Iowa Women Pull-off 1st Big Win on the Road over Wisconsin

Sports

January 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MADISON, Wis. — Fueled by a 16-3 run midway through the second half, the University of Iowa women’s basketball team dumped Wisconsin 65-56 on Thursday at the Kohl Center.

The Hawkeyes (13-4 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) received double-doubles from senior center Morgan Johnson  (23 points, 11 rebounds) and sophomore guard Samantha Logic (12 points, 10 rebounds). Once again Logic flirted with a triple double: she handed out nine assists.

Iowa has won eight of its last nine games, but last Sunday the Hawkeyes were knocked off at home by Michigan, 68-64. The Hawkeyes lead the Big Ten with 17.2 assists per game; Iowa had 17 more against Wisconsin, with a bulk coming from Logic.

The Hawkeyes have seven days before playing at Michigan State on Jan. 17.

No. 22 Michigan State holds off Iowa 62-59

Sports

January 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Branden Dawson scored a career-high 17 points, including a late steal and tiebreaking dunk that helped No. 22 Michigan State hold off Iowa 62-59 on Thursday night. Gary Harris had 14 points for the Spartans (13-3, 2-1 Big Ten), who hung on late for their eighth win in nine games. Dawson ripped the ball away from Iowa freshman Mike Gesell and gave Michigan State a 58-56 lead with 49 seconds left.

Anthony Clemmons missed a free throw that would have tied it with 12 seconds to go and airballed a 3-pointer at the buzzer as Iowa (11-5, 0-3) lost its third straight. The Hawkeyes played without leading scorer Devyn Marble, who sprained his ankle in practice this week. Zach McCabe led Iowa with 15 points and fellow reserve Melsahn Basabe added 14.

Record-setting Taylor breaks wrist, out for season

Sports

January 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — Jack Taylor, who set the NCAA scoring record with 138 points in a game in November, is out for the season after breaking his wrist. Grinnell College spokesman Ted Schultz says Taylor fractured the radius on his shooting arm during a 119-117 win over rival Cornell (Iowa) on Wednesday. Taylor will likely have surgery within a week and be out 2-3 months, costing the sensational sophomore the rest of the season.

Taylor captured the attention of the basketball world when he dropped 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible College on November 12th, shattering the previous mark by 25 points. Taylor finishes his season averaging 36.3 points per game in leading the Pioneers to a 9-3 record.

McLemore leads No. 6 Kansas past Iowa State in OT

Sports

January 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Freshman Ben McLemore had a career-high 33 points, including a tying 3-pointer with a second left in regulation, and No. 6 Kansas rallied to beat Iowa State 97-89 in overtime Wednesday night. McLemore was 10 of 12 from the field and perfect on six 3-pointers for the Jayhawks (13-1, 1-0 Big 12), who scored the first nine points of overtime to wrap up their 12th straight win.

Iowa State (10-4, 0-1) poured in 14 3-pointers, and had forged a 79-76 lead with 8.4 seconds left in regulation. But the Jayhawks’ Elijah Johnson found McLemore on the wing, and he banked in a 3-pointer from well beyond the arc with a single tick on the clock to force overtime. McLemore added another 3-pointer to open the extra 5 minutes, and Travis Releford and Jeff Withey made five consecutive free throws to help put the game away.

January 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

WACO, Texas (AP) — Brittney Griner scored the game’s first five points and finished with 23 as Baylor led throughout in its first game since taking back the No. 1 spot, defeating 25th-ranked Iowa State 67-39 on Wednesday night. Griner already had 11 points as Baylor (13-1, 3-0 Big 12) jumped out to a 16-3 lead in just over 8 minutes. The Lady Bears set a Big 12 record with their 25th consecutive conference victory, breaking a tie with Oklahoma (24 in a row from March 2005-January 2007). Baylor has won 48 games in a row overall at home, the longest active winning streak.

Nikki Moody had 11 points for Iowa State (11-2, 2-1), which had won its first two Big 12 games for the first time in eight seasons, had 15 of its 24 turnovers by halftime.

Evansville holds on to beat Northern Iowa 62-59

Sports

January 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Colt Ryan scored 21 points, including two free throws with 18 seconds left that proved to be the game-winning points, as Evansville hung on Wednesday night for a 62-59 win over Northern Iowa. Ryan’s foul shots put the Purple Aces (10-6, 3-1 Missouri Valley) ahead 60-57 before UNI’s Anthony James’ layup made it a one-point game. Ned Cox made two more free throws with 10 seconds left, and James missed a tying 3-pointer to end the game in Cedar Falls.

Evansville led by as many as 14 in the second half but saw the Panthers (8-8, 1-3) take their only lead since the opening minutes, 57-55, on James’ jumper with 53 seconds left. Lewis Jones then put Evansville back in front with a three-point play. James led UNI with 19 points. Seth Tuttle, last week’s MVC player of the week after scoring 43 points in two games, was held to nine Wednesday.
