Like bicycling? Like bacon? The Bacoon Ride may be just for you…

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

January 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

If you can’t devote a full week of your life to riding a bicycle across Iowa on RAGBRAI, you can get a taste of the long-distance biking festival — and more than a taste of bacon — during a new event this summer. Mark Wyatt, executive director of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, says the Bacoon (bay-COON) Ride will be a one-day, 72-mile excursion starting and ending in the central Iowa town of Waukee.  “We’re going to try to take advantage of every town along the Raccoon River Valley Trail,” Wyatt says. “There will be event specials and special things for registered riders along the way.”

The ride is scheduled for June 28th. Along the oval-shaped trail, riders will go through the towns of: Waukee, Ortonville, Adel, Redfield, Linden, Panora, Yale, Herndon, Jamaica, Dawson, Perry, Minburn and Dallas Center. Much like the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa, Wyatt says each community along the Bacoon Ride will be rewarding cyclists with treats, except instead of pie, this event will all be bacon-oriented.

 “We’re starting the morning with bacon-flavored donuts,” Wyatt says, “and there should be everything from a hog roast and bacon cheeseburgers and all kinds of different food opportunities along the way.” Proceeds from the ride will benefit the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, RAGBRAI’s Dream Team and other Iowa charities.

No. 5 Wichita State rolls past Drake 78-61

Sports

January 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Cleanthony Early scored 19 points, Ron Baker added 14 and fifth-ranked Wichita State stayed perfect with a 78-61 win over Drake on Saturday. Nick Wiggins had 11 points for the visiting Shockers (21-0, 8-0 MVC). Wichita State outscored Drake 28-15 to open the second half, turning a relatively close game into a rout.

The Shockers have now won four straight by at least 15 points after an overtime scare at Missouri State two weeks ago. Aaron Hawley had 16 points to lead Drake (11-9, 2-6), which lost for the sixth time in seven games.

No. 20 Iowa State women top Texas Tech 85-76 in OT

Sports

January 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Nikki Moody scored nine of her nine of 20 points in overtime and No. 20 Iowa State held off Texas Tech 85-76 Saturday night. Moody opened the overtime with a 3-pointer and, after Ivonne Cook-Taylor hit a jumper 27 seconds later, knocked down a jumper to give the Cyclones a 77-74 lead. After layups by Seanna Johnson — on which Moody assisted — and Moody pushed the Cyclones’ lead to 81-74, Amber Battle answered with a layup that would prove to be the Lady Raiders’ final points.

Iowa State (15-4, 4-4 Big 12) held Tech (6-13, 0-8) without a field goal for 3:13 in overtime and opened the extra frame with a 9-2 run. Moody’s jumper with 34 seconds left in regulation gave Iowa State a 72-70 advantage, but Battle tied the game 14 seconds later. Iowa State missed two shots in the final seconds.

Battle finished with 24 points.

Sports

January 25th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) – Milton Doyle scored eight of his 28 points in overtime to lift Loyola of Chicago to a 93-87 overtime victory over Northern Iowa on Saturday. Doyle hit a 3-pointer and was 5 of 6 from the line as Loyola outscored Northern Iowa 17-11 in overtime.  Doyle finished 8 of 11 from the field and made 10 of his 11 free throws attempts.

Loyola of Chicago trailed the entire second half until Christian Thomas made a pair of free throws to tie it at 76 with 18 seconds to play.  With 4 seconds remaining, Deon Mitchell missed a shot and Seth Tuttle missed the putback for Northern Iowa to send the game into overtime.  Thomas finished with 20 points for Loyola of Chicago (8-12, 3-5 Missouri Valley).

Mitchell scored 23 points, and Tuttle added 17 to lead Northern Iowa (10-10, 4-4 Missouri Valley).
