Cards chairman DeWitt says he’s met Kroenke “once or twice”


January 17th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt says he has zero insight on the Rams’ move to Los Angeles. In fact, he says he’s met Rams owner Stan Kroenke only “once or twice.” Kroenke has been with the Rams since they relocated to St. Louis in 1995. That was the same year DeWitt’s group purchased the Cardinals from Anheuser-Busch, but there’s been virtually no intermingling.

The Cardinals are regularly one of the biggest draws in the major leagues and had attendance of 3.5 million last season. DeWitt said at the team’s annual Winter Warmup fan festival on Sunday that he believed St. Louis can support an NFL team. But, he added: “I just don’t really know Stan Kroenke.”


No. 16 Iowa beats Michigan 82-71


January 17th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Jarrod Uthoff scored 23 points and No. 16 Iowa beat Michigan 82-71 on Sunday for its first 5-0 start in the Big Ten in 19 years. Peter Jok had 14 of his 16 points in the second half for the surging Hawkeyes (14-3, 5-0), who could make a big leap in Monday’s rankings after a tumultuous week for many of the nation’s top teams.

Iowa broke open a tight game with a 16-3 run midway through the second half, and Jok buried a 3-pointer that made it 76-68 with 2:34 left. Derrick Walton Jr. had 16 points for Michigan (13-5, 3-2). The Wolverines played their fourth straight game without star Caris LeVert, who was out with a left leg injury.

Southern Illinois tops Drake 81-76 to stay unbeaten on road


January 17th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Anthony Beane scored 26 points, Bola Olaniyan had 11 points and 14 rebounds and Southern Illinois beat Drake 81-76 on Sunday to remain unbeaten on the road. Beane’s 3-point play capped SIU’s 9-0 run for a 37-29 lead late in the first half. Olaniyan scored the final five points of the half for an 11-point lead as Drake only made one field goal in the final five minutes.

Drake took its first lead of the second half at 61-59 on Reed Timmer’s 3-pointer with nine minutes left. But Drake didn’t hit another field goal until Timmer’s at the 3:20 mark. Southern Illinios made 4 of 6 free throws in the final 35 seconds to seal it.

Leo Vincent added 12 points for Southern Illinois (16-3, 5-1 Missouri Valley), while Sean O’Brien and Austin Weiher chipped in 10 apiece. Timmer finished with 27 points for Drake (5-13, 0-6), which lost its 10th game in the last 11.

Reid says Chiefs had headset problems at New England


January 17th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs coach Andy Reid says his team experienced problems with their headsets during Saturday’s playoff loss in New England, though they worked fine in the crucial final minutes of the game. Reid said the problem occurred in the first half between the coaching staff and the radio in quarterback Alex Smith’s helmet.

But Reid said they cut out “just a little bit, not much,” and did not think that they were anything out of the ordinary. It’s not the first time that headsets had trouble at Gillette Stadium. In the regular-season opener, Pittsburgh complained the coaches’ headsets were filled with the Patriots’ radio broadcast of the game. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin later said his coaches have had problems with headsets every time they play at New England. The Patriots beat the Chiefs 27-20 on Saturday.

January 16th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady hit Rob Gronkowski with two touchdown passes and reached over the goal line for another score Saturday to lead the New England Patriots into the AFC championship game with a 27-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s the fifth straight trip to the conference title game for the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Patriots (13-4) will meet the winner of Sunday’s game between Pittsburgh and Denver for a spot in Super Bowl 50 as they try to become the first repeat NFL champs since they did it in 2003-04.

After spending the last two weeks recovering from knee and back injuries, Gronkowski had touchdown catches from 8 and 16 yards The All-Pro tight end had seven receptions for 82 yards. Kansas City (12-6) had won a franchise-record 11 consecutive games, including 30-0 at Houston last week in the wild-card round.

January 16th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

MANHATTAN, Kan.

The win snapped a two-game skid for the Cyclones (13-4, 2-3 Big 12) after close losses to Texas and No. 22 Baylor, and prevented Iowa State’s first 1-4 league start since 2010-11.

Abdel Nader added 14 points and Matt Thomas had 11 for Iowa State, which shot 50.9 percent from the field — meeting its season average of 50.2. Three players finished with at least six rebounds. First-year Iowa State coach Steve Prohm used a timeout with 9:35 play to spark a 7-0 run after Kansas State cut a double-digit lead to 50-45 on a basket by Justin Edwards.

Edwards scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds for Kansas State (11-6, 1-4).
