By Marisa Ingemi | [email protected] | Boston HeraldPUBLISHED: February 20, 2019 at 6:20 pm | UPDATED: February 20, 2019 at 6:49 pm LAS VEGAS — The Bruins have made a move as the trade deadline looms. According to multiple reports, the Bruins acquired Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle on Wednesday. Per those reports, it’s for Ryan Donato and a fifth-round pick. Coyle, 26, was told not to board the team’s plane to New York in the morning, according to The Athletic. He has been the subject of trade rumors and has been connected to Boston since the beginning of the season. The Boston University alum — who would be the fourth in the Bruins organization — has 10 goals and 18 assists in 60 games played for the Wild this season. Those 28 points are tied with Jake DeBrusk for the sixth-most points on the Bruins, and he would have the sixth-most goals, as well. A Weymouth native, Coyle’s career-high in points is 56 in 2016-17, and he had … [Read more...] about Bruins to acquire Charlie Coyle

The students say the ban on durags exists because administrators believe they’re associated with gangs. But for the students, the head coverings are an important part of black culture often used to preserve a hairstyle known as waves.

By Joey Kaufman | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: February 20, 2019 at 3:29 pm | UPDATED: February 20, 2019 at 3:30 pm LOS ANGELES — The presence of Deandre Ayton squashed much of the suspense of last season’s race for the Pac-12 player of the year. Ayton, the towering 7-foot-1 center, led Arizona to the conference regular-season championship in his one season in college, before becoming the first overall pick in the NBA draft in June. No Pac-12 player – literally and figuratively – measured up. This season’s jockeying for the award lacks a similar frontrunner, and there are fewer household names in contention. UCLA guard Aaron Holiday also followed Ayton to the NBA. Amid the more wide-open field, USC forwards Bennie Boatwright and Nick Rakocevic present intriguing cases for the coaches who will vote for the Pac-12’s player of the year next month. With three weeks left in the regular season, Boatwright ranked third … [Read more...] about Can USC’s Boatwright and Rakocevic vie for Pac-12 player of year?
