Milwaukee thumps Iowa State 74-56


November 13th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Brock Stull scored 17 points and Milwaukee thumped host Iowa State 74-56 on Monday, the Cyclones’ first defeat in a home opener in 20 years. Brett Prahl scored 14 points and Bryce Nze added 13 for the Panthers (2-0), who were picked to finish eighth in the 10-team Horizon League.

After a promising start, Iowa State fell behind 39-32 by halftime in part because it committed 11 turnovers in just 20 minutes. The Panthers pushed their lead to double digits on a Nze layup that made it 52-41 with 12:05 to go.

Any notion of a comeback from the Cyclones (0-2), who have just one returning starter in Solomon Young, was done in by some dreadful shooting in the second half. Iowa State went just 5 of 20 from the field after the break, and Milwaukee pushed its lead to 64-49 with just under five minutes to go.

Jeff Beverly and Nick Weiler-Babb each had 11 points to lead the Cyclones, who finished with 18 turnovers. They also shot just 3 of 15 from 3-point range and were outrebounded 31-29.

UP NEXT: Iowa State plays Appalachian State on Thursday in the opening round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, which was moved to South Carolina.

November 13th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Juwan McCloud made six 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 18 points to help Northern Iowa roll past Alcorn State 73-45 on Monday night. Tywhon Pickford added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Bennett Koch had 11 points and 13 rebounds for Northern Iowa (1-1), which bounced back from an 86-69 loss to No. 9 North Carolina on Friday night.

A.J. Mosby scored 15 points to lead Alcorn State (0-3). Klint Carlson, who finished with seven points, and McCloud hit back-to-back 3-pointers and the Panthers had a double-digit lead seven minutes into the game. Pickford made a 3-pointer to cap an 18-0 run with 10:36 left before halftime as Northern Iowa built a 37-27 at the break.

Alcorn State pulled to 39-28 with 17:44 to play. A 21-5 run stretched the Panthers’ lead to 28 points with seven minutes left. Northern Iowa made 15 of 27 3-pointers.

Midwest Sports Headlines, 11/13/17


November 13th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

UNDATED (AP) — Nebraska’s 54-21 loss at Minnesota was its fourth in five games and left the Cornhuskers to ponder the possibility of finishing with their fewest wins since 1961. Calls from the fan base imploring new athletic director Bill Moos to make a coaching change are only growing louder. Sports columnists for the state’s two largest newspapers suggested that Moos fire Mike Riley immediately. Nebraska finishes the regular season at Penn State and at home against Iowa.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Newcomer Luke Garza led Iowa’s charge to a 92-58 victory over Alabama State, scoring 11 points to go with 13 rebounds. Though the freshman shot just 2 of 8 from the field, he added seven points from the free throw line on 11 attempts.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Hometown star Trae Young had 15 points and 10 assists in his college debut to help Oklahoma defeat Omaha 108-89. Jamuni McNeace had 14 points and a career-high six blocks and Christian James also scored 14 points for the Sooners.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Sabrina Ionescu had 29 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for her fifth career triple-double, and No. 11 Oregon beat Drake 110-77 in the second round of the preseason WNIT. Ionescu, a sophomore, is just one away from the Pac-12 career record of six, set by Nicole Powell (Stanford, 2001-04) and two shy of the NCAA mark of seven by Suzie McConnell (Penn State, 1985-88) and Louella Tomlinson.

Iowa cruises to 92-58 win over Alabama State


November 12th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Newcomer Luke Garza led Iowa’s charge to a 92-58 victory over Alabama State, scoring 11 points to go with 13 rebounds Sunday. Though the freshman shot just 2 of 8 from the field, he added seven points from the free throw line on 11 attempts.

The Hawkeyes (2-0) found plenty of use out of their bench, as 10 players got at least 10 minutes of playing time. Few members of the team played more than 20 minutes — Cordell Pemsl saw the most time, getting 24 minutes on the floor while putting up 15 points and grabbing five rebounds. Thirteen Hawkeyes got out on the floor, including rarely-used Charlie Rose and Riley Till.

Iowa freshman Connor McCaffery missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle. But McCaffery could make his debut Thursday against Grambling State.


UP NEXT: Iowa hosts Grambling State on Thursday.
