Iowa State’s Morris taken in NBA Draft by Denver


June 23rd, 2017 by Chris Parks

Iowa State’s Monte Morris is now a member of the Denver Nuggets. Morris was selected in the second round with the 51st pick in the 2017 draft.

The Flint, Michigan native was an All-American for the Cyclones as a senior when he averaged 16.5 points per game. He is the NCAA all-time single-season and career leader in assist to turnover ratio.

Morris is the 38th former Cyclone to be drafted. Iowa State has had 11 players drafted since the Big 12 Conference was formed in 1996. This is the second consecutive year a Cyclone has been taken in the second round after Georges Niang was selected by the Indiana Pacers last year.

TCU’s Wymer stymies Louisville in 4-3 CWS win; Florida next


June 23rd, 2017 by Chris Parks

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Sean Wymer struck out national player of the year Brendan McKay in two key situations while pitching 4 1/3 innings of shutout relief, and TCU was on the right side of two close plays in a 4-3 win over Louisville in a College World Series elimination game Thursday night.

The Horned Frogs (49-17) jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead, with one of their runs coming on a play at the plate that withstood a video review. Wymer (6-4) limited the Cardinals (53-12) to two hits after they had pulled within a run on McKay’s 18th homer of the year and Logan Taylor’s first homer in 123 games.

McKay came up two more times with chances to tie the game or give Louisville the lead, but Wymer struck him out to end the fifth and eighth innings. Louisville coach Dan McDonnell was ejected in the eighth for arguing a call at second base.

TCU, which took a 4-0 lead in the second inning against Nick Bennett (5-1), advances to the Bracket 2 final needing to beat Florida on Friday night and again Saturday to reach the best-of-three championship series for the first time.

Nola helps Phillies beat Cards 5-1, stop 5-game losing steak


June 22nd, 2017 by Ric Hanson

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Aaron Nola pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning, Freddy Galvis and Tommy Joseph homered, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Thursday to stop a five-game losing streak.

Joseph drove in three runs as Philadelphia, a major league-worst 23-48, won for just the second time in 15 games. Nola (4-5) allowed one run, four hits and two walks in 7 1/3 innings and struck out eight.

Paul DeJong homered on a hanging curveball leading off the eighth, pulling the Cardinals to 3-1, and Matt Carpenter walked with one out. Pat Neshek relieved and got Tommy Pham to ground into an inning-ending double play, and Luis Garcia followed with a perfect ninth.
