Mashup: Gov. calls UConn ban 'outrageous'

The NCAA on Thursday denied the UConn men's basketball team's final appeal of its ban from the 2013 NCAA tournament due to its failure to meet recently instituted academic standards. UConn argued that it has shown improvement over the past two seasons, but the NCAA wouldn't budge.

The school said it's hoping the rule will be changed in time for it to submit more recent test scores.

"While we as a university and coaching staff clearly should have done a better job academically with our men's basketball student-athletes in the past, the changes we have implemented have already had a significant impact and have helped us achieve the success we expect in the classroom," coach Jim Calhoun said in a statement. "We will continue to strive to maintain that success as we move forward."

Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy called the NCAA's rejection "absolutely outrageous."

"It's as if they've decided to get UConn,...

Doc blasts his Celtics as 'unacceptable'

After his team blew an 11-point halftime lead against the NBA's top team and fell to the Bulls, 93-86, Doc Rivers ripped into his Celtics in a postgame press conference Thursday night in Chicago. 

"I think it was the worst loss of the year for us," Rivers said. "I think Chicago was too tough for us tonight." 

Rivers was referring to the fact that the Bulls found a way to win without their star point guard and last year's MVP, Derrick Rose, who was missing his 12th straight game with a sore groin. 

The Celtics played tough defense in the first half, holding the Bulls to 38 percent from the field and assuming a 49-38 lead. But things fell apart quickly in the third quarter as the Bulls outscored the Celtics, 29-17. The Celtics faded badly in the fourth and never regained the lead. They were again significantly outrebounded, 44-36.

"They were too tough for us tonight," Rivers continued. "...

Overrun: Bulls power past C's in 2nd half

Luol Deng scored a game-high 26 points, picking up the slack for the injured Derrick Rose, as the Bulls overcame an 11-point halftime deficit and beat the Celtics, 93-86, Thursday night at the United Center in Chicago. Carlos Boozer added 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who were playing without Rose for the 12th straight game due to a sore groin. 

One night after missing the potential game-winning shot at the buzzer, Paul Pierce came out strong and led the Celtics with 22 points. Rajon Rondo had 10 points and 12 assists, extending his streak of games with double-digit assists to 15, the longest in the NBA since John Stockton had 15 straight in 1995. 

The Celtics lost their second straight after winning five straight and fell to 30-24 on the season. They lead the 76ers by one game in the Atlantic Division.

With Ray Allen coming off the bench for the first time in his five seasons with the Celtics, Boston shot out to a 22-18...

BC routs Minnesota in Frozen Four semis

Paul Carey scored twice as Boston College routed Minnesota, 6-1, in the Frozen Four semifinals Thursday night in Tampa. The Eagles advance to Saturday night's national championship game against Ferris State, which knocked off Union earlier Thursday, 3-1.

Parker Milner continued his stellar play in goal, making 30 saves in the win.

Steven Whitney opened the scoring for the Eagles (31-10-1), scoring the only goal of the first period. BC scored three times in the second, with Kevin Hayes scoring a power-play goal 6:35 into the period, and Chris Kreider and Carey scoring in the final 2:15, and led 4-0 after 40 minutes.

Minnesota's Jake Hansen ended Milner's nine-period scoreless streak with a goal 1:26 into the third, but Carey answered 22 seconds later and Brian Dumoulin added an insurance goal four minutes after that.

Johnny Gaudreau and Pat Mullane each had two assists for BC, which cruised despite being outshot 31-25.

No stars needed: B's beat Senators
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins didn't have all their stars on the ice, but they still beat the team they are likely to face when the playoffs begin next Thursday. Led by goaltender Anton Khudobin, the B's defeated the Senators, 3-1, in Ottawa on Thursday night. 

Khudobin made 44 saves, allowing only a Jason Spezza goal in the second period. The Bruins jumped out to a two-goal lead on tallies from Benoit Pouliot and Greg Zanon before Spezza made it a one-goal game in the second period. Milan Lucic gave the B's some insurance by scoring his 26th goal of the season in the third period. 

Adam McQuaid left the game in the second period and did not return to the game. The Bruins issued no update on McQuaid during the game aside from saying that the defenseman was "doubtful" to return.

Ben Bishop took the loss for Ottawa, allowing three goals on 27 shots. 

The Bruins were playing without Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and...
