• South Dakota State forward Megan Waytashek, a sophomore from Lino Lakes, was named Summit League women's basketball player of the week. Her highlight was scoring a career-high 30 points, including the winning putback as time expired in a 66-64 victory over Fort Wayne on Saturday.

• Winona State co-offensive coordinator AJ Blazek is leaving the Warriors to become Western Illinois' offensive line coach and running game coordinator.

• The St. Paul Saints re-signed righthanded pitcher Luke Anderson, a Savage native who was 5-3 with a 3.28 ERA in 14 games last season.
