CHESTNUT HILL -- Continuing a remarkable turnaround, Boston College got a go-ahead touchdown run of four yards from Montel Harris late in the third quarter to help the Eagles beat Virginia, 17-13, Saturday on Senior Day at Alumni Stadium. After five straight losses that left them 2-5, BC won its fourth straight to become bowl eligible for the 12th straight season.
After Harris was knocked out of the game with a left knee injury, true freshman Andre Williams picked up the slack, running 12 times for 108 yards, including a key 60-yard scamper the play before Harris' go-ahead four-yard TD run.
The game marked the first time since Nov. 11, 2006 that a pair of BC backs run for 100 yards since L.V Whitworth rushed for 118 and Andre Callender ran for 105 against Duke.
BC is now 6-5 and 4-4 in the ACC and finish up with a road game at Syracuse next Saturday afternoon. For complete coverage,...
CHESTNUT HILL -- Just after becoming Boston College's second-leading rusher of all-time, junior tailback Montel Harris sustained a left knee injury and was knocked out of the game against Virgina.
The team announced he would not return for the fourth quarter of the game against Virginia. The school confirmed Harris was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center for an MRI. He will meet Sunday morning with team physicians and consult with coaches to determine his status for next Saturday’s game against Syracuse.
Harris ran a cutback for four yards and a touchdown late in the third quarter to give Boston College the lead, 17-13, in a game that Eagles needed to become bowl eligible. Harris appeared to injure the knee two runs later on BC's next offensive series. Before leaving due to his injury, Harris had 24 carries for 114 yards, giving him exactly 3,600 for his career, three more than Mike Cloud and just...
Bruins coach Claude Julien took a few minutes to reflect on the late Pat Burns, who died on Friday after a lengthy battle with cancer. The three-time Jack Adams award winner and Stanley Cup Champion in 2003 was 58.
Julien knew Burns while Julien was still playing in the AHL and Burns was coaching, but it wasn't until the two were both "in the same coaching fraternity" that they got to know one another best. Julien has coached for the Canadiens, Devils and Bruins, three teams Burns once led.
"The one thing everybody knows about Pat was he was sincere and direct and there was no beating around the bush with him, but the part that people didn’t always see was that away from all of that was that he was a really good guy," Julien said. "I know that I was fortunate enough to kind of follow his path. It certainly wasn’t done purposely, but I was fortunate enough to follow his path and maybe...
In just his second game back, Delonte West took a leadership role after a surprising 89-84 home-court loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were playing without injured superstar Kevin Durant.
"This team didn't even have to play with desperation to beat us tonight," West said of the Thunder. "That's one of our biggest concerns this year, being complacent, doing what we did tonight."
The Celtics fell behind by as many as 10 in the third quarter before making a late charge and drawing to within one, 85-84, on West's two free throws with 1:16 left in the fourth.
"It's not like we put up a fight," West said. "We just left it out on the table. Seemed like the whole game we were seaching for a challenge. It's not like we put up a fight. We just left it out on the table. Seemed like the whole game we were seaching for a challenge. It was almost like in the third...
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo sustained a strained left hamstring with just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of Friday's 89-84 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at TD Garden.
Just moments after picking up his fifth foul, Rondo fell to the floor and didn't get up immediately while holding his left leg. Trainer Ed Lacerte came onto the court and gave him treatment. Rondo stayed in the game following a 20-second timeout but eventually left a minute later for Delonte West while team trainers stretched out his left leg on the sideline.
Rondo, who was held to seven assists on the night, returned with 4:57 left but coach Doc Rivers took him out for good just 13 seconds later. "He just wasn't running right," Rivers explained afterward.
Rondo's status for Sunday's game in Toronto is unknown. "Just get treatment [Saturday] and we'll see," Rondo said afterward....
