Report: Brady, McDaniels feud in '05

According to a story in Sunday's Denver Post about Broncos' coach Josh McDaniels, McDaniels and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady once went three weeks without speaking to each other in 2005. McDaniels, who was in his first season as New England's quarterbacks coach, would eventually go on to become the Patriots' offensive coordinator before taking the head coaching job with the Broncos before the start of the 2009 season.

Skinner still in running at St. John's

When Boston College coach Al Skinner interviewed with St. John's on Friday, he appeared to be the leading candidate for the job. Paul Hewitt already had turned it down, and Seth Greenberg renegotiated his deal with Virginia Tech and pulled out of the running.

 

However, since that time the rumors have been flying that the Red Storm are focusing on former UCLA coach Steve Lavin, who has been serving as a commentator for ESPN. Lavin went 145-78 in seven seasons at UCLA. He won 20 games each of his first six seasons and took his teams to four Sweet 16s and two Elite Eights. He was fired after his only losing season, in 2002-03.

 

St. John's also reportedly is interested in Siena's Fran McCaffery, who has been rumored as a leading candidate for the positions at Seton Hall and Iowa, and Temple's Fran Dunphy. Rhode Island's Jim Baron, whose team is in New York to play North Carolina on Tuesday in the NIT semifinals, is...

West Virginia to Final Four

For the first time in 51 years, the West Virginia Mountaineers advanced to the Final Four by upsetting No. 1 seed Kentucky, 73-66. West Virginia, a No. 2 seed, built a lead of 16 points with 4:25 left in the game before Kentucky began whittling the deficit. The Wildcats got the game to within four points with 25 seconds remaining, but the Mountaineers put the game away on free throws down the stretch.

 

Though the Mountaineers shot just 38.5 percent from the floor, they were 10-for-23 (43.5 percent) from 3-point range. West Virginia was led by Da'Sean Butler's 18 points and Joe Mazzulla's 17.

 

West Virginia's defense also took the Wildcats out of their game, holding Kentucky to 33.8 percent from the field and a 4-for-31 mark (12.8 percent) from behind the arc. John Wall's game-high 19 points were not enough to lead the John Calipari-coached Wildcats to Indianapolis.
