December 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Melissa Dixon scored seven of her game-high 27 points in the final 1:22 as No. 25 Iowa came back to defeat 22nd-ranked and previously unbeaten Syracuse 97-91 in the Big Ten/ACC challenge Thursday night. Dixon hit all 27 points — on 7 of 11 3-pointers — after halftime as Iowa (9-1) clawed back from a 47-37 gap.

Bethany Doolittle scored a career-high 25 for the Hawkeyes, Samantha Logic added 14 and Kali Peschel 10 with eight rebounds. The Hawkeyes hadn’t led since 12:06 of the first half when a Dixon 3 brought them to 71-69, and then Peschel grabbed a defensive rebound and scored for a 72-71 lead.

Syracuse (8-1) was led by 25 points on 10-for-13 shooting from Brittney Sykes, who also hauled down 10 boards. Sykes scored 10 of her points in the final 7:14 as she and Iowa’s Dixon and Logic traded baskets and the lead.

Chiefs revolving O-line finally hits stride

Sports

December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Branden Albert is hurt, so is Jon Asamoah, and the No. 1 overall pick in last April’s draft has gone through a painful series of growing pains this season. It’s been a tough time to be a member of the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line.

Yet despite all the shuffling caused by a spate of injuries, the front five has played perhaps its best football of the season the last three weeks, which just so happen to have coincided with the offense’s best performances of the season — and a frustrating three-game losing streak.

Offensive guard Jeff Allen said the line is simply getting comfortable with coach Andy Reid’s offense. Finally, after 12 weeks of regular-season games.

ISU player’s appeal to Regents denied

Sports

December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

It appears the Iowa Board of Regents has rejected former Iowa State University basketball player, Bubu Palo’s, appeal to rejoin the team. Palo was temporarily suspended, but then returned last season after a sexual assault charge against him was dropped. An unidentified complainant challenged that reinstatement, and I-S-U President Steven Leath made the decision to dismiss Palo for a violation of I-S-U’s Student Code of Conduct. Regents president, Bruce Rastetter, says the Board agrees with President Leath in a case involving a student’s appeal.

“I think the board reviewed the university’s decision and felt the same and we confirmed President Leath and the university’s decision,” Rastetter says. Rastetter says privacy laws prevent him from confirming that Palo was the subject of the vote, but the former athlete said he expected the Regents to hear his case Wednesday. Regents attorney Tom Evans says when a student loses an appeal before the Regents, they have a limited time to appeal to district court.

“Typically it’s 30 days. We’ll follow up and notify the student’s legal counsel and the legal counsel can notify the student,” Evans says.

No. 20 Iowa St. has no problem with N. Iowa 83-55

Sports

December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hallie Christofferson, Nikki Moody and Seanna Johnson had big games as No. 20 Iowa State cruised by Northern Iowa 83-55 Wednesday night. Christofferson led in scoring with 22 points, hitting 8 of 10 free throws. Moody added 16 points and eight assists. Johnson had 14 points and 13 rebounds as the Cyclones (8-0), off to their best start in 11 seasons, out-rebounded Northern Iowa 49-30. The Panthers (2-7), held to 36 percent shooting, were led by Madison Weekly with 16 points.

Erin Dohnalek’s 3-pointer pulled Northern Iowa into a 14-14 tie before the Cyclones reeled off 16 straight points. Late in the first half, Iowa State went on a 12-2 run before six quick points from the Panthers made it 43-26 at the half.

ISU dominated the inside, out-scoring the Panthers 42-16 in the paint and 16-4 in second-chance points. UNI had 18 turnovers good for 24 Cyclone points.

Dropped passes an epidemic for stumbling Chief

Sports

December 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It was almost like adding injury to insult when Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano banged his head off the turf so hard that he sustained a concussion after dropping a pass. He wasn’t the only one who let the ball slip through his fingers last Sunday.

The Chiefs have finally started to put up some offense the last three weeks, but bobbled balls and drops have kept them from putting even more points on the board — maybe even avoiding becoming the first team to start 9-0 and then lose three straight games.

As the Chiefs head to Washington on Sunday, coach Andy Reid said everyone has to do a better job of making plays when they’re put in the position to do so.
