Bobby Cremins took himself out of the running for Notre Dame's vacated basketball coaching job Monday, deciding instead to remain at Georgia Tech. Although he acknowledged the Irish job was tempting, Cremins said, "My feeling for my players and the Georgia Tech family and friends was too strong for me to pursue any other interests.

Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe writing on the once proud but now struggling Boston Celtics: "The Celtics have been bad before, but they've never before been this myopic in the front office. They live in a constant state of denial. They still think they are, you know, the CELTICS. The rest of the basketball world views them as the celtics. "They are the Ottoman Empire, circa 1914, a once-great regime in the final stages of collapse. Don't call the medic. Call the coroner."

"They drew the play up for somebody else and I was supposed to take it out but I didn't want to take it out," Mabika said.
