SAN JOSE, Calif. (UND) – North Dakota trailed 27-26 at the break, but San Jose State (4-3) won the second half by a tally of 49-25 and it proved to be the difference in the 76-51 decision at the Provident Credit Union Event Center on Friday night. Mitchell Sueker led the Hawks (3-6) and just missed out on a double-double with 16 points to go with nine rebounds.
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (UND) – No. 5 St. Cloud State exploded for eight goals in an 8-1 victory over UND in the series opener on Friday. UND (10-6-0, 5-2-0 NCHC) is glad that the loss only counted as one in the standings, but the Huskies (10-5-0, 4-3-0 NCHC) took out some frustration to snap a three-game losing skid and a small two-game slide against North Dakota. It’s the largest margin of defeat for UND since 1998.
FARGO, ND – No. 2 seed North Dakota State (10-1) begins postseason play hosting Southern Illinois (8-4) in the second round of the NCAA Division I Football Championship at 2:30 pm today at the Fargodome. The Bison had a first-round bye, while the Salukis are coming off a 22-10 win at South Dakota. Today’s winner advances to the quarterfinals to face either Kennesaw State or No. 7 seed East Tennessee State. SIU had lost eight straight in the series before last February’s 38-14 win in Carbondale, which snapped NDSU’s FCS-record 39-game winning streak.
NEW YORK (AP) – Kevin Durant scored 30 points, including the clinching jumper with 11 seconds left, and the Brooklyn Nets held off the Minnesota Timberwolves 110-105. Durant was 12 of 13 on free throws and Patty Mills added 23 points for the Nets, who won for the fifth time in six games and improved their Eastern Conference-leading record to 16-6. James Harden finished with 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 13 points. Former Nets guard D’Angelo Russell scored 21 points for the Timberwolves, who have lost three of five. Naz Reid and Anthony Edwards finished with 19 apiece, and Malik Beasley had 18.

LAS VEGAS (AP) – No. 14 Utah is going to the Rose Bowl for the first time in school history after dominating the Pac-12 championship game. Devin Lloyd had a pick-6 and Cam Rising threw for another score in the Utes’ 38-10 rout of 10th-ranked Oregon. It was a carbon copy of their meeting two weeks ago, when Utah opened strong in a 38-7 thrashing of the Ducks. Rising threw for 170 yards and ran for another 61 as the Utes improved to 10-3. Tavion Thomas had two of Utah’s three rushing touchdowns. Ducks quarterback Anthony Brown was just 13 of 24 for 147 yards for the Ducks.


UNDATED (AP) – Second-ranked Purdue was able to win its Big Ten opener despite blowing most of a 19-point lead. Jaden Ivey scored 19 points and Trevion Williams had a double-double as the Boilermakers topped Iowa, 77-70. Williams provided 13 points and 18 rebounds in helping Purdue stay in line for a No. 1 ranking on Monday, thanks to Duke’s loss to Ohio State earlier this week. But the Boilermakers watched a 63-44 shrink to 70-68 following an 11-0 run by the Hawkeyes. Purdue closed on a 7-2 spurt to secure the win. Patrick McCaffrey had a team-high 15 points for Iowa, which played without leading scorer and rebounder Keegan Murray because of an ankle injury.

Also on Friday’s Top-25 men’s basketball schedule:
– Seventh-ranked Texas went on a 19-0 run and allowed just 17 second-half points in an 88-58 rout of Rio Grande Valley. Christian Bishop scored 17 points in just 14 minutes for the Longhorns, hitting all nine of his free throws. Timmy Allen and Tre Mitchell scored 13 points each for Texas, with Mitchell adding five rebounds and five assists.
– Christian Braun had a career-high 31 points, Ochai Agbaji scored 23 to carry eighth-ranked Kansas to a 95-75 rout of St. John’s. Senior forward David McCormack was a force inside with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the 6-1 Jayhawks. Julian Champagnie scored all but four of his 24 points after halftime for the Red Storm.
– No. 15 Houston crushed Bryant, 111-44 as Tramon Mark tied a career high with 22 points and Josh Carlton added 17. Fabian White Jr. had 13 of his 16 points while the Cougars were building a 52-21 lead. The Cougars shot a season-high 62% and made 10 of 23 3-pointers.

