Allen (ankle) out vs. Bobcats, probable vs. Jazz


Allen (ankle) out vs. Bobcats, probable vs. Jazz

CHARLOTTE, N.C. The status of Mickael Pietrus' return from a concussion suffered last week remains up in the air. But Celtics coach Doc Rivers anticipates having Ray Allen (ankle) back for Wednesday's game against Utah.

Allen had initially sprained his ankle against the Los Angeles Clippers on March 12, and apparently re-aggravated it against Philadelphia on March 23. The injury kept Allen out of Sunday's 88-76 win over Washington.

Filling in for Allen against the Wizards was Avery Bradley, who had a career-high 23 points in the victory. Bradley will once again get the starting nod for the C's (26-22) who can move into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division with Philadelphia if they can beat the Bobcats tonight.

However, if the two finished with an identical record atop the Atlantic Division, the Sixers would get the higher seed by virtue of them winning the first two matchups. And with the two teams only playing one more time this season (April 8 in Boston), the Sixers have already won the head-to-head matchup.

Yale beats Harvard 24-3 in 'The Game'


Yale beats Harvard 24-3 in 'The Game'

Kurt Rawlings threw for 177 yards and a touchdown to lead Yale over rival Harvard 24-3 on Saturday at Yale Bowl in New Haven, Conn., securing the Bulldogs' first outright Ivy League championship in 37 years.

Yale beat its rival for the second year in a row, this time capping a 9-1 season (6-1 in the Ivy League) and running its all-time record in the series known as "The Game" to 67-59-8. It's the first time the Bulldogs have won two in a row in the rivalry since a three-year winning streak from 1998-2000. Yale went 3-7 last season.

Yale's defense held Harvard (5-5, 3-4 Ivy) to 164 total yards, sacked Harvard QB Jake Smith six times and forced four Crimson turnovers, including a fumble that was returned 19 yards for a touchdown by the Bulldogs' Malcolm Dixon.
