Ferentz reaffirms commitment to Iowa

Sports

December 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has reaffirmed his commitment to the Hawkeyes, saying he fully intends to coach in Iowa City in 2012 and “well beyond.” Ferentz released a statement late Tuesday night in response to another round of speculation about his future. Ferentz’s deal with Iowa runs through the 2020 season and pays him just under $4 million a year. Ferentz says he wants to emphasize that he’s very happy with the Hawkeyes, adding that he’s got a great staff and student-athletes, and strong support from university president Sally Mason and athletic director Gary Barta. Ferentz has been the head coach at Iowa since 1999 and is the longest-tenured coach in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes (7-5) will face No. 19 Oklahoma in the Insight Bowl on Dec. 30.

December 20th, 2011 by Jim Field

The Western Iowa Conference is in the mood to expand.   Superintendents and activities directors from the eight schools currently in the conference met last Friday and decided to send letters inviting Logan-Magnolia and IKM-Manning to join the conference in the fall of 2013.  The invitations must be accepted by February first.  IKM-Manning and Logan-Magnolia are currently members of the 17 school Western Valley Conference.  Conference leaders have cited geography, enrollment and a history of succesful programs as reasons to consider IKM-Manning and Logan-Magnolia for the conference.  The invitations are expected to be sent before the end of the month. The WIC currently includes Audubon, A-H-S-T, Griswold, Tri-Center, Riverside, Underwood, Missouri Valley and Treynor.

December 20th, 2011 by Jim Field

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Sophomore Doug McDermott scored a career-high 35 points and No. 23 Creighton routed Tulsa 83-64 on Monday night.

The 6-foot-7 McDermott had 19 points in the first half on a variety of low-post bank shots as Tulsa elected not to double-team the nation’s second-leading scorer.

McDermott finished 16 of 23 from the field and made both of his 3-point attempts.

The Bluejays (9-1) trailed 20-19 but went on an 8-0 run spurred by three baskets by Antoine Young, who finished with 14 points. McDermott scored the Bluejays’ final 11 points of the half as Creighton took a 42-34 lead.

Center Gregory Echenique, who played just 2 minutes in the first half, scored nine points in the opening 2:52 of the second as Creighton took a 51-34 lead. Tulsa never came closer than 12 points again.

Jordan Clarkson scored 14 points and Tim Peete added 12 for Tulsa (5-7), which lost for the seventh time in nine games.

Iowa Defeats Central Arkansas 105-64

Sports

December 20th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — In what’s often been a trying stretch for Iowa, the Hawkeyes finally got to clear out the bench and savor an easy victory. Devyn Marble had 19 points and six assists, freshman Aaron White added 17 points and Iowa pounded Central Arkansas 105-64 on Monday night. Melsahn Basabe had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Hawkeyes (7-5), who cracked the 100-point barrier for just the second time under coach Fran McCaffery.

Iowa opened the game with a 24-5 run and led by 13 at halftime despite five 3-pointers from Central Arkansas’s Dewan Clayborn. The Hawkeyes pushed their lead to 75-46 with 12 minutes remaining and cruised to back-to-back victories for the first time in a month. Clayborn had 18 points to lead the Bears (5-5), who’ve dropped two in a row after winning five straight. Central Arkansas never led, but it briefly scared the Hawkeyes with a pair of runs late in the first half. This was the fourth win by 20 points or more this season for Iowa, which has shown signs of progress since a disheartening 0-2 road trip against rivals Northern Iowa and Iowa State.
