November 23rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) – Seth Tuttle scored 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting, and Northern Iowa never trailed Tuesday in beating Western Carolina 59-39 as part of the South Padre Invitational. Tuttle was the only player in double figures for the Panthers (3-1), who led by as many as 35 points. Jake Koch had nine points and nine rebounds, plus four blocks, three assists and three steals. Harouna Mutombo led Western Carolina (2-3) with 21 points, and Trey Sumler had 10, but they were the extent of their team’s offense. The Catamounts shot just 30 percent (14 for 47) from the field. Northern Iowa scored its last points on a three-point play by Tyler Lange with 7:20 to play. Western Carolina then went on a 15-0 run, with all the points scored by Mutombo and Sumler, to close the game. The Catamounts’ 39 points were the fewest allowed by Northern Iowa since the 2002-03 season.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Senior Chris Allen scored a season-high 23 points and Iowa State held off Northern Colorado 90-82 on Tuesday. Melvin Ejim added 12 points and Tyrus McGee, Chris Babb and Scott Christopherson each chipped in with 11 for the Cyclones (3-1), who set a new school record by hitting 16 3-pointers. Iowa State needed nearly all of those 3-point shots, as the winless Bears made the Cyclones work for their second straight win. Northern Colorado (0-4) got within 85-79 in the final 90 seconds, but Babb grabbed an errant 3-pointer and Allen hit three free throws to seal a win that was closer than expected. Tim Huskisson had 16 points to lead Northern Colorado, which also gave Northern Iowa trouble before losing 78-69 on Sunday.

Iowa RB McCall Suspended for Nebraska Game

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa freshman running back Mika’il McCall has been suspended for Friday’s regular-season finale at 22nd-ranked Nebraska for violating team rules. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz wouldn’t elaborate Tuesday on why he’s keeping McCall from making the trip. He hasn’t decided whether McCall would also be suspended from any bowl game. McCall rushed for 61 yards in the season opener for the Hawkeyes (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) before breaking his ankle. He returned for last week’s 31-21 win over Purdue, rushing for four yards on two carries. Ferentz says little-used junior Jason White will serve as the backup to Marcus Coker against the Huskers (8-3, 4-3).

Iowa QB Vandenberg Puts Together Strong 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa junior quarterback James Vandenberg has quietly put together one of the best seasons in school history entering Friday’s regular season finale at 22nd-ranked Nebraska. Vandenberg leads the Big Ten with 238.5 yards passing per game is second only to Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson with 23 touchdown passes. Vandenberg’s also thrown just five interceptions while completing 60.9 percent of his throws. Though Vandenberg has often been overshadowed by receiver Marvin McNutt and running back Marcus Coker, he’s been the leader of one of Iowa’s best offenses in recent memory. McNutt says Vandenberg has provided strong leadership this season and has developed into great player. The Hawkeyes (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) face the Huskers (8-3, 4-3) for the first time in 11 seasons and for the first time as Big Ten opponents.

World Series Champion Cardinals Get Red Carpet Treatment

ST. LOUIS (AP) – For the third time since the St. Louis Cardinals’ improbable World Series championship run, David Freese got the red carpet treatment. Life has definitely changed for the player who emerged as a star after winning MVP of the World Series and NL championship series. He represented the team at the premiere of the World Series video Tuesday night. Since Game 7, Freese has chatted with Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres, served as guest presenter at the Country Music Awards and hung out at a GQ magazine party, the latter two also with red carpet entrances he tried to duck. Before getting to his seat at the Peabody Opera House on Tuesday, Freese amiably shuffled down a receiving line doing several interviews. Teammate Kyle McClellan also attended the video premiere, although this was his first red carpet experience. Before watching the video, the reliever said he’d always remember the victory lap to celebrate with fans after Game 7.

Harris, Scott lead Virginia past Drake 60-52

Sports

November 22nd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) – Joe Harris had 18 points and Mike Scott added 14 points and nine rebounds to lead Virginia to a 60-52 victory Monday over pesky Drake in the fourth-place game of the Paradise Jam. Virginia led 26-15 at the half and pushed its lead to 36-20 in the early part of the second half after a basket by freshman Malcolm Brogdon. But Drake steadily outscored the Cavaliers from there. The Bulldogs took advantage of five straight Virginia turnovers to pull within four after a bucket by David Smith with 44 seconds left in the game. However, the Cavaliers (4-1) sealed the victory with free throws down the stretch. Harris and Scott stepped to the line and hit two each as Virginia held on for the win. Ben Simons led Drake (3-2) with 14 points, but was just 4 of 12 from the field.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and the New England Patriots shook off a sluggish start to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 34-3 on Monday night. Julian Edelman returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown and Kyle Arrington had two interceptions, helping the Patriots (7-3) increased their AFC East lead to two games. The Chiefs (4-6) weren’t expected to do much on offense behind untested quarterback Tyler Palko, making his first career start with Matt Cassel injured. And they didn’t, managing just a 26-yard field goal by Ryan Succop with 1:30 left in the first quarter for their only lead. The Patriots had their second straight dominant game after beating the New York Jets 37-16. The Chiefs lost their third straight.
