ST. LOUIS, Mo.--Defensive tackle Matthew Gratzek and punter John Prelvitz were named first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference, while seven North Dakota State University student-athletes earned postseason conference honors. Gratzek was second in balloting for the MVFC Defensive Player of the Year. The all-conference team was selected by the head coaches, sports information directors and media, and announced Monday.

Defensive end Coulter Boyer, running back D.J. McNorton and offensive guard Paul Cornick were second-team picks, while cornerback Marcus Williams and wide receiver Warren Holloway were honorable mention.

North Dakota State (8-4) is scheduled to play at Big Sky champion Montana State (9-2) at 1:07 p.m. (Central) Saturday, Dec. 4, at Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman in the second round of the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs.

Western Illinois quarterback Matt Barr, a Walter Payton Award finalist, has been named the Missouri Valley Football Offensive Player of the Year. Barr led the league in pass efficiency, total offense, passing yards, passing TDs and touchdowns accounted for.

Meanwhile, for just the second time in league history a pair of Leathernecks share the league's top honors as linebacker Kyle Glazier has been tabbed as the league's Defensive Player of the Year. A finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, Glazier led the league in tackles and spent several weeks leading the nation in tackles. They are the first pair of teammates to share the league's top honors in the same year since 2007, and are just the second pair of Western teammates to earn Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year honors in the same season (the other was during 2000 when RB Charles Tharp and LB Edgerton Hartwell accomplished the feat).

Three Wolves Players Featured On 2011 All-Star Ballot

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The 2011 NBA All-Star Ballot was unveiled today during a special tip-off event in Los Angeles, the Official Host City of NBA All-Star 2011. Michael Beasley, Corey Brewer and Kevin Love will represent the Timberwolves on the ballot as fans worldwide have the opportunity to vote for their favorite players as starters for the 60th NBA All-Star Game. The 2011 NBA All-Star Game, which will air live on TNT and ESPN Radio in the U.S., and reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages, will be played at STAPLES Center on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011.

Beasley currently ranks 15th in the NBA in scoring at 22.0 points per game and has topped 25 points in each of his last five outings, the first such streak by a Wolves player in over a decade. He poured in a career-best 42 at Sacramento on Nov. 10, becoming the youngest player in franchise history with a 40-point game, and has surpassed 30 three times this season. Last night, Beasle y capped a 33-point night with the game-winning jumper from the elbow in the closing seconds.

Brewer has now scored in double figures in eight of his last nine games, averaging 11.6 points per game over that span. He's also swiped at least two steals in five of the last six games (10 of 13 on the season) and ranks seventh in the league at 2.15 thefts per game. A candidate for the league's Most Improved Award last season, Brewer more than doubled his previous career scoring average by tallying 13.0 points per game in his third season, and also established a new club record by hitting at least one three-pointer in 33 consecutive games.

Love is the league's leading rebounder at 14.3 boards per game and his nine double-doubles on the season trail only the Lakers' Pau Gasol (10). Love tallied career highs of 31 points and a franchise-record 31 rebounds in the Nov. 12 win over New York, becoming just the 19th player in league history to record a 30/30 game and the first since Moses Malone in 1982. Three days earlier, Love posted 23 points, 24 rebounds and five assists in a narrow defeat to the Lakers to become the youngest player with a 20/20/5 game since Shaquille O'Neal in 1993.

Beasley, Brewer and Love are all looking for their first NBA All-Star Game appearance.

Balloting for Wolves fans starts in-arena tomorrow night when the Wolves host the Los Angeles Lakers at 7 p.m. Fans can cast their votes at each NBA arena; in 20 languages on NBA.com; and through mobile phones by texting the player's last nam e to 6-9-6-2-2 ("MYNBA") or by visiting m.nba.com on any wireless carrier. Balloting will conclude Jan. 23, with the starters announced live on TNT on Jan. 27 during a special one-hour pregame show at 7 pm ET featuring Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.

The NBA All-Star ballot lists 120 players – 60 each from the Eastern and Western conferences – with 24 guards, 24 forwards, and 12 centers from each conference comprising the list. Voters select two guards, two forwards and one center from each conference. The 120 players on the ballot were selected by a panel of media who regularly cover the NBA: J.A. Adande (ESPN.com), Marv Albert (TNT), Art Garcia (NBA.com) Marc Spears (Yahoo! Sports), Doug Smith (The Toronto Star) and Ian Thomsen (Sports Illustrated).

NBA All-Star 2011 in Los Angeles will bring together some of the most talented and passionate players in the league’s history for a global celebration of the game. The week leading up to the 60th NBA All-Star Game will feature a full slate of community-enhancing activities, fan festivals and events, including the NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service, the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam, and NBA All-Star Saturday Night presented by State Farm. NBA All-Star Jam Session presented by adidas, the hugely successful interactive basketball celebration, will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center. Los Angeles and the STAPLES Center will host NBA All-Star 2011, marking the fifth time The City of Angels and the second time STAPLES Center will be the site of the annual celebration. STAPLES Center last played host to NBA All-Star in 2004, and L.A. also hosted the All-Star Game in 1963, 1972, and 1983.

Bemidji State inks two during early signing period

BEMIDJI, Minn. - The Bemidji State University men's ice hockey
program today announced the signing of defensemen Matt Prapavessis
(Oakville, Ontario) and Sam Windle (Maple Grove, Minn.) to National
Letters of Intent. Both signed NCAA National Letters of Intent with the
Beavers during the early signing period and will join the Bemidji State
program for the 2011-12 campaign.

