No. 20 Iowa St. has no problem with N. Iowa 83-55


December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hallie Christofferson, Nikki Moody and Seanna Johnson had big games as No. 20 Iowa State cruised by Northern Iowa 83-55 Wednesday night. Christofferson led in scoring with 22 points, hitting 8 of 10 free throws. Moody added 16 points and eight assists. Johnson had 14 points and 13 rebounds as the Cyclones (8-0), off to their best start in 11 seasons, out-rebounded Northern Iowa 49-30. The Panthers (2-7), held to 36 percent shooting, were led by Madison Weekly with 16 points.

Erin Dohnalek’s 3-pointer pulled Northern Iowa into a 14-14 tie before the Cyclones reeled off 16 straight points. Late in the first half, Iowa State went on a 12-2 run before six quick points from the Panthers made it 43-26 at the half.

ISU dominated the inside, out-scoring the Panthers 42-16 in the paint and 16-4 in second-chance points. UNI had 18 turnovers good for 24 Cyclone points.

Dropped passes an epidemic for stumbling Chief


December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It was almost like adding injury to insult when Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano banged his head off the turf so hard that he sustained a concussion after dropping a pass. He wasn’t the only one who let the ball slip through his fingers last Sunday.

The Chiefs have finally started to put up some offense the last three weeks, but bobbled balls and drops have kept them from putting even more points on the board — maybe even avoiding becoming the first team to start 9-0 and then lose three straight games.

As the Chiefs head to Washington on Sunday, coach Andy Reid said everyone has to do a better job of making plays when they’re put in the position to do so.

Cardinals purchase of Memphis affiliate delayed


December 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals must wait another week to find out if their bid to purchase a minor-league affiliate in Memphis is approved.  The Memphis City Council on Tuesday night delayed a vote on the proposed agreement between the Cardinals and the Memphis Redbirds Baseball Foundation. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that elected officials want more time to review the purchase contract.

The agreement calls for the city to purchase AutoZone Park and then lease it to the Cardinals for $300,000 annually as part of a 17-year lease with options for another 10 years. The Cardinals would pay $15 million to purchase the Class AAA franchise and pay for stadium improvements.

The Cardinals already own three of their minor-league affiliates

Milwaukee handles Northern Iowa 83-72


December 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Matt Tiby and Jordan Aaron scored 19 points apiece to lead Milwaukee over Northern Iowa 83-72 Tuesday night.  Milwaukee (8-2) had four players in double figures, with Steve McWhorter adding 16 and Austin Arians chipping in with 11. Milwaukee shot 45 percent from the floor, including 10 of 27 (37 percent) from beyond the arc.

Northern Iowa (3-4) was led by Deon Mitchell with 19 points, while Wes Washpun added 16 and Chip Rank scored 13. Northern Iowa built a seven-point halftime lead, and stretched it to nine a minute into the second half. But Milwaukee scored the next 17 points, including 3-pointers by Tiby and Aaron, to reverse the tide and give Milwaukee a six-point lead at 13:40 of the second.

Northern Iowa cut the lead to five on a pair of Washpun free throws with 1:32 left, but Milwaukee made four straight free throws to secure the victory.
