Iowa State Women top Alcorn State Sunday


December 21st, 2015 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s women’s basketball team (7-3 overall, 0-0 Big 12) defeated Alcorn State (2-7, 0-0 SWAC), 91-41 at Hilton Coliseum on Sunday. Seanna Johnson, Meredith Burkhall, Emily Durr and Bridget Carleton made for a balanced offensive attack, each tying for a game-high 14 points.

The Cyclones broke things open in the second quarter, using a 20-2 run over the final six minutes of the half to take a commanding 43-19 lead into halftime. The ISU offense found its rhythm, assisting on seven of nine made field goals in the quarter without any turnovers. Bridget Carleton and Durr led the way in the scoring column with six points each in the quarter.

Nicole Blaskowsky’s shooting highlighted the third quarter for the Cyclones, as the junior hit three triples and sparked a 12-2 ISU run to end the period. The Iowa State defense forced seven turnovers in the quarter and gave up just four made field goals, as they ground the Lady Braves’ offense to a halt. ISU led 70-35 heading into the fourth.

The Iowa State reserves played the bulk of the fourth quarter and were locked in on the defensive end. They held Alcorn State to 1-of-14 shooting from the field and just six points total. The Cyclones outscored the Braves 21-6 in the quarter to win the game, 91-41. Every Cyclone that was available to play in the game scored.

Iowa State will be back in Hilton Coliseum on Tuesday, Dec. 22 to take on Northern Arizona at 2 p.m. CT. Television coverage for the game can be found on Cyclones.tv.

Chiefs cruise past Ravens 34-14 for 8th straight victory


December 20th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

BALTIMORE (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs capitalized on a variety of miscues by the Baltimore Ravens and extended their winning streak to eight games with a 34-14 victory Sunday. Tyvon Branch returned a fumble 73 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter and Marcus Peters clinched the victory with a 90-yard interception return for a score with 4:36 left.

Kansas City (9-5) also scored touchdowns following a drive-extending penalty by Baltimore and a failed fake punt. With the victory, the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to follow a five-game skid with eight successive wins in the same season. Kansas City also kept itself in the thick of the AFC playoff picture.

Baltimore (4-10) lost its third straight and fell to 2-5 at home. It’s the first time in their 20-year history that the Ravens have lost five home games.

High school wrestler dies after collapsing at a tournament

SPENCER, Iowa (AP) — A Spencer High School wrestler has died after collapsing at a weekend tournament in northwest Iowa. Spencer Hospital spokeswoman Tia Manwarren said Austin Roberts died Saturday night at the hospital. Roberts collapsed earlier during a tournament at his high school in Spencer and was taken to the hospital. It wasn’t immediately clear Sunday why he collapsed.

Roberts wrestled at the 220-pound weight class, and he was ranked sixth in the state in Class 3A. Last year, he placed eighth in the state tournament. The 6-foot-4 Roberts also played on the offensive and defensive line for the Spencer High football team.

School officials planned to offer grief counseling at the high school Sunday. And a youth wrestling tournament that had been scheduled in Spencer on Sunday has been cancelled.
