Before Frese became an NCAA title-winning coach at Maryland, she had a one-year stay with the Golden Gophers, whom she directed to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2002.

Outside of a trip to the Mall of America, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound combo guard says he doesn't remember much about visiting the North Star State. But despite his lack of familiarity with Minnesota, McNeil is “really excited” to spend the next four years of his life there. The East Baltimore native and Vermont Academy senior committed to the Golden Gophers on Wednesday, becoming the first commitment of the Richard Pitino era. “It feels really good,” McNeil said.

Sophomore forward Jamie Ruttle had 14 points and eight rebounds as the visiting Canisius women's basketball team held off a late UMES comeback to win, 45-43, on Monday. The Hawks (0-3) went into halftime trailing by three, but they went through a scoreless spell of nearly nine minutes to start the second half as the Griffins (1-2) built a 35-25 lead. The second-half slump highlighted a night in which UMES shot only 20.4 percent from the field. Junior guard-forward Chelsea Sanders scored seven of her game-high 15 points in the second half to help UMES climb back into the game.
