    MINOT, ND - Minot is headed to their third Dakota Bowl in four years with a victory over two-time defending state champion Bismarck Century. On a cold snowy night at the Bismarck Community Bowl the biggest play of game was a 69 yard touchdown run by Adrian Davis-Aguilar in the third quarter that put Minot up 14-7. The Magicians will end the season the way they started, playing West Fargo. This time it will be for a state title.

    MADISON, Wis. (UND) - Freshman Peter Thome did not deviate from his typical gameday routine after finding out following Friday's morning skate that he'd be making his first collegiate start later that night at seventh-ranked Wisconsin. After North Dakota head coach Brad Berry informed Thome he'd be making the start in place of injured senior Cam Johnson, the St. Cloud, Minn., native went back to the team hotel for his standard ritual of a pre-game nap and a few episodes of The Office.

    His pre-game routine may have been ordinary, but his performance on Friday night was anything but ordinary. Thome turned aside 36 saves in a spectacular performance, leading the Fighting Hawks to a 3-2 victory. UND improved to 6-2-1 overall with the win, while the Badgers fell to 6-3-0.

    Thome's 36 saves were the most made by a debuting UND netminder this century and provided UND with much needed relief in the absence of Johnson, who had started 75 of the team's last 78 games.

    BOTTINEAU, ND (DCB) - Dakota College at Bottineau (8-1) will host Mesabi Range Community and Technical College (6-3) in MCAC semifinal action at Les Christian Field in Bottineau today at Noon.

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - The Minot State football team will wrap up the home portion of the 2017 schedule today as it hosts Minnesota State Moorhead in a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference game scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff at Herb Parker Stadium.

    Minot State, which enters the game with a 2-7 record overall, has plenty to play for in the final two weeks of the season. The Beavers are 2-3 in the NSIC North with an opportunity to finish with a winning record in divisional play and Saturday will be the last chance to post a home victory this season.

    The Beavers are coming off of a 42-35 road win at Minnesota Crookston last week in which Overstreet scored on a 7-yard run with 18 seconds to play in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

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

    FARGO, ND (NDSU) - No. 2-ranked North Dakota State (8-0, 5-0 MVFC) travels to face No. 8-ranked South Dakota State (6-2, 3-2 MVFC) in the annual Dakota Marker game today at 2 p.m. in Brookings, S.D. SDSU's 19-17 last-second win in Fargo last year snapped an eight-game NDSU series winning streak.

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

    GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) - Fresh off their best road performance of the season, the Fighting Hawks get a chance to turn in another one Saturday at No. 17/23 Southern Utah. Kickoff against the Thunderbirds is set for 7 p.m. CT from Cedar City. The Fighting Hawks snapped a brief a two-game skid with a convinving 48-21 victory over winless Portland State last Saturday after falling behind 14-0. It was the team's first road win of the season in five tries.

     FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kurt Busch has earned the pole at Texas with the fastest qualifying time in track history.

Seven of the eight championship contenders will start in the top 10 spots, with Chase Elliott beginning in the 17th row. Denny Hamlin was second, followed by Kevin Harvick and Erik Jones.

Darrell Henderson ran for 123 yards on 14 carries and had six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Tigers' fifth straight win.

     UNDATED (AP) - LeBron James made sure the Cleveland Cavaliers put an end to their four-game losing streak on Friday.
 
     James poured in an NBA season-high 57 points while delivering 11 rebounds and seven assists as the Cavs outscored the Wizards 130-122 in Washington. It was his highest-scoring performance since getting a career-high 61 for the Heat against the Hornets 3  1/2 years ago.
 
     The four-time MVP also provided an array of highlights. He hurdled over a seated Bradley Beal while dribbling, swatted a shot by John Wall off the backboard, and looked for a camera to wag both index fingers in the midst of a three-point play.
 
     Derrick Rose finished with 20 points and Jae Crowder added 17, with both hitting season highs before the final period to help the Cavaliers improve to 4-5.
 
     Bradley Beal had 36 points for the Wizards, but Wall had just 13 on 4 of 13 shooting.
 
     The Spurs also halted a four-game slide as Bryn Forbes furnished 22 points off the bench in a 108-101 triumph over the Hornets. Rudy Gay scored 20 points and Dejounte Murray had 10 to help San Antonio's reserves outscore the Charlotte subs 62-16.
 
