Depth fuels No. 23 Iowa to 10-1 start

Sports

December 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery’s solution to having 10 guys who can play has been to play them all. It has made the Hawkeyes one of the deepest and most dangerous teams in the country. No. 23 Iowa (10-1) heads into Friday night’s game at No. 17 Iowa State (7-0) with a rotation that’s the envy of opponents everywhere. The Hawkeyes have 10 players averaging at least 15 minutes per game, and they’re getting nearly half of their Big Ten-leading 89.5 points a game from their backups.

Iowa’s talented and experienced pool of reserves is a major reason why the Hawkeyes are fourth nationally with a scoring margin of plus-24.6 a game.

DES MOINES, Iowa(AP) — Drake senior guard Gary Ricks Jr., the team’s second-leading scorer, will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot. The Bulldogs say that Ricks, who is averaging 12.3 points a game with a team-high 3.6 assists, has a fractured bone in his left foot.

Ricks was shooting 45 percent from 3-point range for Drake, which has surged to a surprising 6-2 start. Ricks also scored 25 points for the Bulldogs in a win over Fresno State late last month.

Matheny is impressed with Peralta

Sports

December 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals hold their players to a high standard of conduct, and manager Mike Matheny is certain Jhonny Peralta will fit right in. The Cardinals’ new shortstop was suspended last summer along as part of Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis clinic. Peralta served a 50-game drug suspension and returned to the Tigers at the end of the regular season.

Several players around the majors expressed anger when Peralta signed a $53 million, four-year contract with St. Louis in November. But Matheny sees a player who popular with his teammates and is working to make amends. “Been very proud just from the outside of him being part of our club now and watched how he’s handled this. He’s been very remorseful but taking it like a man. He made a mistake. This is what’s happened. Now I’d like to move on. And I get that,” Matheny said.

Hawkeye OL Scherff to Return for Senior Season

Sports

December 10th, 2013 by Jim Field

Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff announced Monday that he plans to return for his senior season with the Hawkeyes.  Scherff made the announcement on Denison radio station KDSN and confirmed that on the Hawkeye Radio Network during last night’s basketball pre-game show heard on KJAN.  The 6-5, 315 pound left tackle was one of the big reasons Iowa was able to complete an 8-4 regular season and receive an Outback Bowl invitation.  Scherff was named a Big 10 first team all-conference member.  Many draft experts predicted Scherff as a possible first round pick in the NFL draft.

Chiefs find Redskins to be tonic for ills

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs snapped a three-game skid by dismantling the Washington Redskins over the weekend. It wasn’t just a blowout, either. It was 45-10, that rare lopsided outcome in the NFL in which a team can start playing its backups by the fourth quarter. It was the kind of game that can fill a team with confidence.

Now, Kansas City (10-3) can clinch a playoff berth by winning at Oakland (4-9) on Sunday, or if the Dolphins lose at home to New England or the Ravens lose at Detroit on Monday night.