UNDATED (AP) – The Phoenix Suns’ team-record winning streak has ended at 18 games. Stephen Curry bounced back from one of the worst shooting nights of his career by scoring 23 points as the Golden State Warriors ripped the Suns, 118-96. Three days after going 4 of 21 while missing 11 of 14 3-point tries in a 104-96 loss in Phoenix, Curry shot 8 of 20 with six 3s, five rebounds and five assists. Andrew Wiggins added 19 points as Golden State extended its home winning streak to 11. Deandre Ayton had 23 points and six rebounds for Phoenix.

Checking out Friday’s other NBA action:
– The Clippers posted a 119-115 win over the Lakers behind Luke Kenard, who scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half and hit two clutch 3-pointers in the final minutes. Paul George scored 19 points for the Clippers, who never trailed and never pulled away in the city rivals’ first meeting of the season. LeBron James had 23 points and 11 rebounds in his first game back from a one-game absence under the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
– Kevin Durant delivered 30 points in the Nets’ fifth victory in six games, a 110-105 downing of the Timberwolves. Durant was 12 of 13 from the line in leading five Nets with at least 10 points. Patty Mills finished with 23 points and James Harden contributed 20 with nine assists and seven rebounds.
– Donovan Mitchell had 34 points and six assists to lead the Jazz over the Celtics, 137-130. Mike Conley added 29 points and seven assists, while teammate Rudy Gobert tallied 18 points and 12 rebounds. Utah made a season-high 27 3-pointers and shot 53% from long distance to overcome Jayson Tatum’s game-high 37 points for Boston.
– Kyle Lowry made up for the absence of four Miami starters by scoring a season-high 26 points in the Heat’s 113-104 decision at Indiana. Duncan Robinson scored a season-high 24 points and made four 3s for the Heat, while Tyler Herro (HEE’-roh) added three treys and 18 points. Miami was 16-of-34 shooting from beyond the arc, compared to the Pacers’ 9 of 36.
– The 76ers outlasted the Hawks, 98-96 as Joel Embiid drained a jumper with 42 seconds remaining to give Philadelphia its first lead of the second half. Embiid provided 28 points and 12 boards for the Sixers, who have won both meetings with Atlanta this season after being knocked out by the Hawks in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals last spring. Trae Young had 25 points for the Hawks, who led 90-80.
– Cleveland has a four-game winning streak after Darius Garland furnished 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds to a 116-101 win at Washington. The Cavaliers led by 29 following a 19-0 spurt that bridged both halves. Jarrett Allen had 28 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth consecutive double-double.
– The Pelicans missed 18 of their first 20 shots and still came away with a 107-91 trouncing of the Mavericks. New Orleans outscored Dallas, 63-43 after halftime for its fourth win in six games following a 3-16 start. Brandon Ingram delivered 24 points, while Jonas Valanciunas and Willy Hernangomez each had double-doubles.
– Eric Gordon capped his 24-point performance by hitting a short jumper with 1.6 seconds left to send the Rockets to their fifth win in a row, 118-116 over the Magic. Christian Wood had 20 points for the Rockets and Garrison Mathews scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter. Cole Anthony dropped in eight of his game-high 26 points while Orlando tied the game with a 13-0 run in the final period.
UNDATED (AP) – The New York Rangers’ latest victory may be a costly one. Ryan Strome’s first-period goal stood up as the Rangers picked up their fifth straight win, 1-0 over the Sharks. The Blueshirts have won seven straight at home and are 9-2-0 in their last 11 overall. But New York finished the game without Igor Shesterkin, who appeared to suffer a right leg injury stretching out face-down in the crease just over five minutes into the third period. Alexander Georgiev stopped nine shots after Shesterkin recorded 19. Adin Hill made 25 saves for the Sharks, who had won three in a row.
Elsewhere on NHL ice:
– Yanni Gourde scored his sixth goal of the season 49 seconds into the Kraken’s 4-3 verdict over the Oilers. Colin Blackwell and Alex Wennberg scored less than two minutes apart in the second period, helping the expansion team win for the fifth time in seven games. Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl scored his league-high 21st goal of the season in the first period.
– The Flames extended their road point streak to eight games with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Ducks. Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk scored in the shootout after Sean Monahan furnished a goal and an assist.
– The Jets crushed the Devils, 8-4 behind Mark Scheifele’s three goals and one assist. Nikolaj Ehlers scored twice and Blake Wheeler had three assists in the rout.
– Max Pacioretty scored twice and Chandler Stephenson had a short-handed tally in a four-goal second that carried the Golden Knights to a 7-1 win over the Coyotes. Michael Amadio, Evgenii Dadonov and Nicolas Roy each had a goal and an assist to help Vegas win for the first time in three games.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) – Notre Dame has quickly hired a new football coach without embarking on a detailed search. Defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman has been promoted to head coach of the Fighting Irish, less than a week after Brian Kelly left to take over LSU’s program. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Tuesday that Notre Dame would conduct a thorough search for the storied program’s 30th coach. The search didn’t last long as word began to leak Wednesday afternoon that Freeman was Notre Dame’s choice. The 35-year-old Freeman helped the Irish go 11-1 in what was expected to be a transition season after making the playoff.


