Timmer’s 4-point play at buzzer lifts Drake

Sports

February 18th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Reed Timmer completed a 4-point play with 1.8 seconds left in the game to cap a 20-point outing in Drake’s 67-63 win over Missouri State on Sunday.

Graham Woodward was left open in the corner for a 3-pointer to give Drake a 63-62 lead with 13.8 to go. After Alize Johnson made 1 of 2 free throws, Timmer lost control of it on a dribble through his legs, but regained it and launched a deep 3-pointer just before the buzzer.

Nick McGlynn and De’Antae McMurray each added nine points for Drake (16-13, 10-6 Missouri Valley Conference). McMurray made an off-balance jumper at the buzzer to close the first half with a 35-25 lead. Alize Johnson had 14 points and 16 rebounds and J.T. Miller added 14 points for Missouri State (17-12, 7-9).

Most of MSU’s bench was removed in the second half after going onto the court to help Dixon up after a hard foul.

Iowa trounces Iowa State 35-6

Sports

February 18th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — First-year coach Kevin Dresser came to Iowa State to turn it into a program that could finally beat Iowa. Sunday’s annual dual meet in Ames was a reminder that it’s going to take more than one year to compete with the Hawkeyes.
Seventh-ranked Iowa trounced host Iowa State 35-6 in wrestling for its 14th consecutive win in the series. The Hawkeyes have won 29 of the last 30 meetings and 53 of the last 57 — but rarely have things gone as poorly as they did for Iowa State on Sunday.

Freshman Spencer Lee set the tone for Iowa, opening the meet with a 40-second pin. Seven consecutive Hawkeye wins followed before forfeiting at 197 pounds — a move that infuriated Dresser — to give Iowa State its only points. Alex Marinelli also notched a pin and heavyweight Sam Stoll closed out the rout with a major decision.

Dresser, who is signed to a seven-year contract worth $2.25 million plus incentives, is just the latest coach to try and turn around a proud program that produced Olympic champions like Dan Gable, Cael Sanderson and most recently Jake Varner. Dresser, a former Hawkeye wrestler from nearby Humboldt, left Virginia Tech to take over an Iowa State team that had fallen apart under former coach Kevin Jackson. The Cyclones scored just one point at last year’s NCAA meet and finished tied for 56th, an unusual outcome for a school with eight national championships to its credit.

In came Dresser, who brought along three assistants, Mike Zadick, Derek St. John and Brent Metcalf, that like him were highly successful wrestlers for Iowa. But having former Hawkeyes as coaches isn’t the same as having wrestlers as talented as the ones Iowa had compete on Sunday.

The Hawkeyes have five wrestlers ranked in the top-five nationally, including a potential 2020 Olympian in Lee. Iowa State doesn’t have anyone ranked in the top 10 — and Dresser said that Iowa’s reputation got to a few of his athletes as well. This was Iowa State’s second-straight rout at the hands of an in-state rival, as the Cyclones lost to Northern Iowa 31-7 on Feb. 10.

Only scoring on a forfeit showed how far Iowa State is from being competitive with top-tier programs. Dresser also focused on Iowa State’s work on the recruiting trail a day after Iowa’s iconic state wrestling meet wrapped up — and he closed his press conference by issuing a promise for the next Hawkeyes-Cyclones dual meet in Ames set for 2020. “This will be a different day here, next time it’s in Ames. I’m just telling you that. It’ll be a different day,” Dresser said.

Wade leads Kansas State to 78-66 win over Iowa State

Sports

February 17th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — A week ago, in the same arena, the Kansas State Wildcats were tied at the half with Texas Tech and could not close the deal. They were presented with the same opportunity on Saturday this time they did close the deal.
Dean Wade nearly grabbed a triple-double in Kansas State’s 78-66 victory over Iowa State. Wade shot 9 of 13 for 22 points while grabbing eight rebounds and collecting nine assists.

Joining Wade in double-figure scoring was Barry Brown, who scored 16 second-half points for a total of 20, and Xavier Sneed, who scored 17 points on seven shots. After a slow start, Iowa State (13-13, 4-10) managed to get the game close and tied it several times but could not ever capture the lead. Cameron Lard scored 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting for the Cyclones.

The loss by Iowa State will guarantee that the Cyclones will have a losing conference record for the first time in three seasons under coach Steve Prohm.

Iowa State hosts TCU on Wednesday.

Indiana rallies, holds off Iowa 84-82

Sports

February 17th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Indiana survived one of its strangest games of the season and kept its winning streak alive with the Big Ten tournament less than two weeks away. Still, the Hoosiers needed a record-setting performance from Robert Johnson to hold off the reeling Hawkeyes.

Johnson scored a career-high 29 points on nine 3s, which tied the school record, and Indiana rallied from an early 13-point deficit and beat Iowa 84-82 for its fourth straight victory.

Devonte Green had 18 points on four 3s for the Hoosiers (16-12, 9-7 Big Ten), who also blew a 13-point lead before Freddie McSwain Jr. hit the game-winning basket on a layup with 46 seconds left.

Tyler Cook was really good for Iowa (12-17, 3-13), scoring 28 points and 10 rebounds. But he missed a put-back at the buzzer that would’ve forced overtime. The Hawkeyes have lost five straight.

The Hawkeyes can score with anyone. It’s their defense that’ll need to be fixed in the offseason. The Hoosiers were wide open on many of those tries beyond the arc, allowing multiple players beyond Johnson to get into a groove from the perimeter, but McCaffery was especially frustrated about his team’s defense on Johnson and Green. Still, Iowa deserves credit for making a game of it until the final buzzer sounded.

Iowa plays at Minnesota on Wednesday.
