SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (UND) – North Dakota sophomore forward B.J. Omot captured his first Summit League Men’s Basketball Peak Performer of the Week honor of the season and his career, as announced by the league office on Wednesday afternoon. Omot stood out in the game at Nebraska on Dec. 20 with 21 points, second only to Tyree Ihenacho’s 22, and a team-high eight rebounds. He remains the top scorer for the Fighting Hawks with 16.5 points per game, which is the fifth most in the Summit League. Additionally, Omot came up with a steal, a blocked shot and an assist as UND gave the Cornhuskers all they could handle in Lincoln against a Nebraska team that came into the game 9-2. North Dakota will open its Summit League slate on Friday at the Betty with a 7 p.m. tip off against St. Thomas.

Filip Gustavsson made 25 saves. Minnesota has won seven straight at home. Alex DeBrincat had a goal and an assist, and Patrick Kane pushed his goal streak to four games for the Red Wings (16-15-4) who are 1-6-0 in their past seven games. James Reimer made 25 saves.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Josh Staumont on a one-year contract on Wednesday, the team’s first major league free agency move of the offseason. Staumont, 30, pitched five seasons for the Kansas City Royals, saving eight games with a 4.01 ERA. The hard-throwing righty has 191 strikeouts in 168 1/3 innings. He had a 5.40 ERA in 21 games for Kansas City last season before landing on the injured list on June 7 and missing the rest of the season. He later underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. It’s the first major league addition for Minnesota, which won the American League Central last season and advanced to the Division Series. The team signed right-hander A.J. Alexy and utility man Niko Goodrum, both former major leaguers, to minor league deals. Meanwhile, the Twins have seen right-handed starters Sonny Gray — who was second in the Cy Young voting to Gerrit Cole — Kenta Maeda and Tyler Mahle sign contracts elsewhere this offseason. Gray agreed to a three-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, Mahle signed with World Series champion Texas and Maeda moved to division rival Detroit. Right-handed reliever Emilio Pagan also elected for free agency and agreed to a two-year deal with Cincinnati.
