    MINOT, ND (MSU) - Minot State University Senior Carly Boag has been named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference women's basketball Player of the Week following a record-setting weekend.

    Boag finished with a 33.5 points and 18 rebounds per game average in wins over the University of Sioux Falls and Southwest Minnesota State Friday and Saturday. On Saturday, she became Minot State's all-time leading scorer with 1,718 career points and also set a single-game record, scoring 39 against the Mustangs.

    She finished the weekend with 15 offensive rebounds total in two game and had nine steals, a block and an assist. This is the second time this season and the fifth time in two years Boag has been named the NSIC Player of the Week.

    Minot State finishes the regular season with an important road trip to Minnesota State University Moorhead and NSIC North Division leading Northern State Friday and Saturday. The Beavers are currently tied for second in the NSIC North and could finish as high as first and as low as fourth after this weekend.

    The Beavers wrapped up a NSIC Tournament first round game with their win Saturday. The playoffs begin Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Demolition has been halted at the Metrodome after a beam unexpectedly fell out of sequence and caused a tier to collapse.  John Wood, senior vice president with Mortenson Construction, says nobody was injured in the accident, which happened around 1 p.m. Monday. And he says all the debris fell within the safety zone, so no passers-by were at risk.
 
     But the Star Tribune reports investigators are trying to determine what happened because demolition requires the same precise engineering as construction. The newspaper reports the collapsed tier is visible from the street.
 
     A Mortenson spokesman says it's too soon to say when demolition will resume, but possibly later this week.  The Metrodome is slated to be gone by April to make way for the Minnesota Vikings' new $1 billion stadium.

     UNDATED (AP) - Syracuse is still No. 1 in the AP college basketball poll, but it is no longer a unanimous choice. The 25-0 Orange, who won two games in the final seconds last week, are on top for a third straight week but they received 64 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. They were a unanimous choice the last two weeks.
 
     Florida, which is 23-2, won at Kentucky on Saturday and moved from third to second and received the other first-place vote. The 27-0 Wichita State Shockers, the only other unbeaten Division I team, is third in the new poll while Arizona, which lost to Arizona State last week, dropped from second to fourth. This week's fifth-ranked school is Duke.
 
     The second five consists of San Diego State, Cincinnati, Kansas, Villanova and Saint Louis.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Connecticut remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll after winning its only game last week. The Huskies are 26-0 on the season and will host Central Florida on Wednesday before visiting Houston on Saturday.
 
     Notre Dame stays No. 2. The Irish, who also are unbeaten at 24-0, topped Boston College in their lone game of the week. Notre Dame has a busy week playing Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Duke.
 
     Louisville, South Carolina and Stanford round out the first five.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles were able to retool their starting rotation on Monday by acquiring a pair of free agents.
 
     A person familiar with the situation says the Birds and Ubaldo Jimenez have agreed to a contract, pending a physical. Several media outlets reported earlier that the sides had reached an agreement, which is reportedly for about $50 million over four years.  Jimenez went 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA in 32 starts for Cleveland last season.
 
     South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon and the O's have finalized to a three-year contract for just over $5.5 million, a deal that could escalate to $13,075,000 if the pitcher starts 26 or more games each season. The 27-year-old was 73-59 with a 3.19 ERA in nine seasons with the KIA Tigers in the Korean Baseball Organization.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss has named 41-year-old LaTroy Hawkins as his closer. Hawkins was with the Rockies in 2007 and saved 13 games last season for the New York Mets. The Rockies made several offseason moves to bolster a bullpen that had a National League-worst 4.23 ERA last season.
 
     - Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia says his left thumb feels fine three months after surgery. Pedroia had an operation to repair the ulnar collateral ligament he tore in last year's season opener when he slid into first base in the ninth inning of an 8-2 win at Yankee Stadium.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Meryl Davis and Charlie White have made Olympic history on Monday by becoming the first American team to win gold in ice dancing. The West Bloomfield, Mich., natives finished second in Vancouver four years ago.
 
     Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir finished second after capturing gold in Vancouver. This time, the Americans won with a score of 116.63 points compared to 114.66 for the Canadians. A team from Russia was third.
 
     American's Madison Chock and Evan Bates were eighth, while siblings Maia and Alex Shibutani were ninth.
 
     The U.S. two-man bobsled team of Steven Holcomb and Steve Langton won the bronze medal. Their time of 3:46.27 was 0.88 off the gold medal winning performance of the Russian duo.
 
     Following those results Russia and the U.S. are tied for the overall medal lead with 18. The Russians have five gold, seven silver and six bronze while the Americans have won five gold, four silver and nine bronze.
 
     The U.S. women's hockey team has advanced to Thursday's gold medal game at Sochi with a 6-1 semifinal win over Sweden. The Americans peppered the Swiss goaltender with 70 shots, one shy of the women's Olympic record of 71 as set by the U.S. against China in 2002.
 
     Megan Bozek, Kendall Coyne and Brianna Decker each had a goal and two assists for the U.S., which will play long-time rival Canada for the title. The Canadiens beat Switzerland 3-1 in Monday's other semifinal game.
 
     To nobody's surprise, the U.S.-Russia men's hockey game drew good TV ratings. NBC Sports Network says 4.1 million people in the United States watched the Americans' dramatic 3-2 victory, a record number for a hockey game on the channel.  When the game went to a shootout, 6.4 million people tuned in to watch T.J. Oshie score four times to lead Team USA to the win.
 
     Remember that broken Olympic ring during the Opening Ceremony? Russia's deputy prime minister say that it will be fixed in time for Sunday's Closing Ceremony. The glitch happened early in the opening ceremony, when snowflakes expanded to form the interlocking rings, which is one of the most anticipated moments of any Olympic opener. Four of the rings unfolded perfectly, but the fifth remained a snowflake before show organizers sent them out of sight.
 
     Bob Costas has returned as host for NBC's prime-time Olympic coverage, if still not exactly clear-eyed, at least with a sharpened sense of respect for the colleagues and crew who covered for him during a six-day absence. Costas missed the first week of action with an eye infection.
