Iowa Upsets Badgers

Sports

February 24th, 2012 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Senior Matt Gatens scored a career-high 33 points and Iowa beat No. 16 Wisconsin 67-66 on Thursday night for its second straight win over a ranked opponent.

It was the second straight career-high for Gatens, who had 30 points in Iowa’s win over then-No. 18 Indiana on Sunday.

Wisconsin (20-8, 9-6 Big Ten) lost for just the third time in 11 games. The Badgers got within 65-63 on Jordan Taylor’s layup with 4 seconds left, but Gatens made two free throws to cap his brilliant night for the Hawkeyes (15-13, 7-8).

Taylor’s meaningless 3-pointer at the buzzer was the closest the Badgers would get in the second half.

Josh Gasser and Ryan Evans each had 14 points for Wisconsin, which never led and got swept by Iowa in the regular season for the first time since 1994-95.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Anthony James scored 19 points and Northern Iowa beat Bradley 64-55 Wednesday night. Marc Sonnen had 13 points, Johnny Moran scored 12 and Seth Tuttle had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Panthers (18-12, 8-9 Missouri Valley), who avenged a 78-65 loss last month in Peoria, Ill., that was one of Bradley’s two conference wins. Northern Iowa shot 33 percent in the first half and trailed 30-24 at the break, but made 52 percent from the field after halftime to finish the game at 43 percent. Walt Lemon Jr., who had five 3-pointers, scored a game-high 22 points for the Braves (7-23, 2-15). Jake Eastman, with 10 points, was the only other player in double figures for Bradley, which has lost four in a row.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ben Simons returned from a five-game absence to score 14 points, leading Drake to a 78-63 victory over Southern Illinois on Wednesday night. The Bulldogs (16-13, 9-8 Missouri Valley) had lost three of their last five games without Simons, the team’s leading scorer, who was sidelined with mononucleosis. Rayvonte Rice led Drake with 19 points. Mamadou Seck scored 20 points and Jeff Early 18 for the Salukis (8-21, 5-12). Forward Dantiel Daniels, one of the MVC’s top freshmen, left the game midway through the first half with a knee injury and did not return. Drake moved into a tie for third in the MVC standings with Missouri State, which lost to Indiana State on Wednesday. However, the Bears hold the tiebreaker due to their season sweep of the Bulldogs. Southern Illinois, which is locked into the No. 9 seed in next week’s MVC tournament, set a school record for losses in a season.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Scott Christopherson and Melvin Ejim each scored 17 points and Iowa State pulled away for a 72-54 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday night, reaching 20 wins for the first time in eight years. Royce White had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Cyclones (20-8, 10-5 Big 12), who also earned 10 wins in the Big 12 for the first time since 2001. Iowa State struggled at times against the Big 12′s worst team, though. The Cyclones trailed by four at halftime, let the Red Raiders shoot nearly 46 percent and didn’t push their lead into double digits until just over 6 minutes were left. Jaye Crockett had 17 points for the Red Raiders (8-19, 1-14), who remain winless on the road in the Big 12.

Cyclones Grind Out Win Over Missouri In Overtime

Sports

February 22nd, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State struggled from the field and at the line but prevailed in overtime against a gritty Missouri squad Tuesday for a 66-59 victory in Hilton Coliseum. The win moves the Cyclones to 8-7 in the Big 12 Conference, 17-9 overall. Missouri falls to 1-14 in the Big 12 and 11-15 overall.

The Cyclones got a huge three-pointer from Hallie Christofferson with 2:32 to go in overtime and held Missouri without a basket in the extra period until the game’s final second.

Poppens led the Cyclones with 25 points and 16 rebounds in 33 minutes of action for her 13th double-double of the season. Poppens attempted a school-record 24 free throws, connecting on 15 of them. The Cyclones might have put the game out of reach earlier, but were inconsistent at the free-throw line, hitting on 25-39 attempts. Christofferson had 13 points and six rebounds. Christine Flores led Missouri with 16 points. Iowa State trailed for nearly 37 minutes of the game, taking a 56-54 lead on a pair of Chassidy Cole free throws with 45 seconds left in regulation. Missouri’s Sydney Crafton hit a three  with 3.4 seconds left in the second half that forced overtime.

By the extra session the Tigers were without three players who fouled out and ISU built a small cushion to claim a key victory in its pursuit of an NCAA Tournament berth. The win was the Cyclones sixth in their last seven league games.

Missouri, which had won its first league game at Kansas Saturday, was hitting its shots early while Iowa State was not. Over the first nine minutes of the first half the Cyclones hit on just 2-12 (.167) field goal attempts and were 1-for-7 (.143) on its shots beyond the three-point arc.  The Cyclones’ only first-half  lead was 3-2 on a Christofferson three-pointer in the game’s first 90 seconds. Missouri outshot Iowa State in the first half hitting on 6-of-13 three-point attempts.  The Cyclones hit on just  4-of-16 three-point attempts. Iowa State hit on just 7-of30 shots (.233).

The Tigers led by 11, at 31-20 with 45 seconds left in the first half. Anna Prins hit on a three just before halftime to make it 31-23 at the break. With Poppens playing just 10 minutes of the first stanza because of foul trouble, Missouri outscored Iowa State in the paint, 10-6 in the first half.

Iowa State plays at Oklahoma State Saturday at 7 p.m.
