Curry paces Harvard in win over Yale

Brandyn Curry scored 18 points and Harvard completed a season sweep of Yale with a 66-51 victory Saturday night at Lavietes Pavilion.

Keith Wright contributed 10 points and eight rebounds for the Crimson (23-3, 9-1 Ivy League), who won their 27th consecutive home game -- the second-longest streak in the nation.

Greg Mangano, who leads the league in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, had 22 points and 11 rebounds for Yale (17-7, 7-3).

The last time these teams met, Feb. 27 in New Haven, Harvard cruised to a 30-point victory. So when Mangano started the game by stuffing Keith Wright and then hitting a jumper at the other end, the Bulldogs were fired up.

However, Harvard quickly responded, taking a 14-point lead midway through the period helped by eight points from McNally. A baseline runner by Curry with four minutes left in the half pushed the lead to 20 at 35-15. Yale then closed the period on an 11-0 run, capped by...

Papelbon: Sox 'won't lay down' after collapse

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The man who threw the final pitch of the biggest pennant stretch collapse in baseball history says the Red Sox won't be affected this season. As a matter of fact, Jonathan Papelbon said he expects his former team to come out stronger than ever this season to prove a point.

"They'll be motivated, no question about it," Papelbon said in his first spring training press conference Saturday with the Phillies. "There's too many good guys in that clubhouse and too many competitors and too many guys who have too much pride to just lay down and say, 'we can just come lay down.' Those guys aren't going to come into this season and just lay down. They're going to work hard. There's no doubt about it.

"I don't think it was a matter of being surprised or not surprised. I know everybody has had their own opinion about that situation and what went on there. But nobody truly knows what was truly going on. I don't even truly...

Papelbon on Bard: 'No reason he can't start'

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The former closer of the Red Sox believes his former set up man can make a smooth transition to a starter's role. Jonathan Papelbon revealed that he has been in touch with Daniel Bard this winter about how to make the transition to a starter that the Red Sox are preparing for him. 

"I had a long talk with Daniel this offseason about that," Papelbon said during a 23-minute press conference with Boston and Philadelphia reporters as Phillies pitchers and catchers prepare to report this weekend. "I'm excited to see what he can do. I think Daniel has a phenomenal, phenomenal career ahead of him. In my opinion, there's no reason he can't start. Daniel can do whatever he wants to do. He's that good. He's matured into a phenomenal pitcher. He's only to get better. The sky's the limit for him. It truly really is. He can really go out there and do anything he sets his mind to."

Bard served as Papelbon's set-...

Patriots lose TE coach Ferentz to Iowa

Brian Ferentz, who served as the Patriots tight ends coach in 2011 and spent the last four seasons in the New England organization, has decided to take a new position as the offensive line coach at the University of Iowa, working for his father Kirk.

Brian Ferentz started with the Patriots as a coaching assistant in 2008, moved to offensive coaching assistant the following year and became an offensive assistant in 2010. He was officially promoted to tight ends coach at the start of the 2011 season, and has helped youngsters Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez become two of the best young tight ends in the game.

Ferentz joins the Iowa staff, which is run by his father Kirk, a former Belichick assistant. Brian’s roots run deep at Iowa: he was a three-year Hawkeye letterman, playing both offensive guard and center. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a senior in 2005, and was academic All-Big Ten in 2003.

Wheeler, Jets beat Bruins in Winnipeg
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins began life without Rich Peverley in an ironic way, as the man they traded to acquire him helped hand them a 4-2 loss Friday night in Winnipeg.

Former Bruin Blake Wheeler had three points for the Jets, scoring in the second period and assisting a pair of Bryan Little goals in the third period.

After a scoreless first period, the Jets took the lead early in the second period on Alex Burmistrov's 12th goal of the season. Jordan Caron scored his third goal of the season minutes later to tie the game, but the Jets would head into the second intermission with the lead thanks to a goal from Wheeler shortly after a Bruins power play.

David Krejci tied the game once again 49 seconds into the third period, but Little scored two goals in 2:04 to give the Jets a two-goal lead.

Tuukka Rask took the loss for the Bruins and is now winless in his last five starts (0-4-1). Friday night also marked the Finnish goaltender's second loss in...
