The dates for Michigan Tech’s hockey games at Bemidji State next month have been changed. The Beavers women’s hockey is also playing at home the weekend the Huskies will be visiting. Originally, both teams were set to play Friday and Saturday, December 11th and 12th. To provide for appropriate sanitizing of the Sanford Center, those games will now be stretched out over four days. The women’s contests against Saint Cloud State will be played Thursday and Friday. The men’s games between Tech and the BSU will be played Saturday and Sunday, December 12th and 13th.
Tech opens its hockey campaign this Saturday and Sunday at Lake Superior State.
The Pistons have traded guard Bruce Brown, Jr. to the Nets. In exchange, they get Džanan Musa and a 2021 second-round pick. Musa is 21 years old. He averaged five points per game off the bench for Brooklyn last season.
The Bucks were also busy yesterday. Reports say they’ve picked up point guard Jrue Holiday from the Pelicans, in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, three first-round picks and two additional draft choices.
In another deal, Milwaukee is reportedly sending Donte Divincenzo, Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson to the Kings, in exchange for guard Bogdan Bogdanovic.
In last night’s NFL game, the Vikings held off the Bear 19-13. A late drive that could have won the game for Chicago stalled after quarterback Nick Foles was hit hard, and had to be taken off the field on a cart. After the game, Bears coach Matt Nagy said Foles’ right leg and hip were being evaluated. With backup Mitchell Trubisky nursing a shoulder injury, third-stringer Tyler Bray completed his first pass, but his next three were incomplete.

X-rays of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford’s throwing hand have shown no serious damage. Stafford said the hand was hurt during the first quarter of Sunday’s contest against Washington.
