Harvard suffers first Ivy loss at Princeton

Ian Hummer had 20 points and nine rebounds and Princeton continued its home mastery over Harvard, beating the 25th-ranked Crimson Saturday night, 70-62.

It was Princeton's 23rd consecutive home win over Harvard, a streak that began in 1990, and it ended with the fans storming the court to celebrate the school's first win over a ranked team at home since Jan. 3, 1977 (Notre Dame).

Keith Wright had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Harvard (21-3, 7-1 Ivy), which suffered its first league loss but remains in first place, a game ahead of Yale. Brandyn Curry added 15 points and Kyle Casey scored 12, although he missed three key free throws down the stretch.

T.J. Bray contributed 12 points for Princeton (13-10, 4-3).

Harvard had a five-point lead at the half, 27-22. Princeton caught up 4 1/2 minutes into Period 2, and the game stayed tight for the next 10 minutes. Bray put Princeton ahead to stay with 5:13 remaining on a jumper that made it 48-...

Bergeron, B's beat Predators in shootout
By: DJ Bean

Goals from Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron delivered the Bruins a 4-3 shootout victory over the Predators Saturday afternoon at TD Garden. 

Tim Thomas stopped both shots he saw in the shootout and improved to 4-0 in shootouts this season. 

Bergeron got the Bruins on the board at 16:00 of the first period with a shorthanded goal. The B's held their lead until Shea Weber beat Thomas with a slap shot from the point for a power play goal at 7:32 of the second period. Daniel Paille gave the Bruins the lead back when he slid a backhander past Pekka Rinne 2:55 into the third period, but Patric Hornqvist tied the game minutes later. The Predators took the lead on a Mike Fisher backhander with less than four minutes to go in regulation, but a power play goal from Milan Lucic with 67 seconds to play tied the game. 

The B's will host the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers Tuesday at TD Garden before embarking upon a six-game road trip...

Faulk: 'Crushed' by being inactive for SB

Patriots running back Kevin Faulk, in an interview on NESN, said that he was initially devastated when he was told by team running backs coach Ivan Fears on the morning of the game that he would be inactive for the Super Bowl.

"That morning, when I got the word that I wasn’t going to dress, wow," said Faulk. "I went in the room, cried a little bit, because 75 percent of me knew that this could be my last game playing, not playing, just dressing. If I dress there could possibly be that chance that I could play. So that really crushed me a whole lot."

That said, Faulk was able to reflect on the fact that longtime teammate Troy Brown was inactive for what proved to be his final game in Super Bowl XLII, and felt that he could follow in Brown's footsteps. By the time the game arrived, Faulk said that he was invested in his team's fortunes rather than dwelling on his own.

"Once the game started, it wasn't about...

Tired Celtics get beat in Toronto

The Celtics have not been that bad in back-to-backs this season. Coming into Friday's game against the Raptors, they had won four of six on the second night and each of the last three. However, all four of those wins had been at the Garden and their two losses -- at New Orleans and Indiana -- ranked as two of the worst losses of the season.

You can add Friday night's 86-74 loss in Toronto to the list as the Celtics looked not only old and tired, but disorganized and ineffective. They scored 14 points in the first quarter and 17 in the third quarter, which put the struggles squarely on the starters.

Rajon Rondo had his worst game of the season, shooting 2-for-10 with five turnovers and it wasn't just him. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen combined for just 18 points and the trio were outscored by their Toronto counterparts, 52-23.

The Celtics are back in action on Sunday against the Bulls at the Garden. They have lost three straight games to Chicago...

Casey, Miller lead Harvard past Penn

Kyle Casey and Corbin Miller scored 17 points apiece and 25th-ranked Harvard knocked off Pennsylvania on Friday night in Philadelphia, 56-50, to establish firm control of first place in the Ivy League.

Keith Wright grabbed 13 rebounds for the Crimson (21-2, 7-0 Ivy), who remain alone in first place and now own road victories over the two closest challengers in Penn and Yale, who both have two league losses (Yale lost Friday night in overtime at Cornell).

Zack Rosen led Penn (12-11, 4-2) with 16 points.

Miller, a freshman guard, came in averaging 3.4 points per game, but he hit 3-of-7 treys in recording a career high in points. He helped Harvard take a five-point lead at the half. Despite scoring just two points in the first 8:14 of the second half, the Crimson were tied at 30 when Miller hit a long trey for a lead they would not relinquish. Miller hit a jumper with 8:40 remaining to cap an 11-2 run. When he hit another 3-pointer just over a...
