AP Source: Cardinals to sign pitcher Mike Leake

Sports

December 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals and free-agent pitcher Mike Leake have agreed to terms on a contract, a person with direct knowledge of the deal says. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been formally announced, said the signing is pending the results of a physical.

General manager John Mozeliak has scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals failed to land outfielder Jason Heyward and pitcher David Price earlier this off-season. Details of the contract with the 28-year-old were not immediately available.

Leake is 64-52 with a 3.88 ERA in 6 seasons. The right-hander was 11-10 with a 3.70 ERA for Cincinnati and San Francisco last season, totaling 30 starts and 190 innings.

Bluder knows Drake will be motivated

Sports

December 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

Iowa women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder would rather her Hawkeyes not even play Drake. Before taking over at Iowa Bluder was the Drake coach for 10 years and led the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament four times. Also, current Drake coach Jennie Baranczyk was a standout player for Bluder and the Hawkeyes. Iowa hosts Drake tonight (Tuesday), in its final game before the start of Big Ten play.

Bluder says the Hawkeyes will be facing a motivated Drake team. She says the Bulldogs are a reflection of their coach. Iowa is 9-2 and has won 23 straight home games. After racing out to a 6-0 record the Bulldogs have dropped three of their last four after an 87-73 loss at Northern Illinois.

Tip-off in Iowa City is at 5-p.m.

Sports

December 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Hawkeyes close out non-conference action tonight (Tuesday) at home against Tennessee Tech. Iowa is 8-3 and takes on a Golden Eagles team that is 8-4. Iowa redshirt freshman Nicholas Baer has been named the Big Ten Conference freshman of the week. The Bettendorf native scored 13 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked six shots in the Hawkeyes victory over Drake. Baer is a walk-on which is more common in the sport of football.

Tonight’s game will close out the most challenging non conference scheduled the Hawkeyes have played since McCaffery has been the coach. You can catch the action on KJAN. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:30-p.m., with the tip-off from Carver-Hawkeye Area at 7:30.

Michigan State, Kansas and Oklahoma held the top three spots in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll for a second straight week. There was a shakeup in the rest of the top 10 after a weekend of upsets.

The Spartans (12-0) were a near unanimous choice, receiving all but one first-place vote from the 65-member national media panel. Kansas (9-1) got the other No. 1 vote.

Following Oklahoma were Maryland, Virginia, Xavier, North Carolina, Arizona, Butler and Providence, which is in the top 10 for the first time since Jan. 17, 1978.  Iowa State fell from No.5 to No. 11 in this week’s poll after suffering their first loss of the season on Saturday to Northern Iowa.  The Cyclones also dropped seven spots to No. 9 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Utah, which returned to the rankings following its win over Duke on Saturday, and South Carolina, which is ranked for the first time since the final poll of 2003-04, are the week’s newcomers at 24th and 25th. They replace UCLA and Connecticut.
