Faulk: 'Crushed' by being inactive for SB

Patriots running back Kevin Faulk, in an interview on NESN, said that he was initially devastated when he was told by team running backs coach Ivan Fears on the morning of the game that he would be inactive for the Super Bowl.

"That morning, when I got the word that I wasn’t going to dress, wow," said Faulk. "I went in the room, cried a little bit, because 75 percent of me knew that this could be my last game playing, not playing, just dressing. If I dress there could possibly be that chance that I could play. So that really crushed me a whole lot."

That said, Faulk was able to reflect on the fact that longtime teammate Troy Brown was inactive for what proved to be his final game in Super Bowl XLII, and felt that he could follow in Brown's footsteps. By the time the game arrived, Faulk said that he was invested in his team's fortunes rather than dwelling on his own.

"Once the game started, it wasn't about...

Tired Celtics get beat in Toronto

The Celtics have not been that bad in back-to-backs this season. Coming into Friday's game against the Raptors, they had won four of six on the second night and each of the last three. However, all four of those wins had been at the Garden and their two losses -- at New Orleans and Indiana -- ranked as two of the worst losses of the season.

You can add Friday night's 86-74 loss in Toronto to the list as the Celtics looked not only old and tired, but disorganized and ineffective. They scored 14 points in the first quarter and 17 in the third quarter, which put the struggles squarely on the starters.

Rajon Rondo had his worst game of the season, shooting 2-for-10 with five turnovers and it wasn't just him. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen combined for just 18 points and the trio were outscored by their Toronto counterparts, 52-23.

The Celtics are back in action on Sunday against the Bulls at the Garden. They have lost three straight games to Chicago...

Casey, Miller lead Harvard past Penn

Kyle Casey and Corbin Miller scored 17 points apiece and 25th-ranked Harvard knocked off Pennsylvania on Friday night in Philadelphia, 56-50, to establish firm control of first place in the Ivy League.

Keith Wright grabbed 13 rebounds for the Crimson (21-2, 7-0 Ivy), who remain alone in first place and now own road victories over the two closest challengers in Penn and Yale, who both have two league losses (Yale lost Friday night in overtime at Cornell).

Zack Rosen led Penn (12-11, 4-2) with 16 points.

Miller, a freshman guard, came in averaging 3.4 points per game, but he hit 3-of-7 treys in recording a career high in points. He helped Harvard take a five-point lead at the half. Despite scoring just two points in the first 8:14 of the second half, the Crimson were tied at 30 when Miller hit a long trey for a lead they would not relinquish. Miller hit a jumper with 8:40 remaining to cap an 11-2 run. When he hit another 3-pointer just over a...

Rask: Want to eventually be a starter

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, after making comments in a Finnish publication that were interpreted as a complaint about playing time, told that his comments had been exaggerated. Still, he did not disavow completely the sentiments that had been ascribed to him.

"That Google Translate sucks," Rask told "I said 'Obviously I don't want to be sitting on the bench my whole career and I like it here, but obviously I want to play and sometimes you play a great game and then next game you can't play and sometimes it gets frustrating but you don't show it for the team.'

"I am happy and I feel good [this season] for the most...

Lucchino: Sox waiting on Varitek, Wakefield

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino, in an appearance on Sirius/XM MLB Network Radio's "Inside Pitch," said that the team is hopeful that catcher Jason Varitek and pitcher Tim Wakefield will make decisions about their career course by the start of spring training. Lucchino said that both veterans have been invited to take part in spring training with the Sox, presumably on minor league deals that would not offer either a guaranteed job.

"We're hopeful that those guys will make decisions before spring training starts as to whether they would like to come back. They have each been invited to come to camp. But Tim is approaching his 46th year I think. Jason Varitek is approaching his 40th year. Those things are hard decisions. They have both been enormously valuable to the club," said Lucchino. "Whenever they choose to retire -- and retirement is inevitable at some point, obviously, whether it's this year or its next...
