    ST. PAUL, Minn. (MSU) - Minot State senior Tyler Rudolph was named to the 2017-18 Division II Conference Commissioners Association All-Central Region first team today. Rudolph, who was named Second Team All-Central Region last year, becomes the first Minot State player to garner first team honors since the Beavers made the move to NCAA Division II.

    The first and second teams were selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America from the region. The Central Region consists of 42 basketball programs from the NSIC, the Mid-America Conference and the Great American Conference.

    Rudolph capped a brilliant career by being selected as the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Player of the Year as well as earning First Team All-NSIC honors. Rudolph led the Beavers in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage. He is currently third in the NSIC averaging 21.0 points per game, ranks fifth in the conference averaging 7.7 rebounds per contest and is third in the league shooting 58.4 percent from the floor.

    Rudolph broke the Minot State career scoring record when he tallied 13 points against Upper Iowa on Jan. 27 in the Minot State Dome and finished his career with 1,987 points. He also broke the MSU career rebounding record when he collected eight rebounds at Wayne State on Dec. 9 and he totaled 921 in his career.

     TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have finalized a $12 million, one-year contract with right-hander Lance Lynn, another patient, low-risk move toward strengthening their pitching staff. The deal was announced by the Twins today, and Lynn will be introduced at a news conference on Tuesday before taking the mound against the Baltimore Orioles inb Fort Myers.
 
     After missing the 2016 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Lynn went 11-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 33 starts for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2017 last year. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Lynn was an All-Star in 2012. He will join fellow newcomer Jake Odorizzi in the rotation, likely with Jose Berrios, Ervin Santana and Kyle Gibson.
 
     To make room on the roster, the Twins released right-hander Anibal Sanchez on Sunday after a three-week stint with the club. Sanchez gets $403,226 in termination pay rather than his $2.5 million salary.

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Virginia remains the unanimous No. 1 in the final AP Top 25 poll of the season, while Kansas jumped to No. 4 after winning the Big 12 Tournament.
 
     The Cavaliers earned all 65 first-place votes in today's poll to remain on top for the fifth straight week. Virginia completed a 20-1 run against Atlantic Coast Conference teams by winning the league tournament, helping the Cavs secure the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament field unveiled Sunday night.
 
     The top four teams in the AP poll matched the selection committee's No. 1 seeds. Villanova won the Big East Tournament and stayed at No. 2, while Xavier was third and Kansas jumped five spots to fourth. Further down, Kentucky re-entered at No. 18 after winning the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

     NEW YORK (AP) - UConn finishes No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll for the fifth straight year. The Huskies enter the NCAA Tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team. They received all 32 votes from the national media panel today.
 
     It's the 15th time in school history that UConn is No. 1 in final poll of the season. The Huskies remained perfect, winning the American Athletic Conference championship Tuesday night. Nine times they ended as the top-ranked team, the Huskies went on to win the national championship, including 2013-16.
 
     Baylor, Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame followed UConn in the poll. Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, UCLA and Ohio State round out the first 10 teams.
 
     Most of the Top 25 teams finished playing before the week began and the only change from last week's poll was Maryland and Missouri switching places at No. 16 and 17.

     OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics landed a new starting catcher, finalizing a $6.5 million, one-year contract with free agent Jonathan Lucroy. The 31-year-old two-time All-Star batted .265 with six home runs and 40 RBIs in 123 games last season for Texas and Colorado, which acquired him on July 30.
 
     Bruce Maxwell, the first major leaguer to kneel for the national anthem last year following NFL players' leads, had been the projected starter before the acquisition of Lucroy.
 
     Oakland designated left-hander Jairo Labourt for assignment to create roster space for Lucroy.

     METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints right tackle Zach Strief says he's retiring after 12 NFL seasons.
 
     Strief, who made a tearful announcement today, says his career far exceeded his expectations. He was a seventh-round draft choice out of Northwestern in 2006, which was coach Sean Payton's first season. He wound up being part of the most successful era in franchise history, which included a Super Bowl triumph in the 2009 season.
 
     The 34-year-old Strief was a regular reserve during much of his first five seasons, routinely rotating onto the field for tackle-eligible formations. He became a starter in 2011 on an offense that set an NFL single-season record with 7,474 yards.
 
     He remained the starting right tackle in the beginning of last season, which was cut short a knee injury.
 
     Several Saints players and coaches attended Strief's announcement, including Payton, quarterback Drew Brees, running back Mark Ingram and defensive end Cameron Jordan.

     ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders are releasing cornerback Sean Smith to create more salary cap room heading into free agency. A person familiar with the move said Smith was told today that he will be let go before the start of the new league year on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't annonced the move.
 
     Smith was signed as a big-ticket free agent in 2016 to a four-year, $38 million deal. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have decided to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year.
 
     Oakland will again seek to bolster the secondary in free agency, looking for a starter at cornerback to pair with last year's first-round pick Gareon Conley.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs are releasing longtime linebacker Tamba Hali, one of the franchise's career sack leaders, a person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press.
 
     Hali has spent his entire 12-year career in Kansas City, piling up 89 1/2 sacks and at one point going to five consecutive Pro Bowls. But he had become a part-time player because of balky knees the past couple of years, and spent much of this past season on the PUP list.
 
     The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the Chiefs have not announced the move, which will save more than $7 million against the salary cap. They'll be hit with $1.7 million in dead money.
 
     The Chiefs have also waived safety Ron Parker ahead of the start of free agency this week. That move will save the cash-strapped Chiefs bout $5.3 million against the cap.

     UNDATED (AP) - Tiger Woods and Ernie Els will duel in the Presidents Cup again, this time as captains.
 
     Two people involved in the Presidents Cup tell The Associated Press that Woods and Els have agreed to be captains for the 2019 matches in Melbourne. They spoke on condition of anonymity because it has not been announced.
 
     Woods and Els are expected to be introduced as captains Tuesday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
 
     They produced the biggest moment at the Presidents Cup in 2003 in South Africa when they were picked for a sudden-death playoff. They went three holes at Fancourt until it was too dark to continue, and captains Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player agreed the event would end in a tie.

     ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Tiger Woods was one shot away from a chance to win, and the PGA Tour had its largest television audience in five years.
 
     NBC Sports Group says the final round of the Valspar Championship earned a 5.11 overnight rating, up 190 percent over the previous year and the highest-rated PGA Tour broadcast since Woods won The Players Championship in 2013. That doesn't include the majors.
 
     Woods, returning from a fourth back surgery, was one shot out of the lead going into the final round. He had a 40-foot birdie attempt on the 18th hole to force a playoff with Paul Casey and came up short.
 
     Golf Channel's two-hour window before the NBC telecast Sunday earned a 1.65 rating, its highest-rated coverage for the lead-in window since it began in 2009.