Prapavessis, a six-foot, two-inch blueliner for the United State Hockey
League's (USHL) Lincoln Stars and the addition of the 6-4 Windle, a
defenseman for the Chicago Steel, also of the USHL, brings an obvious
increase in sheer size to the BSU line up for 2010-11.

"Both Matt Prapavessis and Sam Windle bring great length, talent, and
presence to our blue line," said BSU assistant coach and recruiting
coordinator Ted Belisle. "They both are talented defenders with USHL
experience and we are excited to welcome them to Beaver Hockey."

Matt Prapavessis (D, 6-2, 189; 6/1/1991; Oakville, Ontario) is in his
first year with Lincoln and through 12 games, he has netted two goals
and four assists for six points to lead all Stars' defensemen, while
he is tied for the team's lead with a pair of power-play goals.

A true offensive threat from the blue line, Prapavessis has recorded a
point in five of his first 11 games with the Stars, which includes a
season-high two-point (1-1=2) night Oct. 8 and a game-wining goal versus
Windle and Chicago Oct. 23. He has posted an assist in each of the
Stars’ last two outings helping to extend the team's winning streak
to four games. At 7-5-0, Lincoln currently sits fifth in the USHL's
Western Conference but is just four points off the pace set by
first-place Dubuque.

Prior to this season, Prapavessis spent two seasons with the
Mississauga Chargers of the Ontario Junior Hockey League. During his
time in the OJHL, he piled up 14-63=77 points, which included a
career-best 43 points (8-35=43) in 49 games to rank fourth on the
Chargers roster in 2009-10.

"Matt comes to us from Lincoln where he has had a great start to his
first year in the USHL," said Belisle. “He possesses a good ability
to run the power-play from the blue line and has the knack of creating
offense for his teammates whenever he has the puck. We are certainly
excited about his potential."

Sam Windle (D, 6-4, 200; 3/10/1992; Maple Grove, Minn.) is in his
first season with Chicago and has posted 1-1=2 points to rank second
among Steel defensemen after just 10 games played.

Windle's goal this season came in just his third game in the USHL and
stood as the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory versus Indiana. The
blueliner has posted a negative plus/minus rating in only two games this
season and carries a +5 rating into the Steels' Nov. 19 game versus
Cedar Rapids.

Windle was also selected to participate in the 2010 World Junior A
Challenge Nov. 8-14 in Princeton, British Columbia, where he helped the
United States Junior Select team to a perfect 5-0-0 record en route to
capturing the gold medal.

Windle is ranked 19th in a recent release of NHL Central Scouting's
rankings of Tier I Junior A leagues in North America, setting the future
Beavers up as a potential NHL pick in the upcoming draft.

A native of Maple Grove, Minn., Windle played high school hockey for
former Beaver captain Mark Phenow (1998-2001) at Osseo High School,
where he recorded seven goals and 19 assists for 26 points, finished the
season with a plus/minus rating of +32 and scored in 12 of the first 14
games as a junior. He helped lead the Orioles to fifth place in the
North Suburban Conference and a trip to the sectional playoffs with an
overall record of 15-9-3 in 2009-10.

Listed at 6-4, Windle will be one of just four players on record at BSU
to measure over 6-3--a group that includes BSU great Joel Otto
(1980-84). Windle also joins a group of seven current Beavers that hail
from the state of Minnesota.

"Windle is an exciting prospect that is blooming as a player right
now." Belisle added, "He is a tall, athletic defenseman who has the
necessary skills to be very successful in the WCHA. As a defenseman
that can play in any situation, we are excited about his talent and we
are very happy to have him as a part of our program."

Prapavessis and Windle are the 19th and 20th early-period signees at
Bemidji State since the program made the jump to Division I in 1999.
That group includes senior Matt Read (F, Ilderton, Ontario), junior
Darcy Findlay (F., Bristol, Quebec), sophomores Jordan George (F,
Madison, Wis.), Matt Hartmann (F, Hugo, Minn.) and Aaron McLeod (F,
Ottawa, Ontario) and freshmen Radoslav Illo (F, Bystrica, Slovakia) and
Jeff Jubinville (F, Edmonton, Alberta).

The Beavers (2-5-1; 2-5-1 WCHA) continue Western Collegiate Hockey
Association play this weekend as they travel to No. 14 University of
Denver for the first league series between the teams. The two-game set
will begin Friday at 8:35 p.m. (CST) with the finale scheduled for an
8:05 p.m. opening face off Saturday.

NSIC Recognizes Three Golden Eagle Football Players with All-Conference Honors

The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) has announced that three UM-Crookston Golden Eagle Football players earned All-Conference recognition following the 2010 season. Cecil Brown (DB, 5-10, 205, So., Edison, Ga.), Cody Hendrickson (DB, 5-10, 185, Jr., Wright, Minn.) and Scott Steuck (OL, 6-6, 290, Jr., Dassel, Minn.) were all recognized as NSIC North All-Conference Honorable Mention team members.

Brown started in all 11 games for the Golden Eagles. He led the defense in tackles with 92 (46 solo, 46 assisted), over 30 more than the next UMC defender. The 92 tackles earned him the fourth spot on the single season tackles list. He earned 1.5 tackles for a loss, grabbed one interception for 32 yards, broke-up two passes and defended three passes.

Hendrickson started in all eleven games this season. He finished second on the team in tackles with 60 (43 solo, 17 assisted) and led the team with four interceptions for 81 yards. The four interceptions tied him for third place on the single season record list. He broke up four passes and defended against eight others.

Steuck started in all eleven games this season at the left tackle position on an offensive line that was decimated by injuries. He was the key blocker for the Golden Eagle running attack that accumulated 1,157 yards and averaged over 100 yards per game.
