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. Princeton plays at St. Louis in the other semifinal Wednesday.

 

BU's win came after senior guard Corey Lowe parted ways with the team. Lowe, who starred at Newton North High School, played in the Terriers' opening-round win over Oregon State and was second on the team in scoring (15.0 ppg) and first in assists (4.2). First-year BU coach Patrick Chambers...

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."

Belichick: No change in workload

Bill Belichick, in Orlando for the NFL owners meeting, told ESPN.com that he does not anticapte an increase in his coaching workload in 2010 despite the departure of defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

 

"I'm not going to take on more workload," Belichick said. "It just might be distributed a little differently. That's the way it's been in the past. My workload hasn't changed in the last 10 years. It's been distributed differently, from year to year, or even within a year, within different timeframes of the year -- between personnel and football, or offense, defense and special teams as it relates just to football."

 

The Patriots coach told ESPN.com that he will lead the defensive meeting room in 2010, a responsibility held by Pees last season. 

 

Belichick also weighed in on the...

Home run heaven: Rays outslug Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Evan Longoria and former Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach each belted a pair of home runs as the Tampa Bay Rays outlasted the Red Sox, 11-9, at City of Palms Park on Monday afternoon. The Rays hit a total of seven home runs in the game, including two off starter and loser Boof Bonser and three of Junichi Tazawa with a strong wind blowing out to right all afternoon. Bonser, battling for a roster spot, allowed six hits and five runs, while walking two, striking out two in two-plus innings.

 

Trailing 11-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh, the Red Sox rallied with their minor leaguers. Second baseman Ray Chang belted a three-run homer for the Red Sox in the seventh. The Sox added two in the eighth and three more in the ninth and had the winning run at the plate as the game ended.
