MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Hallie Christofferson scored 23 points and grabbed seven boards in No. 24 Iowa State’s 53-49 win over West Virginia on Saturday. Nikki Moody and Chelsea Poppens added 10 apiece for the Cyclones, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Iowa State (14-4, 5-3 Big 12), which trailed 37-25 35 seconds into the second half, shot just 39 percent (16 of 41) from the field, but nine of those shots came from 3-point range. The Cyclones rallied to tie the game 43-all with 6:24 left to play on Christofferson’s trey.

Ayana Dunning scored West Virginia’s next six points to make it 51-49 with a little over 2 minutes remaining, but the Mountaineers (11-8, 3-5) missed their next four shots and two free throws as Iowa State pulled away. Dunning led West Virginia with 17 points, but the Mountaineers, who shot 41 percent (19 of 46) made just 5 of 10 free throws.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Jake Odum’s two free throws with 0.3 seconds left gave Indiana State a 59-58 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday. Northern Iowa had gone ahead 58-57 on Anthony James’ jumper with 3.3 seconds to play. After a timeout, Odum attempted a desperation 3-pointer but was fouled by Jake Koch. Odum missed the first free throw but made the next two, and Northern Iowa couldn’t get off another shot.

Odum led the Sycamores (13-7, 6-3 Missouri Valley) with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists, pulling within 45 points of 1,000 for his career. RJ Mahurin added 14 points and Manny Arop had 10. The Panthers (11-10, 4-5) got 15 points from James, 13 from Koch and 12 from Seth Tuttle.

The back-and-forth game saw neither team lead by more than seven points. Indiana State shot 63 percent from the field in the second half in erasing a 27-23 halftime deficit.

Iowa State hires Klenakis as OL coach

Sports

January 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has hired former Arkansas assistant Chris Klenakis as its new offensive line coach and assigned associate head coach Bill Bleil to work with the tight ends. Klenakis, who spent the past three seasons with the Razorbacks, was previously the offensive coordinator at Nevada. He coached San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick from 2007-09 and is well-versed in the “Pistol” style of offense, which features quarterbacks operating out of the shotgun but closer to the line of scrimmage.

Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads says Klenakis will help the Cyclones diversify and expand their offense. Klenakis has coached in Division I for 23 years, including a three-year stint as the offensive coordinator at Southern Mississippi.

Men’s basketball preview: Iowa at Purdue Sunday

Sports

January 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Hawkeyes return to Big Ten action on Sunday with a visit to Purdue. The Hawks are 2-4 in the Big Ten and take on a Purdue team that has played well in the conference race after getting off to a slow start. “Purdue has been impressive to me,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says. “It’ll be a tough game.” Purdue is 3-3 in the Big Ten after a 68-53 loss at second-ranked Michigan Thursday. McCaffery is hoping the Hawkeyes can do a better job of executing at the offensive end against the Boilermakers. “That was an issue against Michigan State at home and it was an issue down the stretch against Indiana,” McCaffery says.

Free throws were also an issue in this week’s loss at Ohio State as the Hawks connected on only 13 of 26 from the stripe. Iowa and Purdue tipoff at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
