March 1st, 2014 by Chris Parks

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Shane Southwell had 13 points and Kansas State overcame a huge game by Iowa State star Melvin Ejim to beat the 15th-ranked Cyclones 80-73 on Saturday night.

Thomas Gipson and D.J. Johnson added 12 points apiece for the Wildcats (20-9, 10-6 Big 12), who can still earn the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. They play at Oklahoma State on Monday and then host Baylor on Saturday to end the regular season.

Kansas State has won 15 straight at Bramlage Coliseum, its longest home winning streak since the 1981-82 season.

Ejim had 30 points and 16 rebounds, and DeAndre Kane added 24 points and eight rebounds to pace the Cyclones (22-6, 10-6).

Drake Defeats Bradley Saturday


March 1st, 2014 by Chris Parks

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Richard Carter, who finished with 18 points, hit a jump shot and made two free throws in the final 14 seconds to give Drake a 71-66 victory over Bradley Saturday.

Bradley had a 37-26 halftime lead, but Drake started the second half with a 16-4 run to take the lead 42-41 with 14:32 remaining. The teams exchanged the lead until a Carter free throw with 3:39 left gave Drake a 64-63 advantage. Chris Caird hit a 3-point jumper for a 67-63 lead at the 2:58 mark. Walt Lemon Jr. dunked to close to 67-66 but Carter closed the door with his four points in the final seconds.

Aaron Hawley led Drake (15-15, 6-12 Missouri Valley Conference) with 23 points, hitting 5 of 8 3-point attempts.

Bradley (12-19, 7-11), which has now lost five of its last six games, was led by Lemon, Jr with 20 points.

Lynn solid for Cardinals, Marlins win 5-4


March 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Cardinals starter Lance Lynn allowed one hit in two shutout innings Saturday as a split squad of Miami Marlins beat St. Louis 5-4. Lynn is coming off his first season of pitching at least 200 innings. He says he hasn’t experienced any ill effects following that workload. The Marlins won on Avery Romero’s game-ending single in the ninth. St. Louis hit Nathan Eovaldi hard but only managed one run off the Marlins starter.

Randal Grichuk, acquired in the trade that sent David Freese to the Angels, appeared to be fooled by Eovaldi’s offspeed pitch yet still generated enough power with a one-handed swing to send a line drive over the head of center fielder Marcell Ozuna for an RBI triple. Miami scored four times in the fourth, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Greg Dobbs, Jeff Mathis and Ozuna all getting RBIs. Scott Moore’s solo homer in the Cardinals eighth made it 4-all.
