Sports Headline: Seahawks, Patriots advance…Grizzlies get Green from Celtics…Two Ducks suspended


January 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes and Kam Chancellor returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown as the Seahawks beat the Carolina Panthers 31-17 to advance to the NFC title game. The Seahawks never trailed, but they weren’t able to pull away until they scored 17 straight points in the fourth quarter to go ahead 31-10. The Seahawks are the first defending Super Bowl champion to win a playoff game the following season since New England in January 2006.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England is in the AFC title game for the fourth straight year after Tom Brady threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell with 5:13 remaining to complete the Patriots’ comeback in a 35-31 triumph over Baltimore. The Ravens led 28-14 late in the third quarter before Brady threw two of his three scoring passes. The Pats tied the game on wide receiver Julian Edelman’s 51-yard pass to Danny Amendola with 4:20 left in the third quarter.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green in a three-way swap with New Orleans. A person familiar with the situation says Tayshaun Prince would go Boston and Quincy Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans. The trade also would send Austin Rivers from the Pelicans to the Celtics, and Russ Smith from New Orleans to the Grizzlies.

DALLAS (AP) — Oregon coach Mark Helfrich says wide receiver Darren Carrington and running back Ayele Forde will not play in Monday’s national championship game against Ohio State after positive NCAA drug tests. Carrington tested positive for marijuana, and results of Ford’s test were not immediately clear.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have acquired infielders Ben Zobrist (ZOH’-brihst) and Yunel (yoo-NEHL’) Escobar from the Tampa Bay Rays for catcher John Jaso (JAY’-soh), cash and minor leaguers Daniel Robertson and Boog Powell. Zobrist is an All-Star who hit .272 with 10 home runs last season, while Escobar compiled a .258 average with seven home runs and 39 RBIs. Jaso batted .264 with nine homers and 40 ribbies before missing the last five weeks of the season with a concussion.

Iowa State stuns No. 3 Texas 59-57


January 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) —Seanna Johnson hit a layup with 19 seconds left, and Number 3 Texas’s unbeaten start is history after Iowa State rallied from an 18-point deficit to stun third-ranked Texas 59-57 on Saturday. Nikki Moody had 17 points to lead Iowa State (11-3, 2-1 Big 12), which defeated a top-three team at home for the first time in 12 years. The way the Cyclones did it sure was a head scratcher though.

Texas led by 37-19 late in the first half. But Iowa State answered with a 38-13 run and the Longhorns went cold in the second half, hitting just 8 of 38 shots. Iowa State plays at Number 5 Baylor on Tuesday.

No. 17 Iowa State edges No. 14 West Virginia 74-72


January 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Abdel Nader scored 19 points to lead Number 17 Iowa State to a 74-72 victory over 14th ranked West Virginia Saturday night. For the second time in four days, Iowa State (12-2, 2-0 Big 12) won a game that came down to the final seconds. The Cyclones beat Oklahoma State 63-61 on Tuesday night after Dustin Hogue blocked Tavarius Shine’s 3-point try with under a second left.

Leading scorer Georges Niang had his best game in nearly a month with 16 points for the Cyclones. Hogue added 11 points. Juwan Staten scored 23 points for West Virginia (14-2, 2-1). Devin Williams had 14 points and 15 rebounds, and Jaysean Paige added 10 points.

Iowa State twice squandered eight-point leads but pulled out the win by making three free throws in the final 13 seconds.

Northern Iowa crushes Drake 64-40


January 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Jeremy Morgan scored 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds as Northern Iowa crushed Drake 64-40 on Saturday. Deon Mitchell added 14 points for the Panthers (14-2, 3-1 Missouri Valley Conference) and Seth Tuttle had 12. The team sank 59.5 percent from the field overall with 9 of 19 3-pointers and outrebounded Drake 29-16.

Drake went up 14-5 early on a Reed Trimmer 3-pointer with 13:24 left in the first period. Northern Iowa came back to lead 31-29 at the break. The Panthers jumped to a 46-31 advantage to start the second period on a 15-2 run capped by a Morgan dunk and 3-pointer. A 13-0 run followed, taking it to 59-31 with 7:47 left to play and Northern Iowa rolled to the win. The Bulldogs scored just three field goals in the entire second half.

Trimmer led the Bulldogs (3-13, 0-4) with 13 points and three rebounds in Des Moines.

The Iowa pups — Blue, Falcor, Kojak, Lorelai, Scarlet and Columbo — are all from the Heinz 57 Pet Rescue based in DeSoto. The dogs were sent to New York in October for the show’s taping. This marks the fourth year in a row that animals from the Heinz 57 Pet Rescue have taken part in the Puppy Bowl.
