Wichita State rallies to beat Northern Iowa 71-68

Sports

January 19th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Toure’ Murry scored 24 points, including a layup with 1:21 to play that gave Wichita State the lead for good, in a back-and-forth 71-68 victory Wednesday over Northern Iowa. Murry added a jumper with 12 seconds left for the final margin. Northern Iowa’s Marc Sonnen’s game-tying 3-point attempt in the closing seconds was off the mark. Garrett Stutz added 17 points and Joe Ragland 13 for the Shockers (16-3, 7-1 Missouri Valley). Anthony James led the Panthers (13-7, 3-5) with 16 points, and Seth Tuttle had 15. Northern Iowa led by as many as eight in the second half and by five, 64-59, after a Jake Koch jumper with 4:20 to play. But a Murry jumper, a Carl Hall layup and two Murry free throws put the Shockers up 65-64. Deon Mitchell’s two free throws gave UNI the lead back before Murry’s layup, and Ragland added two big free throws.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Rayvonte Rice hit two free throws to force overtime, then made a fast-break layup to put Drake ahead to stay in a 75-68 victory over Southern Illinois on Wednesday night.

Drake seeking 5th straight win at Southern Illinois tonight

Sports

January 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Drake Bulldogs will be in search of their fourth straight win, tonight, when they visit Southern Illinois in Missouri Valley Conference play. The Bulldogs are 4-3 in the league race and Coach Mark Phelps says they will face a tough challenge against a Saluki team that has gotten healthier and better. Junior Ben Simons was a big factor in Drake’s win streak. He averaged better than 19 and a half points in the three wins and was named the MVC player of the week. Phelps says the Bulldogs have made more of a commitment on the defensive end and it is showing up on the scoreboard. Southern Illinois coach Chris Lowery says Simons and Rayvonte Rice are a difficult combination to guard.

Sports

January 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Robbie Hummel scored 17 points to help Purdue defeat Iowa 75-68 on Tuesday night. Hummel also had 11 rebounds and affected the game in many ways, despite shooting just 5 for 14 from the field. Lewis Jackson scored 14 points, Ryne Smith scored 12, Kelsey Barlow had 11 points and seven rebounds and Terone Johnson added 10 points for the Boilermakers (14-5, 4-2 Big Ten), who bounced back from a 67-62 loss to Wisconsin that ended their 26-game home winning streak. Zach McCabe scored 20 points, Roy Devyn Marble had 18 and Matt Gatens added 12 for the Hawkeyes (11-9, 3-4), who were coming off a 75-59 win over Michigan. The Hawkeyes led by 11 points in the first half, but didn’t shoot well after that. Purdue swept the season series, having won 79-76 in Iowa City on Dec. 28.

DNR reports fewer deer killed

January 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The number of deer killed during the recent hunting season was down about 4 percent from last year. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says in a news release Tuesday that Iowa hunters killed nearly 113,000 deer during the season that ended Jan. 10. That is also down about 21 percent from 2006. Although the numbers of deer taken are down, the DNR says the number of deer licenses issued has remained about the same since 2006. Dale Garner, chief of the DNR’s Wildlife Bureau, says the reduced kill numbers are the result of the reduced deer population. He says officials will review the deer harvest and make proposals to reduce the number of deer killed and stabilize the state’s deer population.
