VCU tops No. 23 Nothern Iowa in double overtime


December 14th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Treveon Graham scored 21 points, including a tightly contested 3-pointer in the second overtime, and VCU sent No. 23 Northern Iowa to its first loss, 93-87 on Saturday night. Briante Weber added 14 points and Melvin Johnson 12 for the Rams (6-3), who beat a ranked team for the first time since topping Number 16 Saint Louis on March 1st, 2014.

The Panthers (9-1), looking to tie the best start in school history, got a career-best 27 points from Wes Washpun. But he fouled out when Weber drew a charge call with 49 seconds to play, taking away the Panthers’ best offensive option.

Matt Bohannon added 18 points, including a 3-pointer to force the second overtime, for the Panthers. Seth Tuttle, UNI’s leading scorer with a 16-point average, managed only five in only 21 minutes of the fast-paced game.

Iowa State defensive lineman Cousin suspended


December 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State defensive lineman Devlyn Cousin has been suspended indefinitely from the team after being arrested and charged with simple domestic assault. A police report shows Cousin was arrested late Friday night on charges of domestic assault and obstruction of emergency communication.

In a written statement Saturday, Cyclones football coach Paul Rhoads said he was aware of the charges filed against Cousin and that Cousin had been suspended indefinitely under the school’s student-athlete discipline policy as the school gathers more information on the case.

Ames police tell The Des Moines Register that Cousin was arrested for pushing his girlfriend to the ground as she called 911. The 6-foot-2, 290-pound Cousin played in nine games this year, racking up 12 tackles.
