BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Senior Brittany Wilson scored a career-high 26 points for No. 16 Colorado in a 90-87 win over Iowa on Wednesday night. Colorado was up 48-35 at halftime, but Iowa opened with a 7-0 run. Minutes later, Iowa pulled to within 56-54, but Colorado went on a 15-2 run to extend its lead. Iowa wouldn’t go away, responding with a 12-1 burst to make it 72-68 with 5:18 remaining. Colorado made 7 of 10 free throws in the final minute to secure the win.

Arielle Roberson had 17 points, nine rebounds and six assists for Colorado (3-0). Samantha Logic had 26 points and six assists for Iowa (4-1). The Hawkeyes were trying to become the third team to beat two or more Top-25 teams this season. Iowa beat then-No. 14 Dayton on Nov. 10th.

In Colorado’s last 35 games, Iowa is the only team to reach the 70-point plateau.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Broncos’ win over the previously undefeated Chiefs drew the largest television audience for a prime-time November game in 17 years. Denver’s 27-17 victory averaged 26.9 million viewers Sunday on NBC. The network said Tuesday that was up 48 percent from last season’s Week 11 “Sunday Night Football” game between Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

It was the most for a November prime-time NFL game since 31.5 million people watched the defending Super Bowl champion Cowboys beat Brett Favre and the Packers on “Monday Night Football” on ABC in 1996, when the population was smaller.

Chiefs release DT Toribio, sign DT Love

Sports

November 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have released defensive tackle Anthony Toribio and signed former New England Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love. The Chiefs made the moves Tuesday, two days after a loss to the Denver Broncos.

Toribio joined the Chiefs in 2010 and had hung around the past four seasons, despite having to impress three different head coaches. He was pressed into service against the Broncos on Sunday night when Mike DeVito had to leave a 27-17 loss with a leg injury. It’s unknown how long DeVito will be out.

Love started 25 games over the past three seasons in New England, but was waived in May after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He was claimed by the Jaguars and cut in September.

Iowa’s Canzeri proves value vs. Purdue

Sports

November 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa sophomore Jordan Canzeri was essentially forgotten for most of the year as the Hawkeyes leaned on fellow running backs Mark Weisman and Damon Bullock. Canzeri enters Iowa’s most crucial stretch of the season more valuable than ever. Canzeri did more than just give Weisman and Bullock a breather in Iowa’s last game, a 38-14 romp at Purdue on Nov. 9. He brought Iowa’s stumbling running game to life with 165 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

The Hawkeyes (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) host Michigan (7-3, 3-3) on Saturday before closing out the regular season at Nebraska (7-3, 4-2). Canzeri and his fresh legs could play a key role for Iowa in the final two weeks.
