Mannix on D&H: Game 6 refs good for C's

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about the Celtics-Magic series. Mannix said the officiating crew assigned to Game 6 — Mike Callahan, Monty McCutchen and Ken Mauer — appears to be one that will help Boston's cause. "It will be a liberally called game," Mannix said. "Just based on the names and what you're saying, I think that favors Boston. I think they're going to be able to get away with a little bit more physically against Dwight Howard and some other guys. That's a good trio, I think for the Celtics."

 

Looking back at Ed F. Rush's ejection of Kendrick Perkins in Game 5, Mannix said the blame needs to be passed around. "I believe Eddie made a bone-headed call, I believe he wouldn't have made that call if he remembered that Perkins had one technical foul, but I've got to slap some responsibility on Kendrick Perkins, too," Mannix said.

UConn accused of 8 violations

At a Friday morning press conference, the University of Connecticut revealed that the NCAA discovered eight violations in the men's basketball program. The alleged violations include improper phone calls and text messages to recruits, as well as giving recruits improper benefits. Coach Jim Calhoun, who recently signed a contract extension that will keep him in Storrs for at least four more years, was cited for failing to "promote an atmosphere of compliance."

 

The announcement on the Storrs campus came a day after assistant coach Patrick Sellers and director of basketball operations Beau Archibald resigned, reportedly at the request of the school. UConn will appear before the NCAA in October to address the accusations.

Sox prospect tosses six no-hit innings

Right-hander Stolmy Pimentel, considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Red Sox system, tossed six no-hit innings on Thursday for the Salem Red Sox of the High-A Carolina League. That dominant outing came two starts after the 20-year-old threw six perfect innings for Salem.

 

On the year, despite being one of the youngest pitchers in the Carolina League, Pimentel has produced solid marks. He is now 4-2 with a 3.72 ERA on the season.

Wilbon on D&C: Rondo has to be hurt

Michael Wilbon of ESPN and The Washington Post joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Celtics-Magic series. Asked for his prediction for Friday night's Game 6, Wilbon said: "[My opinion] is tainted, completely colored by history. ... What's in my gut is the Boston Celtics don't lose this game at home."

 

Wilbon agreed with the assertion that the Celtics' experience in big games will be a factor. "Boston has so many more guys that are tested in that way than Orlando," he said. "You'd think that would count for something tonight."

 

However, Wilbon noted the effect of the Celtics' injuries, real or imagined. "There's no way that Rondo is not hurting. He's not exploding past his man like he did in the first three games. He's not even attempting it," Wilbon said, wondering: "Do they have enough physically to get through tonight's game?"
