Mashup: NBA advised ref not to sue reporter

NBA referee Bill Spooner is suing an Associated Press reporter over a tweet that reported Spooner promised a makeup call to Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis. The league said Tuesday that it investigated and cleared Spooner after the accusation but advised against the defamation suit. Nonetheless, Spooner went ahead, and some legal analysts say he might have a chance to win.

BC routs McNeese State in NIT opener

Reggie Jackson scored 15 of his 22 points in the first half as top-seeded Boston College cruised to a 82-64 victory over eighth-seeed McNeese State in an opening-round game of the NIT in Lake Charles, La.

 

Corey Raji contributed 15 points and 11 rebounds for BC (21-12), which advances to play the winner of Wednesday night's game between Northwestern and Milwaukee. Also for the Eagles, Biko Paris had 14 points and five assists, and Josh Southern scored 13 points on 5-for-6 shooting. As a team, BC shot an impressive 51.7 percent, incuding 47.8 percent from 3-point range (11-for-23).

 

The Eagles jumped out to a big early lead and led 41-19 at the half. McNeese made a late-game charge and got within 12, but Joe Trapani (10 points) hit two free throws with 2:45 left and Jackson drilled a 3-pointer 30 seconds later to end the threat.

 

Patrick Richard scored 22 points for McNeese, which ends its season...

Seguin, Rask star in Bruins' shootout win
By: DJ Bean

Tyler Seguin was given just 9:57 of ice time Tuesday night, but he co-starred with Tuukka Rask in a 3-2 shootout victory over the Blue Jackets that ended a four-game losing streak. 

 

The Bruins fell behind in the final minute of the first period when Grant Clitsome sent a blast from the blue line past Tuukka Rask, but a Zdeno Chara shot that went off David Krejci would tie it in the second. With the Bruins trailing in the third period and Nathan Horton in the box for holding the stick, Rich Peverley scored the B's eighth shorthanded goal of the season, beating Steve Mason for his 16th goal of the season. 

 

Rask, who had 32 saves in regulation, made timely saves in the third period in stopping Jakub Voracek, Antoine Vermette, Derick Brassard and Derek Dorsett on key Blue Jackets opportunities. He followed that by stopping Rick Nash and Fedor Tyutin in the shootout. 

 

The Bruins will head...

Harvard, Vermont bow out of NIT

Marshall Moses scored 18 points to lead third-seeded Oklahoma State to a 71-54 victory over sixth-seeded Harvard in the first round of the NIT in Stillwater, Okla.

 

Kyle Casey had 13 points and seven rebounds to lead the way for Havard, which ends its season at 23-7. Keith Wright and Laurent Rivard each scored 10.

 

Oklahoma State, coached by former UMass coach Travis Ford, had a 41-27 lead at the half. The Cowboys shot 54 percent from the field while Harvard was at 40 percent.

 

In other NIT action involving New England teams, Norris Cole scored 22 points, including his team's final six, to lead second-seeded Cleveland State to a 63-60 home victory over seventh-seeded Vermont. Matt Glass' 3-point attempt at the buzzer to tie the game bounced off the rim multiple times before falling away.

 

Pat Bergmann scored 16 to lead the Catamounts, regular-season champions of the America...

Daisuke delivers as Sox beat Tigers

Daisuke Matsuzaka quieted some of the concerns about his spring by delivering five shutout innings against the Tigers. He showed good life on his fastball, which touched 93 mph on the scoreboard in Lakeland, while allowing just two hits and one walk while striking out five. In the process, he lowered his spring ERA from 11.42 to 7.24.

 

The Red Sox collected just three hits against the Tigers (and starter Justin Verlander), though that proved a sufficient output to garner a 2-1 victory in extra innings. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a solo homer in the third inning, and Darnell McDonald added a solo shot in the top of the 10th.

 

Former Sox catcher Victor Martinez, now serving primarily as the designated hitter for the Tigers, was 1-for-2 with a single and walk in three plate appearances.
