Roberts signs with BSU
Melissa Roberts, starting guard for the 10th ranked Staples-Motley Cardinals girls' basketball team, will play next year for the Bemidji State University Beavers.
Roberts, a 5-foot-9 guard, signed a letter of intent to play for BSU. Last year she averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.9 steals and 1.7 assists as a senior. She led the Cardinals with 135 total rebounds and shot 40.1 percent from the field and 74 percent from the foul line.
"We think Melissa is a perfect fit for our style of play," said Bemidji State University women's basketball coach Mike Powers. "She might be the steal of this recruiting class. She has a great deal of untapped potential and is already polished enough to step in and contribute right away."

Rain puts Sorenstam's quest for record on hold
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Annika Sorenstam's quest for a record sixth straight title isn't exactly going according to plan.
First she shot a 5-over-par 76 on Thursday, putting her in jeopardy of missing the cut at the Michelob Ultra Open. Then, after a storm Friday morning pushed scores higher and helped her make up some ground, the second round was washed out.
"We make the decision not based on who is playing or where they are, but what is best for everybody," LPGA rules official Jim Haley said. "We just didn't feel like it was going to be fair."
So Sorenstam, along with everybody else in the field, were to return to Kingsmill on Saturday for the second round. The cut was to be made after that.
