Miller helps Cardinals beat Red Sox 8-6

Sports

March 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Shelby Miller gave up a leadoff home run in his spring training debut Wednesday, then retired eight in a row to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Boston Red Sox 8-6. The game was a relaxed rematch of last year’s World Series, won by the Red Sox in six games.

Miller, who was held out of the World Series because the Cardinals didn’t want to add to the rookie’s season-long workload, gave up a homer to Daniel Nava on his second pitch. That was the lone baserunner allowed by Miller, who struck out five, four looking, and reached 95 mph on the radar gun.

Red Sox newcomer Chris Capuano, pitching his first game, went two innings and allowed two runs on a homer by Xavier Scruggs. Xander Bogaerts homered for the Red Sox.

Baylor Gets NCAA Boost, 74-61 Over No. 16 Iowa State

Sports

March 5th, 2014 by Jim Field

WACO, Texas (AP) — Brady Heslip’s final regular-season game at the Ferrell Center may just be the victory that helps get Baylor back into the NCAA tournament.

Heslip scored 18 points, with all five of his 3-pointers coming in the second half, and the Bears got a much-needed boost with a 74-61 victory over No. 16 Iowa State on Tuesday night. His tiebreaking 3 with 2:14 left started a game-ending 13-0 run.

There were 15 lead changes and four ties before Heslip put the Bears (20-10, 8-9 Big 12) ahead to stay.

And now the Bears, who have won seven of eight games since starting 2-8 in Big 12 play, feel confident they have what’s needed to get back in the NCAA field after having to settle for the NIT championship last season — a year after making it to an NCAA regional final.

The Cyclones, who lost at Kansas State on Saturday, were held under 70 points for the first time this season. Melvin Ejim, the Big 12’s leading scorer, had only six points — 13 below his average.

The Cyclones didn’t score after DeAndre Kane’s wide-open 3 tied the game at 61 with 4:10 left. That was their 12th 3-pointer in the game, only the second after halftime.

Kane had 20 points for Iowa State and Dustin Hogue added 12 for the Cyclones, who are home Saturday against Oklahoma State.

Ejim, playing on his 23rd birthday, missed his first eight shots before consecutive layups midway through the second half put the Cyclones up 49-48. The second layup came after a steal by Hogue. Ejim finished 3-of-14 shooting, missing all five of his 3-point attempts, and had nine rebounds.

Iowa State (22-7, 10-7), in the mix for the No. 2 seed in next week’s Big 12 tournament, lost its second road game in four days.

Harlan Advances with Close Win at State Tourney

Sports

March 5th, 2014 by Jim Field

Sophomore Jordyn Moser’s clutch jumper kept top-ranked Harlan’s championship hopes alive in Class 4-A.

With the score tied at 50, Harlan got the ball when North Scott was whistled for an illegal screen with 45.2 seconds remaining. The Cyclones held for one shot and coach Zach Klaasen called time with 11.8 seconds remaining to set up a final play.

The ball went to Moser, who drove toward the free throw line on the left side of the floor, stopped and hit the game winner. North Scott got a time out with .6 seconds left, but Harlan’s 6-foot-2 Jess Schaben stuffed the inbounds pass and the clock ran out.

Schaben led Harlan with 16 points, 12 rebounds and seven blocks. Moser finished with 13 points, all in the second half, and Taylor Wagner also scored 13. Schaben and the four other Harlan starters all started on the Cyclones’ volleyball team that won the state championship last fall.

Rachel Edmundson and Evan Hundley each scored 10 points for North Scott and freshman Karli Rucker added nine.

Neither team started a senior in the back and forth game. North Scott’s 3-point shooting helped the Lady Lancers build a 32-24 lead early in the second half before Harlan stormed back on five 3-pointers of its own, including three by Moser.

Moser also stole the ball and sank two free throws for a 47-41 lead with 6 1/2 minutes left. North Scott than rallied and tied it at 50 on two straight baskets by Hundley, setting the stage for the finish.

Harlan, last year’s runner-up, moves to Thursday night’s semifinals with a 24-0 record. North Scott made the tournament for the first time since 2003 and finishes 17-7.

No. 2 Wichita State dominates Valley awards

Sports

March 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Wichita State sophomore Fred VanVleet has been voted the Missouri Valley player of the year, leading a strong showing by the unbeaten Shockers in the league’s postseason awards. VanVleet received 22 of a possible 36 votes cast by coaches, athletic department officials and the media on Tuesday, easily outdistancing teammates Cleanthony Early and Ron Baker. It’s the first time in the award’s history that a school swept the top three spots.

VanVleet, Baker and Early were joined on the all-Missouri Valley first team by Evansville’s D.J. Balentine, Jake Odum of Indiana State and Seth Tuttle of Northern Iowa. Wichita State’s Tekele Cotton was voted second-team all-conference, while Darius Carter made the all-newcomer team. Cotton and VanVleet were picked for the all-defensive team.
