No. 13 Creighton Routs Illinois State 102-74

Sports

February 2nd, 2012 by Jim Field

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Doug McDermott scored 17 of his 25 points in the first half to lead six Creighton players in double figures and the 13th-ranked Bluejays rode a fast start to a 102-74 victory over Illinois State on Wednesday night.

The Bluejays (21-2, 11-1 Missouri Valley Conference) won their 11th straight overall and fourth in a row against the Redbirds (14-9, 6-6).

Creighton broke out to a 17-2 lead making eight straight shots and 10 of its first 11, and McDermott was in double figures inside 8 minutes.

Grant Gibbs had 12 points and seven assists, Jahenns Manigat and Will Artino added 11 points each and Gregory Echenique and Josh Jones had 10 apiece.

Tyler Brown had 21 points, Bryant Allen added 14 and Nic Moore and Jon Ekey had 11 apiece for the Redbirds.

Creighton went over 100 points for the second time this season. The Bluejays scored 104 against Campbell.

Christofferson Leads Cyclones Past Oklahoma State, 73-52

Sports

February 2nd, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Lauren Mansfield got Iowa State going early in the second half as the Cyclones (12-8 overall, 3-6 Big 12) pulled away from Oklahoma State (12-6 overall, 4-5 Big 12) early and beat the Cowgirls 73-52 Wednesday in Hilton Coliseum.

Hallie Christofferson led four Iowa Staters in double figures with 20 points, her third career 20-point performance. Anna Prins had 16 points and a season-high eight rebounds, seven in the first half. Nikki Moody scored 13 points and scored five rebounds and Chelsea Poppens tallied 11 points and a game-high 16 rebounds for Iowa State.

Toni Young led Oklahoma State with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Iowa State held a 30-28 lead at the half but a pair of Mansfield threes in the first two-and-a-half minutes of the second half pushed the advantage to 39-30 and the Cyclones never looked back. Oklahoma State countered with just one basket in the first nine minutes of the second half.

Neither team played particularly well in the first half. The Cyclones hit on just 9-of-33 shots but did swish four threes to offset Oklahoma State’s slightly better accuracy (12-of-33) from the field. Young was the go-to player for the Cowgirls, scoring the last eight points of the first stanza for OSU.  Iowa State had only two first-half turnovers and was getting good looks at the basketball but the shots were not falling before the half.

The Cyclones committed a season-low eight turnovers and dished out 16 assists. Chassidy Cole led the Cyclones with six assists and no turnovers.

Iowa State plays host to Texas Saturday at 1 p.m. CST in Ames.

Iowa tops Minnesota 63-59

Sports

February 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — For about 37 minutes, Iowa and Minnesota played a weird game that leaned slightly toward the Gophers. Then Devyn Marble took over, providing an emphatic finish to a game that wasn’t clear until the final seconds. Senior Matt Gatens scored 18 points, Marble added 12 and Iowa rallied to beat Minnesota 63-59 on Wednesday night and snap a three-game losing streak. Marble keyed Iowa’s 9-0 run to close the game, following a 3-pointer with an emphatic one-handed dunk to tie the game at 59 with 1:43 left. Bryce Cartwright gave the Hawkeyes (12-11, 4-6 Big Ten) the lead with a pair of free throws, and Gatens hit an easy layup off a Marble feed with eight seconds left to seal the victory. Minnesota (16-7, 4-6) lost despite shooting 10 of 19 from 3-point range. Ralph Sampson III had 13 to lead the Gophers, who lost for just the second time in six games.
