Sports

February 24th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A random selection process will be used to sell about 10,000 reserved tickets to the College World Series. The NCAA announced Thursday that about 750 tickets will be available for each game through a lottery system. The system requires fans to enter the drawing at www.ncaa.com/cws beginning at 12 a.m. EST on Friday. Those selected can purchase up to four tickets a game at face value for as many as four CWS games. The deadline is March 19. A computerized drawing will be held March 31, and applicants will be notified by email if they are selected.  The CWS is June 15-25/26 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb.

Iowa Upsets Badgers

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Senior Matt Gatens scored a career-high 33 points and Iowa beat No. 16 Wisconsin 67-66 on Thursday night for its second straight win over a ranked opponent.

It was the second straight career-high for Gatens, who had 30 points in Iowa’s win over then-No. 18 Indiana on Sunday.

Wisconsin (20-8, 9-6 Big Ten) lost for just the third time in 11 games. The Badgers got within 65-63 on Jordan Taylor’s layup with 4 seconds left, but Gatens made two free throws to cap his brilliant night for the Hawkeyes (15-13, 7-8).

Taylor’s meaningless 3-pointer at the buzzer was the closest the Badgers would get in the second half.

Josh Gasser and Ryan Evans each had 14 points for Wisconsin, which never led and got swept by Iowa in the regular season for the first time since 1994-95.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Anthony James scored 19 points and Northern Iowa beat Bradley 64-55 Wednesday night. Marc Sonnen had 13 points, Johnny Moran scored 12 and Seth Tuttle had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Panthers (18-12, 8-9 Missouri Valley), who avenged a 78-65 loss last month in Peoria, Ill., that was one of Bradley’s two conference wins. Northern Iowa shot 33 percent in the first half and trailed 30-24 at the break, but made 52 percent from the field after halftime to finish the game at 43 percent. Walt Lemon Jr., who had five 3-pointers, scored a game-high 22 points for the Braves (7-23, 2-15). Jake Eastman, with 10 points, was the only other player in double figures for Bradley, which has lost four in a row.

Simons leads Drake over Southern Illinois 78-63

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ben Simons returned from a five-game absence to score 14 points, leading Drake to a 78-63 victory over Southern Illinois on Wednesday night. The Bulldogs (16-13, 9-8 Missouri Valley) had lost three of their last five games without Simons, the team’s leading scorer, who was sidelined with mononucleosis. Rayvonte Rice led Drake with 19 points. Mamadou Seck scored 20 points and Jeff Early 18 for the Salukis (8-21, 5-12). Forward Dantiel Daniels, one of the MVC’s top freshmen, left the game midway through the first half with a knee injury and did not return. Drake moved into a tie for third in the MVC standings with Missouri State, which lost to Indiana State on Wednesday. However, the Bears hold the tiebreaker due to their season sweep of the Bulldogs. Southern Illinois, which is locked into the No. 9 seed in next week’s MVC tournament, set a school record for losses in a season.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Scott Christopherson and Melvin Ejim each scored 17 points and Iowa State pulled away for a 72-54 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday night, reaching 20 wins for the first time in eight years. Royce White had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Cyclones (20-8, 10-5 Big 12), who also earned 10 wins in the Big 12 for the first time since 2001. Iowa State struggled at times against the Big 12′s worst team, though. The Cyclones trailed by four at halftime, let the Red Raiders shoot nearly 46 percent and didn’t push their lead into double digits until just over 6 minutes were left. Jaye Crockett had 17 points for the Red Raiders (8-19, 1-14), who remain winless on the road in the Big 12.
