Lynn solid for Cardinals, Marlins win 5-4

Sports

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.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Seth Tuttle scored 23 points Saturday as Northern Iowa beat Indiana State 71-69 in a game in which both teams lost double-digit leads. Indiana State (21-9, 12-16 Missouri Valley) had a chance to win, but Jake Odum’s 3-point try at the buzzer missed.

The win guarantees Northern Iowa (16-14, 10-8) the No. 3 seed in the MVC Tournament and gives coach Ben Jacobson his 166th victory, tying him with O.M. “Hon” Nordly (1938-43 and 1946-54) for all-time UNI wins. Nate Buss scored 14 and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Panthers and Deon Mitchell scored 10.

Odum led the Sycamores with 16, Khristian Smith had 15, Manny Arop and Dawon Cumming scored 10 apiece and Arop grabbed 11 rebounds. Northern Iowa had a 27-17 first-half lead, but Indiana State rallied to lead 39-35 at halftime. The Sycamores’ 11-point second-half lead fizzled and Tuttle’s 3 at 3:37 put Northern Iowa up 70-67.

Iowa St PG Morris on pace for NCAA record

Sports

February 28th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State addressed its lack of experience at point guard with senior transfer DeAndre Kane. It turned out that the kid coach Fred Hoiberg recruited for the job was ready for it all along. Freshman Monte Morris has become indispensable for the 15th-ranked Cyclones (22-5, 10-5 Big 12), largely because he’s better at protecting the basketball than anyone in the country.

Morris has 101 assists against just 17 turnovers this season. He’s on pace to shatter the NCAA’s assist-to-turnover ratio record of 3.96-to-1 set by Tyler Newbold of Utah State in 2009. Iowa State, which has won seven of eight since making Morris a starter, faces Kansas State (19-9, 9-6) on Saturday.

Sheehey sends Indiana past No. 20 Iowa, 93-86

Sports

February 28th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Will Sheehey scored 19 of his career-high 30 points in the first half and Stanford Robinson added a career-best 17 to lead Indiana over No. 20 Iowa 93-86 on Thursday night in a game that was postponed last week. The Hoosiers (16-12, 6-9 Big Ten) went on a 9-0 run in the second half, capped by a 3-pointer from Evan Gordon that gave them a 62-60 lead with 13:13 remaining.

Roy Devyn Marble had 20 points and Aaron White added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (19-9, 8-7), who have lost three straight. The Hoosiers scored six straight points to take a 77-69 lead when Robinson converted a three-point play. Sheehey dunked to give Indiana an 82-73 advantage with 1:35 remaining.

The game originally was slated for last week but was postponed after an 8-foot, 50-pound steel plate fell from the ceiling of Assembly Hall about 6½ hours before the scheduled start.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Theairra Taylor scored 21 points Thursday night and No. 25 Iowa pulled away in the second half to beat Ohio State 65-61.
