ISU Guard Christopherson on Lowe’s Watch List

Sports

November 4th, 2011 by Jim Field

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Iowa State senior guard Scott Christopherson is one of 30 men’s basketball candidates eligible for the 2011-12 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence- community, classroom, character and competition.
A native of LaCrosse, Wis., Christopherson averaged 13.7 ppg and made 86 3-pointers while earning All-Big 12 honorable mention honors in 2010-11. Christopherson, who is Iowa State’s all-time leader in 3-point percentage (43.7 pct.), achieved over a 3.5 GPA in finance in the spring of 2011 and has been extremely active in the Ames community in his four years at Iowa State.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
The 30 men’s basketball candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, Division I men’s and women’s coaches and fans who will select one finalist who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
For more information on all of the candidates, visit seniorCLASSaward.com.

Hawkeyes Search for Answers After Minnesota Loss

Sports

November 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa was let down by its offense, defense and special teams against Minnesota last week and wound up with one of the worst losses of Kirk Ferentz’s 13-year tenure as coach.  Iowa hosts Michigan (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) on Saturday looking to bounce back from a stunning 22-21 loss to the Gophers. Ferentz says it was his fault the Gophers recovered an onside kick that led to the winning touchdown because he failed to call timeout just before the kick.  Ferentz also says the Hawkeyes (5-3, 2-2) aren’t playing defense well enough. The Hawkeyes need just one win in their last four games to earn bowl eligibility.

Time Running Out for Kansas to Turn Things Around

Sports

November 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Time is running out on Kansas to pick up its first Big 12 win of the season. Its first road win under second-year coach Turner Gill, too.  Just maybe, time is running out on Gill altogether.  The Jayhawks (2-6) have lost six straight by an average of 34 points, and the closest they’ve come to winning away from home was a 31-16 loss to Southern Miss early last season. They get another chance – perhaps their best remaining chance – on Saturday at Iowa State, which is coming off a where-did-that-come-from 41-7 romp over Texas Tech last week.  After that, the Jayhawks finish up with Baylor’s high-powered offense in Lawrence, a tough trip to Texas A&M and the annual Border Showdown against Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium.

West Virginia Holds Big 12 Welcoming Party

Sports

November 2nd, 2011 by Jim Field

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – Interim Big 12 Commissioner Chuck Neinas says he expects West Virginia to start play in the conference next season despite the Big East’s attempts to keep the university from a quick exit.  Neinas attended a reception in Morgantown officially welcoming the Mountaineers into the Big 12 on Tuesday. A day earlier, the university sued the Big East, seeking to clear the way for it to
start Big 12 play next fall. The Big East has said it plans to keep West Virginia for two more years West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck and university President James Clements declined comment on the lawsuit. Neinas says he’s not concerned about the lawsuit because he has confidence in Luck and Clements.
