No. 24 Iowa State rolls past Drake 87-45

Sports

November 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hallie Christofferson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Nicole Blaskowsky and Anna Prins added 17 points each as No. 24 Iowa State defeated Drake 87-45 on Tuesday night. Nikki Moody had 15 points and 10 assists for the Cyclones (5-0). Cara Lutes scored 19 points for the Bulldogs (1-4), who shot 16.1 percent (5 of 31) in the first half and went 11:40 without a field goal as Iowa State built a 51-13 halftime lead.

It was Iowa State’s eighth win in the last nine games between the schools and tied the all-time series at 26 victories each. The winning margin of 42 points was bettered only by the 95-29 win (66 points) by the Cyclones in 1975. Iowa State played its second game without star forward Chelsea Poppens, who suffered a concussion against Loyola Marymount on Nov. 23. She has plenty of time to rest before the team’s next game against Iowa on Dec. 6th.

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Erick Green scored 24 points and Robert Brown had 18 Tuesday night, leading Virginia Tech to a 95-79 victory against Iowa in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Hokies (6-0) broke away with a 19-1 run spanning the halves, then withstood a run that pulled the Hawkeyes to within 57-54 with 12 minutes left. Virginia Tech then went on a 12-4 burst to rebuild the margin. The victory, under first-year coach James Johnson, gave the Hokies their first 6-0 start since 1982-83.

Aaron White had 21 points to lead the Hawkeyes (5-2) and Roy Devyn Marble added 18. Virginia Tech tried to take command to start the second half as Green scored the first nine points, extending the Hokies’ lead to 55-38 — their largest to that point in what had been a very close game.

Chiefs’ Charles causes stir seeking signature

Sports

November 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has caused a stir after asking for Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s autograph following Sunday’s game in Kansas City. Local television station KCTV aired footage of Charles waiting for Manning’s signature after the Chiefs’ 17-9 loss. Charles told the TV station he was getting the autograph for his mom. The story was picked up by several national media outlets, some of whom argued it was in poor taste to ask for an opponent’s autograph after a loss, even though it’s common for professional athletes in most sports to exchange jerseys and autographs.

Texans running back Arian Foster tweeted that he got Charles’ autograph at the 2010 Pro Bowl, and that he exchanges with players “damn near every game.” Charles tweeted Tuesday: “Thank for the support and relax on the P Manning story, just two warriors showing each other respect.”

Big 12 to send 9 teams to postseason

Sports

November 27th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The health of the Big 12 has been a topic of debate since Nebraska and Colorado kicked off a four-team exodus a few years back. Judging by the results in 2012, the league is actually stronger than ever, if smaller. Nine of the Big 12’s 10 teams, including newcomers West Virginia and TCU, are already bowl eligible.

The league’s 90 percent success rate is by far the best in the country — and that’s with an extra league game for each school and a week left to play.

At 1-10, Chiefs taking approach that they’re 10-1

Sports

November 27th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It’s Week 12 and the Kansas City Chiefs already have nothing to lose. They’ve dropped eight straight games to be officially eliminated from playoff contention. They lead the NFL in turnovers, haven’t scored a touchdown in more than 11 quarters and still have just one lonely win during one of the worst seasons in franchise history. Time to throw caution to the wind, right? Not exactly.

Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel on Monday defended his decision to keep kicking field goals on fourth-and-short situations in a 17-9 loss to the Broncos over the weekend. Crennel said it was more important to put points on the board than risk getting nothing.

Sports

November 26th, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa- Iowa State head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced today that Daniel Edozie, a 6-8, 235-pound power forward from Tyler Junior College (Texas), has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Iowa State for the 2013-14 season. Edozie is a sophomore at TJC and will have two years of eligibility at Iowa State.

Edozie joins a group of four Cyclones who have already signed letters of intent to play basketball at Iowa State next season in Monte Morris (6-1, 195, Fr., Flint, Mich.), Matt Thomas (6-4, 190, Fr., Onalaska, Wis.), Richard Amardi (6-9, 225, Sr., Scarborough, Ontario) and Dustin Hogue (6-6, 205, Jr., Yonkers, N.Y.).

“We are very happy to have Daniel join our program,” Hoiberg said. “He brings toughness and strength to our program and he is a versatile defender.”

Edozie, who is from Compton, Calif., averaged 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds as a freshman at Tyler in 2011-12. The strong forward is averaging 10.1 points and 8.1 rebounds in 10 games for Tyler this season. He had 12 boards in Tyler’s last game vs. Houston Community College.

Iowa State’s 2013-14 recruiting class is considered one of the best in the nation, including a spot at No. 24 in the ESPN rankings.
