February 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Karly Roser’s layup just before time expired lifted Northwestern to a 67-65 Big Ten win over Number 24 Iowa on Sunday. The lady Hawkeyes (16-7, 5-4) had tied the game with Melissa Dixon’s basket with 3 seconds to play. Dixon led the home team in Iowa City with 21 points. Northwestern (11-11, 3-6) trailed 42-27 with 15:26 to play, but pulled even at 49 with 9:21 to play on Kendall Hackney’s basket.

Hackney led the Wildcats with 18 points. Dannielle Diamant had 15 points and seven rebounds, Maggie Lyon scored 12 and Roser had 11 points and eight rebounds. Jaime Printy had 12 points and Samantha Logic had 11 points and 12 rebounds for Iowa. Morgan Johnson scored 11 before fouling out. Iowa moved into the rankings this week, but lost at Illinois before this game. The Hawkeyes had won 19 of previous 20 meetings with the Wildcats.

No. 23 Minnesota escapes Iowa with 62-59 win


February 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Austin Hollins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.6 seconds left, lifting No. 23 Minnesota to a 62-59 victory over Iowa on Sunday afternoon.  Hollins finished with 17 points to help the Gophers (17-5, 5-4 Big Ten) survive a rough second half and escape the scrappy Hawkeyes (14-8, 3-6).

With Minnesota trailing 59-57, the 6-foot-4 Hollins came off a screen to get open in the corner on an inbounds play and made the shot over 6-foot-1 Mike Gesell. Hollins then hounded Gesell in the corner on the other end to force the ball out of bounds.  Andre Hollins, who had 15 points, made two free throws to stretch the lead to three, and Gesell’s tying attempt rolled off the front rim. Gesell finished with 11 points, and Aaron White and Zach McCabe each had 10 for the Hawkeyes.

Panthers Shock Shockers


February 3rd, 2013 by Chris Parks

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) – Anthony James scored 16 points and Northern Iowa beat 15th-ranked Wichita State 57-52 on Saturday, sending the Shockers into their first losing streak of the season.

Seth Tuttle had eight points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Panthers (12-11, 5-6 Missouri Valley Conference). They took control with a 14-0 run in the second half and became just the fourth Valley team in the last 23 games to beat Wichita State at home.

The Shockers (19-4, 8-3) pulled within 52-50 on Carl Hall’s steal and bucket with 1:18 left. But Northern Iowa’s Seth Tuttle blocked a Nick Wiggins try that would have tied it and then sealed the win with a breakaway dunk.

Hall led Wichita State with 20 points. The Shockers, who lost to Indiana State on Tuesday, have dropped a game behind league-leading Creighton in the Valley race.

Simons finished with a game-high 21 points, including 4 of 5 baskets from 3-point range. Clarke had 13 points and Richard Carter had 11 for Drake (11-11, 5-6 Missouri Valley).

A basket by Manny Arup brought Indiana State (14-8, 7-4) to within 72-71 with 2:17 left in overtime. After a drought by both teams, Chris Hines iced it for Drake on two free throws with 6 seconds to play.

R.J. Mahurin and Jake Odum each scored 14 points to lead the Sycamores, and Justin Gant scored 11.
