MTU

The Michigan Tech women’s basketball team has announced its first commitment for the 2021-2022 season. Isabella Lenz is a guard from Prescott, Wisconsin. She averaged 23 points per game in her junior season.

Northern Michigan University added to new players on the opening day of the early signing window. C.J. Romero is a point guard from Brookfield, Wisconsin. Alyssa Nimz is a forward from Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men’s and women’s basketball season will begin January 7th. The GLIAC Council of Presidents and Chancellors approved a modified schedule for athletic competition on Tuesday.

The basketball schedule includes only conference games, and will be released this afternoon. The league also granted permission to member schools to schedule non-conference contests before January 1st, within NCAA guidelines.

The women’s soccer and volleyball seasons that were wiped out this fall will be shifted to next spring, with volleyball set to begin February 19th, and soccer March 19th. The fall women’s tennis season will be played in conjunction with the spring men’s tennis season.

There will be no official GLIAC football season, but schools may schedule up to five spring games on their own.

NHL

The National Hockey League is considering realigning its conferences for the upcoming season. Commissioner Gary Bettman disclosed some of the options the league is discussing for its upcoming season as part of a panel presentation on Tuesday. He said a one-year divisional realignment could help teams deal with travel restrictions between the United States and Canada. He also said that the league hopes to use home rinks as much as possible, but that the schedule will be adjusted to minimize travel. The NHL hopes to begin its season January 1st, but negotiations between team owners and players have not been completed.

NFL

In tonight’s NFL contest, the Colts visit the Titans. Coverage begins at 8:00 on 99.3 The Lift.
