Sports

February 19th, 2020 by Chris Parks

The Red Oak girls basketball team  used a second quarter run to take control of the game and defeated Atlantic 62-50 in a Class 3A Region 8 Semifinal on Wednesday night.

The Tigers grabbed a 7-0 lead right out of the gate and were ahead 20-8 late in the first quarter. Atlantic then ripped off a 12-0 run to tie the game at 20 early in the second period. Red Oak responded in a big way with a 14-0 run of their own to seize control of the game. The Trojans would trim the lead down to 9 a couple times in the third but would never get any closer.

The Tigers had three players finish in double-figures led by 18 from Ellie Rengstorf. Chloe Johnson had 14 and Lexi Johnson scored 12. The Tigers improve to 20-3 on the season and advance to the Region 8 Final on Saturday night. The Tigers will face Creston in that Final at Southwest Valley High School in Corning at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. The Panthers advanced with a 51-44 win over West Marshall.

The Trojans got 20 points from Haley Rasmussen and 16 from McKenzie Waters. The Trojans end their season with a record of 9-14 and say goodbye to Waters and fellow senior Corri Pelzer. The Trojans 9 wins is equal to their win total for the past three seasons combined.

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

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection in his ailing throwing arm, likely delaying his regular-season debut by about one month. The 2018 All-Star received a similar injection after last season to treat a flexor tendon issue. St. Louis manager Mike Shildt says the injection will keep Mikolas from throwing for three to four weeks. Once he is cleared to throw, Mikolas will have to restart his throwing program from the beginning.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Ty-Shon Alexander scored 22 points and Marcus Zegarowski added 17 to lead No. 15 Creighton to a 73-65 victory over No. 19 Marquette. Creighton won for the eighth time in nine games, including road victories over three ranked teams, and moved within a half-game of first-place Seton Hall in the Big East standings. Sacar Anim had 18 points for Marquette. Markus Howard, who entered as the nation’s leading scorer at 27.3 points per game, added 13 — all in the second half.

UNDATED (AP) — Xavier Pinson scored a career-high 32 points on 9-of-13 shooting and missed just one free throw in 11 attempts and Missouri beat Ole Miss 71-68 on Tuesday night. Dru Smith added 17 points for the Tigers going 9 for 10 from the foul line. In Missouri’s win last Saturday over No. 11 Auburn, Pinson and Smith combined for 56 of the team’s 85 points. Both teams led for portions of the second half leading up to a tie at 63 with less than two minutes remaining. Pinson and Smith hit eight key free throws, and the Tigers’ defense held the Rebels to just four points. Breein Tyree led the Rebels with 29 points.

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) — Tre Mitchell scored 24 points and Dibaji Walker added 14 points off the bench and UMass edged Saint Louis 67-63. Carl Pierre’s 3-pointer with 1:49 left broke a tie at 62 and the Minutemen held on. Preston Santos added 13 points and Sean East II distributed seven assists. UMass distributed 18 assists on 27-made field goals. Jordan Goodwin’s layup just out of halftime put the Billikens up 41-31 before UMass began a methodical march back. Samba Diallo’s jumper with 9:18 to play put it up 50-49 and neither team led by more than four going forward. Goodwin had 22 points and 14 rebounds for St. Louis.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas has hired Jonathan Wallace to coach special teams and running backs, completing an overhaul of coach Les Miles’ staff as the Jayhawks head into Year 2 of the former national championship-winning coach’s regime. Miles announced the hiring in a statement Tuesday. Wallace spent last season coaching tight ends at Air Force, and he spent the previous season at Bethel, a Division III school in Minnesota where he worked with recently promoted offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon.
