Belichick: Tebow a 'great player'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick met the media Tuesday morning at the AFC coaches breakfast during the NFL's annual meeting in Orlando, and had plenty of good things to say about Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. “Great career, great player,” Belichick told reporters. “I think it’s obvious that within the last six weeks, that he’s worked on his mechanics and they’ve improved, which is a credit to him. He’s very coachable and he works very hard. I’m sure that whatever he feels he needs to do, he’ll work very hard at, whatever that is.” For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

BU wins in OT; Lowe leaves team

John Holland scored 23 points, hitting all 11 of his free throws, and Boston University held off a pesky Morehead State team Monday night at Case Gymnasium to win in overtime, 91-89, in the quarterfinals of the College Basketball Invitational.

 

Carlos Strong added 22 points, Jake O'Brien netted 20 and Tyler Morris contributed 16 points and a single-game school-record-tying eight steals for BU (21-13), which won for the eighth time in nine games and advances to the CBI semifinals to play Wednesday night at Virginia Commonwealth, which defeated Charleston, 93-86.

Mauer: I wish Victor 'the best'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Using the same pen he signed his first professional contract, Joe Mauer signed on the dotted line at the Minnesota Twins minor league complex Monday for a record $184 million dollar contract extension through 2018. He will make $23 million a season in the fourth-richest contract ever awarded a player.

 

"One of the things we did in this process was check with the Players Association and see what they feel about it," said Mauer, who said he's aware of Victor Martinez's final year of his current contract in Boston. "It really comes down to everybody's individual's cases and in my case, I really wanted to stay in Minnesota and I really feel comfortable here. I wish Victor and everybody else out there the best in their decisions but they have to do what is right for them. I really felt this was the right situation for me."
