An injury thrusts Burton into spotlight for Iowa St

Sports

December 18th, 2015 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State had hoped to ease Marquette transfer Deonte Burton into its rotation.

The loss of Naz Mitrou-Long for the season did away with that luxury.

Burton, a 6-foot-4 swing player, will be counted on as a key contributor for the fifth-ranked Cyclones (9-0) starting with Saturday’s game against Northern Iowa (6-3) in Des Moines.

Burton, a sophomore, averaged 6.9 points in 32 games at Marquette. He was named the Big 12 preseason newcomer of the year.

 

Cyclones pick up offensive line transfer

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State received a major boost on its offensive line with the addition of Rhode Island transfer Tyler Catalina, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell announced today.

Catalina, who will graduate from Rhode Island in May, signed his financial aid agreement and will enroll in graduate school at Iowa State in the summer. Catalina will have one season of eligibility as a graduate transfer in 2016.

“First and foremost Tyler is a guy that is proven,” Campbell said. “To do what he’s done in his career at Rhode Island is exceptional. He understands what it’s like to play consistent at an elite level. He brings the understanding of what it takes to play at a high level into our program, and that is critical for us as we continue to move forward. I am proud and honored to have him join us.”

A native of Worcester, Mass., Catalina started at least 10 games in each of the last three seasons at Rhode Island, amassing a total of 33 career starts at both right tackle and left tackle.

The 6-6, 298-pounder was a two-time all-conference selection for the Rams, earning second-team All-CAA honors as a junior and third-team accolades as a sophomore. He was a preseason FCS All-America pick in 2015.

Catalina, who was voted a team captain by his teammates in 2015, prepped at Wachusett Regional High School, helping his team win a pair of state titles. He was an all-state selection by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

Yadier Molina undergoes 2nd thumb surgery, in cast 4-5 weeks

Sports

December 17th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has undergone a second operation on his injured left thumb and will be in a cast for 4-5 weeks. The second surgery took place because Molina was still experiencing discomfort in the thumb. The first operation came in mid-October after the Cardinals were eliminated by the Chicago Cubs in the NL Division Series.

The team is hopeful the eight-time Gold Glove winner and seven-time All-Star can return by opening day. After the first procedure, they had anticipated he would be ready for spring training. The 33-year-old Molina returned for the playoffs after injuring the thumb while tagging out the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo at the plate in Chicago on Sept. 20.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Jake White scored 17 points, on 7-of-10 shooting, and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Tre’Shawn Thurman had 10 points and a career-high 14 boards to help Nebraska-Omaha beat Simpson (Iowa) 81-71 Wednesday night.

Kyler Erickson scored a career-high 13 and Tim Smallwood had 10 points for Omaha (6-5). The Mavericks outrebounded Simpson 56-33, including 23-5 on the offensive glass. White scored the final six points in an 8-0 run to give Omaha a 35-20 lead with 8:16 left in the first half. Simpson’s Austin Turner hit a 3 just more than a minute later but the Storm went scoreless for five-plus minutes as the Mavericks pushed their lead to 27 with 1:55 left before halftime.

Omaha shot just 41 percent from the field and made 14 of 25 free throws. Simpson was 2 of 2 from the line. Ryan Skaar scored 18 — all on 3-pointers — to lead Simpson, a Division Three school.

Iowa State signs 5 junior college players

Sports

December 16th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has signed five junior college players to bolster the Cyclones in 2016. Iowa State announced Wednesday that Campbell has brought in two defensive backs, a pair of linemen and a tight end. All five will enroll for the spring semester.

Perhaps the most intriguing new Iowa State player is defensive back D’Andre Payne, a former four-star recruit who played at Tennessee as a freshman in 2014 before redshirting last year at a junior college.

The linemen are Oge Odeogu and Karson Green, the tight end is Clifford Fernandez and the other defensive back is Thadd Daniels.
