MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State men’s basketball slipped eight spots in the latest NABC Top 25 poll released today, checking in at No. 23 after a pair of setbacks last week. The Beavers (18-6 overall, 13-5 NSIC) lost on a last-second shot at No. 9 Minnesota State Moorhead on Thursday, then fell to a late comeback by St. Cloud State on Sunday at home. Despite the two setbacks, the Beavers remained ranked nationally for the fifth straight week, sliding from No. 15 a week ago to the No. 23 spot with 46 points. Minot State is one of four teams from the NSIC ranked in the latest Top 25 as they join No. 5 Minnesota State, Mankato, No. 8 MSU Moorhead, and No. 17 Minnesota Duluth in this week’s national poll. Minot State will battle the 17th-ranked Bulldogs at the MSU Dome on Friday night at 7:30 p.m., part of a men’s and women’s doubleheader that starts at 5:30 p.m.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State men’s hockey team is adding some additional punch on the defensive end with the addition of a familiar face on the Beaver blue line. Head coach Wyatt Waselenchuk is pleased to announce that former Minot State defenseman Eric Soar has rejoined the team for the remainder of the 2023-24 season. “We are super excited to have Eric rejoin our program,” Waselenchuk said. “Our staff has always kept it in the back of our minds that he’s still enrolled at MSU and obtaining his master’s degree. After an incredibly unfortunate past month or so for us in terms of injuries, and with this last weekend’s performance as a team, we knew we needed to address our back-end for the remainder of the season.”
Soar played in 139 games over four seasons for the Beavers and helped anchor Minot State’s defense as the team marched through the 2023 ACHA National Tournament to claim the program’s third national title. Soar finished his first four years with the Beavers with 15 career goals, which included three game-winners, and 66 career assists, including one at last year’s national tournament. Soar will be back in uniform for the Beavers (26-6-1 overall) when they host Simon Fraser in a pair of exhibition games at the Maysa Arena this weekend.

Kirill Kaprizov had an assist, and the Wild’s top line of Eriksson El, Boldy and Kaprizov have seven goals and 10 assists in the last three games. Arizona has lost seven straight. The Wild killed all three Coyotes’ power play opportunities and have killed 29 of 32 penalties in the last nine games. The Wild host Buffalo on Saturday.
