Mashup: Knicks coach D'Antoni rips NY fans

Knicks fans have found a hero in Harvard product Jeremy Lin, who scored 28 points Monday night in his first career start and led his shorthanded team past the Jazz.

But New York coach Mike D'Antoni was not pleased with the Madison Square Garden faithful, who booed Jared Jeffries on an inconsistent night for the Knicks forward who was filling in for Amar'e Stoudemire (with his family in Florida after the death of his brother).

"Indulge me for a second, anybody who boos Jared Jeffries has got to reexamine their life a little bit," D'Antoni said after Jeffries scored 13 points while shooting 3-for-9 and missing a couple of layups in the process. "I love our fans and I like Madison Square Garden, the arena, but here's a guy who came back to us, minimum contract. He could've gone to a lot of other teams. He plays as hard as anybody could possibly ever play, with injuries, everything you ask him. He takes every charge, every dirty play,...

BU, BC advance to Beanpot final

Boston University and Boston College will once again play for the Beanpot after both schools easily handled their opening-round games on Monday. This will be the 21st meeting in the finals between the two rivals, with BU holding a 12-8 series edge. The last time another school won the Beanpot was Harvard in 1993.

The Terriers opened play with a 3-1 victory over Harvard as Wade Megan scored twice in the second period and Kieran Millan made 29 saves. It's the 26th finals appearance in the last 29 years for Boston University, which took over the No. 1 ranking in the U.S. College Hockey Online poll earlier in the day.

The Eagles routed Northeastern, 7-1, in the nightcap as Johnny Gaudreau, Steven Whitney and Paul Carey scored two goals apiece. Boston College has won three of the last four Beanpots, including a 2010 final victory over BU.

Sox outright Atchison to Pawtucket

Red Sox pitcher Scott Atchison, who was designated for assignment on Jan. 26 to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Cody Ross, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Though no longer on the 40-man roster, the right-hander will be invited to big league camp with the Sox.

Atchison, 35, was 1-0 with a 3.26 ERA, 17 strikeouts and six walks in 17 games (30 1/3 innings) for the Red Sox in 2011, a season in which he frequently shuttled between the majors and Triple-A. That followed a 2010 campaign in which Atchison had a 4.50 ERA in 43 big league games.

News of Atchison clearing waivers was first reported (via twitter) by Maureen Mullen of CSN New England.

Belichick confirms McDaniels is next OC
By: DJ Bean

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday at Gillette Stadium that Josh McDaniels will succeed Bill O'Brien as the team's offensive coordinator. McDaniels, who held the position with the Patriots from 2006-2008, and after stops in Denver and St. Louis, was brought back as an offensive assistant prior to the playoffs, as the Rams did not intend to keep him. 

"Josh," Belichick said when asked about the position.

O'Brien was hired last month as head coach at Penn State. He had been with the Patriots since 2007.

Now 35, McDaniels first came to the Patriots in 2001 as a personnel assistant. He left following the 2008 season to become the head coach of the Broncos, but was fired midway through his second season on the job. He became the Rams' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach last season.

Harvard climbs back into AP Top 25

The Harvard basketball team, riding an eight-game winning streak and off to the best start in school history, checked in at No. 25 in the AP media poll that was released Monday afternoon. The Crimson made a brief appearance in the poll two months ago for the first time ever, before a loss to UConn knocked them out.

Harvard also moved up two spots to 21 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

Harvard (20-2, 6-0 Ivy), has a key road trip this weekend, with games at Penn (Friday) and Princeton (Saturday). Penn has one league loss (12-10 overall), while Princeton, which shared last year's title with the Crimson, is 2-3 (11-10 overall).