SEATTLE (AP) – Fifth-ranked UCLA’s game at Washington scheduled for Sunday has been canceled because of COVID-19 issues in the Huskies’ program. The game won’t be rescheduled and will count as a Pac-12 victory for the Bruins. A conference rule for games impacted by COVID-19 says that if two schools can’t agree on a date to reschedule, then the team dealing with the coronavirus outbreak will forfeit the game.


COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – Mark Turgeon is out as Maryland’s basketball coach after a slow start to his 11th season knocked the team out of the Top 25. The athletic department announced Friday that Turgeon was stepping down in what it called a mutual decision. The Terrapins won at least 23 games in five of the past seven seasons, but Maryland has reached the Sweet 16 just once under Turgeon and hasn’t gone further. The Terps began this season ranked, but a loss at home to Virginia Tech on Wednesday night dropped them to 5-3 on the season. Assistant Danny Manning was named interim coach for the rest of the season.


UNDATED (AP) – New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will not play against Miami on Sunday because of a neck injury. Coach Joe Judge ruled out Jones on Friday after being told by the team’s medical personnel that the third-year quarterback had not been cleared for contact. Jones had practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday. Veteran Mike Glennon will start for the Giants.

Elsewhere in the NFL:
– The Chiefs will be without starting cornerback Rashad Fenton and right tackle Lucas Niang for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. Fenton has a knee injury and Niang is dealing with a rib injury, raising the possibility that former All-Pro lineman Kyle Long could play for the first time in two years.
– Broncos rookie running back Javonte Williams will get his first start Sunday night at Kansas City if Melvin Gordon III can’t play. Gordon didn’t practice all week because of hip and shoulder injuries and was listed as doubtful Friday.
– The Seahawks could elevate Adrian Peterson from the practice squad to play against San Francisco on Sunday. Peterson was signed this week by the Seahawks due to concerns about depth at running back.
– Bears coach Matt Nagy says Justin Fields’ broken ribs haven’t improved to the extent that he can play against the Cardinals on Sunday. That means Andy Dalton will make his fourth start of the season.

UNDATED (AP) – The Portland Trail Blazers have fired Neil Olshey. The team’s president of basketball operations and general manager was let go after an investigation into workplace conduct. The Blazers hired an outside firm last month to investigate workplace environment concerns stemming from allegations of misconduct involving Olshey. The Blazers promoted director of player personnel Joe Cronin to interim general manager.

In other NBA news:
– Wesley Matthews is back with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks signed the swingman Friday, bringing him back after he spent the 2019-20 season with them. Matthews has averaged 12.6 points in 849 games over 12 seasons.

CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago Blackhawks forward Tyler Johnson is the second NHL player to have an unusual neck surgery. A person with knowledge of the situation says Johnson’s operation was the same artificial disk replacement surgery that Jack Eichel underwent last month. Team physician Michael Terry says the 31-year-old Johnson will be sidelined for approximately three months. Johnson has one goal and two assists in eight games in his first season with Chicago.
