press release. “He has been a...
WALTHAM — The always media savvy Doc Rivers knows as well as anyone that trade rumors are going to happen in this day and age in the NBA.
But what really gets his goat is when those rumors spring out of nowhere and he's not even remotely familiar with them. With reports swirling that the Clippers may be interested in Kevin Garnett and with Garnett reportedly saying he'd only waive his "no-trade" clause if Paul Pierce were also dealt out of town, Rivers said Tuesday he'd finally heard and seen enough.
"Really, really I would like to say that sometimes, I like you guys [local media], sometimes some of the stuff that happens is just silly. It really is. When I wake up in the morning and I hear a trade rumor I haven't heard in my office that's silly. And that's what happens."
Does he address it with the team?
WALTHAM — Celtics superstar Kevin Garnett has heard all about the trade rumor that has the Los Angeles Clippers interested in offering Celtics GM Danny Ainge a package that includes Caron Butler if Garnett would only waive his "no-trade" clause.
Garnett has been a Celtics icon since coming to Boston in the summer of 2007, along with Ray Allen, and joining Paul Pierce to form the "Big 3." Last summer, Garnett signed a three-year, $36 million deal that includes a very rare full no-trade clause, meaning he can veto a deal anywhere.
Before Tuesday's practice, Garnett was asked if he would be interested in waiving his no-trade if Ainge came to him with a deal...
