BC comeback falls just short vs. Carolina

Reggie Jackson rimmed out a potential game-winning 3-pointer with three seconds remaining and Boston College's late rally came up just short in a 48-46 loss to 19th-ranked North Carolina on Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C.


The Eagles trailed by 15 points in the second half before clawing back into the game and getting in position for a final chance to win. Jackson got the ball about 12 feet behind the 3-point line at the top with 10 seconds left. As the clock wound down, he put on a quick move and then pulled up for the shot, which bounced off the rim and out and was knocked out of bounds by BC with 0.3 left on the clock. UNC inbounded the ball to end the game.


Jackson and Joe Trapani each scored 13 points for BC, which fell to 16-10 overall and 6-6 in league play.


Tyler Zeller had 16 points and nine rebounds for UNC (20-6, 10-2). Kendall Marshall contributed 10 points and seven assists, and John Henson...

Lucchino: Sox have money for deadline deals

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Despite the addition of big-ticket stars Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford, Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said Saturday the team still has financial flexibility to do so.


"We always have some amount," Lucchino said of a budget allowance for in-season deals. 


In two megadeals, the Red Sox commited $142 million over seven years to Carl Crawford five days after sending blue chip prospects Anthony Rizzo, Casey Kelly and Reymond Fuentes (minors) and Eric Patterson to San Diego for Adrian Gonzalez. The Red Sox are said to be on the verge of a $164 million extension with Gonzalez over seven years. J.D. Drew is in the final season of a five-year, $70 million contract. 


"I think it shows a kind of versatility on the part of the club to be able to act when the opportunity presents itself and the needs are there. I credit Theo and his staff for being as agile and...

Henry: Red Sox not 'clear favorite'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- With expectations and predictions of the franchise's first 100-win season since 1946 and an third World Series title in eight seasons, Red Sox principal owner John Henry said the team has lots of work ahead to just make the playoffs. 


"I don't see us as a clear favorite," Henry said when asked of the Yankees. "I see the teams as fairly evenly matched. We've got our work cut out for us to hopefully win the division."


"I feel the same way," added Red Sox president Larry Lucchino. "There are other teams that are improving in this division. This is just not a mano-a-mano, two-team match. We've got other teams that are building a solid team and are making substantial commitments to those teams. The American League East will still be the rough-and-tumble American League East. Let's make no mistake about that."


Henry was joined by Red Sox...

J.D. Drew: Left hammy is 'much better'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Two weeks after saying the chronic soreness in his left hamstring was lingering, J.D. Drew reported Saturday that the muscle feels "much better" and is ready to take part in spring training.


"It's much better over the last couple of weeks so hopefully, no issues there so hopefully we can go through camp with no problem. It was a long process through the offseason trying to get that thing better but it seems to have finally turned the corner. It was a matter of just trying to get that thing to give way and we tried a bunch of different stuff but I think the strength and exercises and the stretching and stuff like that hopefully has paid off."


Drew told's Rob Bradford on Feb. 7 the problem area was just above his hamstring and below his gluteus muscle, an area that hasn't been able to receive enough blood-flow to promote the healing process. On Saturday, he said it's...
