BOSTON (AP) — John Mooney scored 22 points with 12 rebounds, and T.J. Gibbs flipped in the game-winner with 0.1 seconds left to help Notre Dame beat Boston College 62-61 in an Ash Wednesday matchup of the longtime Catholic school rivals. BC led by as many as 10 points in the first half and had the lead with 8 seconds remaining.

Steffon Mitchell had 12 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for BC.
UNDATED (AP) — The NFL moved closer to labor peace for another decade early Wednesday as player representatives voted to send a new deal already approved by the owners to the full union membership. A simple majority of some 2,000 players must accept the agreement for it to go into effect this year. After nearly four hours of meetings between player reps and members of the NFL's negotiating committee Tuesday in Indianapolis, the 32 team reps spent several more hours discussing the deal that includes a 17-game season. They then gave the nod for all NFL Players Association members to make the final decision.
