     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williston State College hockey team has secured a third straight trip to the National Junior College Athletic Association Frozen Four.  The Tetons skated to a 6-1 win over Dakota College at Bottineau on Tuesday night to win the Region 13 tournament.
     The NJCAA Frozen Four is at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, N.Y., Feb. 22-23. The Tetons are trying to defend the national championship they won last year. WSC lost in the title game the previous year.


     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kevin Love started practicing early for All-Star weekend, making six of 11 shots from 3-point range and totaling 32 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 117-90 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.  Love, chosen as a first-time starter for the Western Conference team, will also take part in the 3-point shooting contest this weekend in New Orleans.
     In five February games, Love has averaged 32.6 points. He sat out twice last week, once because of a stiff neck and again with a bruised left quadriceps, but his banged-up body hasn't hindered his production when he is on the court.
     Injuries have affected the Nuggets all season. Ty Lawson, Nate Robinson, Danilo Gallinari and JaVale McGee are hurt, and Andre Miller is on leave from the team because of a strained relationship.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has returned to the team for the final game before the NBA All-Star break.  Adelman said Wednesday before the Timberwolves hosted Denver that his wife, Mary Kay, had "a little problem" that he had to tend to. Adelman declined to be more specific but said the situation was "fine." She has suffered from seizures in the past, and Adelman missed 11 games last season to be with her during a particularly difficult stretch.  Adelman missed the game Monday night against Houston and practice Tuesday.
     The Wolves have six days between games. They host Indiana next Wednesday night after the break.

     UNDATED (AP) - Monta Ellis had 23 points and nine rebounds, and Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points as the Dallas Mavericks handed the Indiana Pacers their third home loss of the season, 81-73.  The Mavericks have won six of seven. They head into this weekend's All-Star break with a record of 32-22.
     In other NBA action:
     - LeBron James let the time tick down before carrying the Miami Heat into the All-Star break in a way only he could. James capped one of his best games of the season in dramatic fashion, making a step-back 3-pointer with less than a second remaining to propel the Heat past the Golden State Warriors 111-110. James finished with 36 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists.
     - Blake Griffin scored 36 points, Chris Paul had 20 points and 12 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Portland Trail Blazers. The Clippers converted 16 Portland turnovers into 20 points during a back-and-forth game that included 40 lead changes.
     - Tim Duncan scored 23 of his 25 points in the second half, powering the injury-depleted San Antonio Spurs to a 104-92 win over the Boston Celtics. The Spurs were without guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili and forward Tiago Splitter - all out with injuries.
     - Atlantic Division-leading Toronto bopped Atlanta 104-83. DeMar DeRozan scored 31 points as the Raptors ended a five-game home losing streak to Atlanta dating to 2010.  Kyle Lowry had 16 points and 13 assists.
     - Rudy Gay made the tying basket in regulation and a 3-pointer in overtime that gave Sacramento the lead for good, and Jimmer Fredette scored a career-high 24 points to help the Kings beat the New York Knicks 106-101.
     - James Harden made a layup with seven-tenths of a second left and Houston nipped Washington 113-112. Harden also made a free throw with four seconds left. Harden finished with 35 points and added six rebounds and six assists. Trevor Ariza led Washington with 32.
     - Kyrie Irving's 3-pointer as the shot clock expired with 27.2 seconds remaining lifted the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 93-89 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Cleveland has won four straight and snapped the Pistons' three-game winning streak.
     - New Orleans edged Milwaukee 102-98. Brian Roberts led seven Pelicans in double figures with 17.
     - Zach Randolph had 20 points, Courtney Lee added 17 and the Memphis Grizzlies held off the Orlando Magic 86-81.
     - The Brooklyn Nets trounced Charlotte 105-89. Paul Pierce led all scorers with 25 on nine of 11 shooting for the Nets.
     - Utah topped Philadelphia 105-100. Alex Burks led the Jazz with 26.

