Auburn claims title over Oregon at final gun

For nearly four quarters, the anticipated shootout between Auburn and Oregon for the BCS National Championship instead yielded to a battle of smothering defenses. But in the final five minutes, the high-powered offenses appeared in time to give Auburn a thrilling 22-19 victory that gave the Tigers the title on the strength of a record-setting 14-0 season.

 

After Oregon tied the game, 19-19, with 2:33 remaining, freshman Michael Dyer gashed the Oregon defense. He plowed for a 37-yard run to take Auburn into field goal range and then blasted up the middle for an 18-yard run to inside the one-yard line with 10 seconds left. From there, Auburn kicker Wes Bynum buried the 18-yard chip shot as time expired to give Auburn its title.

 

That wiped out what appeared to be a huge fourth-quarter comeback by the Ducks, who forced Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton to fumble when down, 19-11, with five minutes left and then drove down the...

Allen: Left shoulder 'sore' after hit

Ray Allen said he will need a night of sleep and then see how he feels after taking a vicious hit on a pick early in the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to Houston. 

 

"I just took a hard hit, and kind of collapsed on the side," Allen said of the screen set with 10:56 left in the fourth. "I’m sore, I’ll feel it [Tuesday]. My shoulder but kind of my side, you got so much adrenaline running that you don’t really feel it, once I got in the back I felt it."

 

Allen added that he didn't think it was a legal screen since - as he said, “The rule states that, if there’s a screen set, you have to give the person a chance to see the screen and then move out the way. I didn’t even know the screen was there and when I went to step I just hit the screen, and it caught me like on the side of my hip."

Doc: 'Worst defensive effort in 3 or 4 years'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers left no doubt about the level of his disappointment following a 108-102 home-court loss to an undermanned Houston Rockets team on Monday night at TD Garden. 

 

"We just weren't ready," Rivers said. "I told our guys I thought overall it was probably our worst defensive effort in three, four years as far as overall effort."

 

The Celtics allowed the Rockets to make 11-of-19 shots in the third quarter and fell apart in the fourth, as the Rockets made 10-of-15 from the field and finished shooting 53 percent for the game. to pull away for their first win in six games but third straight in Boston. The Celtics fell to 28-9 and lost consecutive games for the third time this season.

Late charge leads Bruins past Penguins
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins once again proved a third-period terror against the Penguins, scoring four unanswered goals en route to a 4-2 victory at CONSOL Energy Center.

 

With the Penguins leading, 2-0, on second-period goals from Mike Rupp and Kris Letang, the B's scored four goals in the final 3:23 of regulation. Zdeno Chara and Brad Marchand got it started by scoring goals 12 seconds apart, while Mark Recchi potted the game-winner on the power play at 19:10 and Gregory Campbell sealed it with an empty netter. 

 

The B's scored their first two power play goals in six games, and Chara scored his second goal in the last five contests. Tuukka Rask made 23 saves on 25 shots in the victory. 

 

Including their five-goal third period on Nov. 10, the Bruins have now scored nine third-period goals vs. the Penguins and allowed none.

Red Glare: Undermanned Rockets stun C's

Aaron Brooks hit a pair of clutch 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with a game-high 24 as the Rockets - playing without leading scorer Kevin Martin (out with a sore right wrist) - stunned the Celtics, 108-102, Monday at TD Garden in the opener of a season-long six-game homestand.

 

Ray Allen and Paul Pierce hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final two minutes to help the Celtics close to within four, 106-102, with 27.2 seconds remaining but the C's couldn't complete the comeback. Allen and Marquis Daniels led the Celtics with 19 points apiece. 

 

The Rockets had lost their last five and six of seven. But the Celtics fell behind at halftime and couldn't overcome the energy of Kyle Lowry, Luis Scola and the rest of the Rockets, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

 

The Celtics are off Tuesday before hosting Sacramento on Wednesday. For more, visit the Celtics team page at...
