The Finlandia University women’s basketball team dropped a 97-68 decision at Webster University last night. The Gorlocks grabbed an early lead, then dominated the second and third quarters. Julia Daavettila led the Lions with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Julia Nordstrom had 13 points, and Kelsie Richards had eight points, 11 rebounds and blocked four shots.

The Lions men’s team also fell behind early, and lost 104-60 at eighth-ranked Wisconsin-Oshkosh last night.  Austin Carlson, Myles Ellington and Ricky Watson each scored 10 points.

The Detroit Red Wings ended their seven-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets last night. Gustav Nyquist had two goals and an assist. Justin Abdelkader, Darren Helm and David Booth also scored. Jimmy Howard stopped 25 shots. The Wings are off until Saturday afternoon, when they entertain the St. Louis Blues. Pregame coverage will begin at 12:40 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Detroit Pistons visit the Bucks in Milwaukee tonight. Tip-off is at 8:00 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Detroit Tigers have signed outfielder Leonys Martín to a one-year deal worth 1.75-million dollars. Martín played a few games for the Mariners and the Cubs last season, but spent most of his time with Seattle’s Triple-A Team at Tacoma, where he hit .306. He bats left-handed, and will compete for the center field job.

The Tigers also announced the signing of four players to minor-league deals yesterday. They include outfielder Jim Adduci, who split time between the Tigers and the Toledo Mud Hens last season.

Our high school basketball coverage continues tomorrow night, when the Jeffers boys play at Dollar Bay-Tamarack City. The pregame show will begin around 7:00 on KBear 102.3 and KBear102.com.
