Drake holds off a Northern Iowa rally, 70-67

Sports

February 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Richard Carter scored 19 points to help Drake hold on after nearly blowing a 20-point second-half lead against Northern Iowa on Tuesday night, 70-67. Carter’s 3-pointer put Drake up 52-32 with 13:22 left. After a basket at the 7:49 mark, Drake did not score again until Carter’s two free throws with 59 seconds remaining for a 64-60 lead.

Six Northern Iowa players scored during its 16-0 run, led by Deon Mitchell with five — including a steal and layup with 1:23 left. Northern Iowa got within 65-64 with 26 left and had a chance to tie it at the 12 second mark, but Mitchell missed an open layup. Drake’s Karl Madison made two free throws to seal it.

Trevor Berkeley added 15 points for Drake (14-13, 5-10 Missouri Valley). Seth Tuttle had 20 points in defeat for Northern Iowa (13-14, 7-8) while Mitchell added 16 points and four steals.

Falling Metal Forces Indiana to Postpone Iowa Game

Sports

February 18th, 2014 by Jim Field

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana postponed Tuesday night’s basketball game against No. 15 Iowa after piece of metal fell into the seats at Assembly Hall about six hours before tipoff.

Athletic director Fred Glass said the school made the decision after the metal piece, roughly 8 feet long and 14 inches wide, fell into the lower bowl of the arena and damaged seats in the northwest corner. The game was scheduled for 8:00 p.m. and a makeup date was not announced.

Glass said the school made the decision for the safety of fans and that no decision had been made about whether to play Wednesday night’s women’s game against Michigan.

Assembly Hall opened during the 1971-72 season and holds more than 17,000 fans. A multimillion-dollar renovation plan is in the works.

Iowa’s Bob Feller Museum fading financially

Sports

February 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

VAN METER, Iowa (AP) – The Bob Feller Museum is scheduled to reopen on April 5, but financial troubles are threatening its survival in his central Iowa hometown of Van Meter. The lack of money forced museum board members to close it on Jan. 3. It opened in 1995 to honor the Hall of Fame pitcher but has faltered since his death on Dec. 15, 2010.

Museum board member Bob DiBiasio told The Des Moines Register that Feller “was the engine that powered that museum.” The museum is working with the city of Van Meter and the Cleveland Indians to develop options.

ISU’s Christofferson, Johnson Earn Big 12 Weekly Honors

Sports

February 17th, 2014 by Jim Field

IRVING, Texas – Hallie Christofferson and Seanna Johnson picked up the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Co-Freshman of the Week honors, the league announced Monday. This was the fourth honor for Johnson and the second for Christofferson this season.

Christofferson tallied 29 points, eight rebounds and no turnovers leading the Cyclones to a win over Kansas. She shot 42.8 percent from the field, 66 percent from long range and 90 percent from the charity stripe as the game’s top scorer.

Johnson on the other hand, totaled 14 points and eight rebounds in Iowa State’s 72-69 win over Kansas, while shooting 50 percent from the field. The freshman’s 14-point performance was her 12th double-digit scoring game of the season.

Johnson’s honor marks the seventh Freshman of the Week honor for Iowa State this season, as fellow freshman Jadda Buckley earned three weekly honors. The Cyclones have captured a league-best seven Freshman of the Week honors so far this season.

The seven Newcomer of the Week honors also breaks the school record of six, which was set in 1998 when the Cyclones grabbed six Newcomer of the Week honors, with Cyclone greats Stacy Frese and Megan Taylor nabbing six between the two.

Christofferson, Johnson and the rest of the Cyclones will take the court on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to take on No. 6 Baylor in Waco, Texas.
