November 26th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — Jack Taylor’s encore for his record-setting performance was OK, just nowhere near his previous game. Taylor scored 21 points, but Grinnell College lost 131-116 to William Penn on Sunday night. He was 6 for 21 from the field, making 3 of 13 attempts from 3-point range, in the first loss of the season for the Pioneers (3-1).

Everyone from LeBron James to Carmelo Anthony was talking about Taylor after he scored 138 points on Tuesday night, shattering the NCAA record of 113 set by Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis against Hillsdale in 1954. He was 52 of 108 from the floor in the memorable performance, including 27 for 71 from 3-point range.

William Penn (12-0) was 50 of 80 from the floor and had seven players score in double figures.

Manning’s 2 TDs leads Broncos past Chiefs, 17-9


November 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Peyton Manning threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns, and the Denver Broncos rallied to beat the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 17-9 on Sunday for their sixth straight win. Manning hit tight end Jacob Tamme late in the first half and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the third quarter, and that was more than enough to overcome three field goals by the Chiefs’ Ryan Succop as Kansas City lost its eighth straight game.

Knowshon Moreno added 85 yards rushing for the AFC West-leading Broncos (8-3). Moreno got the start in place of Willis McGahee, who went on injured reserve this week with a knee injury.
Jamaal Charles ran for 107 yards for the Chiefs (1-10), who failed again to punch the ball into the end zone. They still haven’t scored a touchdown since the first quarter against Pittsburgh on Nov. 12, a span of more than 11 quarters and 173 minutes of game time.

After trailing 45-36 at halftime, the Sun Devils cut it to 59-53 on Carson’s three-point play with 12:21 to play. The Bluejays answered with the next eight points as the Sun Devils never came closer than six the rest of the game.

UNLV (3-1) began to pull away late in the second half. After Will Clyburn’s tip-in at 7:24 cut Iowa State’s deficit to 57-54, the Rebels closed the game with a 25-16 run.

Anthony Marshall added 16 points for the Rebels, and Mike Moser had 15 points and 12 rebounds.

November 24th, 2012 by Chris Parks

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) – Chris Crawford and Joe Jackson, two of Memphis’ better players who had been struggling, scored 18 and 15 points, respectively, and the 19th-ranked Tigers avoided losing all three games in the Battle 4 Atlantis, beating Northern Iowa 52-47 on Saturday.

Memphis (3-2) was one of four ranked team in the regular-season tournament but it was the only one not to reach the semifinals, and things didn’t look so great late in the first half against the Panthers, who led 26-12 with 4:34 to play.

Crawford, who had 12 rebounds, hit a 3-pointer to start a 10-0 run that closed the half and Jackson ended the spurt with another 3 to make it 26-22.

Deon Mitchell led the Panthers (3-3) with 18 points and five assists.
