Iowa’s Bob Feller Museum fading financially

Sports

February 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

VAN METER, Iowa (AP) – The Bob Feller Museum is scheduled to reopen on April 5, but financial troubles are threatening its survival in his central Iowa hometown of Van Meter. The lack of money forced museum board members to close it on Jan. 3. It opened in 1995 to honor the Hall of Fame pitcher but has faltered since his death on Dec. 15, 2010.

Museum board member Bob DiBiasio told The Des Moines Register that Feller “was the engine that powered that museum.” The museum is working with the city of Van Meter and the Cleveland Indians to develop options.

ISU’s Christofferson, Johnson Earn Big 12 Weekly Honors

Sports

February 17th, 2014 by Jim Field

IRVING, Texas – Hallie Christofferson and Seanna Johnson picked up the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Co-Freshman of the Week honors, the league announced Monday. This was the fourth honor for Johnson and the second for Christofferson this season.

Christofferson tallied 29 points, eight rebounds and no turnovers leading the Cyclones to a win over Kansas. She shot 42.8 percent from the field, 66 percent from long range and 90 percent from the charity stripe as the game’s top scorer.

Johnson on the other hand, totaled 14 points and eight rebounds in Iowa State’s 72-69 win over Kansas, while shooting 50 percent from the field. The freshman’s 14-point performance was her 12th double-digit scoring game of the season.

Johnson’s honor marks the seventh Freshman of the Week honor for Iowa State this season, as fellow freshman Jadda Buckley earned three weekly honors. The Cyclones have captured a league-best seven Freshman of the Week honors so far this season.

The seven Newcomer of the Week honors also breaks the school record of six, which was set in 1998 when the Cyclones grabbed six Newcomer of the Week honors, with Cyclone greats Stacy Frese and Megan Taylor nabbing six between the two.

Christofferson, Johnson and the rest of the Cyclones will take the court on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to take on No. 6 Baylor in Waco, Texas.

Regents “efficiency” study targets Iowa, ISU, UNI athletics, too

Sports

February 17th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The firm hired by the Board of Regents to review operations at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa to find new “efficiencies” has been directed to examine the university athletic departments, too. I-S-U athletic director Jamie Pollard says he welcomes the process, but he makes it clear cutting the athletic department’s budget won’t save taxpayer dollars.

“We’re self-sufficient, so every dollar that we spend we have to cover through ticket sales, donations, television revenue and anything we can do to save money I’m all ears because in some ways it would make my job easier,” Pollard says. Gary Barta, the athletic director at the University of Iowa, says his department is “100 percent self-sustaining,” as well. “So there’s no tax dollars, no university funds, no student fees,” Barta says. “It’s all generated through the revenue that we are able to bring in and create.”

Iowa’s athletic department paid the university over 10-million dollars ($10 million) this year to cover tuition costs for all Hawkeye student athletes in 24 varsity sports. Iowa State has 18 varsity sports. “I think we run, at least within the athletics department, a very streamlined organization and work extremely hard to try to be as efficient as possible,” Pollard says. Barta says he can’t foresee the future, but the last thing he wants to do is cut a sport. He, like Pollard, says he welcomes the efficiency review the Regents have ordered. “Anytime someone comes in and looks at your operation from a different perspective, it’s very healthy so I’m very comfortable with that,” Barta says.

Pollard and Barta made their comments during a weekend appearance on Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press” program. The University of Northern Iowa uses about four-million dollars from general university operations to finance its athletic department. That’s 44 percent of the total U-N-I athletic department budget, but that’s also the lowest level of tuition and taxpayer support for Panther athletics in more than a decade. The university plans to reduce that even more by increasing student fees and using those extra funds to finance U-N-I athletics. Seventeen varsity sports are currently offered at U-N-I.

No. 23 Purdue nips Iowa 74-73 on Moses free throws

Sports

February 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) – Courtney Moses scored 25 points, including the game-winning free throws with seven seconds left as No. 23 Purdue defeated Iowa 74-73 on Sunday. Moses had the last seven points for the Boilermakers (18-7, 8-5 Big Ten). Her 3-pointer broke a 70-70 tie at the 1:57 mark. After Samantha Logic made two free throws and then the go-ahead bucket for the Hawkeyes (20-7, 8-5) at 38 seconds, Moses knocked down a jumper 8 seconds later.

Logic, who had her third triple-double of the year with 18 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, scored again at 19 seconds but her foul set up Moses’ heroics. Liza Clemons added 11 points for Purdue and Whitney Bays and Dee Williams had 10 each. Bays also had 10 rebounds. Theairra Taylor led Iowa, which had a 44-28 lead at the half, with 19 points, Bethany Doolittle had 15 and Ally Disterhoft 10.
