Rhode Island outlasts BC in double OT

Billy Baron scored seven of his 25 points in the second overtime as Rhode Island escaped Boston College with a 78-72 double-overtime victory Monday afternoon.

Ryan Anderson had 18 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks for BC (5-8). Dennis Clifford and Lonnie Jackson each scored 12 points. Patrick Heckmann added 11 points, including a buzzer-beater at the end of the first overtime to force another five minutes.

Mike Powell added 21 points for URI, and Jonathan Holton had 11 points and nine rebounds. In addition to his 24 points, Baron had eight rebounds. He hit all 11 of his free throws.

URI (3-12) is 2-0 since leading scorer Jamal Wilson was kicked off the team for a violation of team rules Dec. 27.

Report: O'Brien not headed to Penn State

According to Charlie Casserly of CBS Sports, Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien will not be the next Penn State football coach.

Multiple reports -- including those emanating from ESPN and USA Today -- suggested O'Brien was the favorite to land the Nittany Lions' job. Cassery, on the other hand, said that the coordinator's name has been taken out of consideration, with San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and Boise State head coach Chris Peterson remaining possibilities to take the job.

After the Patriots' 49-21 win over Buffalo Sunday, both Pats quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick declined to talk about the rumors circulating regarding O'Brien. 

"I don't know what's going to happen," Brady said. "I hope he...

Caron was on the ice for the start of the Bruins' practice Monday at Ristuccia Arena, skating as an extra forward on the Merlot Line of Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille.

Mashup: Jets yank Holmes after altercation

Not only did the Jets lose the Dolphins on Sunday to surrender any hope of making the playoffs, there was some internal trouble as receiver Santonio Holmes was benched for the final drive after being held without a catch all game and getting into a dispute with his teammates.

Holmes could be seen screaming in the huddle before leaving the field.

"There were guys in the huddle not happy with Santonio's demeanor throughout the game and in the two-minute drill," Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. "And they said something to him about it."

Explained left guard Matt Slauson: “It started off between Holmes and another guy. Then everybody came at each other. It was bad. It was breaking down. That’s how it goes when you’re not doing well and you’re in a must-win. Tempers get flared.”

Coach Rex Ryan said he didn't know why Holmes was not on the field, as it was offensive coordinator...