     UNDATED (AP) - They trailed most of the night, had trouble scoring against a pumped-up defense but after the buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read: Syracuse 58, Pittsburgh 56. The top-ranked Orange were still undefeated at 24-0 -- thanks to Tyler Ennis.
     The freshman guard canned a 35-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer for the winning shot. Earlier, he had calmly made two free throws to aid the Syracuse comeback. He finished with 13 points, one fewer than Syracuse high-scorer C.J. Fair.  The victory keeps Syracuse one of two undefeated Division I men's teams, along with Wichita State.
     In other AP Top-25 hoops:
     - Sixth-ranked Villanova steamrolled DePaul 87-62. Darrun Hilliard scored 22 points. JayVaughn Pinkston had 14 points and 11 rebounds as 22-2 'Nova won its sixth in a row.
     - Andrew Harrison scored 16 points to help No. 14 Kentucky overcome shooting struggles and hold on for a 64-56 victory over Auburn. The Wildcats shot just 30.8 percent.
     - The 20th-ranked Memphis Tigers improved to 19-5 by beating Central Florida 76-70. Joe Jackson led the Tigers with 18.
     - No. 24 UConn mauled South Florida 83-40. The Huskies are 19-5. DeAndre Daniels scored 12 points to lead a balanced UConn offense.

     UNDATED (AP) - New York Yankees stalwart Derek Jeter says he'll retire at the end of the upcoming season, ending a stellar 20-year major league career. The 39-year old is a 13-time All-Star who was a key cog in the Yankees five World Series titles during his stay.
     Jeter has battled injuries recently, being limited to just 17 games last season trying to come back from a broken ankle he suffered in the 2012 playoffs.  Jeter is the Yankees' career hits leader with 3,316. He is a lifetime .312 hitter in 19 seasons, with 256 home runs and 1,261 RBIs.
     In other baseball news as pitchers and catchers begin reporting for spring training:
     - It looks like A.J. Burnett will be pitching for Philadelphia this season. A person familiar with the deal says Burnett, who was 10-11 with the Pirates last season, has agreed to a one-year contract.
     The move comes on the day that Phillies ace Cole Hamels said that he won't be able to make his opening day start because of discomfort he felt in his pitching arm during the offseason. Hamels says he isn't feeling any pain or discomfort now but that he is eight to 10 days behind the rest of the pitchers in camp.
     - The Kansas City Royals and All-Star closer Greg Holland have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a contract. The one-year deal is worth $4.675 million. He had a 1.21 earned run average and 47 saves last season.
     - The Arizona Diamondbacks have confirmed the signing of free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo. It had been reported that the two sides had agreed to a two-year, $23.5 million deal.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Americans swept the men's slopestyle skiing event at the Winter Olympics. Joss Christensen of Park City, Utah, grabbed the gold with a score of 95.80 to beat teammates Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper.  The sweep is just the third for the U.S. in Winter Olympic history, joining men's figure skating in 1956 and men's halfpipe in 2002.  All four of Christensen's runs were scored in the 90's.  After achieving the sweep Christensen, who was the last skier named to the U.S. slopestyle team, told reporters, "America, we did it."  Conditions for the race were so warm that fellow American Bobby Brown, who finished ninth, competed his final run in short sleeves.
     - The U.S. men's hockey team is playing its first game of the Olympic hockey tournament with a contest against Slovakia. The Americans lead 7-1 in the second period. Arch-rival Canada is facing the club from Norway in its opening game today.
     - In a hockey note, Teemu Selanne of Finland was forced to leave his country's opening game against Austria with an upper-body injury. He is the oldest player in the tournament and plays in the NHL for the Anaheim Ducks.
     - American Noelle Pikus-Pace is in good position to medal in Friday's final of women's skeleton. After today's first two runs, she trails Britain's Lizzy Yarnold by just 0.44 seconds. This event marks the last time Pikus-Pace will compete before retirement.
     - Olympic officials in Sochi continue to say they are not concerned about the warm weather at the Olympics. The forecast calls for a temperature today in the mid-60's.
     - The U.S. now has 12 medals overall, four gold, two silver and six bronze. Norway continues to be the overall leader with 13 medals.
