FRESNO, Calif. (AP) – Gary Ricks scored 25 points to lead Drake to an 84-74 victory over Fresno State at the Fresno State Classic Friday night. Richard Carter contributed 21 points for Drake (4-1), which fell behind early but came back to tie Fresno State (4-3) at 31 with 5:27 remaining in the first half, then took a 37-35 lead into the half.

The score was tied six times and there were seven lead changes. Fresno State took the lead on an Allen Huddleston free throw with nine minutes remaining in the game. A Cezar Guerrero jumper followed by a Karachi Edo dunk kept Fresno State in front until Carter made a 3-pointer to give Drake a 63-61 lead with 7:17 remaining. Drake then stretched the lead to 72-63. Fresno State cut the deficit to five on a Guerrero 3-pointer with 1:24 remaining, but couldn’t pull closer.

Fresno State’s Marvelle Harris had 26 points.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hallie Christofferson and Seanna Johnson scored 20 points each as No. 23 Iowa State easily defeated Eastern Washington 88-60 in the South Point Shoot Out Friday night. This was the nineteenth career 20-point game for Christofferson, who also had 6 rebounds. It was also her sixty-third game in double figures.

Iowa State (5-0) had no trouble with Eastern Washington (0-4) as the Eagles never led while the Cyclones led by as much as 35 with 9:38 remaining in the second period. The Cyclones hit 17 of 32 shots from the floor in the first half as they jumped out to a 50-27 halftime lead. They finished by hitting 48.3 percent for the game. Iowa State was 12-of-29 shooting 3-point shots. The Cyclones outrebounded the Eagles 42 to 23.

Lexie Nelson led Eastern Washington with 18 points. Melissa Williams added 10.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Aaron White scored 17 points, Zach McCabe added 14 and No. 23 Iowa rolled into the championship game of the Battle 4 Atlantis, easily beating Texas-El Paso 89-53 on Friday night. Peter Jok scored 14 and Melsahn Basabe finished with 10 for the Hawkeyes (7-0), who have already won five times this season by at least 31 points. Iowa will meet Villanova for the tournament title on later today (Saturday).

After needing overtime to beat Xavier in the quarterfinals, Iowa took care of this one early. A 13-0 run in the opening minutes put the Hawkeyes in control, and Iowa’s first 20-point lead came a mere 14 minutes into the contest. Julian Washburn scored 13 for UTEP (4-3), which will play in the third-place game Saturday. No other Miner finished with more than seven.

Unranked Villanova advanced to the Battle 4 Atlantis title game by stunning No. 2 Kansas. The Villanova Wildcats closed on a 5-0 run as Ryan Arcidiacono hit a go-ahead, 3-pointer with 10.1 seconds left to help Villanova beat the Jayhawks 63-59. It was his only basket of the game, and the Wildcats’ lone field goal in the final seven minutes. Darrun Hilliard and Dylan Ennis each scored 14 for Villanova.

Chiefs’ Hali to play vs Denver; Houston out

Sports

November 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali pronounced himself close to 100 percent for Sunday’s game against Denver, while fellow pass rusher Justin Houston is week to week with an elbow injury.  Hali went through practice Friday without feeling pain from a sprained right ankle sustained in last Sunday’s loss to San Diego. He initially thought that the injury was much more serious, but he received treatment early in the week and will play against the Broncos.

Houston dislocated his right elbow against the Chargers and it’s unclear when he’ll return. The Chiefs’ top pass rusher couldn’t have an MRI exam until Wednesday because of swelling, and trainer Rick Burkholder said Friday the elbow was still in a brace.  Chiefs coach Andy Reid does not believe the injury is season-ending.

Rudock passes for 2 TDs, Iowa tops Nebraska 38-17

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Jake Rudock threw for two touchdowns, including a 24-yarder to Kevonte Martin-Manley right after Iowa had stuffed Nebraska on a fake punt, and the Hawkeyes finished the regular season with a 38-17 victory on Friday.  The Hawkeyes converted two of Nebraska’s three turnovers into touchdowns and got a short field for a third TD after the failed fake punt. Seven of Iowa’s 15 possessions started in Cornhuskers’ territory.

Iowa (8-4, 5-3 Big Ten) doubled its win total from a year ago and won a fourth road game for the first time since 2009. Mark Weisman ran 24 times for 72 yards and two touchdowns. Rudock left late in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury.

The Huskers (8-4, 5-3) had their lowest regular-season win total since 2008, coach Bo Pelini’s first year, and lost three games at home for the first time since 2007 under Bill Callahan.

Iowa St, West Virginia meet in 2013 finale

November 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Not long after Paul Rhoads finally thawed out from the coldest game in the history of Iowa State’s home stadium, the Cyclones’ coach recalled a night at West Virginia in 2005 that was even more bone chilling.

Rhoads was Pittsburgh’s defensive coordinator when the Panthers played in the Backyard Brawl in blustery snow and single-digit readings. He says the wind made that game feel colder than last week’s home finale against Kansas.

Still, Rhoads says the frigid Kansas win has mentally prepared Iowa State (2-9, 1-7 Big 12) for its first visit to West Virginia (4-7, 2-6) on Saturday. Temperatures for the late afternoon kickoff in Morgantown are expected to be balmy by comparison in the 30s.

The game marks the regular-season finale for both teams.
