Drake takes confidence into game at Indiana State

Sports

February 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Drake’s players got Sunday off to recover from their three-overtime win against Wichita State Saturday, but after two days of practice, they’re back at it tonight (Wednesday) on the road at Indiana State. Coach Mark Phelps feels the win over the Shockers was part of the team’s growth. “I sense a maturity and a greater discipline from our team, and a steady hunger. They are certainly excited about the win, but feel is we play the right way, we can win more games,” Phelps says. He says the understanding of how they need to play should help them avoid a letdown after the big win. “I’ve said this all along, we have enough that if we play the right way with great energy and we defend to our best ability, we can beat anybody. At the same time, we’re not talented that if we don’t play that way we can lose any game we play,” Phelps explains. “So I think they have that mindset.” He says getting a win at Indiana State will require their best effort. He says they are the defending tournament champions and it is a challenge to go on the road. “It’s gonna be a battle, and we have to play with great energy and we have to defend, and it’s just gonna be I’m sure, a hard fought and intense game from both teams,” Phelps says. Drake is 13-9 overall and tied for third at 6-5 in the Missouri Valley Conference. Indiana State is 13-9 and 4-7 in the conference. Game time is seven p-m.

20 injured, no deaths in 2011 hunting seasons

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources investigated 20 incidents involving injured hunters in 2011, virtually unchanged from recent years, but there were no hunting-related deaths in 2011, down from a single fatality last year. Megan Wisecup, a DNR recreational safety program supervisor, says most of the hunting incidents happened during shotgun deer season when a hunter focused on a deer and not on what’s beyond their target. As a result, she says people get shot. Several injuries happened without shooting at an animal. Wisecup says in one case a hunter was shot in the foot while reaching into his vehicle to unsnag a loaded gun from several bags he was carrying and the gun discharged. There were also eight reports of hunting incidents that caused property damage.

White, Iowa State rally past Kansas State 72-70

Sports

February 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — If there’s been a knock on Iowa State star Royce White this season, it’s been his shooting stroke. White’s jumper looked pretty sweet on the 8-footer that sent the Cyclones to their second huge win in four days. White hit the game-winning jumper with 1.8 seconds left as Iowa State rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat Kansas State 72-70 on Tuesday night. White finished with 22 points and Chris Allen had 15 for the Cyclones (16-6, 6-3 Big 12), who’ve won four of their last five — including thrilling back-to-back victories over league-leading Kansas and the Wildcats. Iowa State’s Chris Babb tied the game at 70 on a free throw with 49 seconds left. The Cyclones then corralled a loose ball after Babb missed his next one to gain possession with the shot clock off, and White drove to the baseline and floated in the deciding bucket.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Deon Mitchell scored 17 points and keyed a go-ahead rally late in the game as Northern Iowa defeated Southern Illinois 58-49 on Tuesday night. Chip Rank added 13 points, including two 3-pointers, as the Panthers (15-9, 5-7 Missouri Valley) snapped a two-game losing streak. Jeff Early’s 13 points led the Salukis (7-16, 4-8), who have lost five of their last six. Mamadou Seck had 10 points and a game-high eight rebounds. Mitchell’s 3-pointer put Northern Iowa ahead 41-39 with 6:44 left, giving the Panthers their first lead of the second half. That started a spurt in which Mitchell and Johnny Moran combined for the Panthers’ next 14 points, creating a 52-47 edge with 3:38 to go. Northern Iowa endured a scoreless streak of 6:56 in the first half and trailed 22-19 at the break. The Panthers have won seven of the teams’ last eight meetings.

Iowa Coach Says Fixing Defense Still a Priority

Sports

January 31st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Iowa gave up 103 points in its loss to Indiana on Sunday and coach Fran McCaffery says they continue to try and find a way to shore up the defense. “Not happy at all with how we’re playing, we’ve got to get better at the defensive end of the floor. We shuffled the lineup a little bit to see if that would help. I think it helped in some areas, maybe not so much in others, so I think we have a couple of important days of practice coming up,” McCaffery says. McCaffery says you can only do so much work in practice on defense.

He says you can work on all kinds of drills and try different combinations. “But ultimately it comes down to a matter of toughness, and we lack that right now, I don’t mind saying it, we don’t have the toughness that’s necessary to defend in this league,” McCaffery says. Iowa did score 89 points in the game. McCaffery was asked if he’d thought about giving up the fast-paced offense. “No, nothing’s changed my mind. I don’t mind being in a 103-89 game, I just don’t want to have 89,” McCaffery said. Iowa is now 11-11 overall on the season, and 3-6 in the Big Ten conference. Iowa hosts Minnesota on Wednesday.
