     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The coach who guided the University of North Dakota to its first NCAA hockey championship has died.  Dr. Robert May was 87.
 
     May coached the program in the 1957-58 and 1958-59 seasons and led UND into the NCAA title game both years. UND defeated Michigan State 4-3 in the 1959 championship.  May's record with UND was 45-17-2.
 
     A former defenseman for UND, May played in 47 games and served as team captain in 1950-51. He received his bachelor's degree from UND in 1951.
 
     May later became a dentist in Minnesota and served a stint as team dentist for the Minnesota North Stars. His hockey coaching career included stops with the Minneapolis Roosevelt boys and the Wayzata, Minnesota, girls.
 
     May is a member of the UND Letterwinners Association Hall of Fame.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Former North Dakota State University men's basketball standouts Taylor Braun and TrayVonn Wright have signed contracts to play professionally in Europe.  Braun has signed with a team in Belgium's top league, and Wright with a team in Austria's top league.
 
     Braun, of Newberg, Oregon, was the Summit League player of the year this past season and an honorable mention selection for The Associated Press All-America basketball team. Wright, from Waterloo, Iowa, was an All-Summit League second-team selection last season.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.  

      Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.
 
     Suzuki, a first-time All-Star selection who was the catcher for the ninth inning of the American League's victory here at Target Field last week, posted his ninth three-hit game this season. He raised his batting average to .311 and is 25 for 63 in his last 17 games.
 
     In another All-Star game reprise, Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Robbie Hummel.  Hummel's agency, Priority Sports, announced the agreement on Monday night. He averaged 3.4 points in just over 12 minutes per game as a rookie last season.
 
     Bringing Hummel back gives president and coach Flip Saunders a shooter off the bench with the ability to play multiple positions.  It's also the next chapter in a nice comeback story for Hummel, who has overcome major knee injuries in college at Purdue to make the NBA.
 
     When completed, the deal will give the Timberwolves 14 players under contract for next season. That leaves them with one open roster spot as they continue to address areas of need.

It was Minnesota's only game that week heading into the All-Star break.
 
     Moore posted her ninth 30-point-plus performance of the season, tying Lauren Jackson for the second-highest single-season total in WNBA history. Moore also added nine rebounds, five assists and two steals.  It was the third time this season Moore has been named Western Conference Player of the Week, and the eighth time she's won the honor in her career.
