ISU police issue warrants in locker room theft

Sports

December 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State police have issued arrest warrants in connection with a burglary that occurred in Iowa’s locker room during a football game against the Cyclones. The Des Moines Register reports that warrants for second-degree theft and second-degree burglary were issued on Dec. 12 for 23-year-old Nicholas Beary. Beary’s last known residence was West Des Moines, but police said they believe Beary may have fled the country.

Rob Bowers, the associate director of Iowa State’s Department of Public Safety, said Beary once attended the University of Iowa and attended the Sept. 14 game as a fan. Nine Iowa football players and coaches had items, including cellphones and cash, stolen during a 27-21 win over Iowa State in Ames.

Chiefs’ Reid could rest starters against Chargers

Sports

December 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs coach Andy Reid says he hasn’t decided whether to rest his starters on Sunday against San Diego, even though Kansas City has nothing to gain by winning the game. The Chiefs already are assured of the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, which means they’ll head on the road for a wild-card game in two weeks.

If history is any indication, get ready to see Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles spend a whole lot of time on the sideline. Same with the Chiefs’ other key players on both sides of the ball. When presented with similar situations in Philadelphia, Reid mostly rested his players in Week 17. That included the 2004 season, when the Eagles advanced to the Super Bowl.

9 former Chiefs players join brain injury lawsuit

Sports

December 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Two NFL Hall of Famers are among nine former Kansas City Chiefs players who have joined a lawsuit that contends the team hid the risks of permanent brain injuries from repeated concussions.

Cornerback Albert Lewis and defensive end Art Still were added Saturday to the lawsuit initially filed this month on behalf of five former Chiefs players. Also joining the suit are Dino Hackett, Todd McNair, Fred Jones, Tim Barnett, Walker Lee Ashley, Emile Harry and Chris Smith.

All 14 plaintiffs were on the team between 1987 and 1993, a period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL.  The amended lawsuit also adds claims that artificial-surface fields during part of that time contributed to concussions.

No. 17 Iowa State beats George Mason 79-67

Sports

December 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

HONOLULU (AP) — Georges Niang scored 22 points and Number 17 Iowa State beat George Mason 79-67 on Sunday in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic. The Cyclones (9-0) had their second-lowest scoring game of the season but still managed to extend their winning streak. Iowa State was one of 10 undefeated teams in Division I at the start of Sunday.

Three minutes into the second half, Niang stole the ball from Marko Gujanicic and his layup gave Iowa State its first 10-point lead at 40-30. After that, George Mason (5-5) pulled no closer than five points with 6:18 left.

Iowa State made just three of 14 3-point attempts in the first half (21 percent) but the Cyclones used a 10-2 run to avoid their worst half in any game this season.

December 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Josh Oglesby scored 13 points in his season debut and No. 25 Iowa rolled to an 85-61 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Sunday. The Hawkeyes (11-2) opened their final non-conference game with a 39-5 run. Jarrod Uthoff scored 16 points and Adam Woodbury added 10. Oglesby missed Iowa’s first 12 games with a broken foot. He made his first four 3-pointers during a 6-minute stretch in the first half— drawing a loud ovation from the fans in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Tevin Hammond scored 19 points for Pine Bluff (2-9), which lost its ninth straight. The Hawkeyes shot 75 percent from the field in taking a 52-15 halftime lead. Iowa committed a season-worst 27 turnovers but dominated the rebounding 42-27. The Golden Eagles shot 33 percent from the field overall.

Iowa opens Big Ten play on Dec. 31 against Nebraska. Iowa held a moment of silence before the game for Pam Culver, the school’s longtime basketball secretary who died Saturday.

Luck, Brown lead Colts past Chiefs 23-7

Sports

December 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Andrew Luck threw for 241 yards and a touchdown, Donald Brown ran 51 yards for another score and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Kansas City Chiefs 23-7 on Sunday in a potential preview of an AFC wild-card playoff game.

The Colts (10-5) took advantage of four turnovers by the Chiefs (11-4) to win for the fifth time in their last six tries against Kansas City. If Indianapolis ends up as the No. 4 seed and the Chiefs the No. 5 for the playoffs, they’ll meet again at Lucas Oil Stadium in two weeks.

Alex Smith threw for 153 yards for Kansas City, but he also lost a fumble and was picked off twice. He had thrown just six interceptions in the first 14 games.

Jamaal Charles ran for 106 yards and the game’s opening touchdown, but Kansas City failed to keep him involved as the Colts scored the final 23 points.
