The Finlandia University women’s basketball team won its fourth straight game last night, defeating Saint Scholastica 57-55 in a thriller. After Bailey Froberg’s three-pointer with 11 seconds remaining gave the Lions a one-point lead, Finlandia forced a turnover, and Carsyn Osterman sank a free throw to seal the win. Katie Lundeen scored 16 for the Lions.

The Finlandia men’s team fell 96-69 to the Saints. Dylan Underwood led the Lions with 26 points.

NHL

The Detroit Red Wings suffered their sixth straight loss last night, 4-2 to the Minnesota Wild. Filip Zadina scored both Detroit goals in the first period. Jimmy Howard stopped 29 shots.

Because of the NHL All-Star break, the Wings will be off until they visit the New York Rangers a week from tomorrow. Coverage begins at 6:40 on 99.3 The Lift.

NBA

The Detroit Pistons cruised to a 127-106 victory the Sacramento Kings last evening. Christian Wood led Detroit with 23 points. Derrick Rose added 22. So did Reggie Jackson, who played 19 minutes in his first game since the first week of the season. Andre Drummond missed the contest, as he deals with aftereffects from the blow to the face he took in Detroit’s last game, that required stitches in his mouth, and cost him a tooth.

The Pistons host the Memphis Grizzlies tomorrow night. Coverage begins at 6:35 on 993.The Lift.

NFL

Mike Pettine will continue as defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay ranked ninth in the league in scoring defense this season.

MLB

The Detroit Tigers added some pitching depth yesterday by signing veteran lefthander Héctor Santiago to a minor-league deal. Santiago struggled last season, compiling a 6.68 ERA with the Mets and White Sox.

Detroit also filled its vacant managerial spot at its Double-A Erie farm club. Arnie Beyeler will replace Mike Rabelo, who has joined the major league staff of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Beyeler was the Baltimore Orioles’ first base coach last season, following three years at the same position for the Boston Red Sox. He has 15 seasons of minor league managerial experience, and played six seasons in Detroit’s minor-league system in the late ’80s and early ’90s.
