Big 12 to send 9 teams to postseason

Sports

November 27th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The health of the Big 12 has been a topic of debate since Nebraska and Colorado kicked off a four-team exodus a few years back. Judging by the results in 2012, the league is actually stronger than ever, if smaller. Nine of the Big 12’s 10 teams, including newcomers West Virginia and TCU, are already bowl eligible.

The league’s 90 percent success rate is by far the best in the country — and that’s with an extra league game for each school and a week left to play.

At 1-10, Chiefs taking approach that they’re 10-1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It’s Week 12 and the Kansas City Chiefs already have nothing to lose. They’ve dropped eight straight games to be officially eliminated from playoff contention. They lead the NFL in turnovers, haven’t scored a touchdown in more than 11 quarters and still have just one lonely win during one of the worst seasons in franchise history. Time to throw caution to the wind, right? Not exactly.

Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel on Monday defended his decision to keep kicking field goals on fourth-and-short situations in a 17-9 loss to the Broncos over the weekend. Crennel said it was more important to put points on the board than risk getting nothing.

November 26th, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa- Iowa State head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced today that Daniel Edozie, a 6-8, 235-pound power forward from Tyler Junior College (Texas), has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Iowa State for the 2013-14 season. Edozie is a sophomore at TJC and will have two years of eligibility at Iowa State.

Edozie joins a group of four Cyclones who have already signed letters of intent to play basketball at Iowa State next season in Monte Morris (6-1, 195, Fr., Flint, Mich.), Matt Thomas (6-4, 190, Fr., Onalaska, Wis.), Richard Amardi (6-9, 225, Sr., Scarborough, Ontario) and Dustin Hogue (6-6, 205, Jr., Yonkers, N.Y.).

“We are very happy to have Daniel join our program,” Hoiberg said. “He brings toughness and strength to our program and he is a versatile defender.”

Edozie, who is from Compton, Calif., averaged 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds as a freshman at Tyler in 2011-12. The strong forward is averaging 10.1 points and 8.1 rebounds in 10 games for Tyler this season. He had 12 boards in Tyler’s last game vs. Houston Community College.

Iowa State’s 2013-14 recruiting class is considered one of the best in the nation, including a spot at No. 24 in the ESPN rankings.

Grinnell’s Taylor finishes with 21 in loss

Sports

November 26th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — Jack Taylor’s encore for his record-setting performance was OK, just nowhere near his previous game. Taylor scored 21 points, but Grinnell College lost 131-116 to William Penn on Sunday night. He was 6 for 21 from the field, making 3 of 13 attempts from 3-point range, in the first loss of the season for the Pioneers (3-1).

Everyone from LeBron James to Carmelo Anthony was talking about Taylor after he scored 138 points on Tuesday night, shattering the NCAA record of 113 set by Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis against Hillsdale in 1954. He was 52 of 108 from the floor in the memorable performance, including 27 for 71 from 3-point range.

William Penn (12-0) was 50 of 80 from the floor and had seven players score in double figures.
