December 5th, 2014 by Jim Field

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Mike Riley has a five-year contract at Nebraska paying him $2.7 million a year.

The terms were announced Friday before Riley was introduced at a news conference at Memorial Stadium. Nebraska hired the 61-year-old Riley away from Oregon State on Thursday.

Riley will receive automatic $100,000 increases in each of the five years of a contract that runs through Feb. 28, 2020. Riley had been the lowest-paid coach in the Pac-12, making a reported $1.5 million this year.

Former Nebraska coach Bo Pelini was paid $3.1 million this year.

Riley was 93-80, with wins in six of eight bowl games during two stints totaling 14 years at Oregon State. The Beavers were 5-7 this season.

Dustin Hogue scored 14 for the Cyclones (5-1), who led by as many as 23 points in extending their non-conference home winning streak to 24 games.

Iowa State’s fast-break offense overwhelmed the Razorbacks (6-1) from the opening tip. The Cyclones took their first double-digit lead less than six minutes in and led 52-32 at the break. Bobby Portis scored 19 to lead the Razorbacks (6-1), who haven’t won a road game as a ranked team since 1999.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Sara Hammond scored a season-high 19 points, Myisha Hines Allen added 16 and No. 7 Louisville ran away quickly from No. 22 Iowa for an 86-52 rout Thursday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Seeking a good tuneup before Sunday’s Bluegrass battle against No. 13 Kentucky, the Cardinals (8-0) never trailed in racing to an impressive first win over a ranked team this season. Hammond’s 9-of-13 shooting led Louisville’s 35-of-66 performance from the field, its fifth 50-percent shooting effort this season; the Cardinals held the Hawkeyes (6-2) to 30 percent.

Freshman Mariya Moore had 12 points and six assists, and senior guard Bria Smith added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinals, who dominated the Hawkeyes 58-32 in the paint along with outrebounding them 50-38.

Bethany Doolittle scored 12 points for Iowa, which fell to 0-2 against Louisville, with both meetings coming this year.

Cardinals GM not opposed to improving Lackey deal

Sports

December 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have John Lackey at a bargain price next season, but may be willing to sweeten the deal. General manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday he’d meet with the agent for the 36-year-old right-hander at the winter meetings next week. “I wouldn’t rule anything out there,” Mozeliak said.

Lackey’s contract calls for a $500,000 salary next season, the major league minimum, because he missed the 2012 season while recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery. The right-hander just completed an $82.5 million, five-year contract he signed with Boston. Lackey was traded from the Red Sox to St. Louis last July. He went a combined 14-10 with a 3.83 ERA and was 1-0 in two postseason starts for the NL Central champion Cardinals.

Mozeliak also said former Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter would not return to the front office after serving one season after his retirement. “I think in Carp’s case, he wasn’t ready to truly commit to the job,” Mozeliak said. “For all of you who know Chris Carpenter, it’s all-in or he prefers to be all-out.”
