You may recall Kevin Garnett’s comments last week about Thunder star Kevin Durant getting foul calls like he was “Michael [expletive] Jordan” in Oklahoma City’s win over the Celtics. On Tuesday night, Durant did not get the benefit of the doubt on a 3-point attempt at the buzzer in a memorable 140-139 overtime loss at Utah, and he was none too pleased. We've got video of that, plus a clip of Raptors star Chris Bosh getting hit with an elbow that broke a bone in his face. And we look at the fuss over CBS' NCAA tournament "One Shining Moment" Monday night and one person's attempt to remedy the situation by dubbing in Luther Vandross for Jennifer Hudson. It's all at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.
With the tying run on second and no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning on Tuesday, the Yankees summoned lefty specialist Damaso Marte to face David Ortiz. Ortiz was 2-for-14 with three walks (including one on Sunday) against Marte. Ortiz stayed in to hit against Marte, and his fly to center was too shallow to advance the runner.
Should Ortiz have been left in to face the left-handed Marte, or should the Sox have turned to the right-handed Mike Lowell to pinch-hit for him? To vote, click here.
Former Harvard basketball coach Frank Sullivan spoke glowingly of Boston College's new hire, Steve Donahue, who is set to be introduced at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. Sullivan, who guided Harvard from 1991-2007, matched wits with Donahue when Donahue was an assistant at Penn (1990-2000) and the head coach at Cornell (2000-10).
“I think it’s a marvelous choice,” Sullivan said. “He’ll be honest, straightforward, candid — he’ll represent all the good values that have percolated in the recent success of [national finalist] Butler — and Cornell.
“He’s an excellent technical coach and he puts a high premium on the quality of the relationships with his players.”
