Heckmann nets 32 as BC tips Riverside in OT

Patrick Heckmann scored 32 points, including BC's final four points over overtime, to lead the Eagles to a 66-62 victory over UC Riverside in a consolation game at the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Heckmann hit 9-of-13 field goals, 4-of-5 3-pointers and all 10 of his free throws. The rest of the team shot just 10-of-34 from the field. Matt Humphrey was the only other Eagle in double figures, with 11 points.

Phil Martin led UC Riverside (1-4) with 22 points. The Highlanders rallied from six points down in the final minute of regulation, hitting two 3-pointers. BC had a shot to win it, but Humphrey missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds, and Gabe Moton's tip-in was waved off for being too late.

BC (2-3), which snapped a three-game losing streak, closes out play at the tournament Sunday at 4 p.m. in the fifth-place game, meeting the winner of Friday night's game between New Mexico and Washington State.

BC football ends season with win over Miami

Chase Rettig threw two touchdown passes to Chris Pantale and Boston College closed out the season on a high note, with a 24-17 road victory over Miami Friday afternoon.

Pantale's second TD, a 32-yarder with 12:08 left in the third quarter, put BC (4-8, 3-5 ACC) ahead for good. Miami (6-6, 3-5) drew within seven points on a Jake Wieclaw field goal with 14 seconds remaining in the game, but the ensuing onside kick went out of bounds.

In the same game in which he set the school record for caeer tackles, BC linebacker Luke Keuchley returned an interception for a touchdown. It was one of four BC picks of Jacory Harris, who had thrown five interceptions all season. Keuchly also set a single-season ACC record for tackles, breaking his own record of 183 from last year.

During the game, Miami announced a four-year contract extension for coach Al Golden, taking him through Feb. 1, 2020. Golden had been rumored to be a candidate for some high-profile...

B's streak ends as Wings win shootout
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins' winning streak was halted at 10 games by the Red Wings Friday, as the B's fell to Detroit, 3-2, in a matinee decided by a shootout. 

Todd Bertuzzi scored in the third round of the shootout to give the Red Wings the win after the Red Wings and Bruins had gotten goals from Pavel Datsyuk and Nathan Horton, respectively. 

Though the Bruins dominated early, Valtteri Filppula gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead on a give-and-go with Henrik Zetterberg. Daniel Paille tied it in the second period, but Pavel Datsyuk answered back when he beat Tuukka Rask 35 seconds later to give Detroit the lead back. 

Patrice Bergeron tied the game once again for the Bruins in the third period when he picked Zetterberg's pocket in front and beat Jimmy Howard with a powerful wrist shot to knot the game at two.

The Bruins will return to action Saturday, when they host the Jets for the first time since the Thrashers' relocation.

Report: Vick out for Sunday

According to a report from Albert Breer of NFL Network, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will almost certainly miss Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. Vick broke multiple ribs in Week 10 vs. the Cardinals and did not play in last Sunday's win over the Giants.

"Every indication is Eagles QB Mike Vick will miss his second straight game on Sunday, according to league source," Breer posted on Twitter Friday afternoon. "Those I've talked to would be shocked if Vick goes. So count on Vince Young starting against the Patriots."

Young started in the win over the Giants but struggled, throwing three interceptions.
