Iowa’s Adam Woodbury silences critics

Sports

February 11th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — To his detractors, Iowa’s Adam Woodbury is often viewed as the blue-chip recruit who never lived up to expectations. Those who’ve watched Woodbury closely in 2015-16 would argue that he’s developed into one of the more underrated players in the Big Ten.

Woodbury, a 7-foot-1 senior, is among a handful of Hawkeyes whose career years have helped push the program into the top five in the rankings. Woodbury is averaging a career-high 8.5 points and a team-high 7.7 rebounds a game, with four double-doubles in his last seven outings while guiding a resurgent defense.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Zach Smith made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining in overtime to lead Texas Tech past Number 14 Iowa State 85-82 Wednesday night. It was the second straight year the Red Raiders beat the Cyclones in Lubbock. Last season, Iowa State was ranked ninth.

Deonte Burton scored a season-high 20 points and Abdel added 19 points to lead Iowa State (17-7, 6-5). Fans stormed the court after the victory. Aaron Ross scored 20 points and Devaugntah Williams added 19 to lead Texas Texas (14-9, 4-7).

Iowa State built leads several times — in each half — only to watch the Red Raiders claw their way back. Two free throws by Smith in separate two trips to the free-throw line tied it at 78 at the end of regulation. The win gave the Red Raiders one more Big 12 victory than they had last season.

Iowa State loses WR Montgomery, RB Thomas

Sports

February 10th, 2016 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State wide receiver D’Vario Montgomery and running back Joshua Thomas won’t return to the team for next season.

The Cyclones say Montgomery has been dismissed for violating team rules. Thomas intends to transfer to another school.

Montgomery was fourth on the team with 27 receptions for 335 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Thomas ran for 295 yards as a freshman. But the rise of Mike Warren, who led all freshmen nationally with 1,339 yards in 2015, likely played a role in Thomas’s decision to leave.

No. 25 Wichita State pounds Drake 74-48

Sports

February 10th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ron Baker and Shaq Morris had 11 points each and No. 25 Wichita State pounded Drake 74-48 on Tuesday night for its 12th win in 13 games. Thirteen players scored for the Shockers (18-5, 12-1 Missouri Valley Conference), who moved within two victories of clinching at least a share of its third straight league title.

Wichita State had little trouble with the Valley’s worst team, rattling off a 27-5 run to close the first half in beating the Bulldogs for the ninth straight time. Reed Timmer scored 20 points for Drake (6-19, 1-12), which lost for the 15th time in 17 games.
