Sports

January 15th, 2014 by Jim Field

ATLANTA, Ga. – Iowa State women’s basketball senior Hallie Christofferson has been selected as one of 31 semifinalists for the Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup, Athletes for a Better World announced Tuesday.

Christofferson holds a 3.43 grade point average while majoring in graphic design. She was a member of the Big 12 honor roll and was named an ISU Scholar-Athlete in 2013.

Christofferson has participated in various community service projects during her time at Iowa State. The senior volunteered with the St. Jude’s Walk the past three years, the I-35 Program and assisted with Jr. Cyclone clinics among other activities.

On the court, Christofferson has established herself as one of the best players in the country. She was named an honorable mention All-American by the AP and WBCA last season. Her performance also did not go unnoticed by league coaches as she was one of just four student-athletes in the Big 12 to be named a unanimous selection to the All-Big 12 First-Team. This season, the senior is averaging 21.0 points per contest, which ranks second in the Big 12, and 7.9 rebounds. She has also been tabbed to numerous preseason watch lists.

The organization also announced its five finalists in addition to the 31 semifinalists. The 36 student-athletes, 31 semifinalists and five finalists, covered all NCAA sponsored sports and crossed all divisions. Christofferson was one of just five selections from collegiate women’s basketball.

The award identifies collegiate and professional athletes that best display character, teamwork and citizenship. The award establishes the recipients as athletes of excellence both on and off the field and role models both as performers and persons.

To be eligible for the award a student-athlete must demonstrate positive relationships with fellow athletes and coaches in addition to personal successes on the court and in the classroom. The student-athlete must also be active in the community and campus.

Sports

January 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Desmar Jackson hit a go-ahead jumper with six seconds left and blocked the ensuing layup attempt to complete Southern Illinois’ 68-66 come-from-behind victory over Northern Iowa Tuesday night. Northern Iowa (9-8, 3-2 Missouri Valley Conference) used a 28-7 run to race out to a 36-19 lead in the first half.

The Salukis (6-12, 2-3) stormed back from a late 64-52 deficit as Sean O’Brien hit a 3-pointer and Jackson converted a three-point play to tie the game at 66 with 1:10 left. After a Davante Drinkard block, Jackson sank a jumper and blocked Deon Mitchell in the final seconds. Chip Rank’s putback couldn’t find the net either.

Southern Illinois shot 46.2 percent, closing the game on a 16-2 surge. Jackson finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds, O’Brien had 15 points and Anthony Beane added 14. The Panthers were led by Seth Tuttle with 24 points and nine rebounds.

Sports

January 14th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Naadir Tharpe scored a career-high 23 points, freshman Andrew Wiggins had 17 points and 19 rebounds and Number 15 Kansas beat 8th ranked Iowa State 77-70 on Monday night. The Jayhawks (12-4, 3-0) handed the Cyclones their second consecutive loss after a 14-0 start. Kansas opened the second half with a 16-5 run and led the rest of the way.

Joel Embiid finished with 16 points and five blocks for the Jayhawks, who out-rebounded Iowa State 53-36 in perhaps their most impressive win of the season. DeAndre Kane, who sprained an ankle in the loss to Oklahoma on Saturday, had 21 points for Iowa State (14-2, 2-2), which lost for the 17th time in 18 games against Kansas.