     Spurs guard Tony Parker remains out of the lineup due to a quadriceps injury.
 
     Checking out the rest of Friday's NBA schedule:
 
     - The Celtics trailed by 18 at halftime before Kyrie Irving and Al Horford led a second-half charge that send Boston to its seventh straight win 101-94 at Oklahoma City. Irving scored 22 of his 25 points while Horford added 17 of his 20 points in the last two quarters as the Celts extended the league's longest current winning streak.
 
     - James Harden had 21 of his 29 points in the first half and the Rockets improved to 6-1 on the road by dealing the Hawks their eighth consecutive loss, 119-104. Eric Gordon and Luc Mbah a Moute (look ehm-bah ah-MOO'-tay) each scored 20 points for Houston, which led 69-51 in its highest-scoring first half of the season.
 
     - The 76ers are over .500 for the first time in nearly four years. J.J. Redick scored 31 points and hit three decisive 3-pointers down the stretch to close out a 121-110 victory against the Pacers. Rookie Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in Philadelphia's fourth consecutive win.
 
     - DeMar DeRozan shot 14-for-14 from the line while scoring a season-high 37 points in a 109-100 victory at Utah. The Raptors completed a 3-3 road trip and handed the Jazz their first loss in six home games this season.
 
     - Paul Millsap had 27 points, including three straight free throws with 11.9 seconds remaining to lift the Nuggets past the Heat 95-94. Nikola Jokic added 19 points and 14 rebounds for Denver, including a third-quarter jumper that gave the Nuggets their first lead of the night.
 
     - Kristaps Porzingis scored 37 points and Enes Kanter added 16 points and 15 rebounds for the Knicks in a 120-107 downing of the Suns. Tim Hardaway Jr. contributed 21 points in New York's fourth win in five games since an 0-3 start.
 
     - Andre Drummond scored 14 of his 24 points in the third quarter after Avery Bradley registered 19 of his 23 points by halftime of the Pistons' 105-96 win over the Bucks. Detroit went on a 21-5 run late in the second quarter and led 59-48 at halftime.
 
     - Justin Holiday finished with 19 points and the Bulls outscored the Magic 29-15 in the third quarter to help Chicago turn a one-point halftime deficit into a 105-83 romp at Orlando. Robin Lopez was among seven Bulls with at least 10 points, contributing 11 and 10 rebounds.
 
     - The Mavericks are 1-9 for the first time in 24 years after Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousin lit them up in the Pelicans' 99-94 win at Dallas. Davis finished with 30 points and 13 boards while Cousins added 20 points, 22 rebounds and seven assists.
 
     - Brook Lopez torched his former team for six 3-pointers and a season-high 34 points to lead the Lakers to a 124-112 win over the Nets. Jordan Clarkson added 19 points and Brandon Ingram had 18 for the Lakers, but Lonzo Ball scored just six on 3 of 15 shooting.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - The Edmonton Oilers had one of their best performances of the season to send the New Jersey Devils to their first road loss.
 
     The Devils were 9-2-0 overall until Connor McDavid set up three goals in a 6-3 loss at Edmonton. The Oilers squandered a 2-0 lead before Oscar Klefbom beat Corey Schneider six minutes into the second period, about a minute after Jesper Bratt tied the game.
 
     Milan Lucic notched the eventual game-winner as the Oilers stopped a two-game losing streak and improved to 4-7-1.
 
     Former Oiler Taylor Hall scored once but made a passing miscue that led to an empty-net goal.
 
     Also in the NHL, Viktor Arvidsson scored the eventual game-winner and Roman Josi had a goal and an assist as the Predators held off the Ducks 5-3. Pekka Rinne stopped 35 shots and was perfect after Jakob Silfverberg got Anaheim within 4-3 with 12:19 left.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. will need at least four weeks to recover from hand surgery performed Friday. He was averaging 10.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals when he broke a bone in his left hand during Thursday's loss at Portland.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Although the Dallas Cowboys have one of the NFL's top offensive lines, Ezekiel Elliott continues to get his biggest blocks from the courts.
 
