Williams, UMass run past BC

Sophomore point guard Chaz Williams had 16 points, five assists and three steals to lead UMass to a 82-46 victory over Boston College Monday night at Conte Forum.

Freddie Riley added 14 points for the Minutemen, who improved to 4-0.

Patrick Heckmann led BC (1-2) with 11 points, while Matt Humphrey netted 10.

The Minutemen forced the action at both ends, fast-breaking whenever they could and pressing to force the inexperienced Eagles into 23 turnovers and 31 percent shooting. UMass also controlled the boards, holding a 46-31 advantage.

BC held a 20-19 lead midway through the opening period, but UMass took the lead for good with 8:34 remaining on a Williams jumper and closed the period on an 18-6 run for a 37-26 lead at the break. BC never got within 10 points the rest of the way. UMass kept the game at a safe distance and then used a late 14-0 run -- fueled by seven points from Riley and five from Williams -- to end any hopes of a BC...

Alomar out; Lamont to meet owners

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, following managerial candidate Bobby Valentine's session with the media, said that the Red Sox now have three candidates in the running for the vacancy created when the team and Terry Francona parted ways in the days after the season: Valentine, Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont and Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo.

Lamont will be brought in to meet with team owners as a second-round candidate in the coming days. Lovullo has not yet been scheduled to return. Meanwhile, Cherington said that he told Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. over the weekend that he is no longer in the running for the job.

"I had a talk with Sandy this weekend and told him how much I think of him and that I think he’s going to be a really good major-league manager one day but that he wasn’t going to be the choice for us in 2012," said Cherington, who noted that the 2012 season will be Alomar's first as a coach who...

Chung, Faulk, McCourty all out vs. Chiefs

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have designated three linebackers as well as safety Patrick Chung and running back Kevin Faulk inactive for their Monday night game against the Chiefs.

Brandon Spikes (knee), Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness) all missed practice time this week with various ailments and will not play. Devin McCourty returned to practice on Saturday after injuring his right shoulder in the second quarter last week against the Jets. He is inactive. 

Patrick Chung will miss his second straight game with a foot injury he suffered late in the loss to the Giants on Nov. 6 at Gillette Stadium. He appeared to turn his right ankle and hasn't played since. He has practiced but has been kept out of the games.

Also inactive is veteran running back Kevin Faulk, who returned from the PUP list on Oct. 30 against the Steelers and was the leading rusher. But he was inactive the next week against the Giants and got little action...

Report: Cassel headed to IR, season over

FOXBORO -- Matt Cassel will not get a chance at a comeback this season as he is headed to injured reserve, according to an ESPN report

Chiefs coach Todd Haley confirmed earlier Monday that Cassel broke his right hand on Nov. 13 against the Broncos, an injury that required surgery last week. ESPN extended the report in the hours before Monday's game at Gillette Stadium that the quarterback who made his mark replacing the injured Tom Brady in 2008 will be placed on season-ending injured reserve according to a league source. 

Haley said there is no ligament damage in the hand. Previously, the team has referred to the injury only as "significant." He had surgery on the hand last week.

Fox Sports reported Sunday that the hand was broken in the loss against the Broncos last Sunday and Cassel will miss the rest of...

He's back: Pats sign Ventrone, cut Thomas

FOXBORO -- Safety Ross Ventrone is on the move again, this time to the Patriots active squad as the team signed him from the practice squad in the hours before Monday night's game with the Chiefs. To make room, the team released offensive lineman Donald Thomas.

This is the 16th transaction this season for the 25-year-old Ventrone, who has spent time on both the practice squad and 53-man roster this season, playing in five games.

Ventrone, 5-8, 190 pounds, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Villanova on April 29, 2010. He spent the majority of his rookie season in 2010 on the team's practice squad. Thomas, 26, is a veteran of three NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins (2008-2009) and the Detroit Lions (2010).

Thomas, 6-4, 310 pounds, was signed by the Patriots on Sept. 14, 2011 and has played in four games with New England. He originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick out of Connecticut in 2008...
