Iowa Gets Another Road Win, 64-62 Over Minnesota

Sports

January 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For the first time in five seasons, Iowa has back-to-back Big Ten victories on the road. The Hawkeyes were determined and poised enough to overcome an 11-point deficit at Minnesota late in the first half and even endure six straight missed free throws in the final 40 seconds. The Gophers simply lost their way — and their confidence. Matt Gatens had 19 points, six rebounds and three steals to lead Iowa’s second-half surge past Minnesota for a 64-62 win on Wednesday night. Maverick Ahanmisi’s runner from the edge of the lane in traffic bounced off the other side of the rim as the buzzer sounded, giving the Hawkeyes (10-6, 2-1) their first win over their border-state rival in five years. Fueled by a head-turning victory at then-No. 11 Wisconsin last weekend, the Hawkeyes hounded the Gophers into 4 for 23 shooting from 3-point range and forced 6-foot-11 center Ralph Sampson III into six turnovers. Up next for Iowa is a home game against No. 6 Ohio State, then a trip to No. 10 Michigan State, followed by a visit from No. 16 Michigan.

 

Iowa OT Reiff Declares for NFL Daft

Sports

January 4th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa offensive tackle Riley Reiff has announced he has declared for the NFL draft.

The Gazette in Cedar Rapids reports the 23-year-old native of Parkston, S.D., confirmed his decision Tuesday.

The 6-foot 6-inch 300 pound Reiff was a first-team all-Big Ten pick this fall and second-team as a junior. He is projected by many to be a first-round pick.

He played four years for the Hawkeyes, starting for nearly three full-seasons. He was red-shirted his freshman year, keeping him eligible for four more seasons, and next season would have been his final year of eligibility.

Iowa State Hires Messingham as Offensive Coordinator

Sports

January 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has named wide receivers coach Courtney Messingham as its offensive coordinator. Messingham replaces Tom Herman, who left to become the offensive coordinator for Urban Meyer at Ohio State. Messingham has spent three seasons under coach Paul Rhoads, coaching tight ends in 2009 and 2010. Messingham is a Waterloo, Iowa native and played at Northern Iowa. He was the head coach at Upper Iowa from 2003-04 and an assistant at Southern Mississippi and Missouri State before joining the Cyclones. Rhoads says in a statement that Messingham has earned the promotion through his hard work as a  coach and recruiter. Rhoads says there’s no timetable for hiring a receivers coach to replace Messingham.

January 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Doug McDermott had 24 points and Creighton never trailed in rolling to a 76-59 victory over Drake Tuesday night. The Bluejays (12-2, 2-1 Missouri Valley), who fell out of the Top 25 on Monday, scored the game’s first 11 points and held a double-digit lead from the 12:49 mark in the first half. McDermott was 9 for 12 from the field and made all six of his free throws. He also had seven rebounds, matching the game’s highest total. Antoine Young had 18 points and six assists, and Gregory Echenique contributed 10 points and four blocked shots for Creighton, which shot 60 percent from the floor in the game. Ben Simons had 17 points and was the only player in double figures for Drake (8-6, 1-2). The Bulldogs shot 37 percent from the field.

Sports

January 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly says starting guard Jessica Schroll has abruptly left the team. Fennelly tells the Ames Tribune that Schroll, a junior, informed him she was seeking to transfer on Saturday. The university released a statement shortly after last Friday’s win over New Hampshire that Schroll was taking a leave of absence for personal reasons. Schroll averaged 6.9 points a game and had 10 starts for the Cyclones this season. Iowa State (9-2) opens Big 12 play at Oklahoma on Wednesday night.
