GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) – Jack Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III Grinnell’s 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night.  Taylor made 27 of 71 3-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes.

Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis held the NCAA scoring record with 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954. In 1953, Francis had 116 against Ashland Junior College.  The previous Grinnell record was 89 by Griffin Lentsch last Nov. 19 against Principia.

Hawkeyes set for rare meaningless finale

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — When the Big Ten paired conference newcomer Nebraska with Iowa for the final game of the season, the prevailing thought was that the border state schools would quickly become heated rivals. It’s hard to maintain much intensity when one team has nothing tangible left to play for.

The free falling Hawkeyes (4-7, 2-5 Big Ten) will play in a meaningless game for the first time in 12 years on Friday when they host the 17th-ranked Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-1). Nebraska can clinch a spot in the Big Ten title game with a win. All Iowa can do is walk away with a victory that wouldn’t ease the sting of perhaps its toughest season under 14-year coach Kirk Ferentz.

Cubs designate LaHair for assignment

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs say they have designated first baseman Bryan LaHair for assignment because he and the club are pursuing an opportunity for him in Japan. An All-Star last season, LaHair batted .259 with 16 home runs and 40 RBIs in 130 games. He originally signed with the Cubs as a minor league free agent in December 2009.

The Cubs made several other moves on Tuesday, acquiring right-handed pitching prospect Barret Loux and a player to be named from the Texas Rangers for right-hander Jake Brigham. They also assigned right-hander Carlos Gutierrez outright toTriple-A Iowa after he cleared waivers and selected the contracts of four players — right-hander Trey McNutt from Double-A Tennessee, infielder Christian Villanueva from Class-A Daytona, infielder Logan Watkins from Tennessee and right-hander Robert Whitenack from Daytona.

Melsahn Basabe added 11 points, eight of them after halftime, for the Hawkeyes, who shot 47 percent from the floor and improved to 5-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season. Iowa, which never trailed, also moved to 18-0 over the past three seasons when holding its opponent to 60 points or fewer.

T.J. Price scored 16 points and Jamal Crook had 14 for the Hilltoppers (2-2), and Brandon Harris pulled down 10 rebounds. Western Kentucky shot just 33 percent from the field, including 5 of 21 on 3-point attempts.

Coaches: Big Ten’s big footprint a plus

Sports

November 20th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Big Ten football coaches say they will have little influence on scheduling and divisional alignments once Maryland and Rutgers join the conference. Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said Tuesday that when Nebraska joined the conference he wasted a couple of days drawing up his ideal plan but had no input. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said conference leadership has handled past expansion well and believes adding Maryland and Rutgers will pay off.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said that with the money the conference believes expansion will generate he’d like to see players in some way get a share.

K.C. area prep picks Cyclones

Sports

November 20th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Kansas City-area prep point guard Clayton Custer says he plans to play for Iowa State. Custer is 6-foot-1 and hails from Overland Park, Kan. He was a first-team, Class 6A all-state pick as a sophomore for Blue Valley Northwest High last year and has two years of high school ball remaining.

Custer averaged 19 points and eight assists a game. He cited his relationships with coach Fred Hoiberg, assistant T.J. Otzelberger and the Cyclones players as critical in giving his verbal commitment to Iowa State. Custer is Iowa State’s first recruit in the class of 2014. He picked Iowa State over Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and others.
