Jackson, Trapani lead BC past UMass

Reggie Jackson and Joe Trapani scored 17 points each and Boston College held off UMass, 76-71, Saturday night in the Tip-Off Classic at Boston Garden.

 

Josh Southern added 16 points for BC, which improved to 6-2. Anthony Gurley had a game-high 22 points for UMass, which suffered its first loss in eight games this season.

 

BC never trailed in the game, although UMass cut an 11-point halftime deficit to two points and had multiple chances to tie the score or take the lead. UMass was last within a possession at 70-67 with just over a minute remaining. But Southern got free for a layup, and after a UMass miss, Trapani snuck free for another layup, and the game was out of reach.

 

The Eagles return to action Wednesday night when they host Providence.

Deion on Carter: 'I could really care less'

FOXBORO — Deion Branch always wears a bright, genuine smile so it’s really hard to tell if he’s ever genuinely ticked off. Even after being told that Cris Carter thinks he’s ‘just a guy’ in the Patriots receiving game, Branch sounded like someone completely focused on Monday’s battle with the 9-2 Jets than getting into one with a retired receiver and current NFL analyst, who happens to be great friends with - and former Vikings teammate of - Randy Moss, now with the Titans.

 

“He’s just a guy. You guys have to be real about it,” Carter, now an ESPN analyst, told WEEI’s “Big Show on Friday. “Great players, they don’t get hurt as much as the other players. There’s a difference between great ones and good ones and average ones.”

 

Branch offered his good-natured reply on Saturday in the Patriots locker room. “Who me?...

Scott Cordischi and John Rooke take your calls, texts, tweets and emails on the week's hot topics. The boys are back together in studio! It’s a bittersweet reunion due to the end of the NCAABB Tournament run for the PC Friars, so we say “see you next season” to the play by play team of John Rooke and Joe Hassett. We don’t waste time looking ahead with the issues confronting the men’s basketball program at URI and PC. On the table is the argument over the validity of RPI, outgoing coveted players, incoming recruits and whether Coaches Dan Hurley and Ed Cooley will remain after their successful 2014 season. Some time is spent on the NFL owners meetings, with the whiny Baltimore Ravens and a ranting Bill Belichick. We close March in all it’s madness, with “Three Things” where we celebrate the open mic and a young man’s passion .
