Iowa guard Jok hopes to overcome shaky offseason

Sports

October 3rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa sophomore Peter Jok has enough talent to become the face of the program someday. But first, he’ll look to rebuild his reputation following a pair of offseason arrests. Jok was arrested on his moped twice since the end of last season — once for drunk driving, once for driving it with a revoked license. He pleaded guilty to both charges. He also served a four-day jail sentence last month.

There’s little doubt that the 6-foot-6 Jok has a chance to develop into an All-Big Ten player for the Hawkeyes. But another slip-up could put Jok’s future with the Hawkeyes in jeopardy. Jok was suspended by coach Fran McCaffery in July and reinstated six weeks later. He and the Hawkeyes (20-13, 9-9 Big Ten in 2013-14) open the season on November 14th against Hampton.

October 2nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Veterans Jason Motte, Mark Ellis and A.J. Pierzynski have been left off the St. Louis Cardinals’ 25-player roster for the NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team announced its roster Thursday, when the Cardinals worked out in 95-degree heat at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers have yet to release their roster. The deadline is Friday before the teams meet in Game 1.

The Cardinals chose 12 pitchers for their roster: left-handers Randy Choate, Sam Freeman and Marco Gonzalez; and right-handers John Lackey, Lance Lynn, Seth Maness, Carlos Martinez, Shelby Miller, Pat Neshek, Trevor Rosenthal, Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright, who will start Game 1. Catcher Yadier Molina will be backed up by Tony Cruz.

The infielders are Matt Adams, Matt Carpenter, Daniel Descalso, Pete Kozma, Jhonny Peralta and Kolten Wong. The five outfielders are Peter Bourjos, Randal Grichuk, Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Oscar Taveras.

Chiefs’ Stephenson returns from 4-game suspension

Sports

October 2nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Right tackle Donald Stephenson returned to the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday following his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Now, the question is how many games it’ll take him to return to the starting lineup. Coach Andy Reid said that Stephenson would have to work his way back into the mix, and Ryan Harris remains the top right tackle heading into Sunday’s game in San Francisco.

It’s little surprise that Reid is hesitant to shake things up. After losing left guard Jeff Allen to a season-ending injury, and Stephenson to his suspension, a rejiggered offensive line has finally started to play well the past couple of weeks.

Kansas City ran roughshod over New England on Monday night in a 41-14 victory.

Wacha in bullpen to start NL division series

Sports

October 2nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Michael Wacha, who starred in the postseason as a rookie last fall, will be in the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen for the start of the NL division series. Manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday he’ll go with Adam Wainwright, Lance Lynn, John Lackey and Shelby Miller the first four games against the Dodgers. The best-of-five series starts Friday in Los Angeles.

The 23-year-old Wacha was the NL championship series MVP last year, outpitching Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw twice. He’s had trouble regaining form after a long layoff caused by a shoulder injury.

Acquired from Boston at the trade deadline, Lackey beat the Cardinals twice in the World Series and finished this year strongly. Miller barely pitched last fall due to workload concerns combined with season-long difficulties against division series opponent Pittsburgh.

ISU’s Hogue hopes to build on strong NCAA tourney

Sports

October 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State forward Dustin Hogue is looking to build off his breakout performance in last season’s NCAA tournament. Hogue scored a career-high 34 points – a total nearly three times above his season average – on 15 of 19 shooting against UConn in the Sweet Sixteen.

The Cyclones lost 81-76 to the eventual national champions. But Hogue’s performance was a fitting end to a season in which he continually exceeded expectations. The Cyclones (28-8 in 2013-14) will be looking for more big things out of Hogue, now a senior, when they open the season against Oakland on Nov. 14.

Iowa St’s Thomas, Nader suspended 3 games

Sports

October 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State’s Matt Thomas and Abdel Nader will serve three-game suspensions for offseason drunken-driving arrests. Cyclones coach Fred Hoiberg says Thomas and Nader will each miss an exhibition contest and games against Oakland and Georgia State.

Hoiberg says he’s proud of the way Thomas and Nader have conducted themselves since their arrests. Thomas averaged 5.5 points a game as a freshman last year. Nader sat out last season after transferring from Northern Illinois.
