Clifford, BC turn away Virginia Tech

Dennis Clifford scored 15 points and Boston College posted its second straight ACC victory with a 61-59 triumph over Virginia Tech Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum.

Matt Humphrey scored 14 points and Ryan Anderson added 10 for BC (7-10, 2-1 ACC).

Victor Davila scored 14 points for Virginia Tech (11-6, 0-3).

BC took a 29-27 lead into the break after Jordan Daniels scored the final five points of the half -- a 3-pointer and then a 14-footer at the buzzer. The Eagles never trailed in the second half, and they led by as much as 11 -- the first time at 56-45 with 4:34 left after an Anderson follow and the second time with 3:40 left after two Clifford free throws that made it 58-47.

The Hokies made a late run but failed to capitalize on three straight BC turnovers with a couple of minutes to play. They finally closed to within one possession on a 3-pointer with three-tenths of a second remaining but ran out of time.

BC next plays...

Harvard 15-2 after blowing out GW

Laurent Rivard and Steve Moundou-Missi scored 16 points apiece and Harvard used an 18-2 run at the end of the first half to take a 20-point halftime lead and coast to a 69-48 victory over George Washington in a nonleague game at sold-out Lavietes Pavilion Saturday afternoon.

Rivard hit 3-of-4 3-pointers and had a pair of four-point plays on the day, while Moundou-Missi hit all seven of his shots. Keith Wright added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Crimson (15-2), who are ranked 25th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

Tony Taylor, with 13 points, led the way for cold-shooting GW (6-11).

Harvard led 33-13 at the half after shooting 67 percent (12-of-18) to GW's 15 percent (3-for-20). The Crimson jumped out to a 15-4 lead, with six players recording at least two points in that stretch. After a brief letdown -- a span of almost five minutes in which Harvard turned over the ball four times and missed two shots while GW ran off seven straight...

Valentine says he has talked to Crawford

Speaking at the New Stars for Young Stars event at Jillian's -- which was presented by the Jimmy Fund Council of Greater Boston -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine confirmed that he has talked to outfielder Carl Crawford. The phone conversation took place with both Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and Crawford's agent, Brian Peters, on the line, according to Valentine.

"I finally got that call into Carl," the manager said. "Carl sounded great.

"He seemed very determined. He seemed very understanding of the fact that things got spinning a little fast for him last year in a new environment. He seemed to be determined to correct that."

Valentine had first mentioned that he was having difficulty arranging a meeting with Crawford while talking at the winter meetings in early December. He did, however,...

Doc: 'I'd rather have [adversity] now'

Attempting to put a positive spin on his team's second three-game losing streak of the season, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said his team's success will hinge on how they react to a 4-6 start to a shortened 66-game season. The Celtics were ice cold again on Friday night in the first half and couldn't completely recover from a 19-point halftime deficit, losing to the 11-2 Bulls, 88-79, at TD Garden. 

“It’s been frustrating, it’s been frustrating," Rivers admitted. "But listen, I’d rather have it now. You’re going to go through adversity or stuff; I’d rather have it right now. Like I told our guys, I said, ‘If you get through this, it’ll make you a hell of a basketball team.’ And I always use the word ‘if’ because you have to. You have to fight through it. And I love what I saw in the second half.

"My question to them: Why, why did it take so long? You know? It...

Out of gas: Rose stops rally, C's lose

Reigning league MVP Derrick Rose scored 25 points and stopped a Celtics rally by himself as the Bulls beat Boston, 88-79, Friday night at TD Garden, handing the Celtics their third straight loss. Luol Deng added 21 points and hauled in 16 rebounds as the Bulls improved to an NBA-best 11-2 while the Celtics fell to 4-6. Rajon Rondo fell just three rebounds shy of a triple-double with 14 points, 11 assists and seven assists. 

The Celtics were manhandled again on the glass, outrebounded, 46-34, and outscored, 24-14, in second-chance points. 

In a troubling trend, the Celtics were overwhelmed to start the game. The Celtics were ice cold in the first half, making just five of their first 26 shots, falling behind, 52-33 at the half. The Celtics shot just 13-of-39 from the field in the first 24 minutes. Boston has managed just 25, 41 and 33 points in the first half of their last three games, all coming at home. 

As he has all season...
