TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Brenton Scott hit six 3-pointers and scored 30 points, both career highs, and Indiana State came back from a 12-point deficit for the second straight game, beating Northern Iowa 74-60 on Wednesday.

Chiefs’ Pederson focused on Patriots, not Philly job

Sports

January 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says his interview for the vacant head coaching job in Philadelphia went “great,” but he insists he is focused on the New England Patriots. The Chiefs visit the reigning Super Bowl champions for a playoff game Saturday.

Pederson interviewed for the Philadelphia job Sunday. He started nine games at quarterback for the Eagles in 1999, and began his NFL coaching career under Andy Reid in 2009 as a quality control coach. Pederson followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013 as his offensive coordinator.

The Eagles have also interviewed Tom Coughlin, Duce Staley, Pat Shurmur and Ben McAdoo. Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase also interviewed before taking the job in Miami.

January 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has named Jim Hofher as his passing game coordinator, completing his first staff with the Cyclones. Hofher has 35 years of experience at the college level, including 13 years as a head coach at Cornell and Buffalo. Hofher spent the past three seasons as the assistant head coach at Nevada.

Hofher will work under coordinator Tom Manning, who’ll be in his first season running an offense. Iowa State went 3-9 last season, leading to the dismissal of coach Paul Rhoads. The Cyclones will hold their annual spring game on April 16.

January 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — IsaiahTaylor scored 28 points, including five in overtime, and Texas upset No. 17 Iowa State 94-91 on Tuesday night. Tevin Mack and Eric Davis scored 14 points each for the Longhorns, and Javan Felix added 13. Texas made 13 3-pointers in the game.

Niang picked up his third foul with 16:10 remaining. He left the game with Iowa State (12-4, 1-3 Big 12) trailing by 10 points. When he returned less than 3 minutes later, the Cyclones were down by 13.

Taylor and Connor Lammert responded with 3-pointers for Texas (10-6, 2-2), but Niang scored four points, and Morris added two, and the score was tied again, this time with 1:09 left. Taylor made a spinning shot with his off hand, the left, with 37 seconds left, but Niang matched it 9 seconds later, and the game went to overtime.

Atlantic hosts Glenwood in basketball doubleheader tonight

Sports

January 12th, 2016 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Girls and Boys basketball teams get a rare chance to play home games on the same night tonight at the Atlantic High School gymnasium.  Fans don’t often get a chance to see both Varsity teams play on the same floor on the same night due to larger class scheduling habits but Glenwood and Atlantic worked out a home and home doubleheader series this year.  Fans coming out to the games to support the Trojans are asked to wear white to create a “white out” environment.

Glenwood won the first Girls match-up on December 15th 49-43 in a game that counted toward the Hawkey Ten Conference standings.  This time the teams meet in a non-conference match-up but a lot will still be on the line as both teams are just over .500 on the season.  Glenwood comes in with a 6-4 overall record and 4-3 in the Hawkeye Ten.  The Trojans are 6-5 overall and 3-3 in the Hawkeye Ten.  The Trojans will try to slow Glenwood Senior Molly Dean who had 19 points in the first meeting and is averaging 13 points per game.

In the Boys game Glenwood will be the team trying to even the season series as Atlantic won on December 15th 57-48 in a very physical game.  Trojan Senior Ryan Hawkins had 22 points in that first game while Junior Garrett Franken had a great game with 19 points.  The Trojans did a good job of slowing down Glenwood’s strong guard play back in December and will work to repeat that effort tonight.  Ram Sophomore Andre Blum had 18 points last meeting.  The Rams come in at 8-2 overall and 4-1 in Hawkeye Ten action.  The Trojans are 9-1 overall and also 4-1 in the conference. The meeting tonight does count toward the conference standings.

We will have coverage of both games tonight on KJAN AM 1220 and FM 101.1. Pregame for the girls game will start at 5:50pm with tipoff at 6:00pm.  The boys game will follow with tipoff scheduled for 7:30pm.  You can listen on-air, online, or on the KJAN mobile app. You can also catch the live video stream on our TV page at kjan.com
