College basketball | A look at how the preseason has fared for Cooley, Friars

November 1, 2014

Three-fifths of the lineup appears set with LaDontae Henton, Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris making up the frontcourt. Based on Cooley’s optimism with regards to Kris Dunn’s quest to ramp up to game speed after a lengthy layoff, it’s appears safe to mention the redshirt sophomore in a starting capacity.

College football | All systems go for Lincoln's Saine to join Boston College

October 28, 2014

LINCOLN -- The euphoria that surrounded Oseh Lie-Saine signing a National Letter of Intent with Boston College’s football program last February eventually gave way to the understanding that some unfinished business remained.

The former Lincoln High standout needed to bump up his SAT score in order to meet the necessary NCAA eligibility requirements to suit up for the Eagles. Though he proved unable to reach the desired test figure before the start of the 2014 college football season, Saine never gave up hope.