     A federal appeals court says the Cowboys running back can play in Sunday's home game against Kansas City, blocking a lower-court ruling earlier this week that required Elliott to begin serving a league-imposed six-game suspension. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York also said its brief order does not constitute a resolution on the merits of the court case.
 
     The suspension was initially imposed in August, but Elliott has not missed a game as his legal team continues to receive injunctions. The suspension was handed out after the NFL investigated several alleged physical confrontations in the summer of 2016 with Elliott's girlfriend at the time.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has been fined more than $48,000 by the league for his hit Sunday on Tampa Bay wide receiver Adam Humphries. Davis was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play, which was deemed a helmet-to-helmet hit.
 
     - Miami's Kiko Alonso was docked over $9,000 for his hit on Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco, who suffered a concussion on the play. Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh was not fined for either of his two unnecessary roughness penalties in that game.
 
     - Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington due to a strained hamstring sustained in Sunday's 41-38 victory against Houston. Linebacker Bobby Wagner, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and running back C.J. Prosise are expected to be game-time decisions.
 
     - The Jaguars will have running back Leonard Fournette and center Brandon Linder back in the starting lineup Sunday against Cincinnati. Fournette missed the team's last game at Indianapolis with a sprained right ankle, and Linder sat out the last three games with an undisclosed illness.
 
     - The Packers have activated linebacker Vince Biegel from the reserve/physically unable to perform list.  The rookie was sidelined for the first two months of the season as he slowly worked his way back from offseason foot surgery.
 
     - The Raiders will be without cornerbacks David Amerson, Gareon Conley and Demetrius McCray for Sunday night's game at Miami because of injuries.
 
     - Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is expected to play against Carolina even after being limited in practice for the third straight day.
 
     - The Rams have placed safety Cody Davis on injured reserve with a thigh injury suffered three weeks ago at Jacksonville.
 
     - Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti says he'll donate his brain to Boston University to support research of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The 76-year-old revealed in May that he was diagnosed with dementia, and his doctors suspect CTE may contribute to his symptoms.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have exercised their $11.5 million option on outfielder Michael Brantley for next season. The 30-year-old Brantley hit .299 with nine homers and 52 RBIs in 90 games, his second straight injury-shortened season. Cleveland also exercised a $3 million option on right-hander Josh Tomlin, who was 6-0 with a 3.11 ERA in his last 10 appearances this year.
 
     In other major league news:
 
     - The Pirates have exercised their $14.75 million option on five-time All-Star outfielder and 2013 National League MVP Andrew McCutchen.  The 31-year-old hit a team-high 28 homers and drove in 88 runs for the Pirates last season.
 
     - Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka decided to stay with the Yankees and not exercise the right to opt out of the remaining three seasons of his contract. The 29-year-old right-hander was 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA in the regular season before going 2-1 with a 0.90 earned run average in the playoffs.
 
     - Ichiro Suzuki's $2 million club option with the Marlins has been declined, making the 44-year-old outfielder a free agent. It's the first major roster move by the Marlins since Derek Jeter's ownership group took over a month ago, and the team is expected to cut payroll to about $90 million.
 
     - The Mets have exercised an $8.25 million option on infielder Asdrubal Cabrera and a $7 million option of left-hander Jerry Blevins. Cabrera hit .280 with 32 doubles, 14 homers and 59 RBIs in 135 games this season, while Blevins was 6-0 with a 2.94 ERA in 75 games.
 
     - The Angels have declined their 2018 contract options on former closer Huston Street and right-hander Ricky Nolasco. The club also announced that Eric Young Jr., Shane Robinson and Deolis Guerra have elected to become free agents.
 
     - Justin Upton's new five-year, $106 million contract with the Angels backloads money and will save the team more than $6 million next season and $4 million in 2019. He gets an $8.5 million signing bonus that is payable on Jan. 21, 2022, and salaries of $16 million next season and $18 million in 2019.

     TORONTO (AP) - Former NHL referee Kerry Fraser says he has been diagnosed with an incurable form of blood cancer. He described it on the NHL's website today as "an incurable cancer in the leukemia family, although in rare instances it can evolve into a related disease called myelofibrosis, or into acute leukemia." Fraser added that while it is incurable, patients can live a normal life with it for many years. Fraser spent 30 years as an NHL referee before retiring in 2010.
