Becoming a Christian does not make life easier. Becoming a Christian makes you acceptable to God. Therefore, we can endure rotten things with joy because our biggest problem has been solved.

    FARGO, ND - Anna Holen used to feel starstruck by former North Dakota Miss Basketball award winners. Little did she know that one day her name would be added to the list. The LaMoure-Litchville-Marion guard became the 37th Miss Basketball award winner Saturday at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex in Fargo. The award is presented annually to the top senior player in the state by the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

    Holen tallied 19 of 21 first-places votes and received 99 points based on a 5-3-1 voting scale. North Star's Stephanie Miller garnered one first-place vote and 51 points, while Fargo Davies' Raegan Linster received one first-place vote and 39 points.

    Holen guided L-L-M to 95 victories since making varsity as an eighth-grader, and led the Loboes to a Region 3 championship and a third-place finish at the state Class B tournament as a freshman in 2015. The 5-foot-8 Holen posted per-game averages of 20.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 steals this season, helping the Loboes to a 20-4 record in a region that included four teams ranked inside the state's top seven.

    "She's a competitor. She's one of those kids who wants to win, and when she's out there she does whatever it takes," said LaMoure-Litchville-Marion basketball coach Mitch Carlson. "The leadership she's brought both on and off the court has been tremendous. I feel sort of humbled, because I got to coach one of the better basketball players in the state."

    Miss Basketball adds to an already impressive list of accolades Holen has achieved, including the NDHSAA Distinguished Student award and the Class B Senior Athlete of the Year in volleyball. Holen was the catalyst to the Loboes winning three straight state championships in volleyball, which is the sport she's decided to continue playing collegiately. Holen will follow brother Jake, and all six older siblings, by attending University of Jamestown and playing for the Jimmies.

    Miller, a 5-7 guard and Region 4 senior athlete of the year, averaged 21.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.2 steals this season for North Star. She helped the Bearcats to a pair of Region 4 championships in her career and has committed to Lake Region State College in Devils Lake.

    Linster, a 5-foot-10 forward, led the Eagles to their first East Region championship in girls basketball this season, posting per-game averages of 16 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.1 steals. The East Region senior athlete of the year has committed to Southeastern University (Fla.) of the NAIA.

    GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) - Having now played in a school-record 14 overtime games this season, it appears the University of North Dakota hockey team has learned how to thrive in those pressure situations. For the second straight Saturday, the Fighting Hawks came through under pressure in must-win games.

    Junior center Nick Jones banked his second goal of the game off the back of the left leg of Omaha goalie Evan Weninger 53 seconds into the 20-minute, sudden-death session. It gave UND a 4-3 win and sends the Fighting Hawks on to St. Paul next Friday and Saturday for the National Collegiate Hockey Conference's four-team Frozen Faceoff.
