NEW ENGLAND SPORTS NEWS FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Josh Brown kicked a 37-yard field goal with 38 seconds to play and the New York Giants capped their first undefeated preseason since 2006 with a 16-13 victory over the New England Patriots last night. The win was a gift from Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who went for a first down with a fourth-and-1 from his 39 with less than three minutes to play and the score tied.

NORTON, Mass. (AP) - Phil Mickelson doesn't like that the FedEx Cup features four straight weeks of competition this year. The five-time major champion showed up at the Deutsche Bank Championship yesterday and didn't even warm up before his pro-am round on the TPC Boston.

NORTON, Mass. (AP) - Geoff Ogilvy missed the cut at The Barclays and planned to spend the next month out of golf, but a perfect series of events put him at Number 100 in the standings to get into the Deutsche Bank Championship. Ogilvy says everyone at the TPC Boston is still in the hunt for a $10 million playoff.

STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - In college football, Bryant's defense held off Stony Brook in a 13-7 victory in the season opener for both teams. Dalton Easton threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Chad Ward midway through the third quarter. Marquise Watson and Jeff Covitz each had 10 tackles to help the Bulldogs shut down Stony Brook's running game. Bryant had five sacks and held the Seawolves to 85 yards of net rushing.

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Bob Diaco says he's not nervous as he begins his first season as a collegiate head coach, just excited to see where his UConn team is fewer than nine months after he was hired to turn things around. The Huskies host perennial power BYU tonight.

UNDATED (AP) - Connecticut forward Chiney Ogwumike has been named the WNBA rookie of the year. She joins her sister Nneka, who won in 2012, as the first set of siblings to earn the honor in the league's history. Ogwumike was the Number 1 pick in the draft last April and averaged 15.5 points and 8.5 rebounds for the Sun this past season.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green is donating $1 million to Georgetown's new athletic center. The university announced the gift from the former Hoyas star yesterday on Green's 28th birthday. He helped lead Georgetown to the Final Four in 2007 and was the Number 5 overall pick in the NBA draft that year.
