MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – While in the midst of a stellar season, the Beaver women’s hockey team continues to build for a bright the future, as well, as head coach Ryan Miner added another star recruit during the Christmas break. Coach Miner is pleased to announce that Chloe Stewart, a 5-foot-6 defenseman from Weyburn, Saskatchewan, has signed a National Letter-of-Intent and will be a freshman in the classroom and on the ice for Minot State in the fall of 2023. A senior at Eagle Butte High School who also plays softball, Stewart had three goals and five assists in 30 games last season, including three playoff games, for the South Albert Hockey Academy. In 17 games this season, she already has two goals and five assists for the South Alberta Hockey Academy. Stewart said she chose Minot State because of the “great program and it’s super close to home; I heard so many good things about the team and school.”
FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) – North Dakota State’s Andrew Morgan put up 24 points and 13 rebounds to lift the Bison men’s basketball team to a 65-59 victory over South Dakota State on Thursday night inside the Scheels Center. Morgan’s 24 points tied a career-high, and he ripped down eight offensive boards on the way to his second career double-double. NDSU junior Grant Nelson added 17 points and eight rebounds, including two thunderous dunks and a pivotal three-pointer late in the second half.
The game featured 12 ties and seven lead changes. The Bison trailed 48-41 with just under 10 minutes remaining, but NDSU went on an 8-0 run over the next two minutes to pull ahead, 49-48. The Jackrabbits regained the lead twice more, but Nelson’s three-pointer from the wing put NDSU up 56-54 with 3:44 left, and the Bison held the lead the rest of the way. Leading 60-59 in the final minute, Nelson added one more clutch bucket to put the Bison up three, and they added three free throws in the closing seconds. NDSU shot 44 percent for the game and limited SDSU to 40-percent shooting. The Bison posted a 40-28 rebounding advantage, as Morgan, Nelson and Boden Skunberg combined for 29 boards. The Bison improved to 5-11 overall and 2-2 in The Summit League, while the Jackrabbits fell to 7-9 overall and 2-2 in the league. NDSU hosts South Dakota on Saturday at 1 p.m.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – North Dakota fell 62-60 to South Dakota inside the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center on Thursday evening. The game was knotted up at 60-60 with 20.5 seconds but a Kruz Perrott-Hunt jumper in the paint with 1.4 seconds left was the difference. Perrott-Hunt and Paul Bruns paced the Coyotes (8-8, 3-1 SL) with 15 points apiece. On the game-winner, Perrott-Hunt was well guarded by Brady Danielson, who forced him to take a fadeaway shot that rattled home. North Dakota had 1.4 seconds to create a shot and had an open look when Danielson lobbed the ball and it found Treysen Eaglestaff at the three-point line. Eaglestaff got the would-be game-winner off in time, but it fell short and allowed South Dakota to escape with the 62-60 win. Eaglestaff was the top Hawk (6-10, 0-3 SL), pouring in a season-high 18 . Fellow freshman B.J. Omot was next in scoring for UND, throwing down 15 points in 27 minutes of play. North Dakota will continue its homestand on Saturday, hosting South Dakota State at 1 p.m.
BROOKINGS, S.D. (NDSU) – The North Dakota State women’s basketball team dropped a 94-63 decision at South Dakota State on Thursday night at Frost Arena. Abby Graham paced the Bison (9-5, 3-1 Summit) with a season-high 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field. Taylor Brown filled up her stat line with eight points, a team-high seven rebounds and four assists. Emily Behnke also contributed nine points with five rebounds and one block. As a team, NDSU shot 39.1 percent (25-64) from the field and 27.8 percent (5-18) from three. NDSU also scored 40 points in the paint and the bench contributed 24 points. The Jackrabbits (12-5, 5-0 Summit) started off fast opening up a 23-3 edge after a three from Haleigh Timmer at the 5:16 mark of the first quarter. SDSU, who entered the week ranked No. 4 in the College Insider Mid-Major Top 25 Poll, continued to surge pushing its lead up to 35-9 after the opening frame. The Bison weren’t able to slow the Jackrabbits the rest of the way and went on to fall 94-63. NDSU will be back in action at South Dakota on Saturday. Tip-off is set for 1:00 p.m.
VERMILLION, S.D. (UND) – The University of North Dakota women’s basketball team dropped a 79-67 decision to South Dakota on Thursday evening from the Sanford Coyote Sports Complex in Vermillion, S.D. UND (9-5, 2-2 Summit League) saw the host Coyotes (8-8, 4-1 Summit League) explode for a 12-for-18 shooting attack from the field, including a 5-for-9 stretch from three, during the second quarter to finish with a 31-13 advantage in the frame to help South Dakota win its 14th straight over the Fighting Hawks. Kacie Borowicz paced NoDak on the offensive side once again, striking for 18 points on 6-of-18 from the field while matching the team lead with eight rebounds. It marks the 22nd straight game in double figures for the senior, who has now led the Fighting Hawks in scoring in every contest this season. North Dakota closes out the tough, three-game stretch against South Dakota State on Saturday afternoon from Frost Arena in Brookings, S.D. 
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) — Dylan Guenther scored his second goal of the game at 6:22 of overtime to give Canada a 3-2 victory over the Czech Republic on Thursday night for its record-extending 20th world junior hockey title. The Arizona Coyotes forward took a pass from Joshua Roy on a 2-on-1 and beat goalie Tomas Suchanek in the 3-on-3 extra period after Canada blew a 2-0 lead in the third period. Shane Wright, on his 19th birthday, also scored for Canada, and Thomas Milic made 24 saves. Canada also won the pandemic-delayed summer showcase in Edmonton, Alberta. Earlier, Chaz Lucius completed a hat trick in overtime and the United States beat Sweden 8-7 in the third-place game.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Kirk Cousins and the NFC North champion Minnesota Vikings will try to head into the playoffs on a winning note when they visit the Chicago Bears in the regular-season finale. The Vikings got pummeled 41-17 at Green Bay last week. They also lost standout right tackle Brian O’Neill and backup center Austin Schlottman to season-ending injuries. Minnesota won’t have to contend with Justin Fields after the Bears announced this week he will not play. That ends his shot at breaking the NFL single-season rushing record for a quarterback. Chicago set a franchise record last week at Detroit by dropping its ninth straight and matched one with its 13th loss.
