The Beavers pushed the No. 5 team in the country, but fell for the third time in a row against the Mavericks in the NSIC tournament....

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (MSU) - Minot State University's Ali Cygan picked a great time to hit her first home run of the season.  Cygan's grand slam in the bottom of the fifth capped a five-run inning and lifted the No. 8 seed Beavers to a 6-2 win over No. 9 Upper Iowa in the first game of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference softball tournament Thursday at a chilly Sherman Park.

    Minot State moved on to play top seed Minnesota State in a second-round game.  The Beavers pushed the No. 5 team in the country, but fell for the third time in a row against the Mavericks in the NSIC tournament over the past two seasons, losing 3-1 in the second round of the 2014 NSIC Tournament.

    The Beavers move on to play Concordia-St. Paul in a loser out game at 10 a.m. today.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - University of Mary No. 9 hitter Erin Keen claimed that she and her teammates were not aiming for the fences during the first day of the Northern Sun conference tournament.  Concordia-St. Paul and Winona State might disagree with that.

    Behind seven home runs, the Marauders won their first two games of the tournament on Thursday.  The No. 7-seeded Marauders opened the tournament with a 7-3 victory over No. 10 Concordia-St. Paul. U-Mary then upset the No. 2 seed and the 18th-ranked team in the nation, Winona State, 10-8.  Pitcher Cherlyn Trujillo picked up the victory in both games.

    The Bismarck Tribune reports that U-Mary (32-20) matches up with No. 3-seeded Augustana at Noon today in the winners' bracket of the double-elimination tournament.

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - The Minot State University baseball team extended their season-high six game winning streak with a pair of Northern Sun wins over University of Minnesota Crookston Thursday afternoon at Corbett Field.

    The Beavers (17-21 Overall, 11-13 NSIC) took down the Golden Eagles (1-43 Overall, 0-32 NSIC) 16-4 in game one before beating UMC 6-5 in dramatic fashion in the final home game of the season.

    With six consecutive wins, Minot State now has a chance to control their own destiny in making the postseason for the first time as members of the NSIC.  With four games remaining in the regular season, all coming against Bemidji State (19-20 Overall, 13-13 NSIC), MSU can secure a playoff berth with four wins and a little help from Northern State.

    BSU and Southwest Minnesota State University (23-20 Overall, 14-13 NSIC) both sit ahead of the Beavers for the final playoff spot, but with a 4-0 record on the weekend and a 2-2 finish by SMSU versus Northern State would secure the final playoff spot for Minot State.

    MSU and BSU will play their season ending series today at 1/3 p.m. and Saturday at 12/2 p.m. in Bemidji, Minn.

    All fans and Minot State students in attendance will have chances to win great prizes by either handing in post cards received for the event or tweeting trivia answers to the Minot State Athletics twitter account (MSUBeavers) when prompted. Fans can win prizes up to $100 in value, including gift certificates to Target, Spicy Pie and Applebee's as well as a range of Minot State gear.

     NEW YORK (AP) - NBA owners are not wasting any time to end the tenure of one of their own, embattled L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The NBA owners' advisory/finance committee has held its first meeting about Sterling and is committed to ending his ownership "as expeditiously as possible."
 
     The 10-member committee held a conference call Thursday to discuss "the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers," the league says in a statement.
 
     Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million Tuesday for making racist comments. Silver said he also would urge owners to force Sterling to sell.  The committee plans to meet again next week.

     BOSTON (AP) - It's the 34th time the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins are meeting in the postseason. For just the sixth time, it required multiple overtimes to decide a game as P.K. Subban scored a power-play goal at 4:17 of the second overtime to give the Canadiens a heart-stopping 4-3 victory in Game 1.
 
     It was Subban's second power-play goal of the game. Boston forced overtime by scoring three times in the third period before losing in the second overtime. Boston fans pelted the ice with cups and giveaway towels as the players filed off of the ice.
 
     Carey Price was magnificent in goal for Montreal, turning back 48 shots. Montreal is a perfect 5-0 in the postseason. Game 2 is Saturday, also in Boston.
 
     Tonight, two more conference semifinals get underway. The New York Rangers are at Pittsburgh and the Minnesota Wild take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

     EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Eli Manning will miss all of the New York Giants' spring activities. General manager Jerry Reese says Manning's left ankle surgery will keep him out and that the team will not rush back its starting quarterback.  Manning's primary backup last year, Curtis Painter, recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and is out for about a month. He could be back for the team's minicamp in June.
 
    - The Browns, who are in desperate need of a quarterback, have signed a player who hasn't played in a regular season NFL game since 2011. The man in question is free agent Vince Young. He was given a tryout earlier this week. The 30-year-old is 31-19 as an NFL starter.
