New England Sports News From The Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Celtics beat the Brooklyn Nets 100-86 last night in the final preseason game for both teams. Rookie Marcus Smart scored 16 points and Jared Sullinger had 15 with 17 rebounds. Gerald Wallace added 12 points for Boston, which finished the preseason 5-3 with its second straight win over Brooklyn.
NEW YORK (AP) - NBA owners have voted down proposed changes to the league's draft lottery system. The proposal was defeated yesterday at the league's board of governors meetings. It was a somewhat surprising turn of events after it appeared there was support for reforms that would make it more difficult for teams with the worst records to secure the top pick in the draft. The vote means the existing system will remain in place for now.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have signed tight end Richard Gordon, filling the roster spot freed up by trading linebacker Akeem Ayers to the New England Patriots. The Titans announced the moves yesterday, saying only that Ayers was traded for a future draft selection.
GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - In college football, 18th-ranked East Carolina is off to its best start in 15 years, has settled into its first national ranking since 2008 and has a prime-time audience for their latest high-scoring show when Connecticut visits tonight. The Pirates haven't started 6-1 since 1999. A win will make them bowl eligible for the eighth time in nine years. Standing in their way is four-touchdown-underdog UConn.
BOSTON (AP) - Six Boston-area college basketball teams are coming back to the TD Garden for the Coaches vs. Cancer tripleheader. The three November 16th games will feature Boston College vs. UMass, Harvard vs. Holy Cross and Northeastern vs. Boston University. It's the second year of the event at the Celtics' home.
BOSTON (AP) - According to a Harvard University study, colleges remain inconsistent in the way they handle athletes' concussions. The study comes more than four years after the NCAA began requiring schools to educate their players about the risks of head trauma and develop plans to keep injured athletes off the field.
