BC to open NIT vs. McNeese State

Boston College received a No. 1 seed in an NIT regional and will plays McNeese State on Tuesday at 9 p.m. The Eagles passed on hosting the game and will play instead on McNeese's home floor in Louisiana. The winner earns a second-round matchup with Northwestern or Milwaukee.


Harvard is a No. 6 seed in the same bracket and will play at third-seeded Oklahoma State, coached by former UMass coach Travis Ford. That game is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.


In other NIT first-round games of note to New England fans, America East regular-season champion Vermont is a seventh seed and plays Cleveland State in its opener. Fairfield, coached by former BC assistant Ed Cooley, has a first-round game against Coloroado State.

Buck ugly: C's beat feeble Bucks

Ray Allen had 17 points and the Celtics set a new franchise record by limiting the Bucks to 56 points in a 87-56 laugher Sunday night at TD Garden. The previous record was 57 by the Milwaukee Hawks on Feb. 27, 1955. The win snapped a two-game losing streak as the C's avoided their first three-game skid of the season. 


The Bucks came within eight points of setting a new NBA record for fewest points in a game, held by the 1999 Bulls who scored just 49 in a game on April 10, 1999. The Bucks made just 22-of-70 shots on the night, finishing by shooting just 31.4 percent for the game. 


The Celtics also set a new NBA shot-clock era record by allowing just 38 points through three quarters.  Nenad Krstic had his second straight double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. The Celtics led 20-9 after 1, 39-22 at the half and 60-38 after three.

BC's Donahue: 'We got what we deserved'

Boston College coach Steve Donahue spoke to the media Sunday night after learning that his team was not selected for the NCAA tournament. Donahue, who accepted an invitation for the NIT, said he was saddened for his seniors but not shocked by the selection committee's decision.


"We got what we deserved. That's the bottom line," Donahue said. "We've got to work harder, we've got to do things better."


BC will learn its opponent in the NIT at about 9 p.m. Sunday. The Eagles are expected to have a first-round game at Harvard, Vermont or Fairfield.


BC senior Joe Trapani also expressed disappointment that his final game will not be in the NCAAs, but he accepted the fact that the Eagles did not do enough to earn a bid.


"Woulda, coulda, shoulda, everybody does that," he said. "The good teams find a way."

Rivers: Not thinking about No. 1 seed at all

Speaking before his team's game with the Bucks at TD Garden Sunday night, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that claiming the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference is no longer a primary goal for the C's. Rivers explained that simply getting through the regular season in good physical shape is the priority.


"I would like it. It's not going to be a deal-breaker for us, honestly," said Rivers, whose team was one game ahead of No. 2 Chicago heading into Sunday night's game. "I want it, though. I think it's important. But right now I can say I'm not focused on that at all. I'm not thinking about the one-seed at all. Early in the year we were clearly thinking about it, but right now I think about getting guys back healthy. Let's act like a one-seed even if we're not."


Along the lines of what Rivers talked about regarding the importance of getting bodies back healthy for the Celts, the coach touched on the...
