Western Illinois maintained an advantage over SIU Edwardsville in the opening nine minutes of play before the Cougars offense went on a run to close out the first half and never looked back recording the 68-58 win.
WOLTERS HONORED – AGAIN…Oakland center Corey Petros and South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters were named Summit League Men’s Basketball Players of the Week.
Wolters averaged 20.2 points, 7.0 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game during the week. He recorded a pair of double-doubles at the 2K Sports Classic benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project. Against Hofstra, Wolters poured in 25 points and added a career-high 10 rebounds. The following day against Marshall, he scored 22 points and dished out 10 assists. Wolters also averaged two steals per game during the week and compiled a 3.5 assist/turnover ratio.
Petros opened the week with 17 points and 12 rebounds against Boise State before a 19-point, seven-rebound effort against Pittsburgh.
AP MEN’S POLL…Indiana is still a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll and Louisville is again a solid second. Then come the changes, with Kentucky dropping five spots to eighth.
The Hoosiers (3-0) receive 46 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Cardinals (5-0) get the other 19 No. 1 votes.
Ohio State and Michigan both move up one place to third and fourth, while Duke, which beat Kentucky, jumps from ninth to fifth. Syracuse, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and Arizona round out the Top Ten.
Oklahoma State, at No. 20, and Colorado, at 23, are the week's newcomers, replacing Notre Dame and Wisconsin. The Cowboys (4-0) were last ranked during the 2006-07 season. Colorado (4-0) was last in the Top 25 when the Buffaloes were ranked for the final eight polls of 1996-97.
AP WOMEN’S POLL…Stanford is the new No. 1 team in the nation, barely edging Connecticut for the top spot in The Associated Press women's basketball poll.
The Cardinal jumps from fourth after beating former No. 1 Baylor 71-69 on Friday night, ending the Lady Bears' 42-game winning streak. Baylor, which was first in the previous 21 polls, falls to third.
Stanford receives 21 first place votes, while Connecticut has 17. Baylor gets the other one. It's the Cardinal's first time at No. 1 since the final poll of the 2005 season.
Duke is fourth and Notre Dame fifth. The Blue Devils were the last team to jump from the fourth spot to No. 1. They did it in 2003 after beating then-No. 1 UConn by a point.
UCLA, Kansas, Dayton and North Carolina all move into the Top 25, while Delaware, Texas A&M, Miami and Georgetown fall out.
BOHL NOMINATED…North Dakota State football coach Craig Bohl is one of 20 candidates for the Eddie Robinson Award, which goes to the top FCS coach of the year.
The coach of the defending FCS champion Bison continued to set a high standard in the regular season, leading a 10-1 squad to a second straight Missouri Valley Football Conference championship and the No. 1 seed in the FCS playoffs. His team's defense has been the nation's best for a second straight season.
Others nominated are Dino Babers of Eastern Illinois, Dick Biddle of Colgate, Brock Spack of Illinois State, and Tim Walsh of Cal Poly.
Gagliardi announced his decision on the team website. He coached for 64 years, 60 of them at the private school in central Minnesota, and retires with a record of 489-138-11. He surpassed Eddie Robinson for the career coaching victories record in 2003 and won four national titles at St. John's.
He gained fame for an unconventional coaching style that included no tackling in practice.
Gagliardi's decision comes after the Johnnies finished a rough season with a 5-5 record and went 3-5 in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. He says in a statement that he "just can't do the job at the level" he once did.

BIG 12 CHAOS…The loss by Kansas State over the weekend helped upend the national championship picture. It also set up potential chaos in the Big 12.
Kansas State could still win the Big 12, but the Wildcats' 52-24 loss at Baylor on Saturday night by and large ended their chance of playing for the national title. And it set up the possibility for a four-way tie in the conference between Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas.
If that happens, all would be declared Big 12 co-champions.
There would still be scenarios that would have to be settled to determine who would get the league's BCS berth in the Fiesta Bowl, if not in the championship game.
NO MORE SOCCER…The South Dakota State Soccer Association voted to end its sponsorship of high school soccer after the 2014 season Sunday.
After the 2014 season concludes, the only high school soccer available in South Dakota will be to play with teams sanctioned by the South Dakota High School Activities Association.
