No. 9 Iowa State beats No. 7 Baylor 87-72

Sports

January 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Senior point guard DeAndre Kane was supposed to be a one-year stopgap for Iowa State. Kane has evolved into one of the most versatile players in the country — and the surging Cyclones look like one of the best teams in the nation because of it. Kane had a season-high 30 points with nine assists, eight rebounds and five steals as No. 9 Iowa State rolled past No. 7 Baylor 87-72 on Tuesday night, setting a school record with its 14th straight win. Melvin Ejim added 18 points for the Cyclones (14-0, 2-0 Big 12), who outscored Baylor 47-34 in the second half and rolled to a surprisingly decisive win over a fellow Big 12 title contender. Gary Franklin and Brady Heslip both had 15 points for Baylor (12-2, 0-1), which saw its win streak snapped at six games.

Baylor couldn’t have asked for a tougher draw to open Big 12 play. The Cyclones had already beaten ranked teams Michigan and Iowa at home this season and entered play 39-3 in Ames since 2011-12. This was the first matchup of top 10 teams in Ames in 13 years.It could end up having a huge say in the Big 12 title race. Though Baylor and Iowa State were picked to finish behind Kansas and Oklahoma State, the prospect of the Bears and Cyclones competing for the league title suddenly looks a lot more realistic than it did in November.

The Jayhawks have already lost four times. The Cowboys dropped their Big 12 opener at Kansas State in their first game without center Michael Cobbins, who’s out for the season with an Achilles injury. Meanwhile, the Bears rolled into league play with just one loss — No. 2 Syracuse in Hawaii — and Iowa State’s start remains the best in school history.

Big Ten suspends Iowa’s McCaffery for 1 game

Sports

January 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The Big Ten has suspended Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery for one game and fined Iowa $10,000 for his outburst during Sunday’s loss at Wisconsin. McCaffery received back-to-back technical fouls and was ejected for arguing with officials midway through the second half. The Big Ten says in a release on Tuesday that McCaffery’s actions violated the league’s sportsmanship policy.

McCaffery will sit out Thursday’s home game against Northwestern. Assistant coach Kirk Speraw will take his place. McCaffery apologized for the second time in as many days Tuesday, saying he regrets his actions and accepts the league’s decision.  Iowa athletic director Gary Barta says that McCaffery has expressed his remorse for the incident and adds that the coach has his full support moving forward.

Cardinals claim OF Ortega from Rangers

Sports

January 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals added an outfield prospect to the 40-man roster, claiming 22-year-old Rafael Ortega on waivers from the Texas Rangers. The left-handed hitting Ortega, of Venezuela, was designed for assignment by Texas on Dec. 30. The Rangers had claimed him from the Rockies a month earlier.

Colorado signed Ortega as a non-drafted free agent in 2008 and he made his major league debut in September 2012, appearing in two games. Ortega batted .228 for Double-A Tulsa last year with one home run, 10 RBIs and nine steals in 13 attempts before a season-ending leg injury in late June.

The Cardinals have one spot remaining on the roster.

Grinnell’s Maher sets NCAA assists record

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — The small Iowa school that produced 138-point scorer Jack Taylor has set another NCAA record. Division Three Grinnell College player Patrick Maher broke the NCAA record with 37 assists Monday night in a 164-144 victory over College of Faith.

Maher snapped the record of 34 set by Grinnell assistant head coach David Arseneault back in 2007. Maher also had 19 points to help the Pioneers improve to 8-2. Taylor put Grinnell on the national map with 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible on November 20th, 2012. Taylor didn’t play Monday night because of a lower back injury.
