Garcia unlikely to be ready for season’s start


February 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — St. Louis left-hander Jaime Garcia is unlikely to be ready to pitch at the start of the season, but Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak won’t completely rule out the possibility. Garcia will be returning to the Cardinals’ spring training camp after Dr. James Andrews did not find any structural damage in the pitcher’s throwing shoulder. Mozeliak said Wednesday that Garcia will receive a cortisone injection at Andrews’ office in Pensacola.

Garcia met with Cardinals’ doctors in St. Louis on Monday and with Andrews on Tuesday. Expected to be the lone left-hander in the Cardinals’ rotation, Garcia began feeling soreness in his shoulder early last week. He hasn’t thrown since Feb. 18.

Iowa State rolls over No. 15 Oklahoma State 86-69


February 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Jadda Buckley scored 26 points and Nikki Moody finished one point from a triple-double as Iowa State rolled to an 86-69 win over No. 15 Oklahoma State on Wednesday. Moody had nine points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Cyclones (19-8, 8-8 Big 12). Hallie Christofferson and Brynn Williamson contributed 17 points apiece and Seanna Johnson had 14.

Iowa State knocked down 15 of 36 3-pointers, matching a season high, and shot 52.7 percent from the field, 69.2 percent in the second half. With Buckley adding five assists, the Cyclones had helpers on 20 of 29 field goals. LaShawn Jones scored 17 points for Oklahoma State (21-6, 10-6). Liz Donohoe and Brittney Martin had 14 points each with Martin grabbing 10 rebounds. The Cowgirls were just 2 of 14 from 3-point range and shot 40.3 percent from the field.

OSU won 69-62 at Iowa State last month.

No. 15 Iowa State beats West Virginia 83-66


February 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State played nearly the entire second half without the Big 12’s leading scorer and still rolled past a team that blew it out two weeks ago. The Cyclones head into March as one of the hottest teams in the country — and they can thank their depth for that. Georges Niang scored 24 points, DeAndre Kane had 17 and 11 rebounds and Number 15 Iowa State beat West Virginia 83-66 on Wednesday night for its seventh win in eight games.

Naz Long had 15 points on five 3-pointers and Monte Morris had 12 assists without a turnover for the Cyclones (22-5, 10-5 Big 12), who brushed off star Melvin Ejim’s foul trouble with a balanced and potent attack. Dustin Hogue helped cover for Ejim’s absence inside with 15 points and nine rebounds, including a rare 3 with 3:17 left that put the Cyclones ahead 79-65.

Iowa State pulled itself together in the second half for its seventh conference win of February — the most the Cyclones have ever had in the same month.

Northern Iowa crushes Southern Illinois 73-54


February 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Seth Tuttle scored 19 points with seven assists and seven rebounds as Northern Iowa crushed Southern Illinois 73-54 on Wednesday night. Matt Bohannon added 17 points for the Panthers (15-14, 9-8 Missouri Valley Conference). Jeremy Morgan scored 15 and Marvin Singleton had eight. The Panthers hit 49 percent from the field, 78.6 percent from the line and out-rebounded the Salukis 35-24.

Northern Iowa jumped to an early lead and led 32-25 at halftime. They went 14-8 to start the second half and Bohannon sank five 3-pointers in the period — including the final bucket of the game — to help the Panthers build an insurmountable lead.

Northern Iowa has won four of its last five games and is now tied with Missouri State and Illinois State for third in the MVC.

Evansville takes down Drake 61-48


February 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – D.J. Balentine scored 23 points and had seven assists in Evansville’s final home game as the Aces beat Drake 61-48 on Tuesday.  Blake Simmons added 13 points for Evansville (12-18, 5-12 Missouri Valley Conference) and Egidiju Mockevicius was held scoreless, but grabbed 10 rebounds. Balentine made four 3-pointers as Evansville hit 6 of 12 from deep. Evansville ended a three-game losing streak and pulled itself out of the conference cellar.

Ten players scored for Drake (14-15, 5-12) but none were in double-figures. Daddy Ugbede had seven, on 3-of-8 shooting, and Jordan Daniels made two of Drake’s four 3-pointers, in a combined 16 attempts. The Bulldogs made just 6 of 20 second-half baskets and were limited to 18 points after the break.

Evansville held the Bulldogs without a basket for nearly 11 minutes, spanning both halves, and led by double-digits for the final 10 minutes.

Former KC Chiefs QB/Hall of Famer Dawson to receive Lamar Hunt Award


February 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback and broadcaster Len Dawson will be honored with the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football at the 101 Awards gala on Saturday. The award was created in 2007 to honor the life and legacy of the Chiefs founder. It goes to an individual or group that has played a role in shaping the NFL.

Previous winners include The Foolish Club, the name taken on by the eight original AFL owners; coaches Tony Dungy and Don Shula; quarterback Roger Staubach; and Monday Night Football.

Cardinals P Garcia to seek 2nd opinion on shoulder


February 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Jaime Garcia will seek a second opinion on his surgically repaired shoulder from Dr. James Andrews before deciding his next course of action, St. Louis General Manager John Mozeliak said on Tuesday. Garcia requested the second opinion even before consulting with Cardinals team doctors.

Mozeliak didn’t go into detail about the findings of Garcia’s Monday exam, other to say that the initial results were encouraging. “Based on the MRI and overall, we feel good,” Mozeliak said. “I would like to see what the other doctor has to say and we will go from there.”
