SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (MSU) – The battle of the young programs went to the host Cougars on Thursday night. The second-year Minot State women’s wrestling team got a pair of victories during the dual, but it wasn’t enough to spoil the first-ever home wrestling event for the first-year Sioux Falls Cougars who beat the Beavers 39-13. Freshman Bella Hernandez scored a win by pin in 49 seconds in her 130-pound match, and redshirt freshman Keela Kary added an 8-1 decision to the Beavers victory total at 136 pounds. That was all the victories for Minot State (3-3 duals) on the mat during the dual, though both teams claimed points in a double forfeit. Minot State did grab two more wins on the night, though, as Skye Shelmerdine and Trinity Boivin both wrestled in extra matches and picked up a win each by pin. Shelmerdine won by pin in 1:51 in a 116-pound match and Boivin won in 2:06 in her 123-pound match. In the midst of a busy week on the road, the Minot State women’s wrestling team wraps up three events in six days by competing at the Jimmie Lady Knight Open on Saturday hosted by the University of Jamestown.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns had 32 points and 11 rebounds, and the Minnesota Timberwolves weathered the absence of leading scorer Anthony Edwards to beat the Utah Jazz 101-90 on Thursday night. The Wolves moved into a tie with Boston for the best record in the league (14-4). Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored a season-high 20 points and Rudy Gobert had 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks for Minnesota. Acquired in a trade with Utah last season that also brought veteran guard Mike Conley to the Wolves, Alexander-Walker had the chance to show his former team what he’s capable of when given the opportunity. Edwards, who averages 26.2 points per game, was sidelined with a right hip pointer he suffered in Tuesday’s win over Oklahoma City. Coach Chris Finch said Thursday he didn’t expect Edwards to be out long. The Wolves improved to 9-1 at home, while the Jazz fell to 1-9 on the road. The Timberwolves play at Charlotte on Saturday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Connor Dewar had a hat trick and added an assist, Filip Gustavsson made 26 saves and the Minnesota Wild routed Nashville 6-1 on Thursday night to end the Predators’ winning streak at six games. Prior to Thursday, Dewar had never had more than a goal and two points in an NHL game. He appeared to score a fourth goal with just over four minutes remaining, but it was taken away after the Predators challenged the play as offside. Kirill Kaprizov had a goal and an assist, and Jake Middleton and Pat Maroon also scored for the Wild. They have won both games under new coach John Hynes. Hynes replaced Dean Evason behind the bench this week. Hynes served as Nashville’s coach for parts of four seasons before being relieved of his duties this past offseason by new general manager Barry Trotz. Andrew Brunette replaced Hynes in Nashville. The Predators played a tribute video of Hynes’ tenure during a first-period break. Minnesota scored three times in the first period. The Wild host Chicago on Sunday.
