Iowa State stays at 17 after beating Iowa, Niang, player of the week

Sports

December 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Iowa State remained ranked 17th in the A-P basketball poll after their 85-82 come-from-behind win over Iowa Friday, while the Hawkeyes fell from 23 to 25. The Cyclones have a week off to enjoy the big win before they get back to business in Hawaii where they will play George Mason Sunday. Cyclone coach Fred Hoiberg said the comebacks are exciting — but he’d rather see the team take the lead and hold it. Hoiberg says they have come back four times from double-digit deficits and he told the team he’d like to the quit making a habit of that and see them get some double-digit leads.

“We’ve got three huge games coming up in Hawaii, come back for one more, and then go into conference play,” Hoiberg said. The come-from-behind win moved I-S-U to 8-0 on the season. “We’re right where we want to be right now as far as the record is concerned, but we still have some work to do,” Hoiberg said. “That’s the positive about this team, is that there is still room to grow, we can still get better. And that’s the thing I am excited about.” Cyclone sophomore forward Georges Niang was name the Big 12 player of the week for his performance against Iowa.

Niang had a career high 24 points, including the winning layup with 18 seconds to go, and also had five assists, two steals and a blocked shot. Teammate Melvin Ejim talked about Niang’s ability after the Iowa game. “You know Georges is just a smart, smart player, he just has super control over his body and knows how to create space. And that’s one of the talents he has over any person — whether you are seven foot or you are very small — he can make that space and get his shot up all the time,” Ejim said. “And if you take that away, he can step out and take a shot. He is just an offensive nightmare.”

Ejim said it was not surprising to see Niang play so well against a good Hawkeye team. “Day in and day out he is coming in, he’s working hard, he’s playing well for us… Georges is a tough player to guard for anybody,” Ejim said. Niang is the fourth Cyclone to earn player of the week honors, joining Ejim, Dustin Hogue and Naz Long. DeAndre Kane has twice been named the league’s newcomer of the week.

Cardinals sign veteran 2B Mark Ellis

Sports

December 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have signed free-agent second baseman Mark Ellis. The Cardinals announced the one-year deal with the 36-year-old veteran on Monday. Terms were not disclosed. Ellis is a lifetime .265 hitter for three teams. He hit .270 with six home runs and 48 RBIs for the Dodgers last season, and is considered a strong defensive second baseman.

Rookie Kolten Wong is expected to get playing time at second base in 2014, but Ellis will provide a right-handed hitting option. Matt Carpenter, who played second base last season, is moving to third base following the trade of David Freese to the Angels.

Drake moves on with new coach Fox

Sports

December 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Drake introduced Rick Fox as its 26th head football coach on Monday in place of Chris Creighton, who last week accepted the Eastern Michigan job. Fox spent the past six seasons on Creighton’s staff as the offensive line and special teams coach. He also served as Creighton’s assistant head coach for the past three years.

Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield-Clubb says the Bulldogs could have scoured the country and not have found a better fit than Fox. Drake went 44-22 under Creighton, including two titles in the FCS-affiliated Pioneer Football League.

Iowa women prepare for Drake

Sports

December 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa women had a six-game winning streak snapped last week with the 83-70 loss at Iowa State. Coach Lisa Bluder says dealing with the loss is compounded by an extended break. “Ten days to sit on a loss is awful and to go through finals week on a losing note is really hard,” Bluder says. The Hawkeyes face another in-state rival this coming weekend. Drake and Iowa tipoff at 4pm on Saturday in Iowa City. The Hawkeyes are 10-2. The Bulldogs are 4-4.

“We need to come back and play our best against Drake,” Bluder says. Before the Iowa game, Drake will host SIU-Edwardsville in a noon tip-off tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Knapp Center in Des Moines. The Bulldogs haven’t played since December 5, when they beat Idaho State 78-59. The Iowa State women, now 9-0, are off until December 28-29 when they host the Cyclone Challenge. The Northern Iowa women are 3-7 and travel to DeKalb to play Northern Illinois on Saturday.
