Iowa State beats No. 13 Oklahoma State 87-76

March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Senior Will Clyburn scored 20 points and Iowa State beat No. 13 Oklahoma State 87-76 on Wednesday night to bolster its NCAA tournament hopes. Georges Niang added 18 points for the Cyclones (20-10, 10-7 Big 12), who notched just their second victory over a ranked opponent. Oklahoma State trailed by as many as 15 points, but Marcus Smart’s reverse dunk made it 70-68 with 4:28 left. Clyburn answered with a 3 and Tyrus McGee’s 3 a minute later put the Cyclones ahead 78-68.

Smart was brilliant for Oklahoma State (22-7, 12-5), scoring 24 points with eight rebounds and five steals. But it wasn’t enough as the Cowboys lost for just the second time in 12 games.

Westbrook sharp in win for Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Jake Westbrook showed no ill effects of the bruised knee that forced him to leave his first spring start after one inning, limiting the Miami Marlins to a run and four hits over three innings of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 7-2 win Wednesday. Matt Holliday had a two-run homer, one of five long balls for the Cardinals. Top prospect Oscar Taveras put St. Louis on top in the second inning, connecting for a two-run homer to center field off Tom Koehler. Ronny Cedeno, Matt Adams and Rob Johnson also homered for St. Louis.

Koehler didn’t help his effort to make the ball club, failing to get out of the third inning. Koehler allowed four runs, seven hits and walked two batters in 2 1-3 innings.

Dorsey hits ground running as Chiefs’ new GM

Sports

March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

John Dorsey hasn’t wasted any time since he was hired to replace Scott Pioli as the general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, making a series of bold moves to shore up the roster. Dorsey said in a phone interview with The Associated Press late Wednesday that the decision to sign wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt to long-term deals, and place the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert, are all part of a plan he set out upon his arrival.

The Chiefs have also traded for San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith and restructured the contract of defensive lineman Tyson Jackson, though Dorsey could not comment on either of the moves because the new league year doesn’t begin until Tuesday.

Chiefs release right tackle Eric Winston

March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs made another move in their roster overhaul under new leadership Wednesday night, releasing right tackle Eric Winston after only one season. The team had not announced the move, but Winston said on Twitter: “Just wanted to confirm that I have been released.” Winston went on to say that although he had a difficult season, “I wouldn’t trade the relationships I made in KC and the overall experience I had for anything.”

Winston signed a four-year, $22 million deal last offseason, but he struggled early in the year and then ran afoul of some fans after he criticized a small percentage for cheering when embattled quarterback Matt Cassel sustained a head injury during a game. Winston would have made $4.9 million in base salary this season. The move saves the Chiefs $6.5 million against the salary cap.

Marble leads Iowa past Illinois for 63-55 victory

Sports

March 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Devyn Marble scored 21 points and Iowa beat Illinois 63-55 on Tuesday night for its fifth win in seven games. Josh Oglesby added 10 for the surging Hawkeyes (19-11, 8-9 Big Ten). They tied a school record with 12 blocked shots, including six from Gabe Olaseni off the bench.

Oglesby buried back-to-back 3-pointers to turn a two-point lead into a 54-46 cushion with 3:19 left. D.J. Richardson then missed a dunk and Marble followed with a three-point play that put Iowa ahead by 11 with 1:39 to go.

Brandon Paul had 18 points to lead Illinois (21-10, 8-9), which lost for just the second time in eight games. The Illini shot just 28.6 percent from the field.

Chiefs restructure contract of lineman Jackson

Sports

March 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have restructured the contract of defensive end Tyson Jackson, freeing up space under the salary cap as free agency approaches. Jackson has become a valuable part of the defensive line, but not the star the Chiefs hoped when they selected him third overall in the 2009 draft. Partly as a result of that high selection, Jackson would have made $14.72 million and counted $17.5 million toward the cap this season.

The details of his restructured deal were not available, but it should leave more flexibility for new Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid to pursue free agents. Dorsey and Reid have been busy the past couple weeks, trading with the 49ers for quarterback Alex Smith, signing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt to five-year deals, and putting the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert to keep him in Kansas City.
