GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Smith stopped 21 shots, Lauri Korpikoski and Martin Hanzal both scored, and the Phoenix Coyotes extended their point streak to five games with a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild last night. Korpikoski scored his fourth goal — all against Finnish goaltenders — in the first, and Hanzal got his third in three games in the second. Smith was sharp for his second start in a row, giving up a goal on a turnover in the second and fighting off a power play by the Wild in the final minutes.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gabe Rogers scored 22 points, 16 in the second half, and Michael Dunn made two free throws with 7 seconds remaining to help Northern Arizona beat Sacramento State 62-61 last night. Max Jacobsen added 16 points for the Lumberjacks, who led only in the first two minutes and the last two minutes of the game. Sacramento State led 51-37 with 11:17 to play after John Dickson's 3-pointer. Northern Arizona went on a 14-2 run, capped by Dunn's dunk with 5:15 left to cut the deficit.

PHOENIX (AP) — Scottsdale police say Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley was cited last month on suspicion of speeding, driving on a suspended Arizona license and driving without a vehicle license plate or registration. The Suns issued a statement Monday saying they discussed the matter with Beasley "and at this time do not believe any further action by the club is warranted." A police report says Beasley was stopped Jan. 25 on suspicion of driving 71 mph in a 45. He's due in court Feb. 11.

(AP) — Brandon Webb, who won the NL Cy Young Award in 2006 and was one of the top pitchers in baseball before being beset by arm injuries, is retiring. The right-hander's agents from Millennium Sports Management confirmed last night that Webb was calling it a career. The 33-year-old Webb hasn't pitched in the majors since 2009 because of shoulder problems. He came up with Arizona in 2003 and had a 2.84 ERA in 180 innings. The Kentucky native threw four innings with the Diamondbacks in 2009.
