UCLA LB Anthony Barr wins Lott IMPACT Trophy

Sports

December 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr has won the Lott IMPACT Trophy as the collegiate defensive player having the biggest influence on his team. The other finalists were Chris Borland of Wisconsin, Devon Kennard of Southern California and James Morris of Iowa.

Barr, the first Bruin to win the 10th annual award, led UCLA with 20 tackles for losses. He also had 10 sacks, five forced fumbles, four fumbles recoveries and 62 total tackles. The award is named for Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott and goes to a player with strong academic work, community involvement and team leadership. UCLA will receive $25,000 for its general scholarship fund.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott was the speaker at Sunday night’s banquet at the Pacific Club in Newport Beach. Manti Te’o of Notre Dame won last year.

Chiefs thump Redskins 45-10 to break 3-game skid

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Kansas City scored early and often Sunday, breaking a three-game losing streak with a 45-10 embarrassment of the Washington Redskins. The Chiefs improved to 10-3 by dominating an opponent that offered little resistance. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns.

The score was 17-0 after the first quarter and 38-10 at halftime. Quintin Demps immediately answered the lone Redskins touchdown with a 95-yard kickoff return, part of a stunning tally of 321 return yards by Kansas City in the first half alone. The Redskins fell to 3-10, increasing speculation that coach Mike Shanahan will be gone at the end of the season.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Melvin Ejim scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half and overtime, and 17th-ranked Iowa State rallied from 18 points down to beat Northern Iowa 91-82 on Saturday for its best start in 10 years. Georges Niang added a career-high 22 points for the Cyclones (7-0), who also snapped a 3-game losing streak against the rival Panthers (3-5).

Iowa State went on a 23-2 run midway through the second half to erase a 49-31 deficit. But Northern Iowa’s Seth Tuttle banked in a 3 with 1.3 seconds left to force OT. Ejim responded with back-to-back 3s to put the Cyclones ahead 82-75 with 1:18 left.

Nate Buss had 23 points and Wes Washpun scored 18 with eight assists for Northern Iowa.

Chiefs’ Charles continues to break records

Sports

December 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles is about as difficult to catch in the locker room as he is in the open field, where he routinely makes defenders look foolish with his swiveling hips and world-class speed. But if you catch him for a moment, you’ll quickly learn why he’s among the best in the NFL: The pursuit of perfection drives him every day.

Charles enters the weekend third in the NFL and tops in the AFC with 1,011 yards rushing, and his 4.6 yards per carry is tied for seventh among those with at least 100 attempts. He also has nine TDs rushing, one behind league leader Adrian Peterson of the Vikings.
