The coach who led the Williston State College hockey team to back-to-back junior college national titles has resigned....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The coach who led the Williston State College hockey team to back-to-back junior college national titles has resigned.  Seamus Gregory has accepted the head coaching job at Northland College, an NCAA Division III school in Wisconsin.
 
     Williston State competes in the National Junior College Athletic Association. Gregory says his goal has always been to "get to the highest level that I can."
 
     Williston State hired Gregory after starting a hockey program in 2011. Williston State Foundation President Terry Olson credits Gregory with building the Tetons program, and says he's disappointed the coach is leaving.
 
     Gregory says his brief time at the North Dakota school enabled him to grow personally and professionally and "changed my life."  At Northland, Gregory will replace Steve Fabiilli, who resigned in April to take another job.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The Big Sky Conference is going to review whether it should continue to hold its men's and women's basketball tournaments at the site of the regular-season champion or use some other model, including the possibility of a predetermined location.
 
     Conference Commissioner Doug Fullerton says school administrators and conference staff will assess which format makes the most logistical and financial sense, taking into consideration travel costs, the time students are away from school and fan experience while also giving some advantage to teams that win regular-season titles.  Any potential changes would not take effect until March 2016.
 
     The league also expanded its women's soccer championship to six teams and split the volleyball teams into two six-team divisions for the regular season. Squads will play each team in their division twice and each team in the other division once, giving them 16 conference matches.
 
     The meetings were held in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Two people with knowledge of the decision tell The Associated Press that Flip Saunders is moving out of the front office to coach the Minnesota Timberwolves.
 
     Saunders was hired last season as president of basketball operations. After the team's search to replace the retired Rick Adelman was snagged by Kevin Love's uncertain future in Minnesota, it was determined that Saunders should step in to coach the team. The people requested anonymity today because the team has not officially announced the move.
 
     Saunders coached the team from 1995-2005. He has taken the Timberwolves to the only eight playoff appearances in franchise history, including the Western Conference finals in 2004.  Saunders will continue to work with GM Milt Newton in the front office while handling coaching duties.

     SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Miami's quest for an NBA three-peat begins tonight in San Antonio.  The two-time defending champ Heat open the NBA Finals on the road against a Spurs team still smarting over the loss to Miami in the Finals last year.  Miami overcame a five-point deficit in the final half minute to win Game 6 and clinched the title two nights later.  This is the first NBA Finals rematch since 1998.
 
     This will be the sixth finals for the Spurs since 1999 and Miami's fifth in nine years.  Miami is trying to become the first team to win three straight NBA titles since the Lakers did it in 2003.  The teams split their two regular season games with each winning on its home court.
