Syracuse fires Fine after third allegation

Syracuse University fired assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine Sunday, the same day a third man made allegations that Fine molested him.

"At the direction of Chancellor Cantor, Bernie Fine's employment with Syracuse University has been terminated, effective immediately," Kevin Quinn, the school's senior vice president for public affairs, said in a statement.

Fine, 65, was on paid administrative leave following accusations by two former ball boys. They have been joined by Zach Tomaselli, a 23-year-old from Lewiston, Maine, who told The Associated Press Sunday that Fine molested him in 2002. Tomaselli is facing sexual assault charges in Maine involving a 14-year-old boy, and his father said Tomaselli is lying about Fine. But Tomaselli insists he went on a road trip to Pittsburgh and was fondled by Fine in a hotel room.

Also on Sunday, ESPN played an audiotape of an October 2002 phone conversation between Bobby Davis, one of the...

Brady: Welker 'a phenomenal player'

Before Wes Welker hauled in a 41-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady on Sunday in the Patriots' 38-20 victory over the Eagles, the wide receiver told his quarterback exactly what he was going to do.

"He said before the play if I get this certain look, I'm going to fake like I'm running the in cut and run the post," Brady said. "He did it and came to the sideline and he's like, 'I told you.' It's nice when they work out how you talk about and Wes is so consistent and reliable. He's a phenomenal player."

Welker's touchdown gave the Pats a 21-10 lead and erased an early 10-point deficit. He later added a 9-yard score and finished the game with eight catches for 115 yards. Brady was 24-for-34 for 361 yards and three touchdowns. 

"It's good to come on the road and get a win," Brady said. "[Philly is] a team that obviously has a lot of good players Getting down 10-0 and rallying, coming...

Dream scheme: Pats crush Eagles

PHILADELPHIA -- Wes Welker caught a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady while BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored twice on a pair of short touchdown runs as the Patriots erased an early deficit and cruised to a 38-20 win over the Eagles Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. Brady also hit Rob Gronkowski for a 24-yard TD pass over the middle in the fourth quarter as he finished 24-of-34 for 361 yards and three touchdowns. 

The Patriots fell behind quickly, 10-0, as several breakdowns in their secondary cost them dearly against Vince Young. The Eagles quarterback filling in for the injured Michael Vick, hit on completions of 22, 58 and 44 yards, twice beating Kyle Arrington. LeSean McCoy scored on a two-yard run off tackle on the first drive and Alex Henery drilled a 43-yard field goal to put the Eagles up early. 

But the Patriots defense stiffened, containing Young and LeSean McCoy while Brady and Welker got warmed up. Brady completed...

BC can't keep pace with New Mexico

Drew Gordon had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead New Mexico past Boston College, 75-57, in the fifth-place game of the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Matt Humphrey and Lonnie Jackson scored 12 points apiece for BC (2-4), while Patrick Heckmann netted 10.

The Lobos (4-2), who never trailed, jumped out a big lead early and led by 16 at the break, 41-25, after a Hugh Greenwood 3-pointer in the closing seconds. The lead was up to 22 points with 13:58 left after a Greenwood jumper. But Boston College did not quit, embarking on a 20-6 run and closing to within eight points with 4:44 remaining when Ryan Anderson tipped in a rebound to make it 62-54. New Mexico answered with a 7-0 run, with the last five from Gordon, to put the game away.

BC returns home to welcome Penn State, led by former Boston University coach Patrick Chambers, on Wednesday night.

Mallett completes Patriots inactives list

PHILADELPHIA -- The Patriots listed third quarterback Ryan Mallett as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Mallett has been inactive for all but one of 11 games so far in his rookie season. He was active in Week 3 against Buffalo. 

The six remaining inactive Patriots players were all announced Saturday night by the team, including receiver Chad Ochocinco, who didn't practice Friday with a bad hamstring. 

Also inactive are safety Patrick Chung (ankle), cornerback Devin McCourty (shoulder), linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Brandon Spikes (knee) and center Dan Connolly (groin). 

The Eagles have made quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) and receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder/hamstring) inactive for the game. Vince Young will start for the Eagles while cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who hyperextended his left knee in practice on Thursday, will be active and play for Philadelphia.
