Click on the highlighted scores for more game details.

High School

The Houghton girls basketball season ended with a 51-36 loss to Frankenmuth in the Division Two state quarterfinals last night at Gaylord. The Eagles’ stiff defense held the Gremlins to just five points in the first quarter. After trailing by 10 at halftime, Houghton narrowed the gap to three points in the third quarter, but couldn’t keep up the momentum. Gwen Markham led the Gremlins with 13 points, and Meghan Trewhella added 12.

Baraga advanced to the state semifinals by eliminating Mackinaw City 40-36. The Vikings will face two-time defending state champion Fowler tomorrow at 5:30 at the Breslin Center in East Lansing.

In the boys tournament, Jeffers will play Stephenson for a Division Four regional championship tonight at 7:00 at Negaunee.

College Hockey

Three Huskies have been honored with Central Collegiate Hockey Association all-conference status.

Goaltender Blake Pietila and forward Ryland Mosley were named to the All-CCHA First Team. Pietila was a unanimous selection. Defenseman Brett Thorne was placed on the All-CCHA Second Team.

College Basketball

The University of Michigan opened play in the National Invitational Tournament with a 90-80 victory over Toledo last night. The Wolverines will face Vanderbilt in the second round.


The Red Wings fell to the Predators 2-1 last night. Alex Chiasson scored Detroit’s only goal late in the third period. Ville Husso made 14 saves.

The Wings host the Avalanche Saturday. Coverage will begin at 12:45 on 99.3 The Lift.


The Pistons lost to the Wizards 117-97 last evening. Killian Hayes led Detroit with 20 points.

The Pistons host the Nuggets tomorrow night. Coverage begins at 6:35 on 99.3 The Lift.


The Tigers scored five runs in the eighth inning, and defeated the Red Sox 6-2 yesterday. Starter Michael Lorenzen pitched into the third inning, and gave up five hits, including two solo home runs. Prospect Jake Holton drove in two runs.

The Tigers have today off.

The Brewers had yesterday off, and will face the Diamondbacks tonight. Brandon Woodruff will start for Milwaukee.

Diamond Sports Group has filed for bankruptcy protection. The division of Sinclair Broadcasting that operates under the name Bally Sports couldn’t make a recent interest payment on its nearly-$9 billion debt. It also owes $1 billion in rights fees for the teams its networks cover, including 14 MLB clubs. Bally Sports Detroit broadcasts Tigers games, along with Red Wings and Pistons contests.

Major League Baseball issued a statement expressing confidence that coverage will continue through Bally Sports during the bankruptcy process. If it doesn’t, the league says it is prepared to step in with streamed coverage through MLB.com.

The network has been hurt by a steep drop in subscriptions to cable television and satellite services that carry its broadcasts.


The NFL carousel continues. The Lions have signed defensive lineman John Cominsky to a two-year deal. After he was claimed off waivers from the Falcons, Cominsky set career highs in sacks and tackles for Detroit last season. The Lions also re-signed cornerback Will Harris to a one-year deal.

Former Bears running back David Montgomery has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal with the Lions. That could mean Detroit will part ways with free-agent running back Jamaal Williams. The Lions have also reportedly agreed to a one-year contract with 49ers free agent cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, who missed much of last season with an ACL injury.
