CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Meyers Leonard had 22 points and 14 rebounds off the bench as Illinois defeated Iowa 65-54 on Sunday night to end a six-game losing streak. The Illini (17-12, 6-10 Big Ten) hadn’t won in February and had lost nine of 10 since defeating Ohio State in early January. Brandon Paul added 17 points and D.J. Richardson scored 12 for Illinois. Leonard had 15 points by halftime. Matt Gatens powered the Hawkeyes (15-14, 7-9) with 22 points and 5 of 6 shooting from 3-point range. But Gatens was held in check by Paul in the second half, scoring just five points. Illinois led 34-23 at the break and weathered a Hawkeye run that closed the gap to 38-34 early in the second half.

Cardinals giving Tyler Greene chance to win 2nd Base job

February 26th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak would like to see Tyler Greene take over for Skip Schumaker as the team’s regular second baseman. First-year manager Mike Matheny isn’t ready to commit to the switch. A first-round selection out of Georgia Tech in 2005, Greene has yet to earn consistent playing time in the major leagues. A shortstop most of his career, he has been asked to try third base and the outfield over the past couple of springs.
 
Second base is the only starting position up for grabs in Cardinals camp as the team prepares to defend its 2011 World Series championship. A career .270 hitter in the minors, Greene smacked 85 home runs and stole 144 bases in a little more than 600 games. Those numbers have yet to translate into major league success.
