A basketball player for the University of Iowa arrested early Saturday morning on a trio of charges has pleaded not guilty. KCCI-TV reports Hawkeye basketball player Josh Oglesby was arrested at around 1:50-a.m. at a bar in Iowa City. Oglesby was charged with interference of official acts, disorderly conduct and public intoxication. He was released later Saturday morning, and is set to appear at a hearing on Nov. 5th.

In a statement to the media, Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said: “I was made aware of the incident involving Josh this morning. I will collect all the facts when I return to Iowa City. Once fully informed of the situation, I will visit with Josh and we will operate in accordance with the rules and regulations of our student-athlete Code of Conduct.”

Ogelsby is a senior from Cedar Rapids and averaged 6.6 points per game last season as a junior.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jeff Gyorko hit his third career grand slam and drove in five runs, sparking the San Diego Padres to a 9-5 rain-delayed victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night. Gyorko’s eighth homer came on an 0-1 pitch from Kevin Siegrist (1-3) with one out in the seventh. The Padres had loaded the bases on two singles and a walk before Gyorko’s drive to left. Rain then halted play later in the inning.

The Cardinals dropped to three games back of Milwaukee for the NL Central lead. The Brewers beat Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers 3-2. San Diego won for the sixth time in its last eight games.

Iowa hosts final public scrimmage

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz wants his players focused on little more than football during fall camp. That’s why fans get one chance to see what the Hawkeyes might look like when they open the season in two weeks.

Iowa’s annual mid-camp open practice, held Saturday at Kinnick Stadium, is the only public glimpse of the Hawkeyes in August. It’s also typically the only time coach Kirk Ferentz provides updates on the program.

Ferentz says fullback Adam Cox is out for the season after tearing a knee ligament. But he also praised the competition for starting spots and kicker and punter, even though Iowa’s placekickers looked shaky on Saturday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been suspended for the season opener against Tennessee for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Bowe was pulled over for speeding in a Kansas City suburb on Nov. 10, and was arrested after police found a black bag containing his wallet, driver’s license and two containers of suspected marijuana. He later pleaded guilty to amended charges of defective equipment and littering, and his attorney said there was no admission of guilt for the marijuana charge, which was dismissed.

Bowe issued a statement through the NFL Players’ Association shortly after the suspension was announced in which he apologized for having to miss the Titans game on Sept. 7.

Bowe remains eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation says Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to be suspended for the season opener against Tennessee after his arrest for marijuana possession. The person disclosed the expected one-game suspension to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team and NFL had not yet announced a punishment.

Bowe was pulled over in a Kansas City suburb on Nov. 10 for driving 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. He was arrested after police found a black bag containing his wallet, driver’s license and two containers of suspected marijuana.

He later pleaded guilty to amended charges of defective equipment and littering, and paid $610 in fines. Bowe’s attorney said there was no admission of guilt for the marijuana charge, which was dismissed.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — It’s become a late summer tradition that Iowa State would like to break. If it’s the middle of August, the Cyclones are in the middle of yet another quarterback controversy.

Iowa State is again unsettled at the game’s most important position. The Cyclones have narrowed their choices down to junior Sam Richardson and sophomore Grant Rohach, and coach Paul Rhoads said Thursday that he’ll name a starter by Monday.

Iowa State opens the season at home on Aug. 30 against FCS power North Dakota State.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pinch-hitter Jon Jay delivered a two-run double in the eighth inning and right fielder Shane Robinson threw out the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth to help the St. Louis Cardinals hold off the San Diego Padres 4-3 Thursday night. Jhonny Peralta hit an early two-run homer for the Cardinals, who moved ahead of Pittsburgh into second place in the NL Central. St. Louis remained two games behind division-leading Milwaukee.

San Diego had its five-game winning streak snapped and fell to 16-9 since the All-Star break. Trailing by two in the ninth, the Padres loaded the bases with one out against closer Trevor Rosenthal. Pinch-hitter Jake Goebbert came through with an RBI single to right, but Alexi Amarista was cut down at home when he tried to score from second.
