Sports

October 16th, 2019 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State sophomore Tyrese Haliburton has been named to the five-man Preseason All-Big 12 team, which was voted on by the league’s head coaches and announced Wednesday.

Haliburton, an Oshkosh, Wisconsin native, ranked among the nation’s top freshmen in a number of categories last season. His all-around game has drawn rave reviews as he averaged 6.8 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals last season. He became one of just four freshmen in college basketball since 1992-93 to record 125 assists, 50 steals and 30 blocks.

He also ranked second nationally with a 4.46 assist-to-turnover ratio, which included a school-record 17-assist game (Southern) in which he had just one turnover.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington is heading to the World Series for the first time in 86 years after the wild-card Nationals used a seven-run first inning and Patrick Corbin’s 12-strikeout performance to hold on and beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-4 for a sweep of the NL Championship Series. The Nationals were just 19-31 in May but now they will face the Houston Astros or New York Yankees in the Fall Classic.

NEW YORK (AP) — A year after suspicions on sign stealing made headlines when a man associated with the Astros was caught pointing a cellphone into opposing dugouts, Houston is giving pitchers pause again, perhaps with nothing more than the naked eye. There’s nothing illegal about noticing a tipped pitch, and manager AJ Hinch delivered a clear message about who is at fault if Houston knows what’s coming. Hinch said before Game 3 of the AL Championship Series that it’s on pitchers to guard against it.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Derek Mason’s solution with Vanderbilt mired in a horrendous start coming off arguably the worst loss of his six seasons is work harder and stick together. Mason is confident in the coaching staff he’s got. The coach says he’s more worried about making sure his Commodores trust their training heading to their next home game against No. 22 Missouri.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Every returning member of the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues went to the White House several months after a couple of 2018 Cup champion Washington Capitals players opted not to visit President Donald Trump. Alternate captain Alex Steen says the Blues do everything as a team on and off the ice and cited it as one reason they captured the first championship in franchise history. Trump also used the occasion to touch on the situation in Turkey and an agriculture deal with China.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs’ use of the run-pass option is a big reason why their offense has been so successful the past season-plus. It has largely kept defenses uncertain where the ball is going, opening up the field for the Kansas City fleet of fast, athletic wide receivers. Only the past two weeks, the RPO has been more like R-P-Oh no!

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — No. 23 Iowa has lost back-to-back games to Michigan and Penn State, scoring just 15 points in all. The Hawkeyes, who scored in every quarter of their first four games, have had just one touchdown and three field goals in their last eight quarters. They also have six turnovers the last two games after just one in the first four. Iowa faces Purdue this weekend.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State’s success over the past two seasons helped it land freshman running back Breece Hall. Iowa State saw last weekend what it is like to have one of its own players take over a game. Hall ran for 132 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-14 victory at West Virginia. The Cyclones visit Texas Tech this weekend.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg took his turn silencing the Cardinals’ struggling bats, Nationals postseason star Howie Kendrick doubled three times and drove in three more runs, and Washington moved one win from the city’s first World Series appearance in 86 years by beating St. Louis 8-1 to take a 3-0 lead in the NL Championship Series. Strasburg struck out 12 in 7 innings.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pitching, defense and baserunning abandoned the Cardinals and their hitting never showed up in Game 3 of the NLCS. They got blown out 8-1 by the Washington Nationals to fall into a 3-0 hole and are one loss from being swept out of the series. St. Louis has scored one run through three games.

UNDATED (AP) — The Detroit Lions are the latest victim of questionable calls by officials that have seemingly become a regular part of every game. This time, it was two hands-to-the-face calls that aided Green Bay in its fourth-quarter comeback from a nine-point deficit for a 23-22 win. Both calls were on Lions defensive end Trey Flowers, who appeared to be grabbing his man by the shoulder and not the facemask or throat.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have struggled for Andy Reid’s entire tenure to stop the run. Now, with a team pegged as Super Bowl contenders, they may be worse than ever. Injuries have mounted on the defensive line, middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens also is hobbled and coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s switch from a 3-4 system to a 4-3 has failed to produce any noticeable improvement. It’s no wonder the Chiefs’ run defense is making opposing backs look like stars.

UNDATED (AP) — Nebraska will play Illinois in Dublin, Ireland, to open the 2021 season. It’s the second game in a five-game series of college games on the Emerald Isle. Navy and Notre Dame will meet in Dublin next season. The matchup in Dublin will be Nebraska’s first game outside of the United States since the Cornhuskers beat Kansas State in the 1992 Coca-Cola Bowl in Tokyo.
