Kansas Tops Iowa State Women In 2OT


January 12th, 2012 by Jim Field

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas’ Angel Goodrich was only 5-of-16 from the field but she hit a long three-point bucket with five seconds left to send the Jayhawks’ game against Iowa State to a second overtime in which KU went on to a 74-67 victory in Allen Fieldhouse Wednesday. Kansas’ Carolyn Davis scored nearly all of her 21 points playing with four fouls through the last 20 minutes of the game as Iowa State suffered another heartbreaking loss at Kansas. The Jayhawks are 13-2 overall and 2-1 in the Big 12 Conference. Iowa State falls to 9-5 overall and 0-3 in the Big 12.

Iowa State, which led by 13 with 9:30 left in regulation, scored just once in a late five-minute stretch of the second half.  The Cyclones, led by Chelsea Poppens’ 24 points and 15 rebounds, were outscored 11-4 in the second overtime.  Anna Prins had 19 points and seven rebounds for Iowa State.

Iowa State started the second half in full gear. Six different Cyclones scored on a 16-11 run out of the gate and the Cyclones led 44-31 with 9:30 left in the game.

The Cyclones took a 20-18 first-half lead on a quick three by Kelsey Harris off the bench with 2:45 left in the first half. A Poppens free throw gave the Cyclones a 24-18 lead at the break.  Iowa State outscored KU 12-2 over the last seven minutes of the first half with Goodrich’s jumper with 4:41 remaining the final Jayhawk points before halftime.

Iowa State attacked the basket throughout the game but were saddled with 23 turnovers that kept Kansas in the contest.

Iowa State plays host to defending NCAA champion Texas A&M Saturday at 7 p.m. CST in Hilton Coliseum.

No. 9 Missouri gets past Iowa State 76-69


January 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — No. 9 Missouri was down to five players with a minute left and the host Cyclones breathing down its neck. The undermanned Tigers responded in the clutch yet again and put their only loss of the season behind them. Matt Pressey led six players in double figures with 14 points and the Tigers got past Iowa State 76-69 on Wednesday night. Phil Pressey and Ricardo Ratliffe each added 12 points for the Tigers (15-1, 2-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a 75-59 loss at Kansas State with a team effort — even though that team normally uses only seven players. The only Missouri player to fall short of 10 points was leading scorer Marcus Denmon. But he had a game-high seven assists and four crucial free throws in the final 21 seconds after Kim English and Steve Moore had fouled out. Missouri pushed a four-point lead to 72-66 on Ratliffe’s hook shot with 32 seconds left. Iowa State’s Chris Allen responded with a quick 3, but Denmon put the Cyclones away at the line. Scott Christopherson had 19 points and Allen scored 17 for Iowa State (12-4, 2-1), which lost for the first time in eight games. Royce White finished with 16 points and six rebounds, but he was just 2 of 8 from the free throw line. The Cyclones were outrebounded 38-27, hit only four 3s in the second half and went 13 of 25 from the line. The Cyclones were also outscored 40-20 in the paint by Missouri.

Iowa State entered play with its first 2-0 start in the Big 12 in five years, and a win would have given them a 3-0 record in the league for the first time since 2000. Hilton Coliseum certainly anticipated a big night for the program, with a near-sellout crowd into things from the opening tip. But by letting the Tigers off the hook, the Cyclones were reminded that wins against the Big 12′s elite are nearly impossible if they make as many mistakes as they did against Missouri.

Iowa lawmakers likely to revisit lead shot / dove hunting issue

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Legislators are likely to engage in a spirited debate over what kind of bullets may be fired at doves. Last year, in uncharacteristically speedy fashion, lawmakers voted to legalize dove hunting in Iowa. But Senator Dick Dearden of Des Moines and others are upset with the Iowa Natural Resources Commission’s decision to forbid hunters from using lead shot when firing at doves. “People talk about the legislature sneaking this (law) through and the reality is they snuck through that (restriction),” Dearden says. “They came through at the last minute and made the rule.” The rule requires the use of steel shot for dove hunting, but a resolution that would nullify that rule is pending in both the Iowa House and the Iowa Senate. Representative Henry Rayhons, of Garner, stopped by a local gun shop last week and heard lots of complaints about steel shot.

