Manning leads Broncos to 27-17 win over KC


November 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning went virtually untouched by Kansas City’s sack-happy defense Sunday night, throwing for 323 yards and a touchdown to lead the Denver Broncos to a 27-17 victory over the NFL’s last undefeated team. The Chiefs, who came into the game with a league-leading 36 sacks, barely breathed on Manning, who finished 24 for 40.

The Broncos tied Kansas City at 9-1 atop the AFC West with a rematch set in two weeks. Denver fell short of its league-leading average of 41.2 points but the Chiefs, who came in allowing a NFL-low 12.8 per game, couldn’t keep up. Alex Smith threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas City, which hadn’t lost since a 38-3 setback in Denver last December to close out a 2-14 season.


DENVER (AP) — Kansas City defensive end Mike DeVito and Denver safety Rahim Moore were knocked out with injuries in the first half of the Chiefs-Broncos showdown Monday night. DeVito injured his left knee on a short run by Knowshon Moreno in the first quarter and walked off on his own after staying down for a minute.

Moore left the game in the second quarter with what the Broncos called only a lower-leg injury. It wasn’t clear on what play Moore got hurt. Both players were ruled out for the second half. Denver led 17-10 at halftime.


Iowa State beats No. 7 Michigan 77-70


November 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Melvin Ejim scored 22 points and Iowa State beat No. 7 Michigan 77-70 Sunday, spoiling Wolverines star Mitch McGary’s season debut. Naz Long added 16 for the Cyclones (3-0), who held McGary to just one point in the second half while notching one of their biggest wins under coach Fred Hoiberg.

McGary, a preseason first-team All-American who missed two games with a lower back injury, finished with nine points and six rebounds. Nik Stauskas led Michigan (2-1) with 20 points and Derrick Walton Jr. had 13. Glenn Robinson III was held to 12 points on 4 of 14 shooting.

Ejim, who also played for the first time after missing two games with a hyperextended left knee, added nine rebounds as Iowa State closed the game on a 23-10 run.

Jack Taylor scores 109 points for Grinnell


November 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — Jack Taylor renewed his membership in the Century Club. Taylor scored 109 points for Division III Grinnell College on Sunday, shooting 24-for-48 on 3-pointers in a 173-123 win over Crossroads. The 5-foot-10 guard from Black River Falls, Wis., set an NCAA record for any level by scoring 138 points last Nov. 20 in a 179-104 win over Faith Baptist Bible College.

The only other player to score more than 109 in an NCAA game was Rio Grande’s Clarence “Bevo” Francis, who had 113 against Hillsdale in 1954. Against Crossroads, Taylor was 35 of 70 overall from the field. He made 15 of 17 foul shots.

Taylor scored 71 points in the Pioneers’ 144-99 victory Friday in the season opener against Finlandia.

November 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Devyn Marble scored 22 of his season-high 27 points in the first half as Iowa thumped Abilene Christian 103-41 on Sunday. Marble scored 15 of the Hawkeyes’ first 17 points. Freshman Peter Jok added 15 points for Iowa (4-0). LaDarrien Williams scored 12 points to lead Abilene Christian (0-4).

Marble put on a show in the opening minutes, making six of his first seven shots, including two 3-pointers and a pair of nifty drives. The Hawkeyes shot 62 percent from the floor to eclipse the 100-point mark for the second straight game. Iowa made 9 of 21 3-pointers. Abilene Christian committed 19 turnovers and shot just 26 percent.

Iowa opened the second half on a 32-4 run after leading 46-22 at halftime. Zach McCabe and Gabe Olaseni each scored 10 points for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa universities criticized for lottery promotion

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The appropriateness of an Iowa lottery scratch game with ties to college football in the state is being questioned. The Des Moines Register reports some lawmakers and professors question whether state universities should help promote gambling. The debate is focused on the “Tail Gator” game that offers a chance to win packages to attend football games at Iowa, Iowa State and Northern Iowa.

Iowa psychology professor Elizabeth Altmaier says she thinks it’s wrong for the universities to be associated with any aspect of gambling. The NCAA recommends that schools avoid deals like this in its best practices guidance but it doesn’t strictly prohibit them.

Public documents show Iowa will get $75,000 this season for the lottery promotion. Iowa State will get $60,000 and Northern Iowa will receive $20,000.

Saint Mary’s defeats Drake 67-63, improves to 4-0


November 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MORAGA, Calif. (AP) – Beau Levesque scored 16 points and Brad Waldow added 15 with 13 rebounds as Saint Mary’s defeated Drake 67-63 Saturday night. The Gaels (4-0) opened the game on a 16-6 run and led by as much as 16 early in the second half before Drake surged back to pull within two with 6:42 remaining. Stephen Holt hit a 3-pointer and Levesque made a layup to put Saint Mary’s ahead by five.

Another layup from Levesque increased the lead to six, and Waldow blocked Karl Madison’s ensuing layup attempt with 1:48 remaining. Richard Carter sank a 3-pointer to make the score 63-60, but Levesque and Jordan Giusti each hit two late free throws to hold off the Bulldogs (2-1). Carter hit a last-second three to finish with 18 points and Daddy Ugbede added 11.

Waldow had a career-high five blocks and was one of four Gaels to score in double figures.

No. 22 Oklahoma routs Iowa State 48-10


November 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Bob Stoops matched Barry Switzer’s record for most coaching victories at Oklahoma when the 22nd-ranked Sooners cruised to a 48-10 victory over Iowa State on Saturday. Trevor Knight led the way as Stoops recorded win No. 157 with Oklahoma (8-2, 5-2 Big 12), which closed the game with 45 unanswered points over the final three quarters. The backup quarterback was 8-of-14 passing for 61 yards and rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown.

Iowa State (1-9, 0-7) held Oklahoma scoreless in the first quarter and led 10-3 before Jalen Saunders returned a punt 91 yards for a touchdown right before halftime. Damien Williams added 10 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns for the Sooners.

Knight provided an instant spark after replacing injured starter Blake Bell in the opening minutes of the second quarter. Bell was 2 of 5 for 10 yards.

Northern Iowa holds off Missouri State 17-10


November 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — David Johnson was the workhorse for Northern Iowa, carrying the ball 37 times and scoring twice in a victory over Missouri State 17-10 on Saturday. Johnson gained 167 of the Panthers’ 212 yards rushing, and had TD runs of 1 and 21 yards in the close contest. Northern Iowa (6-5, 2-5 Missouri Valley Conference) ended the Bears (5-7, 5-3) four-game win streak. Missouri State has not defeated Northern Iowa since 2005.

Five turnovers — three fumbles and two interceptions — hurt Missouri State, which had jumped ahead 3-0 on an Austin Witmer 37-yard-field goal on the opening drive. Successive possessions ended with six punts, three fumbles, an interception and two missed field goals but the Bears were still only down 17-10 after scoring on a Ryan Heaston 8-yard run with 4:57 to play.

After forcing a Panthers punt, however, Missouri State’s Ashton Glaser was intercepted a second time.
