Christofferson Leads Cyclones Past MVSU, 77-47


December 12th, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Without the services of post players Chelsea Poppens and Anna Prins, someone had to step up for Iowa State in Sunday’s home game against Mississippi Valley State. Hallie Christofferson got the message. The sophomore scored a career-high  24 points in 22 minutes of play as the Cyclones posted a 77-47 victory over the Devilettes Sunday in Hilton Coliseum. The victory lifts Iowa State to 6-2. Mississippi Valley State falls to 2-5.

Christofferson scored 11 of Iowa State’s first 16 points with a 3-pointer and four buckets under the basket as Iowa State jumped out to a 16-6 advantage in the first six minutes. The Cyclones were off to the races and steadily built a lead that stood at 40-19 at the half.  Christofferson left the game with 12:29 remaining. Her previous single-game points high was 21 at Kansas last season.

Amanda Zimmerman scored 11 points in 12 second-half minutes. Fallon Ellis had 11 points and seven rebounds off the bench and Brynn Williamson added 10 points her first career start.

Mississippi Valley State hit on just 3-of-18 shots beyond the arc. The Devilettes were led by 11 points and nine rebounds from Ka’Neshia Smith and Brittney Lakes also reached double-figures with 10 points.

With Poppens sitting out the contest, her streak of 73 consecutive games played was broken. Iowa State has now won 62 straight regular-season nonconference home games.

Iowa State’s next game is when it plays host to Northern Iowa Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. CST in Hilton Coliseum.

Weak First Half Dooms Chiefs in 37-10 Loss to Jets


December 11th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Todd Haley could have spent the rest of Sunday pointing out everything his Kansas City Chiefs did wrong – just in the first half. Coming off two strong defensive performances, the Chiefs couldn’t get out of their own way in a 37-10 loss. They couldn’t get in the Jets’ way, either, falling behind 28-3 by halftime. “The first half, when we can’t get a first down and are terrible keeping the other team from getting a first down, that will not be a good half,” Haley said. “They did a great job in the red zone,” he added about the Jets. “They were more prepared and just played better, period.” Through two quarters, New York (8-5) led Kansas City 253-4 in yards, 16-1 in first downs, and 20:34-9:26 in time of possession. Not a formula for success for the Chiefs (5-8).

The second half wasn’t much better, marked mostly by penalties. In the most brutal stretch, the Chiefs were penalized five times for 81 yards during the Jets’ final touchdown drive. One of those was an unsportsmanlike conduct call on Haley. Kansas City finished with 11 penalties. Tyler Palko was sacked five times, a week after the quarterback earned his first victory as a starter at Chicago. He was 3 for 8 for 11 yards in the first half. He finished 16 of 32 for 195 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Dwayne Bowe dropped a would-be touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter for Kansas City. Mark Sanchez threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Jets improved their lot in the AFC playoff race. The Jets were helped by that inept Chiefs offense, and KC couldn’t stop New York’s rushing game, either.

Notes: Chiefs K Ryan Succop badly botched an onside kick attempt that traveled 3 yards early in the fourth quarter. … Chiefs S Jon McGraw left in the second quarter with an injured left ankle and didn’t return. … New York’s five sacks were a season high. … Chiefs RB Thomas Jones had just 12 yards on five carries, but passed Eddie George and Tiki Barber for 22nd on the NFL’s career list.

Iowa’s Norm Parker to Retire After 13 Seasons


December 11th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa defensive coordinator Norm Parker says he’s retiring after 13 seasons with the Hawkeyes. The 70-year-old Parker says in a statement released by the school that he’s stepping down following Iowa’s matchup with Oklahoma in the Insight Bowl on Dec. 30. The Hawkeyes have not yet said who will replace Parker.

Iowa ranked in the top 10 nationally in scoring defense in 2008, 2009 and 2010 under Parker, who was recently named the Assistant Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. But Parker battled health issues last season and had his foot amputated in the fall of 2010 because of diabetes. Parker began his college coaching career in 1968 and also made stops at Wake Forest, Minnesota, Illinois, East Carolina, Michigan State and Vanderbilt.
