November 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Junior Devyn Marble scored a season-high 22 points and Iowa throttled Howard 66-36 on Thursday night for its third straight win. Aaron White added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hawkeyes (3-0), who cruised despite hitting just four 3s in 21 tries.

Iowa took a 36-16 halftime lead over the overmatched Bison and never looked back. The Hawkeyes held Howard to the fewest points scored against them under third-year coach Fran McCaffery. Mike Phillips had 11 to lead Howard (0-2), a MEAC school coming off a 10-21 season in 2011-12.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Stone Kane barreled into the end zone from a yard out with 1:39 left to give  Wapsie Valley a 21-14 victory over Hinton on Thursday in the Class A state championship game in Cedar Falls. Wapsie Valley (14-0) drove 80 yards in nine plays for the winning touchdown after Hinton’s Matthias Gross-Holtick hooked a 28-yard field goal try. It’s the fifth state title for Wapsie Valley, which also has won championships in Class 1A and 2A. Hinton (10-4), a surprise finalist after winning three road games in the playoffs, saw its final hopes end when Jason Vander Kooi’s pass after a double reserve was intercepted.

Cyclones’ Poppens Named to Naismith Watch List


November 15th, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s Chelsea Poppens has been named to the 2012-13 Naismith Player of the Year women’s early season watch list, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today.

The 50 player watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2012-13 college basketball season.

Poppens, a 6-2 senior from Aplington, Iowa, was the only Big 12 player to average a double-double last season, posting 14.2 points and 10.6 rebounds. She was one of just three players selected unanimously to the 2011-12 All-Big 12 first team.

Poppens started this season where she left off last season, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in Iowa State’s season-opening win against Western Illinois. Poppens was 9-of-15 from the field and tied a career-high with four assists. She also became the 23rd Cyclone to score 1,000 career points.

Poppens and the Cyclones will be back in action Sunday at 1 p.m. against North Dakota.

Cassel to start at QB for Chiefs vs Bengals


November 15th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against Cincinnati because Brady Quinn still has not been cleared to play following a concussion. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said that Quinn feels better and that he could be cleared by the end of the week, but he couldn’t take the chance that he wouldn’t be ready for the Bengals. As a result, Cassel will start his third consecutive game.

Cassel was the starter earlier this year before sustaining his own concussion in a game against Baltimore. Quinn was the fill-in starter for a game, and then got the permanent job, only to be knocked out of his second start against the Raiders. Quinn has been practicing, but Crennel said he’s not been cleared for full contact.
