Report: UConn forces out two assistants

The UConn basketball team forced two assistants to resign as part of its response to alleged recruiting violations, according to a Hartford Courant report. Assistant coach Pat Sellers and director of basketball operations Beau Archibald are the two who were asked to leave, the report indicated.

 

The violations allegedly occurred during the recruitment of Nate Miles, who was dismissed from the team in the fall of 2008 only two months after his arrival on campus, following his arrest for violating a restraining order made by a female student. In March 2009, Yahoo!Sports detailed the allegations of the violations in the recruitment of Miles, which included excessive contact by the coaches — including then assistant Tom Moore, now head coach at QUinnipiac.

 

UConn, which this summer announced a contract extension for Jim Calhoun that will keep him around at least four more seasons, called a news conference for 10 a.m....

'Lower body soreness' for Matsuzaka

After walking eight batters and hitting another over 4 2/3 innings against Kansas City on Thursday night, Daisuke Matsuzaka said he experienced 'lower body soreness' since allowing just one hit over eight shutout innings last Saturday in Philadelphia.

 

"It's tough to say how much effect there was because it's really a matter of my personal feel," Matsuzaka said through interpreter Masa Hoshino. "So I don't think I can describe. I think, looking back on it, yes, there was an effect."

 

The eight walks by Matsuzaka matched a career high with the Red Sox, equaling eight free passes on May 5, 2008. 

 

"I don't think that's the most important issue," Matsuzaka said of his lower body issue. "It might have looked like I got out of those innings ok but in my mind, I still felt there were still adjustments I needed to make. It's been a long time since my body didn't...

Tito: Ellsbury 'the same, not better'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after his team's 4-3 loss to the Royals at Fenway Park that Jacoby Ellsbury feels "the same, not better" and that the outfielder will be examined again Friday and Ellsbury confirmed that he will seek another opinion. 

 

"I'll be talking to one [Friday] and see what he has to say," Ellsbury said after the game. "I should have more information then." 

 

Ellsbury talked of the setback prior to the game, also pointing out that he didn't blame the team for its initial diagnosis of bruised ribs when it turned out to be four cracked ribs. 

 

“It was just, originally, we thought it was just bruised ribs and it turned out to be four fractures. For an injury like that, you had to see it on an MRI or CT scan....
