Iowa State rolls past Prairie View A&M, 84-59

Sports

December 7th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Percy Gibson laid out a simple goal for himself in his first start for Iowa State.”I just wanted to come in and make as much impact as I could early so we could just keep the team going,” the freshman said.He did exactly that. Gibson scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half and Iowa State broke out of a two-game shooting slump with an 84-59 victory over Prairie View A&M on Tuesday night. Gibson started in place of Royce White, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, and came up big in helping the Cyclones (6-3) regain their touch after shooting just 39 percent in consecutive losses to Northern Iowa and Michigan. White did not start because he was 3 minutes late for the morning shoot-around.Chris Allen had 16 points for the Cyclones, who shot 55 percent in the first half and 52 percent for the game. White, who entered the game after the first media timeout, and Tyrus McGee each added 12 points. Jourdan DeMuynck’s 18 points led Prairie View (2-7), which lost its seventh straight.

Northern Iowa blows by Iowa 80-60

December 7th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery, who’s known for his fiery demeanor on the sidelines, finally lost it on the officials and got himself ejected.Northern Iowa stayed calm, like it usually does, and turned a tight game against the Hawkeyes into an uncharacteristic rout.Anthony James scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half and Northern Iowa blew past a frustrated Iowa 80-60 for its seventh straight win.Jake Koch added 13 points and six assists for the Panthers (8-1), who hit 11 3-pointers and improved to 3-0 against major-conference opponents this season. Northern Iowa led by just two points midway through the second half. But three consecutive technical fouls by the Hawkeyes helped spur a decisive 20-2 run by the Panthers.McCaffery, who was ejected with 4:47 to go after drawing his second technical, refused to address the events that led to his exit after the game.

“I thought our kids really fought hard (Tuesday) night, I really did,” McCaffery said when asked about the technicals.Devyn Marble had 14 points to lead Iowa (5-4), which played without starting point guard Bryce Cartwright. Cartwright is nursing a sore hamstring, and McCaffery said he’s not sure if Cartwright will be ready to play at Iowa State on Friday night.Northern Iowa was up 47-45 with 9:46 remaining when McCaffery went ballistic over a foul call, knocking over what appeared to be a basket of rosin from the scorer’s table in disgust and drawing his first technical.

James knocked down four straight free throws. The Hawkeyes drew two more technicals – one on the bench, another on Zach McCabe for punching the ball – and Northern Iowa stretched its lead to 55-45 in just 20 seconds.Iowa never recovered. James’ 3-pointer with 6:20 left put the Panthers ahead 61-47, rendering the rest of a chaotic night at the McLeod Center as garbage time. Northern Iowa, which also fell behind by 10 early in a 69-62 win at Iowa State last week, calmly scored the next eight points to prevent the Hawkeyes from running away with things.Chip Rank gave Northern Iowa its first lead, 24-23, on a 3-pointer with just over four minutes left in the first half. The Hawkeyes then left Rank wide open in the corner, and he converted a rare four-point play that helped put the Panthers ahead 32-27 at halftime.Northern Iowa was 29 of 33 from the free-throw line – with some of those attempts coming thanks to the Hawkeyes – and shot 45.5 percent from the field.Northern Iowa has three winnable home games left before the start of Missouri Valley play at Illinois State on Dec. 29.

Second Shotgun Deer Season Opens December 10th

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

December 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says hunters have reported harvesting nearly 61,000 deer so far this fall which is about 10 percent fewer than last year. Fewer deer were taken during the opening weekend of the first shotgun season due partly to less than ideal hunting conditions, but concerned hunters are commenting that they are seeing fewer deer across much of the state.

Iowa’s first shotgun season closes tomorrow (Dec. 7th). The DNR expects that 50,000 hunters will take the field for the second shotgun season which runs from December 10th – 18th. Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

In areas where deer numbers are down, hunters should work with the landowner to see if the deer population is at a desirable level. Hunters should refrain from taking extra does if deer numbers are reduced. In some areas deer numbers are still strong and can take the extra pressure. The DNR says Hunters are the key to a properly managed Iowa’s deer herd.

Safety First

Blaze orange is required for hunters participating in the shotgun hunts and party hunting is legal. Hunters who hunt in a party should plan their hunt and hunt their plan. They should never shoot if they are unsure of what is beyond the animal they are harvesting. Hunters using blinds during the shotgun seasons are reminded that they are required to display at least 144 square inches of blaze orange that is visible from all directions (see p. 23 of the 2011 Hunting Regulations for more information).

Report Your Harvest

All deer taken must be reported using the harvest reporting system by midnight the day after the deer is recovered.  Accurately reporting the harvest is an important part of Iowa’s deer management program and plays a vital role in managing deer populations and future hunting opportunities. It is also required by law and officers will be checking to see if all deer have been reported.

For hunters with Internet access, the online harvest reporting is the easiest way to register the deer. Hunters can report their deer online at www.iowadnr.gov, by calling the toll free reporting number 1-800-771-4692, or at any license vendor.  

Tagging Antlered Deer

Hunters are reminded that antlered deer must have the transportation tag attached to the antler’s main beam, either at the base or between two points. 

Youth Season Tags

Youth season hunters with an unfilled “any-deer” license from the youth deer season who did not harvest a deer are eligible to hunt during one of the two shotgun seasons. However, the youth hunter must follow the weapons restrictions that are in place during the season and be under the direct supervision of a licensed adult. A youth must harvest and tag their own deer.
