Posted by Ace Staff on February 12th, 2009

Sports - North Carolina seniors Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green became the first teammates to attain a perfect 4-0 record against Coach K on his own court. After the game they walked off with four fingers held high in the air, representing their perfect win streak at the Cameron Indoor at Duke. Ty Lawson led the #3 ranked Tar Heels to beat the Duke Blue Devils (#5) 101-87, scoring 21 out of his season-high 25 points in the second half. Tyler Hansbrough scored 17 points as they put a stop to Duke’s 14-game win streak at home. This performance put Hansbrough at second on the all-time ACC scoring list with 2,604 points. Duke was leading at the half 52-44, but UNC pulled away late in the game with a 14-0 run. UNC coach Roy Williams told his boys “the streak is going to stop at some time; lets? just put it off for another year.” The Tar Heels responded and for that they are now in first place in the ACC. These powerhouse rivals are set to square off again March 8th at UNC. Both Duke and North Carolina will be seen as favorites in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

U2 To Play Letterman For 5 Nights

Posted by Ace Staff on February 12th, 2009

Concerts, Homepage -

To celebrate the release of their new album ‘No Line on the Horizon’, U2 will perform on the David Letterman Show for five straight nights from March 2 thru March 6.   There is no indication of what they might play but I hope they do at least one new song per night. Hearing new U2 material live is the best way to judge their songs.  It might be the only way to hear them live for the time being as U2 has not announced any plans for their 2009 tour. A U2 tour is inevitable but when it will come is anyone’s guess. Some recent rumors have U2 playing Fenway Park over the Summer while others think a Fall stop in Boston is more likely.  Wherever they wind up playing check back here for U2 news and U2 tickets.

Homepage, Sports - After losing their last two contests at home to the Lakers and Spurs, the Boston Celtics found a way to come together and defeat the Hornets 89-77 in New Orleans.  Paul Pierce led the C’s in scoring with 30 points, and Garnett added 14 points while pulling down 10 boards.  Eddie House chipped in with 12 points, scoring eight in the final period as he filled in well for Ray Allen, who missed the second half after hyperextending his thumb. Chris Paul returned last night after missing 4 games due to a right groin strain.  He finished with 13 points and five assists in his 32 minutes played.  David West and Hilton Armstrong scored 15 and 14 despite the Hornets coming up short. Last nights game marked the first of six straight road games against Western Conference teams for the C’s.  Ray Allen is due to come back tonight as the Celtics travel to Dallas to match up against the Mavericks at 9:30 p.m.  He will also be recognized as an All-Star due to the recent injury of Orlando’s Jameer Nelson.  Look for the Big 3 Sunday night as they represent the Eastern Conference in the 2009 All-Star game.

Sharks Late Rally Downs Bruins

Posted by Ace Staff on February 11th, 2009

Homepage, Sports - The two top teams in the NHL met up at the TD Banknorth Garden on Tuesday night. The Eastern-conference-leading Boston Bruins had 85 points, and the Sharks topped the West with 79. Milan Lucic had two goals in the first period to give the B’s a 2-1 lead for most of the game. Unfortunately for Boston, their solid game would fall apart in the third period. Boston was 0-4 on the power play, and sloppy play late in the game led to a four-goal third period for the Shark, including a 9:48 goal by former Bruin Joe Thornton. Shark left winger Ryane Clone took home the first star, with an outstanding 3 assists (including the game tying and game winning goals). Boston’s left winger Lucic’s two goals got him the second star. The Boston Bruins embark on a six-game road trip starting with a game against the Devils in NJ on Friday, Feburary 13th.

Sports -

With just 45 seconds to go in the 4th quarter of last night’s game, the Celtics held a one point lead. Boston’s costly mistakes and San Antonio’s stellar play led to 11 straight points to leave the game at a 105-99 final. Manu Ginobli’s steal off of Ray Allen’s inbound pass put the game out of reach.

“We’ve got a tough task in front of us, going on the road for the next couple of weeks, and we’ve got to make up some ground,” Celtics Captain Paul Pierce told Jimmy Golen of the AP. “We have our work cut out for us. This is a big road trip for us.”

The Celtics go to New Orleans to face the Hornets on February 11th.
