Cooke to sign with Iowa State

Sports

May 20th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Oregon State guard Hallice Cooke says he plans to sign with Iowa State. Cooke averaged 8.2 points a game while shooting 46 percent from 3-point range as a freshman in 2013-14. He’ll sit out next season and have three years of eligibility left. Cooke, a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Union City, New Jersey, tells The Associated Press that he built a strong relationship with Iowa State’s players during a visit earlier this month.

Cooke also says the opportunity to join a winning program and play for coach Fred Hoiberg factored into his decision to join the Cyclones. Iowa State announced earlier Monday that 7-foot-1 Greek center Georgios Tsalmpouris had signed with the Cyclones.

Iowa St golf teams finally reach NCAA tournament

Sports

May 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa State men’s golf team used to be an afterthought. Snapping a 61-year NCAA tournament drought should finally have college golf fans talking about the Cyclones. Fourth-year coach Andrew Tank and the Iowa State men’s team are headed to the NCAA tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas, later this week for the first time since 1953.

Although the NCAA doesn’t keep track of such statistics, it’s believed to be the longest drought between NCAA appearances in the history of men’s golf. They’ve been joined by the Iowa State women, who’ll tee off in the NCAA tournament for the first time in Tulsa on Tuesday.

Chiefs sign offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb

Sports

May 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs have signed former Vikings and Bears offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb and three undrafted free agents as they prepare for the start of organized team activities next week. Webb started 45 of the 54 games he’s played in over four seasons in the NFL. He has played both tackle positions and should compete for one of the backup jobs in Kansas City after starting left tackle Branden Albert departed in free agency.

The Chiefs also signed James Baker, a fullback out of Idaho; Ben Gottschalk, a center from SMU; and Cairo Santos, a kicker out of Tulane. The Chiefs begin a three-day rookie minicamp Saturday. Full-squad OTAs begin May 27.

The team announced the moves Monday.

ISU’s Farniok On Rimington Award Watch List

Sports

May 19th, 2014 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Two-time All-Big 12 center Tom Farniok was named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Award Spring Watch List, announced today by the Rimington Award.

The Rimington Award is given annually to the nation’s best center and is named after Dave Rimington, who is considered one of college football’s greatest centers during his All-American career at Nebraska (1979-82).

A native of Sioux Falls, S.D., Farniok enters his senior season with 35 career starts, the most by any current Cyclone. He was Iowa State’s Arthur Floyd Scott Award winner in 2013 as the Cyclones’ top offensive lineman.

Farniok was an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick as a sophomore (2012) and added second-team All-Big 12 accolades by the San Antionio Express-News as a junior (2013).

Farniok will earn his degree in the summer and begin coursework in graduate school.

ISU signs Greek center Tsalmpouris

Sports

May 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State says it has signed 7-foot-1 Greek center Georgios Tsalmpouris (sal-BORE-us) to a letter of intent. Tsalmpouris, who doesn’t turn 18 until next month, is a member of Greece’s national team. Tsalmpouris will be just the fifth 7-foot player in school history, and he’ll be eligible to play starting next season.

Tsalmpouris and 6-foot-9 center Jameel McKay should help provide Iowa State with the post presence it lacked at times last season. But it’s unclear if Tsalmpouris will redshirt or be ready to contribute as a freshman

Cyclones coach Fred Hoiberg says Tsalmpouris fits Iowa State’s style of play because he can run the floor and shoot from the perimeter.
