SportsDay ND - 12/23

December 23, 2012 - Staff Blog
With blogging machine Ryan Collingwood en route to Cour d'Alene, Idaho, for Christmas vacation, I (Daniel Allar) am manning the daily posts linking you to the North Dakota sports scene.

Here's what you'll find in papers on Dec. 23:

Our best: Collingwood had this story on Minot High goaltender Karlee Galvin, who has returned to the ice after sitting out last season following a life-altering concussion. ...  Dustin Monke and Royal McGregor of the Dickinson Press helped us out with stories of Minot High's boys and girls hoops wins over the Midgets.

Around the West Region: Bismarck Tribune sports editor Lou Babiarz picks his top five stories of 2012. The stories include the Dakota Wizards' move to California, Virgil Hill's entry into the Boxing Hall of Fame and an absurdly close finish at the boys state swimming meet. We'll have our top 10 stories of the year in the Minot Daily News' New Year's Day section. ... Mark Jones of the Williston Herald rounded up the Tioga Tip-off girls basketball tournament, which Ray won convincingly over Trinity Christian. ... Former Killdeer High School and Colorado University basketball player Austin Dufault (currently playing in Czech Republic) was the Dickinson Press' No. 6 story of the year. Monke also wrote a more extensive story regarding Dufault.

Around the East Region: Wyndmere-Lidgerwood's Jeff Illies broke the 1,500-point mark this week, as noted in this story by the Wahpeton Daily News. Nothing else too noteworthy to glean from the eastern newspapers in terms of prep coverage from Saturday night.

NDSU: The Forum's Jeff Kolpack has a story about the NDSU Alumni Association.

UND: The North Dakota women's basketball team dropped a 53-41 decision at Northern Colorado. The squad is now 4-6 overall and 0-2 in the Big Sky.

Of Note: It's not quite ND news, but a Dakota school pulled a major upset in college hoops. South Dakota State knocked off No. 16 New Mexico behind star guard Nate Wolters' 28 points. Also, my Louisville Cardinals did work on the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky, 78-55, for those who care.
