Penn State wrestlers rally for win

Sports

January 23rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — On the day former football coach Joe Paterno died, Penn State’s third-ranked wrestlers honored his memory in a way he would have approved — by winning. The No. 3 Nittany Lions rallied from a 12-0 deficit after three weights to win the final seven bouts and hand the No. 2 Hawkeyes a 22-13 defeat. Before the match started, an image of a smiling Paterno, arms crossed, and the words Joseph Vincent Paterno 1926-2012, appeared on scoreboards at either end of the arena. A moment of silence was followed by a 30-minute standing ovation in honor of the man also known as Joe Pa. Once the match began, Iowa reeled off three straight wins, two decisions sandwiched around a pin. But Penn State’s top-ranked 149-pounder, Frank Molinaro, brought the momentum the Nittany Lions’ way with a 10-5 win that started a streak of seven consecutive wins.

January 23rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Seth Tuttle scored 13 points as Northern Iowa completed a season sweep of Drake with a 66-52 victory Sunday night. Jake Koch added 10 points for the Panthers (14-7, 4-5 Missouri Valley), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Marc Sonnen hit one 3-pointer among his eight points, marking the 15th consecutive game in which he has scored from long range. Kurt Alexander scored 21 points to lead the Bulldogs (12-8, 5-4), whose season-best four-game winning streak ended. Drake failed to avenge an 83-68 loss to Northern Iowa on Jan. 7. The game turned late in the first half. With the Panthers trailing 19-17, Johnny Moran hit a 3-pointer with 9:27 left that started a 17-4 run and gave Northern Iowa a 34-23 edge at halftime. The lead topped out at 53-28 on a three-point play by Matt Morrison with 12:59 to go. Drake never got closer than 12 after that.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Alex Bentley scored 21 points and No. 22 Penn State beat Iowa 68-52 on Sunday, hours after longtime Nittany Lions football coach Joe Paterno died of cancer. There was a pregame moment of silence for Paterno, the winningest coach in college football. The Lady Lions also sported black bands on their uniforms as a tribute.

Down 48-50 with 6:32 remaining, Penn State (15-4, 5-2 Big Ten) closed with a 20-2 run. Ariel Edwards added 17 points and 11 rebounds for Penn State, which shot 24 of 71 (34 percent) and 1 of 7 (14 percent) from 3-point range. Kamille Whalin led Iowa (11-9, 3-4) with a season-high 21 points. The Hawkeyes committed 15 turnovers and were outrebounded 53-34. The Lady Lions, who entered Sunday ranked 15th in the nation in field goal percentage, started off  sluggish. They shot 12 of 37 (32 percent) in the first half and trailed 32-31 at the break.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Hallie Christofferson had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Iowa State beat No. 17 Texas Tech 66-49 on Sunday to end the longest losing streak in coach Bill Fennelly’s 17 seasons. Leading 26-23 at halftime, Iowa State (10-7, 1-5 Big 12) missed its first seven shots in the second half, then ran off 12 straight points to start a 17-3 run that put the Cyclones in control and ended their five-game losing streak.  Texas Tech (14-4, 2-4) missed 12 of its first 13 shots in the half and never recovered, falling behind by as many as 20. points The Lady Raiders have lost four straight after a 14-0 start. Lauren Mansfield added 12 points, while Chelsea Poppens had 10 points and 15 rebounds for the Cyclones, whose 0-5 start in the Big 12 had been the program’s worst under Fennelly.  Monique Smalls’ 13 points led Texas Tech, which shot just 28 percent.

Iowa’s Celebrity Hunting Program Criticized

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

January 22nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Some question whether Iowa needs to continue giving celebrities easy access to deer hunting in the state, but it appears unlikely that the promotional program will be scrapped. The state program gives 75 celebrities, such as rocker Ted Nugent and former professional athlete Bo Jackson, an opportunity to buy a special out-of-state deer hunting permit each year. Other non-residents might wait years to buy a similar permit. The celebrity program began in 1998 to help promote the state as a top hunting destination. Iowa Bowhunters Association President Randy Taylor tells the Des Moines Register that he’s not sure the state really needs the promotion now because deer hunters nationwide already consider Iowa a top spot to bag a trophy deer.
