Cyclones begin busy stretch with Wednesday visit to Oklahoma State


January 11th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

Iowa State begins a busy week tonight (Wednesday night), with a visit to Oklahoma State. It opens a three game in six day stretch for the Cyclones that will conclude with a Big Monday game against second ranked Kansas. Deonte Burton had 27 points in Saturday’s win over Texas and Cyclones Coach Steve Prohm says they need more of that from their senior forward.

A key against the Cowboys will be slowing down sophomore point guard Jawun Evans, who averages 19 points and is shooting 51 percent from three point range. Oklahoma State is 10-5 under first year coach Brad Underwood but they are 0-3 in the Big-12 after a 61-57 loss at top ranked Baylor.

Tip-time for the game is 7-p.m. at Gallagher-Iba Arena, in Stillwater, OK.

Jacobson focused on improvement as UNI prepares to visit Bradley


January 11th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson is focused on the future as the Panthers get ready for tonight’s (Wednesday’s) game at Bradley. The Panthers are 0-4 in the Missouri Valley race after an 80-66 loss to Wichita State and their current six-game losing skid is the longest for the program since 2001.

Despite a 5-10 overall record Jacobson says the players have remained positive. Improvement begins with eliminating breakdowns on defense and the mistakes on offense that plagued them in Sunday’s loss to the Shockers.

Bradley is 7-10 overall and 2-2 in the Valley. Tip time from Carver Arena in Peoria, IL, is 8-p.m.

Trojan Girls cagers struggle to find momentum at Glenwood


January 10th, 2017 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Girls basketball team struggled to put together any momentum in a road loss at Glenwood 51-37 on Tuesday night.  The Trojans struggled to find consistent scoring and take care of the basketball but still found themselves in a two point game at halftime. But the second half would see Glenwood grab just enough of a run to pull out of reach for Atlantic.  The Rams outscored the Trojans 13-4 in the third quarter and that was enough to push them to the win as Atlantic didn’t catch many breaks all night.

Nicole Shuppan led Glenwood with 20 points in the victory and the Rams picked up their second win of the season overall, both against the Trojans.

Atlantic was led by Baylee Newell with 12 points and Catherine Leonard with 11 as they are still searching for their first win of the year.  The Trojans travel to face a tough Lewis Central team on Friday.

Atlantic rides huge third quarter to win at Glenwood in Boys hoops


January 10th, 2017 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Trojans came up with a huge third quarter and picked up a big Hawkeye Ten road win on Tuesday night at Glenwood in Boys basketball 68-62. The Trojans got off to a bit of a slow start against the Rams as Nate Mohr hit a couple of threes early but Atlantic never rattled. The Trojans trailed by two at the end of the first quarter and four at half.  Then Atlantic lit up the scoreboard for 28 points in the third quarter to take a 59-45 lead into the final period where they did enough to hang on.  Atlantic Head Coach Alan Jenkins was proud of the way his team handled themselves throughout the game.

Senior leader Garrett Franken only had four points in the first half but found a number of ways to impact the game before erupting for 12 points in the big third quarter run. Coach Jenkins was proud of the way Franken eased himself into scoring and not forcing anything.  He also said the difference was Franken and Scott Leonard’s rebounding effort throughout.

Franken said he knew it was going to be an intense atmosphere and all the rebounding work in practice paid off.

Franken finished with 21 points on the night. Scott Leonard had another huge game on the block for Atlantic and dropped in 22 points to lead the team.  Atlantic is now 5-1 in the conference and 8-3 overall. The Trojans will now prepare for a big home game on Friday against league leading Lewis Central.

Nate Mohr led all scorers on the night with 32 points for the Rams. Glenwood falls to 2-3 in the conference and 5-4 overall. The Rams next travel to St. Albert on Friday.
