Iowa State thumps Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 80-50


November 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — DeAndre Kane led five players in double figures with 15 points and Iowa State rolled past Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 80-50 on Tuesday night. Dustin Hogue and Matt Thomas each had 13 for the Cyclones (2-0), who overcame a somewhat sluggish start with an 18-2 run to start the second half.

Georges Niang, who added 12 points and five assists, put the Cyclones ahead by 20 with a jumper. Thomas’s layup with 14:44 left made it 50-28 Iowa State. Monte Morris converted a four-point play with 8:20 left to give the Cyclones a 30-point lead. Morris finished with 11 points for Iowa State, which faces its first major test of the season at home against No. 7 Michigan on Sunday.

Jeff Beverly had 14 points for the Islanders (1-1).

Drake Overwhelms Iowa Wesleyan in 104-49 Rout


November 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Blake Danielak, in just his second college basketball game, scored 18 points to pace Drake in a 104-49 win over Iowa Wesleyan on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs (2-0) used a 16-2 run midway through the first half to open up a 31-9 lead and never looked back. They took a 53-22 advantage into halftime.

Danielak shot 7 of 10 from the field, including 4 of 7 from behind the 3-point line. He added six rebounds and four assists in just 20 minutes of action. Drake made 39 of 61 (63.9 percent) field goals and dished out 25 assists as a team. The Bulldogs committed just five turnovers and outscored the Tigers 30-6 in the paint.

Dion Lightner was the lone Iowa Wesleyan player in double figures, finishing with 10 points. The game served as an exhibition for the Tigers, who will open their regular season on Saturday night.

Chiefs WR Bowe arrested for pot, speeding


November 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) – Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been arrested outside Kansas City for speeding and possessing marijuana. Police in suburban Riverside say Bowe was pulled over for speeding late Sunday and that an officer smelled marijuana in the car. The officer found a bag holding Bowe’s wallet and two small containers of what the officer suspected was marijuana.

Police say Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance. He posted $750 bond and is scheduled to appear in Riverside court on Dec. 18.  Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews says the team is aware of the situation, is gathering information and has no further comment.

The Chiefs are off Tuesday before resuming preparations for a pivotal AFC West showdown at Denver on Sunday night.

Chiefs back to work as Broncos showdown awaits


November 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs got back to work Monday after their bye as they began practicing for an AFC West showdown against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. Not only did everyone practice at the Chiefs’ training facility, they also welcomed back rookie safety Sanders Commings from injured reserve. That means the 9-0 Chiefs are full strength for the first time in weeks heading into their biggest game of the season. That’s hardly the case for the 8-1 Broncos.

A person with knowledge of the results says Peyton Manning’s MRI showed aggravation of his right ankle that is not expected to keep the Broncos quarterback out of next Sunday’s game against Kansas City. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t addressed the issue. Interim coach Jack Del Rio meets with the media Monday afternoon. While Manning was throwing the final pass in a 28-20 win over the Chargers, San Diego lineman Corey Liuget hit the quarterback around the ankles. Manning was noticeably limping as he finished the game.

He had an MRI on Monday morning. Manning originally hurt both ankles last month. The Denver Post had first reported the results of the MRI.

Northern Iowa stakes 86-52 victory over Coe


November 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Chip Rank scored 18 points to lead UNI to an 86-52 blowout over Coe College on Monday night. Rank set the pace with three 3-pointers in the first half. But the game remained close until 8:06 in the first half, when Northern Iowa (1-1) pulled away on a 12-0 burst to go ahead 34-21. Marvin Singleton had 13 rebounds off the bench for the Panthers.

J.T. Vonderhaar was the leading scorer for Coe (0-1) with 10 points. UNI has the longest active win streak in the Missouri Valley Conference with five consecutive 20-win seasons.

Rohach still No. 1 at QB for ISU


November 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Grant Rohach will remain Iowa State’s starting quarterback despite a shaky debut and probably will keep the job the rest of the season. Rohach made his first start in the Cyclones’ 21-17 loss to TCU last Saturday and played better in the second half after struggling early. He’s healthier at this point than previous starter Sam Richardson, so he’ll take the first snap again in next Saturday’s game at No. 22 Oklahoma.

Richardson has been slowed by an assortment of injuries and now has a sore thumb that hampers his passing. But he’s a better runner than Rohach, and coach Paul Rhoads alternated the two quarterbacks against TCU. Rhoads says he hasn’t decided if he’ll use the same rotation this week, but Rohach said he expects it to continue.

ISU’s Christofferson Awarded Season’s First Player of the Week Honors


November 11th, 2013 by Jim Field

IRVING, Texas – Iowa State senior forward Hallie Christofferson was named this season’s first Big 12 Player of the Week, the league announced today. This is her second-career weekly honor, as she garnered Freshman of the Week honors in 2010.

Christofferson tallied a career-high 32 points and 11 rebounds in Iowa State’s 84-55 win over North Dakota. Her 32 points is tied for the 10th-most scored in ISU history. It also marked her 12th-career double-double. Christofferson was one of 10 Big 12 players to record a double-double in the first week of play (including teammate Kidd Blaskowsky), and her 32 points led all Big 12 scorers.

Christofferson went 11-for-18 from the field at a .611 clip, tying a career high in field goals made and setting a career-high with 18 field goal attempts. She also went 7-of-8 (.875) from the free-throw line.

Christofferson and the No. 20/22 Iowa State Cyclones return to the court on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to take on the South Dakota Lady Coyotes in their second game of the season.

ISU’s Kane, Long Take Home Weekly Big 12 Honors


November 11th, 2013 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State guards Naz Long and DeAndre Kane earned Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Newcomer of the Week awards for their performances in Sunday’s season opening win against UNC Wilmington. Kane shared the newcomer of the week honor with Oklahoma’s Ryan Spangler.

In his first career start, Long posted a career-best 26 points (previous high was seven) with two rebounds and two assists in the Cyclones’ 95-62 win over UNCW. The sophomore guard was 9-of-12 (.750) from the field, including 8-of-11 (.727) from 3-point range. The eight 3-pointers ties for the third-most in school history. During his freshman campaign last year, Long scored a total of 25 points and made five 3-pointers for the entire season.

Kane narrowly missed a triple-double in his debut with the Cyclones despite playing just 25 minutes. The senior guard finished with 13 points, a career-high tying 11 rebounds and seven assists in the ISU victory. He had just one turnover and finished 4-of-6 (.667) from the field while making all five attempts from the free throw line.

Iowa State returns to action Tuesday when it hosts Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m.
