Sports in a Minute: Methuen teacher proud alum of UConn hoops

(Continued)

Hunt, a graduate of St. John’s Prep, copped the honor two weeks earlier in a seven-inning, three-hit outing in a win over Niagara.

Boston at White House

Tuesday’s visit to the White House by the Boston Red Sox was the eighth for a Boston-area team since 2000, more than any other metro area in the USA. It was Boston’s MLB-leading third White House visit in that time.

Da Costa season ends

Former Merrimack College star Stephane Da Costa had his season end in a frightening way earlier this week for the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League when he took a stick to the face, shattering his nose and sending blood everywhere.

A reporter from New York e-mailed a local reporter and said it reminded him of the brutal Clint Malarchuk injury when the ex-Sabres goalie had his neck sliced by a skate blade, with blood gushing everywhere.

Da Costa is expected to make a full recovery.

Johnny Hockey honored

Boston College hockey superstar Johnny Gaudreau won his fourth Hockey East Player the Month honor this season. The highlight of his 14-point month came in the opening day of the NCAA Regionals in Worcester where he scored three goals and assisted on three others in the 6-2 win over Denver.

Gaudreau, who leads the NCAA in scoring (35-42-77), saw his league-tying 31-game point streak end in the Hockey East quarterfinals. He is expected to take home college hockey’s top honor, the Hobey Baker Award, while in Philadelphia the weekend after next for the Frozen Four.

Mom couldn’t wait

As the drama of Sunday’s Kentucky-Michigan game reached its climax, Julius Randle’s mother, Carolyn Kyles, was riding to the Indianapolis airport. She was in contact with someone at the game who updated her on the action via cellphone on the ride, at the ticket counter and through security screening.
