Pitino, Louisville beat Michigan for title

The Louisville men’s basketball team claimed its third national championship, beating Michigan, 82-76, Monday night in the NCAA title game in Atlanta.

Rick Pitino’s team came back from a one-point deficit at the half to out-score the Wolverines, 45-38, in the final 20 minutes. It was the second national title for Pitino, who was inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame earlier in the day, and the first championship for Louisville since 1986.

Luke Hancock led the way for the Cardinals, netting 22 points, going 5-for-5 on three-pointers. Louisville guard Peyton Siva (18 points) and Chane Behanan (15) also contributed for the tournament’s No. 1 seed. The performances helped Pitino’s club overcome a poor outing from guard Russ Smith, who made just three of his 16 shots from the floor.

Michigan got an outstanding performance...

Barnes lasts one inning in Double-A debut

Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew went 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk. He also had a pop-up and a groundout while playing eight innings at shortstop. He concludes his four-game rehab assignment having gone 2-for-13 with a double, homer and two walks.

Also notable from the game: starter Matt Barnes logged just one inning in his Double-A debut, recording all three outs via strikeout but permitting two runs on two hits (a single and triple) and a walk. His removal from the game, according to a team source, was purely due to the fact that he required 33 pitches (21 strikes) to labor through his one inning of work.

Bruins score six, beat Hurricanes
By: DJ Bean

Claude Julien’s revamped lines worked against the struggling Hurricanes, as the B’s got their best best offensive performance of the season and beat Carolina, 6-2, at TD Garden.

Brad Marchand scored a pair of goals from the B’s, who jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period thanks to his goals and a goal from Rich Peverley, who got the B’s on the board. Boston added second-period goals from Andrew Ference and Jordan Caron before the Hurricanes got on the board in the third period on tallies from Patrick Dwyer and Drayson Bowman. Nathan Horton made it 6-2 with just over three minutes to play.

Dwyer’s goal broke up Tuukka Rask’s shutout bid with 9:57 left to play. Rask still made 40 saves in the win. The B’s chased Carolina starter Justin Peters after the first of Marchand’s two goals to make it 2-0, with Dan Ellis replacing him and allowing four goals in relief.
