No. 17 Iowa State beats No. 23 Iowa 85-82

December 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Georges Niang scored 24 points, including the go-ahead basket with 18.8 seconds left, and 17th-ranked Iowa State rallied to beat Number 23 Iowa 85-82 on Friday night. Dustin Hogue had 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Cyclones (8-0), who prevailed in the first meeting between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes as ranked teams in 26 years.

Niang gave Iowa State an 83-82 lead on a reverse layup – and Iowa’s Mike Gesell followed by missing two free throws. Hogue then buried two foul shots, and Zach McCabe’s attempt for a tying 3 fell short for Iowa (10-2).

Aaron White had 25 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for the Hawkeyes, who led by as much as 10 late in the first half.

Chiefs sign WR Hall, release DT Powe

Sports

December 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Wide receiver Chad Hall and defensive tackle Jerrell Powe are probably getting used to signing and getting released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Hall was signed by the Chiefs again on Friday after recently being let go. He was claimed off waivers from San Francisco on Sept. 1 and played in eight games, catching one pass for nine yards, before he was released.

Powe, the Chiefs’ sixth-round pick in the 2011 draft, was released to make room for Hall. Powe also was released before the start of this season, and then rejoined the team on Dec. 3. He’s played in only 10 games and made six tackles in roughly two seasons in the league.

Second Shotgun Deer Season Begins Saturday in IA

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

December 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Iowa’s first shotgun deer season closed Wednesday and officials with the Department of Natural Resources say the preliminary numbers indicate that license sales and harvest are both down from previous years. Sales of licenses declined 7 percent from 2012 and the reported harvest is 18 percent lower. The decrease reflects decreased deer numbers across the state as well as fewer licenses being issued, continuing the downward trend in harvest since its peak in 2006. The bitterly cold weather was likely a factor as well.

Iowa’s second shotgun season begins Saturday. Historically a lower kill during the first season often results in more deer being taken during the second. Hunters get an additional weekend of hunting during the second season and the weather forecast looks more favorable. Party hunting is a common practice during the shotgun season and hunters are reminded to be careful when hunting in a group.

Always make sure that you are shooting in a safe direction before pulling the trigger. Hunters during the second season typically take a higher percentage of does than first season hunters do. However, if hunters are seeing fewer deer where they hunt they may want to refrain from harvesting extra does. Hunters should check with landowners to see if deer numbers are at an acceptable level and tailor their harvest accordingly.

To avoid waiting in line hunters should consider buying a license today. Current sales for the second season are nearly 30,000 below last year but a large proportion of hunters wait until the last minute to buy a license. About 25,000 licenses will be purchased between Thursday and Saturday morning. Hunters are reminded to report their harvest within 24 hours of recovering their deer. The DNR says that information is an important part of the data needed to manage Iowa’s deer herd.

NASCAR taps Small to run Iowa Speedway

Sports

December 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – NASCAR has selected Jimmy Small the new president of the Iowa Speedway. The appointment of the 28-year-old Small, a senior marketing manager for NASCAR, was announced Thursday at a press conference in Des Moines detailing NASCAR’s purchase of the track last month.   NASCAR bought the seven-year old track from Featherlite Inc., founder Conrad Clement and his family, who owned it for two years. NASCAR will be the $70-million Speedway’s third owner since it opened in 2006.

The Iowa Speedway is scheduled to host an IndyCar race and two Nationwide events, though it’ll have just one NASCAR trucks race after hosting a pair in recent years.  NASCAR has been adamant that it has no plans to award a Sprint Cup Series races to Iowa in the near future.
