College roundup: Bussey provides a boost for Maine

From staff and news services

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Shane Bussey had three hits, including his first career home run, and three RBI to lead the University of Maine to a 9-7 baseball victory over Boston College.

Colin Gay, Alex Calbick and Eric White each drove in two runs as the Black Bears (32-19) built a 7-0 lead in the first six innings.

The Eagles (11-38) cut it to 7-4 going into the ninth, but Maine got some insurance on Bussey's two-run shot.


KANSAS: Top prospect Andrew Wiggins signed a letter of intent with the Jayhawks Tuesday afternoon in Huntington, W.Va. He previously narrowed his choices to Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State.

The Canadian star averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds this season for Huntington Prep.


The University of Alaska Anchorage is investigating an allegation that its former hockey coach struck a player with a hockey stick, another black mark for the beleaguered program, which suspended a search for a new coach after naming four finalists earlier this month.

Ex-player Mickey Spencer alleges in an email dated May 1 to university officials that Dave Shyiak hit another player, Nick Haddad, with a hockey stick during a 2011 practice.
