PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Melissa Dixon scored 21 points, hitting six 3-pointers to give her the school record, leading No. 20 Iowa to a 79-72 win over 16th-ranked Rutgers on Sunday. Samantha Logic added 17 for the Hawkeyes (11-2, 2-0 Big Ten) and Ally Disterhoft and Bethany Doolittle had 14 apiece.

Rutgers was within 54-52 with 12 minutes left but went cold and an 11-2 run put the Hawkeyes ahead by 11 with 6:45 left. Iowa shot 52 percent from the field but an 11 of 24 performance at the foul line gave Rutgers hope down the stretch, although the Scarlet Knights couldn’t convert. Kahleah Copper had 22 points and Tyler Scaife 20 for Rutgers (10-4, 1-2). Betnijah Laney had 13 rebounds.

Dixon now has 263 3-pointers, two more than Lindsey Meder. Dixon also surpassed Rutgers assistant Tia Jackson on the Iowa career scoring list (1,180 points). Logic had six assists to surpass 700 for her career.

Tennessee overwhelms Iowa in TaxSlayer Bowl, 45-28

Sports

January 2nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Joshua Dobbs accounted for three touchdowns, Jalen Hurd ran for two scores and Tennessee beat Iowa 45-28 on Friday in the TaxSlayer Bowl for its first postseason victory since the Phillip Fulmer era. The Volunteers (7-6) scored on their first four possessions, leading 28-0 before Iowa (7-6) managed 70 yards.

Hurd, Dobbs and a bit of trickery helped Tennessee build the big lead. Hurd broke tackles on nearly every run, capping Tennessee’s first possession with a 3-yard score and adding a 29-yard touchdown scamper on the next drive.

Tennessee made it 21-0 late in the first quarter when Dobbs threw a lateral to running back Marlin Lane in the right flat. Lane, a senior from nearby Daytona Beach, turned and hit Vic Wharton in stride down the sideline. It was Tennessee’s first postseason victory since beating Wisconsin in the 2008 Outback Bowl.

Groups back Iowa State in sexual misconduct appeal

News, Sports

January 2nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Groups representing rape victims and college administrators are asking a court to uphold Iowa State’s decision to kick a basketball player off the team for alleged sexual misconduct. The Victim Rights Law Center and Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education say the case of former Cyclone guard Bubu Palo has national significance. Iowa State is asking the Iowa Supreme Court to reverse an August ruling that found there wasn’t evidence that Palo violated its sexual misconduct policy.

In a friend-of-the-court brief filed Monday, the national groups say the case could impact students and colleges in Iowa and across the country. They say universities must be able to use internal disciplinary hearings to enforce stricter standards of sexual misconduct than criminal law allows.
