John Holland hit two free throws with 2.4 seconds left to cap a 15-point second-half comeback and lift Boston University past Stony Brook, 56-54, in the championship game of the America East tournament at Agganis Arena. With the win, BU clinches its first NCAA tournament berth since 2002.
Holland, the America East Player of the Year and tournament MVP, finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds. He forced a jump ball with 31 seconds left to get BU possession, setting up his winning free throws.
Stony Brook's Bryan Dougher took a running 3-pointer at the buzzer and it hit the back left iron before bouncing away. The BU faithful stormed the court to celebrate, and coach Patrick Chambers stood on the press table and fired up the crowd.
The celebration seemed unlikely in the first half. BU (21-13) missed its first seven shots and 16 of its first 19. The Terriers had three points after 12 minutes of play and...

The first work stoppage in the NFL since 1987 started Friday at midnight, as the league decided to institute a lockout of the players after negotiations between players and owners who were searching for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement broke down.
The move came at the end of an eventful 24 hours for the league and players, one that saw the two sides break off talks Friday afternoon after discussing a new proposal from the owners. The brief possibility of a third extension in the talks was raised, but shortly before 5 p.m., DeMaurice Smith of the NFLPA said it first wanted assurances it would get 10 years of audited financial information. Apparently, that was not forthcoming.
“I would dare any one of you to pull out any economic indicator that would suggest that the National Football League is falling on hard times,” Smith said. “The last 14 days, the National Football League has said, ‘Trust us.’ But...
It took exactly six minutes for the Bruins to see a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit against the Islanders Friday night at Nassau Coliseum, and an awarded empty-netter made it a 4-2 Islanders victory. The Bruins remain winless in their last four games (0-2-2).
With the B's leading 2-0 on goals from Nathan Horton and Zdeno Chara, Islanders forward Matt Moulsen scored a timely power-play goal in the final seconds of the second period. Michael Grabner and Jack Hillen would add goals early in the third period to wipe away the Bruins' lead. P.A. Parenteau was awarded an empty net goal with 10 seconds remaining when he was taken down by Milan Lucic.
Friday's regulation loss marked the first of the season in which the B's led after the second period, as they entered the game 25-0-1 in such games. The Bruins have not won since March 3, when they beat the Lightning at TD Garden for what at the time was their seventh...