“It’s not as accurate,” Rayhons says. “It’s harder on the guns and it’s darned near twice as expensive.” Critics say animals, like ducks and eagles, die after eating the lead shot lying on the ground that didn’t wind up in a bird. Dearden, a life-long hunter, accuses those opponents of using the lead-shot issue as a smoke-screen to try to derail the entire dove hunting law. “It’s all about doves,” Dearden says. “It has nothing to do with eagles or anything else.” Dearden says he got plenty of hate mail after spearheading passage of the dove hunting law last year.

“My favorite was a woman who said: ‘You’re a sick old man. I hope you die while hunting mourning doves,’” Dearden says. “I emailed her back and said: ‘So do I.’” Critics of lead shot say it’s a danger to humans, too, who eat bird meat that’s riddled with lead fragments. One study suggested lead particles have been found up to a foot and a half away, causing a greater risk of lead poisoning to humans than previously thought.

Drake beats Bradley 82-74


January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ben Simons scored 21 points to lead four Drake players in double figures, and the Bulldogs defeated Bradley 82-74 on Tuesday night, handing the Braves their eighth loss in a row. Rayvonte Rice had 19 points, Kurt Alexander scored 17 before fouling out and Jeremy Jeffers had 11 points for Drake (9-7, 2-3 Missouri Valley). Kraidon Woods grabbed 14 rebounds for the winners. Taylor Brown led all players with 28 points for Bradley (5-12, 0-5). He also had 12 rebounds. Walt Lemon Jr. scored 16 and Dyricus Harris-Edwards added 15 points for the Braves, who led by 10 early before Drake trimmed Bradley’s lead to 34-33 at halftime. There were 53 fouls called in the game, 29 on Bradley. Drake was 28 for 40 at the free-throw line, led by Rice’s 13 of 18, while Bradley made 24 of its 35 foul shots.

Northern Iowa loses 63-60 to No. 23 Creighton


January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Northern Iowa kept Creighton star Doug McDermott under control, and the Panthers started the game making 3-pointers in rapid succession. Then came an 11½-minute stretch in which they couldn’t score a field goal, and they ended up with a 63-60 loss to the 23rd-ranked Bluejays on Tuesday night. After scoring 31 points the first 13 minutes, the Panthers managed only 29 in the final 27. The Panthers held McDermott, the nation’s second-leading scorer at 25.2 points a game, to 14. But all the attention they gave to McDermott allowed Antoine Young to score a season-high 21 points for the Bluejays. Young, shooting 39 percent for the season, made 9 of 14 shots, with his only 3-pointer giving the Bluejays a five-point lead with 2 minutes left. The Bluejays (14-2, 4-1 Missouri Valley Conference) could never build a safe lead despite shutting down the Panthers (12-5, 2-3) for such a long stretch over the first and second halves. Marc Sonnen scored a season-high 15 points for Northern Iowa — all in the first half — and Anthony James added 10. The Panthers went 8 of 12 from 3-point range in the first half to build a double-digit lead and finished with a season-high 12 3s.

Green leads No. 6 Michigan State over Iowa 95-61


January 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Draymond Green had 22 points and nine rebounds to help No. 6 Michigan State beat Iowa 95-61 on Tuesday night for its 15th straight win. The win gives the Spartans (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) their longest winning streak since the 1998-99 season, when they won 22 in a row before losing to Duke in the national championship game. The Hawkeyes (10-8, 2-3) have been routed in two straight games — they also lost to Ohio State — after beating Wisconsin and Minnesota on the road. Aaron White scored 15 points and Devyn Marble had 12 for Iowa. Michigan State went on a 16-0 run late in the first half and had a 14-0 spurt midway through the second. During the second burst, Iowa coach Fran McCaffery was called for a technical for berating an official. McCaffery then directed his anger toward his players, slamming a chair in their timeout huddle and screaming in their faces.
