Details emerge in UVa lax player's death

Police in Charlottesville, Va., said Wednesday that they looked in the apartment of University of Virginia senior George Huguely and found a crimson-stained Cavaliers lacrosse jersey and a letter to the woman Huguely is accused of beating to death, a senior on UVa's women's team. Meanwhile, a memorial for the slain student, Yeardley Love, was held Wednesday night on the UVa campus.

 

Love's roommate and the roommate's boyfriend found her battered body early Monday. Police have said Huguely and Love were once involved in a relationship, but that it had ended. According to a search warrant affidavit, Huguely admitted kicking in Love's bedroom door and said her head hit a wall several times as he shook her. His attorney, Francis Lawrence, called Love's death an accident.

Rivers on D&C: Garnett, Perk OK for Friday

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and provided an update on the status of injured big men Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins. Rivers said Garnett isn't likely to practice Thursday so he can rest his foot and ankle, but he shouldn't miss any game action. "I do think he'll play on Friday, and I think he'll be OK," Rivers said. "Perk will be fine. Kevin's the only concern."

 

Rivers was asked about Garnett's shower room pep talk that inspired Rasheed Wallace to turn in his best performance of the playoffs in Monday's Game 2 rout of the Cavaliers. Said Rivers: "We were joking yesterday, maybe it was the 'Hot Tub Time Machine.' Whatever works, works. Rasheed was huge for us. We don't win that game without his performance."

 

Paul Pierce has been kept in check through the first two games, and Rivers said the Celtics need him to...

Celtics recap: Injury concerns arise

Coming off an impressive performance in a Game 2 rout of the Cavaliers, the Celtics suddenly have some new concerns. Mainly, the healthy of Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins, both of whom missed practice Wednesday. Garnett has a right mid-foot sprain while Perkins has a hyperextended right knee. Garnett's injury is the one that appears to be more serious. "Honestly, [Wednesday], if we had a game I don’t think he could have played," coach Doc Rivers said. "We just have to wait. I doubt if he’ll practice [Thursday]. We’ll see. Perk we think will be all right. I don’t know if he can practice [Thursday] either." However, Perkins sounded confident both players will make an appearance in Friday's Game 3. "I’ll be ready for Friday," Perkins said. "Hopefully I can practice [Thursday]. Kevin wanted to practice. He was mad that Doc wanted him to sit out. He’ll play."
