Schefter: Pats' options 'limited'

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about NFL free agency. Schefter said the Patriots still are in position to retain defensive back Leigh Bodden if they are willing to make the commitment. "They're still in the picture," he said. "It will come down to Houston or New England, and I would imagine we'll get an answer here in relatively short order, although last year Leigh Bodden dragged his feet in free agency, so perhaps he does it again this year."

 

Schefter said New England is not a likely landing spot for Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall. "I have not heard Brandon Marshall's name mentioned in New England," Schefter said, noting that the Patriots already have committed a lot of money to re-sign players on their roster, with Tom Brady likely to get a new deal as well this offseason. This leaves the draft as the main source of...

Mashup: Study shows refs' bias

Bodden: 'It's all about who wants me'

Free agent cornerback Leigh Bodden touched down in Houston Sunday night for a meeting with the Texans, and had plenty to say. Fox 26 TV in Houston was the first to chase him down, and he appeared excited about the possibility of being wooed by the Texans.

“I think it’s great having a team like the Houston Texans being interested in me,” Bodden said in an interview at Houston’s Hobby Airport. “I’m just going to go here, meet the coaches, and hopefully everything goes good.”

Bodden called the free agency process “kind of nerve-wracking,” but added that, “it is what it is. It’s part of the business. ... Hopefully I can get things done with the Texans and just move on.”

Bodden, who said he had other visits planned, also talked a little about the Patriots, saying he hasn’t closed the door on a potential return to New England.

“I had...

Late Wizardry: C's escape with win

Ray Allen hit consecutive 3-point field goals in the final two minutes, including the go-ahead trey with 17.1 seconds remaining, as the Celtics survived the lowly Washington Wizards, 86-83, on Sunday night at TD Garden. The Celtics won their fourth straight, their longest streak since winning 11 straight from Nov. 22-Dec. 14. Trailing by 13 with just over six minutes remaining, the Celtics put on a late charge. They scored 10 straight to cut it to a three-point game with 2:57 remaining. Rajon Rondo then converted a layup and Allen drained a 3-pointer to put Boston up, 82-81, 1:33 remaining, capping a 16-2 run. Allen finished with a game-high 25 points and was 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. The Celtics play in Milwaukee on Tuesday before returning home for a game against Memphis on Wednesday.

BU advances to America East final

There will be at least one New England team in the NCAA tournament this year.

 

Corey Lowe scored 24 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 4:33 remaining, and fourth-seeded Boston University knocked off top-seeded Stony Brook, 70-63, in the semifinals of the America East tournament Sunday night in Hartford.

 

With its first win over Stony Brook in three tries this season, BU (19-12) advances to play at Vermont Saturday at noon for a berth in the NCAA tournament. It marks the Terriers' first appearance in the title game since 2003. They last made the NCAA tournament in 2002.

 

BU used a 15-0 run late in the first half to build a 16-point cushion, and the Terriers took a 37-24 lead into the locker room. But Stony Brook (22-9) fought back and had a 56-52 lead with five minutes remaining before Lowe sparked a game-deciding 9-0 run.

 

Lowe also had five steals for BU, while...
