Report: Skinner interviews with Clemson

According to a Boston Globe report, former Boston College basketball coach Al Skinner interviewed Thursday for the opening at Clemson. The job came open when Oliver Purnell left the Tigers to take the DePaul job. The other ACC opening is at Wake Forest, where Dino Gaudio was fired after three seasons with strong records but poor postseason results. Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel, who played at Duke, reportedly is a candidate for the both of those openings. Other names mentioned in speculation include Baylor's Scott Drew, Wright State's Brad Brownell, VCU's Shaka Smart, Winthrop's Gregg Marshall, Morgan State's Todd Bozeman, Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor, William and Mary’s Tony Shaver and Kansas assistant Joe Dooley.

Embree likely to opt out if not promoted

PAWTUCKET -- Alan Embree turned in a scoreless inning of work, throwing 10 pitches in which his fastball registered 90-94 mph, in an outing for the Triple-A PawSox. He allowed a walk and a long fly ball in his inning.

 

After the outing, Embree suggested that he likely will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract if he is not added to the Red Sox' major league roster by April 15.

 

“[The Sox] only have me until the 15th, so that is the timetable,” he said. “There are 29 other baseball teams out there that are probably looking for relief help. The goal is on the 15th to sit there and go, ‘OK, I am going to Boston.’ But if that is not the case I have to think about the rest of the season as well.”

Sabre rattling: B's win, on brink of playoffs

Embattled defenseman Dennis Wideman scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Tuukka Rask stopped 31-of-32 shots on the night as the Bruins took a big step toward the playoffs with a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night at TD Garden. Wideman heard boos throughout the first two periods after his turnover in the first period led to Derek Roy's goal with nine minutes left in the period. The Bruins tied the game on Miroslav Satan's tally 2:15 into the second before Wideman put the B's ahead on a shot from the right point that beat Patrick Lalime. Mark Recchi scored insurance with 3:25 left to put the Bruins up, 3-1. 

 

The win gives Boston 87 points and moves them ahead of Philadelphia and into seventh place in the East. The Bruins will clinch a playoff berth if Philadelphia beats the New York Rangers on Friday night in regulation.
