Finley on C's: 'Opportunity' for title

Michael Finley addressed reporters 90 minutes prior to Sunday's game against Washington and expressed gratitude for a chance to play for the Celtics. "It gave me an opportunity to challenge for a title," Finley said. "All those things combined with the over history of Boston just drew me here." Finley, who suffered what he called a severe ankle injury in December, said he is ready to play and will wear the No. 40. He was held out and inactive for Sunday's game. Finley said his familiarity with coach Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen made Boston a good fit for him. He said he had talks with another "championship" caliber team before deciding on the Celtics. For more, including audio and video, visit the Green Street blog.

Hometown boy Kelly gets win for Sox

Top pitching prospect Casey Kelly returned to his hometown of Sarasota, Fla., and earned the win by pitching two shutout innings in the Red Sox' 5-4 victory over the Orioles Sunday afternoon. Kelly didn't allow a hit, struck out one and walked one in pitching the seventh and eighth innings for the Sox. The Red Sox were able to come back for the win thanks to three runs in the eighth inning and another in the ninth. Catcher Mark Wagner went deep for the Sox, while Jed Lowrie chipped in with two hits. Also pitching for the Sox were Clay Buchholz (2IP, 5H, 3R), Scott Atchison (IP, H), Boof Bonser (2IP, H), Daniel Bard (IP, 2H, R) and Robert Manuel, who pitched a scoreless/hitless ninth, striking out a pair, in earning the save.

BC stumbles in regular-season finale

Boston College wilted down the stretch and lost its regular-season finale to North Carolina State, 66-54, Sunday afternoon in Raleigh, N.C.

 

Win or lose, the Eagles (15-15, 6-10 ACC) already were locked into the No. 8 seed for the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C. The Eagles will take on No. 9 seed Virginia Thursday at noon in the tournament's opening game. NC State (17-14, 5-11) is the 11th seed.

 

Virginia (14-15, 5-11) announced Sunday that leading scorer Sylven Landesberg was suspended for the remainder of the season for academic reasons, a big blow for the already struggling Cavaliers, who have lost 10 of their last 12 games after a fast start in league play.

 

However, BC likely will need a better effort than Sunday, when NC State closed the game on a 20-5 run, turning a three-point deficit into a rout. Tracy Smith led the Wolfpack with 19 points and seven rebounds, both game highs. Rakim Sanders...
