    MINOT, ND (MSU) - Minot State University head men's basketball coach Matt Murken has added some shooting range with the signing of junior college forward Michael Pelo to a National Letter of Intent.

    Pelo, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound forward from Charleston, Utah, played the past two seasons at Western Wyoming Community College. He averaged 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds for Western Wyoming during the 2013-14 season, hitting 64 3-pointers on the season.

    "I am very excited to add a player of Mike's caliber to our program," Murken said. "He has been a consistent scorer in his two years of junior college basketball and shown a great ability to stretch the floor with his shooting ability. Mike will be a great fit to our program, the Minot State campus and our community."

    He started his collegiate career at NCAA Division II Weber State after a stellar prep campaign at Wasatch High School where he was named to the Utah 3A All State team. He played one season at Utah Valley University.

    After the two seasons at DI, Pelo thrived at Western Wyoming, averaging 12.6 points per game in his first season and then 11.2 last year. He was his team's captain for two seasons and earned WWCC's Outstanding Graduate award.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins will send top pitching prospect Alex Meyer to the Futures Game at the All-Star events at Target Field next week.  MLB announced today that Meyer will replace fellow right-hander and Triple-A Rochester teammate Trevor May at the exhibition Sunday. May has been out for more than a week with a strained right calf muscle.
 
     May was an injury-replacement pick for the U.S. team himself. Other Twins prospects on the World team roster are right-handed pitcher Jose Berrios and first baseman Kennys Vargas.
 
     Meyer was acquired from Washington in the Denard Span trade, and May came in the deal with Philadelphia for Ben Revere.  Meyer has a 3.46 ERA with 93 strikeouts in 83 1/3 innings. May has a 2.94 ERA with 81 strikeouts in 79 2-3 innings.

     The 13-man roster is highlighted by this year's draft picks Zach LaVine and Glenn Robinson III as well as returning players Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng and Alexey Shved. Muhammad and Dieng were drafted last year.
 
     Assistants David Adelman, Sidney Lowe, Sam Mitchell and Ryan Saunders will share coaching responsibilities for the squad.
