BC goes cold in loss to Wisconsin

Reggie Jackson scored 18 points, but Boston College could not overcome an 18-0 run by Wisconsin midway through the second half and fell to the Badgers, 65-55, in the semifinals of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla.

 

Jon Leuer had 18 points and seven rebounds for Wisconsin (4-1), which advances to Sunday night's championship game vs. the winner of Friday's game between Notre Dame and California. The Eagles (3-2) will play a consolation game Sunday.

 

Jackson hit 4-of-5 shots in the first half, but he went cold in the second, missing his first 11 shots and finishing the period at 2-for-16. Joe Trapani was the only other Eagle in double figures, netting 11 points.

 

BC led by as much as nine points in the first half and six in the second, but the Eagles couldn't keep the Badgers at bay. The teams were tied at 36 when Wisconsin embarked on an 18-0 run to pull away. Trapani finally ended BC's drought when...

Hill: Patriots tried to break my arm

Lions quarterback Shaun Hill has accused the Patriots to break his left arm during a play in Thursday's game, according to MLive.com.

Hill alleges that during a quarterback sneak during the second quarter of Thursday's game, he extended his arms toward the goal line and felt someone in the scrum trying to break his arm, which was broken five weeks ago.

"That's why I eventually gave up on the ball," Hill told reporters. "Somebody was down there [in the pile] literally trying to break my arm, which is already broken. Literally, trying. And, uh, you know, I guess wasn't seen by officials."

Thomas to start for Bruins vs. Hurricanes
By: DJ Bean

In speaking with the media prior to Friday's noon start, Bruins coach Claude Julien said that Tim Thomas will be between the pipes when the B's take on the Hurricanes at TD Garden. 

 

Thomas, 36, is 11-1-1 with a 1.46 goals against average in 14 starts. He leads the league with a .955 save percentage and is tied for the league lead with four shutouts. He most recently made 31 saves in the team's 3-1 victory over the Panthers in Florida on Wednesday. 

 

Julien also said the the lines "will be kind of the same" as they were in the third period of Wednesday's game. With the team trailing, 1-0, in the third period, Julien reunited the Blake Wheeler - David Krejci - Michael Ryder line of years past, sticking Patrice Bergeron between Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton. Gregory Campbell centered Jordan Caron and Mark Recchi, while Tyler Seguin returned to center on a line with Brad Marchand and Shawn Thornton....

Tigers: Martinez 'primarily' to serve as DH

The Detroit Tigers made their signing of former Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez official, announcing the four-year deal in a press release. The Tigers, who praised Martinez as a middle-of-the-order hitter, said in the release that the switch-hitting 31-year-old will serve "primarily" as a designated hitter for the club while also catching about two or three games a week.

 

“We expect Victor to be in our lineup on a daily basis, serving primarily as our club’s designated hitter and catching two to three times a week,” Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski said in the release. “He also has the ability to fill in at first base and his versatility allows us to keep a premier bat in our lineup every day. We’ve discussed this role with...

Mashup: Revis gets revenge on T.O.

In the lead-up up to Thursday's Bengals-Jets game, Terrell Owens called Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis "average" and said he had yet to prove he was more than a one-year wonder. Thursday night, Revis let his actions do the talking, helping to hold T.O. to three catches for 17 yards in New York's 26-10 win. "Just trying to make ends meet out there for an average corner," Revis said. "They stuck me on the best receiver, Terrell Owens. I was kind of shocked that they put an average corner on one of the best receivers in the league. But I guess I managed to do OK against him."

 

Revis, who last year criticized Owens and then-Patriots receiver Randy Moss, admitted that Owens' comments fired him up. "I didn't like it," Revis said of the comments. "I felt that it was disrespectful. I mean I'm sure he felt the same way when I called him a slouch last year. So it goes vice versa with the feelings. I felt he...
