Report: Ex-BC guard Heslip lands at Baylor

According to a tweet from The Recruit Scoop, Brady Heslip's former AAU coach, Ro Russell, said the 6-foot-2 guard has committed to Baylor. Heslip, who joined the BC program as a freshman in the middle of last season, decided to transfer after the Eagles fired coach Al Skinner and hired Steve Donahue. The Canadian sharpshooter visited Georgetown last week and also reportedly had a standing offer from Utah State.

 

Heslip is one of three players to transfer from BC this offseason, along with Evan Ravenel (Ohio State) and Rakim Sanders (Fairfield).

Avery Johnson on D&C: Pierce needs KO

Former NBA coach and current ABC/ESPN analyst Avery Johnson joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the NBA finals. Johnson said the Celtics need their offensive leader to return to form. "Paul needs to play like Paul Pierce," Johnson said. "With him guarding Ron Artest quite often and not Kobe [Bryant] as much as he did with LeBron James, you expect more offense out of Paul Pierce. This team has always been successful when he's been the leading scorer, when he's the guy. ... I think the key is, I haven't seen Paul Pierce with the type of aggressiveness and knockout-type of look in his eyes, where he's trying to knock a guy out. He's been jabbing, to take a boxing term, in this series, and he hasn't been trying to knock guys out with his scoring. For the Celtics' sake, we'll see if that changes."

 

Johnson was asked about Rajon Rondo appearing tired at times. Said Johnson: "It may be a...

Mashup: Pete Rose's corked bat controversy

Owners of game-used Pete Rose bats had them X-rayed, and the results appear to indicate that Rose corked his bats in his pursuit of baseball's all-time hits record in 1985. One columnist wants an asterisk next to Rose's name in the record book. Read more about that, plus check out stories on Stephen Strasburg's MLB debut, disharmony at New York Jets camp, and "The dark side of the UCLA basketball dynasty." It's all at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Doc: Fisher 'won the game for them'

Derek Fisher generally is the default fall guy for the Lakers when they lose, but in Game 3 of the NBA finals he made several big plays down the stretch that helped them take a 2-1 series lead with a 91-84 victory. "[He] won the game for them," Doc Rivers said. "Derek Fisher was the difference in the game." Rivers was most upset about a three-point play that Fisher was able to get late in the game that sealed the Lakers win. "All you need is a stop," Rivers said. "We let Derek Fisher dribble the ball all the way up the court, unattended, get a three-point play. If you get a stop there, we had two timeouts left. We had plenty of time."

Artest: Referees 'calling it fair'

Ron Artest spoke to the media after the Lakers' 91-84 Game 3 win over the Celtics and weighed in on the officiating to this point in the NBA finals.

 

"They are calling it tight on both ends, they're calling it fair," Artest said. "I thought they called it fair. In Game 2 I thought they called it fair. Sometimes you can be frustrated with referees, but it's a hard game to call. Both teams are complaining all the time, so something's got to be gone. But the refs just need to continue to ref the game the way that they have been refereeing it."
