Tuttle, Buss lead No. 11 N. Iowa over Loyola Chicago, 58-39

February 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Seth Tuttle and Nate Buss each scored 10 points, and No. 11 Northern Iowa won its 14th straight, beating Loyola 58-39 Wednesday night. The Panthers (25-2, 14-1 Missouri Valley Conference) never trailed and moved within one win of matching the 2009-10 team’s school record streak. They also tied a season low for points allowed while holding Loyola (16-11, 6-9) to its lowest scoring total, and this game was every bit as lopsided as the numbers indicated. Northern Iowa led by 12 at halftime and broke it open after the Ramblers trimmed it to nine early in the second period.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Jameel McKay had career highs of 17 points and 14 rebounds to help No. 14 Iowa State knock off No. 22 Oklahoma State 70-65 on Wednesday night. McKay, a 6-foot-9 forward, created problems on both ends with his leaping ability. He made 13 of 18 free throws, blocked four shots and had nine offensive rebounds.

Dustin Hogue scored 14 points, Monte Morris had 11 points and Georges Niang scored all nine of his points in the second half for the Cyclones (19-6, 9-4 Big 12). Iowa State outrebounded Oklahoma State 44-28 and had 18 offensive boards to snap a four-game road losing streak.

Le’Bryan Nash and Phil Forte each scored 13 points, but they combined to make just 7 of 24 shots for the Cowboys (17-9, 7-7), who lost their second straight after three consecutive wins over ranked teams.

Zahui B. record night as Minnesota upends No. 13 Iowa 93-80

February 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Amanda Zahui B. scored a career-high 39 points and grabbed a conference-record 29 rebounds as Minnesota upset No. 13 Iowa 93-80 on Tuesday night. Zahui B.’s rebounding record eclipsed the former Big Ten single-game mark of 26 set by Jerica Watson of Iowa in 2001.

Minnesota (21-6, 10-5 Big Ten) led 48-42 at halftime. Melissa Dixon opened the second half with three 3-pointers as the Hawkeyes (21-5, 12-3) battled to stay close, pulling to 57-54 with about four minutes gone.

Zahui B. added a jumper and a free throw but Samantha Logic nailed a 3-pointer to close to 60-57 before Minnesota’s Carlie Wagner added a trey followed by a pair of jump shots from Zahui B. and a 67-57 lead with 11:25 to go. Wagner finished with 17 points for Minnesota. Logic led Iowa with 26 points and 13 assists for her 28th career double-double. Logic also grabbed eight rebounds.

Chiefs begin clearing space by releasing WRs Avery, Jenkins

Sports

February 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs released wide receivers Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins on Tuesday as they began to clear roster and salary cap space ahead of what could be a busy offseason. Kansas City is facing the loss of All-Pro linebacker Justin Houston and center Rodney Hudson in free agency. The Chiefs are expected to meet with Houston’s representatives about a long-term deal on Wednesday in Indianapolis, and the possibility remains of using the franchise tag on him.

Either way, the Chiefs could be facing some difficult financial choices if they want to keep Houston or Hudson, or both. Releasing Avery and Jenkins saved the Chiefs nearly $5 million, though it makes targeting a wide receiver in free agency or the draft a priority.
