February 19th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Alize Johnson scored 23 points and grabbed a career-high 21 rebounds to lead Missouri State over Drake 76-73 on Saturday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

It was Johnson’s 15th double-double of the season. Dequon Miller added 16 points for Missouri State (16-13, 7-9 Missouri Valley). Graham Woodward and Reed Timmer scored 15 points apiece to lead Drake (7-21, 5-11).

De’Antae McMurray made a free throw and intentionally missed the second attempt to pull Drake to 75-73.

February 18th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Malcom Hill scored 21 points and hauled down eight rebounds and Illinois held on for a 70-66 win over Iowa on Saturday. Michael Finke, Jalen Coleman-Lands and Te’Jon Lucas each scored 12 points for the Illini (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten).

Lucas blocked Jordan Bohannon’s go-ahead layup attempt in the final two minutes and then Coleman-Lands hit a corner 3-pointer with 1:32 left to help Illinois win its second true road game of the season. Peter Jok had 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead Iowa (14-13, 6-8). The Hawkeyes have lost three straight.

Wichita St. cruises past UNI 73-44 for 10th straight


February 18th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Landry Shamet and Darral Willis Jr. scored 14 points apiece and Wichita State throttled Northern Iowa 77-43 on Saturday to run its winning streak to 10. Markis McDuffie added 12 points for the Shockers (25-5, 15-1 Missouri Valley), who reached 25 wins for the eighth year in a row. Shamet hit four 3-pointers and Wills grabbed 11 rebounds to help Wichita State dominate the boards 48-23.

Spencer Haldeman had 13 points for the Panthers (14-13, 9-7), who had won four straight and nine of 10. Northern Iowa had to make two of its last three shots to finish at 27.5 percent (14 of 51) and avoid its worst shooting game of the season and lowest point total (42).

Wichita State, which has had 10-game winning streaks 10 times dating back to the 1920-21 season, took control early with a 9-0 run.

No. 25 Drake women roll to 14th straight win


February 18th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Brenni Rose made four 3-pointers and scored 14 points and No. 25 Drake defeated Indiana State 64-45 on Friday night in the Bulldogs’ first game since making it into the Top 25 for the first time in over 16 years.

Becca Jonas added 10 points and a team-high seven rebounds and Becca Hittner also scored 10 points for the Bulldogs (21-4, 14-0 Missouri Valley), whose last poll appearance came on Dec. 3, 2001. Lizzy Wendell, the MVC’s top scorer at 21.7 points per game, scored only five on 2-of-7 shooting in 23 minutes and had her nation-best streak of at least 10 points end at 102 games.

Rhagen Smith led the Sycamores (12-12, 6-7) with 11 points and seven rebounds. Indiana State, the MVC’s top defensive team at 56.3 points a game, kept the score down against the Bulldogs, the league’s top offensive team at 83.8. But Drake still shot 47 percent and was 10 of 19 from the arc. Indiana State shot 30 percent and 5 of 18 from 3-point range. The teams combined for 40 turnovers.

The Bulldogs scored the game’s first 10 points and never trailed. They outscored the Sycamores 20-9 to break the game open in the third quarter, finishing the period with a 52-31 lead. Drake won its 15th straight game, one away from tying the program record.
