Boston College coach Steve Donahue's first game against his old conference was one he'd prefer to forget, as the Eagles dropped a 75-67 decision to Yale at Conte Forum on Thursday night. It marks the third consecutive season BC has lost to an Ivy League team, following losses to Harvard the previous two years.
Austin Morgan led Yale with 25 points, hitting 6-of-9 from 3-point range. The Bulldogs shot an impressive 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from behind the arc (12-for-21).
Reggie Jackson tallied a career-high 30 points for BC, which had its second straight poor shooting night from 3-point range at 3-for-19. The Eagles are 7-for-40 on the season.
BC led only once in the game, at 2-1. The Eagles were down by five at the half, 30-25, and trailed by 16 points after Yale hit four 3-pointers in the first 4:48 of the second half. The margin was 12 points with 4:45 remaining before BC made a...
According to CSNNE.com, the Red Sox have received interest from a half-dozen clubs in shortstop Marco Scutaro. Scutaro signed a two-year, $12.5 million deal last offseason. He will make $5 million in 2011, with a $6 million club option that comes with a $1.5 million buyout, as well as a $3 million player option for the 2012 season. The report suggests that a number of teams -- including the Cardinals, Reds, Padres and Giants -- are in the shortstop market, and that the Sox would be open to moving Scutaro in exchange for bullpen help. In his place, the team could turn to Jed Lowrie at shortstop, with a possibility of having Jose Iglesias emerge sometime in mid- to late-2012.
Scutaro, in his first year in Boston, set a career high with 150 games despite dealing with injuries for much of the season. He hit .275 with a .333 OBP, .388 slugging mark, .721 OPS, 11 homers and 56 RBI, spending most of the season in the leadoff spot. Lowrie...
Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Thursday. Ainge was first asked about Greg Oden, who will will undergo microfracture surgery on his left knee Friday and miss the rest of the season. Oden -- the first pick of the 2007 NBA Draft -- has played in just 82 regular-season games in his career. Many thought that the Celtics would have selected Oden if they had landed the top pick in the 2007 draft lottery.
"I have never spent much time [thinking about Oden]," said Ainge, "I have spent time watching Kevin Durant play the last couple of years, wondering what would have been, because he's such a special player. But not much time, no. We're very grateful for how it all turned out."
Ainge was asked if, in fact, the Celtics had secured the top pick of that 2007 draft would they have picked Oden or Durant.
Jeff Van Gundy, who provides analysis for NBA games on ESPN and ABC, joined The Big Show Thursday to talk about the early-season struggles of the Miami Heat. It was Van Gundy in August who claimed that the Heat would have "a great chance" to break the 1996 Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins in a season. With the Heat at 7-4, Van Gundy is willing to reconsider his offseason prediction.
"Well, I'm gonna downscale my prediction due to the Mike Miller injury and some unforeseen losses, and I'm going to put them in the mid-60s [for wins] now," said Van Gundy. "I do believe Miami is going to figure it out, play better and better as the year goes on. Nothing troubles me like their statements. You had LeBron James come out a couple of games back and say 'I played too much.' I never, ever heard a great player say 'I played too much.' And Bosh after this great game last night, he says 'The coach wants us to work and we want to...
