Succop Approaching Chiefs Field Goal Record

Sports

December 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop can move atop the franchise list for consecutive made field goals if he hits two more on Saturday against Oakland. After a rough start to the season, Succop has made 21 in a row. Pete Stoyanovich has the franchise mark of 22 straight, ahead of such greats as Hall of Famer Jan Stenerud, Nick Lowery and Morten Anderson, the NFL’s all-time leading scorer. Succop was 4 for 4 last Sunday against Green Bay, helping the Chiefs knock off the previously unbeaten Packers 19-14. He also kicked the winner in overtime earlier this season against San Diego.

December 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has signed three new football players who will enroll next semester and participate in spring ball. Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads says defensive end Cory Morrissey and defensive backs T.J. Mutcherson and Clifford Stokes and defensive end Corey Morrisey have signed to play for Iowa State. Morrissey, a former star at nearby Gilbert High, played last season at Iowa Western and will be a sophomore in 2012. Mutcherson attended Hillsborough Community College in Florida but didn’t play football. The former prep star from Tampa will be a freshman in 2012. Stokes, a junior from Trinity Valley Community College, chose Iowa State over offers from Baylor, Houston, Kansas and Minnesota.

McCall remains suspended for Insight Bowl

Sports

December 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says freshman running back Mika’il McCall will remain on suspension for the Dec. 30 Insight Bowl against Oklahoma. Ferentz said Wednesday during a weekly radio show that McCall’s suspension wouldn’t be lifted for the bowl game. McCall was suspended prior to the Nov. 25 against Nebraska for an undetermined violation. The Hawkeyes will also be without leading rusher Marcus Coker against the Sooners. Coker, who rushed for 1,384 yards this season, was suspended Tuesday for a violation of the university’s student code of conduct. None of Iowa’s remaining backs have gained more than 79 yards rushing this season.

Hawks prepare for final non-conference test tonight

Sports

December 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa basketball team will close out the non-conference portion of its schedule tonight (Thursday) by hosting Boise State. The Hawkeyes are 7-5 after a 105-64 win over Central Arkansas on Monday night and take on a Boise State team that is 9-3. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says this will be a tough test heading into the start of the Big Ten race. McCaffrey told his team immediately after the Central Arkansas game that they better play well against the Broncos. McCaffrey says he doesn’t know if his guys fully understood they would be playing a team that is 9-3, that has “really good players,” and is one of the most impressive teams he’s watched on film. He says after his talk with the players, he thinks they understand the Broncos are one of the better teams on the schedule right now. Tonight’s mens’ game will be the second half of a doubleheader in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. In the opener the Iowa women play Mississippi Valley State.

Christopherson leads Iowa St. past Lipscomb 81-64

Sports

December 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State fans gave Lipscomb’s Jordan Burgason a standing ovation when he left the game for good. It might have been partly from relief because with the Ames native finally on the bench, he couldn’t do any more damage. Burgason tied a Hilton Coliseum record with nine 3-point baskets and scored 30 points, but Iowa State got a season-high 24 points from Scott Christopherson and 23 from Chris Allen to beat the Bison 81-64 Wednesday night for its fourth straight victory. Burgason, whose father Steve played at Iowa State from 1974-78, hit 10 of 16 shots, including 9 of 14 from 3-point range. He fell one point short of matching his career high.  Lipscomb (6-8) was playing the fourth of seven straight road games. The Bison have lost all four.

Drake led just 11-9 with 14:38 left in the first half before it started to pull away. The Bulldogs shot 56 percent from the field in the first half and converted 10 Bears turnovers into 21 points to lead 49-30 at the break. Drake led by as many as 25 in the second half.
