Terrell Vinson tipped in a rebound at the buzzer to lift UMass past Providence, 77-75, in an opening-round game at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off in Bayamon on Thursday night.

Cabrera trounces Trout in MVP voting

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera claimed the American League MVP, easily out-distancing second-place finisher, Angels rookie Mike Trout.

Cabrera, who became the first Triple Crown winner in 45 years, received 22 of 28 first-place votes, with Trout receiving the other six. The Tigers' third baseman finished with 362 points, while the Angels' outfielder totaled 281 points. One voter, Sheldon Ocker from the Akron Beacon Journal, was the only voter to not put Cabrera and Trout in second spot, giving Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre a second-place vote.

Cabrera finished with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs and 139 RBI, becoming the first Triple Crown winner since the Red Sox Carl Yastrzemski won the award 1967. The last four Triple Crown winners have won the MVP.

San Francisco catcher Buster Posey took home the National League MVP.

Ainge on Big Show: 'We're not even close'

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Thursday and was asked about the status of Rajon Rondo for Thursday's game against the Nets in Brooklyn. Rondo injured his right ankle in the third quarter of Wednesday's win over the Jazz and did not return to the game.

"Not sure yet, we'll wait until he gets here and get some treatment and we'll see," Ainge said. "There hasn't been any decision made yet. ... He just tweaked his ankle last night and we don't know the severity of it yet. We'll see when he gets over here tonight."

Ainge told The Big Show last week that the Celtics "hadn't really figured out" Jeff Green and characterized his play as "inconsistent." Green had a strong performance in the win over Jazz, highlighted by a spectacular fourth-quarter dunk over Al Jefferson. Ainge was asked if he expects the effort on Wednesday to lead to better production...

Talib on Patriots: 'I love the team already'

FOXBORO -- New Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib met with reporters on Thursday for the first time since being acquired in a deadline day trade with the Buccaneers and said he's already been embraced by his new teammates. 

"The guys have been great, man," Talib said of his teammates. "They've embraced me and I love the team already."

Talib, who finished his four-game suspension on Sunday for taking Adderall in violation of the NFL performance enchancing policy, sits in a locker between Ras-I Dowling and Devin McCourty. 

"I did my best to stay in pretty good shape," Talib said. "Coming in early, leaving late, just trying to learn the system. It's been all right."

Talib said he's not worried about the perceptions of his past problems, including being indicted for firing a gun at his sister's boyfiend in Texas. He also said he's not worried about perceptions and pressure of being someone the...
