Rahon lifts BC over Wake; NU falls in OT

A young Boston College team that has struggled to finish games all season finally found a way to win Wednesday night at Conte Forum. Freshman guard Joe Rahon hit two free throws with 7.6 seconds left to give the Eagles the tying and winning points in a 66-63 victory over Wake Forest.

Following Rahon’s free throws, Wake got the ball to a driving C.J. Harris (game-high 23 points), but he lost his footing while trying to make a pass near the BC basket and was called for traveling. Lonnie Jackson hit two free throws with 2.5 seconds left for a three-point cushion, and Wake was unable to get off a final shot.

Rahon finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and four assists for the...

Sullinger: 'I think I'll come back better'

Most of Jared Sullinger's days since undergoing season-ending back surgery on Feb. 1 have been spent sitting at an angle that resembles a reclining chair, so the 20-year-old Celtics rookie has plenty of time on his hands.

"I haven't been doing anything but Twitter, playing video games and catching up on movies," Sullinger said during a press conference prior to the C's hosting the Bulls before their NBA All-Star break begins. "That's about it."

The back problems that have plagued Sullinger since Nov. 29, 2011, when the Ohio State product scored 21 points in a blowout win over Duke, flared up for the first time this season four minutes into a game against the Kings exactly two weeks ago. The next day, he couldn't walk. And the next, he underwent surgery to repair a disc that was bulging into his central nervous system.

"I didn't think it was going to come...

Farrell: 'Encouraging day' for Buchholz

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox manager John Farrell reported some encouraging news on pitcher Clay Buchholz Wednesday, one day after suffering a “mild” hamstring strain in his right leg.

“A good day for Clay Buchholz. He’s responded favorably to treatment. His range of motion is good, his strength is good. He still has some sensation in a smaller spot [of leg], more localized than yesterday. He actually threw after the workout, not off a mound, but [we were] able to put a ball back in his hand and an encouraging day for him.”

On Jon Lester: “He’s a vital member of our team and certainly our rotation. Just having Jon pitch to his capabilities and talent, there’s a number of years that speak to that. He’s going through a number of adjustments and today was a good day with that. He had a very strong bullpen and is doing some...

Lester to Red Sox doubters: 'Bring it on'

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jon Lester is out to prove he’s a better pitcher than the one that finished 2012. He’s also embracing the challenge of leading a starting rotation that has its doubters heading into 2013.

Lester knows how 2012 ended. He knows he went 9-14 with a 4.82 ERA in 33 starts. He knows he was 4-9 with a 4-plus ERA in 17 starts over the final three months of the season. He knows that people are going to be expecting him to turn it around big time if the 2013 Red Sox are going to come anywhere close to competing.

“I love it. It’s great. Bring it on because of what you guys expect of me is nothing what of I expect of myself,” Lester said when asked Wednesday about being called upon to lead the staff. “I expect a lot. That’s why as far as me being serious, that’s why I am the way I am. I try to live up to my own expectations before everybody else...

Napoli on M&M: MRI on hip scheduled Thursday

New Red Sox first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli joined Mut & Merloni on Wednesday and talked about the uncertainty he felt when his original free agent deal with the Sox was put on hold after a hip issue, avascular necrosis (AVN), was discovered. Napoli, who had agreed to a reported three-year, $39 million contract, settled for a one-year, $5 million pact instead.

“I’m not upset at all,” Napoli said. “It’s a business. They took what they had to do to see if I’m healthy. They found that [AVN]. It kind of stinks that I’m not guaranteed $39 million. But it’s good for my health as a person, off the field, too. We went to a bunch of doctors, figured out what I can do. I got on some...
