In high school hockey tonight, Hancock entertains Negaunee. Our broadcast will begin at 6:40 on KBear 102.3 and KBear102.com.

Calumet hockey player Tanner Rowe has been tendered by the Maryland Black Bears of the North American Hockey League. The tender means that he’ll have a chance to try out for the Black Bears, which is a Junior Hockey Team that competes in the North American Hockey League. Each team in the league gets to tender a handful of prospects they like, rather than wait to see if those players are available in the league’s amateur draft.

Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

Both Michigan Tech basketball teams will host Lake Superior State tonight. The women’s game will begin at 5:30, and the men’s contest at 7:30.

Both Northern Michigan University squads will Ferris State University this evening.

The Michigan Tech soccer program has introduced two new recruits. Kiersen Korienek is a forward from Grandvill, Michigan. Mikayla Marshalek is a defender from Rochester, Michigan

Finlandia University

The Finlandia University men’s basketball team lost 116-70 to Wisconsin-Superior last night. Dylan Underwood led the Lions with 20 points.


The Detroit Red Wings host the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow. Because of Finlandia University hockey, Wings coverage begins at 7:10 on KBear 102.3.


The Detroit Pistons surprised the Boston Celtics 116-103 last evening. Sekou Doumbouya and Svi Mykhailiuk both set career bests for Detroit – Doumbouya with 24 points, and Mykhailiuk with 21. Derrick Rose added 22. 

The Pistons visit the Atlanta Hawks Saturday.


Detroit Lions great Alex Karras has finally been named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Karras was one of the greatest defensive tackles of the 1950s. His election was delayed, though, because he was suspended for a season for betting on games. He died in 2012. Karras is one of a group of 10 senior-era players who will join the hall in a special NFL centennial class.
