FAU’s Jarvis, former BU coach, resigns
Florida Atlantic’s Mike Jarvis will resign at the end of the season, his 25th as a head coach and his sixth with the Owls. In a statement Friday, the 68-year-old said he wants to pursue other basketball opportunities. He had one year left on his deal. A Cambridge native, Jarvis coached Patrick Ewing at Cambridge Rindge and Latin after assistant gigs at Northeastern and Harvard. He took Boston University, George Washington, and St. John’s to the NCAA Tournament, but the Owls (10-19, 5-9 Conference USA) had losing records in five of his six seasons . . . New Mexico State junior guard K.C. Ross-Miller was suspended two games and senior forward Renaldo Dixon will miss one for violating the Western Athletic Conference’s sportsmanship rules in a postgame brawl at Utah Valley. Ross-Miller hurled the ball at Utah Valley’s Holton Hunsaker after a victory Thursday. Some fans who stormed the court got caught in the chaos.
Clippers sign another vet in Granger
Forward Danny Granger signed with the Clippers, adding more veteran depth for the club’s playoff push. The former All-Star joined the Clippers after his contract was bought out by the 76ers, who acquired him in a trade with Indiana last week. Granger, who has struggled to regain form since missing most of last season and much of this season with injuries, is coach Doc Rivers’s second major free agent addition to the Clippers in the past week along with veteran Glen Davis . . . Caron Butler agreed to sign with Oklahoma City, according to a person close to the situation. The Bucks agreed to a buyout with the 33-year-old forward Thursday and waived him. Butler appeared in 34 games this season, averaging 11.0 points and 4.6 rebounds . . . The Pelicans said point guard Jrue Holiday had surgery for a stress fracture in his right tibia and will miss the rest of the season. Holiday, a former All-Star acquired from Philadelphia last summer, has not played since Jan. 8.
Full recovery unlikely for Schumacher
Nearly two months after Michael Schumacher suffered serious head injuries in a skiing accident and was placed in a drug-induced coma, some neurologists say the seven-time Formula One champion seems unlikely to make a full recovery. The 45-year-old fell while skiing in France and hit the side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Schumacher’s condition stabilized after he was placed in the coma. His agent, Sabine Kehm, said in an e-mail that ‘‘Michael is still in the wake-up phase’’ and ‘‘this phase can be long.’’
