Chiefs’ training camp to Missouri Western for 3 more years

Sports

January 16th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs will continue to spend training camp on the campus of Missouri Western after the school’s board of governors approved a three-year contract extension Friday. The decision will keep the Chiefs heading north of Kansas City through 2017. Their agreement also includes two extensions of one-year each at the option of the Chiefs and the school.

The Chiefs used to hold training camp in Wisconsin in part because of the cooler late summer weather. But they moved closer to home in 2010, striking a deal with the Division II school in St. Joseph that included help with major facility upgrades.

The location also makes it possible for more fans to attend workouts. This past season, the local visitor’s bureau estimated 40,000 fans attended the practices.

January 15th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Pitcher Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a $22 million, three-year contract. Lynn gets $7 million this year and $7.5 million in each of the following two seasons.  He can make $500,000 in performance bonuses based on starts in 2016 and $1 million in 2017: $125,000 each for 25, 27, 29 and 31 in 2016 and $250,000 for each of those levels the following year.

Lynn made $535,000 last season, when he was 15-10 with a 2.74 ERA in 33 starts. The agreement was reached Thursday, two days after Lynn filed for arbitration.

Loyola of Chicago outlasts Drake 50-47

Sports

January 15th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Christian Thomas scored 16 points to lead Loyola of Chicago to a 50-47 win over Drake Wednesday night. Devon Turk had 12 points and Milton Doyle finished with seven assists for the Ramblers (13-4, 3-2 Missouri Valley). Thomas finished 7-of-11 shooting and Loyola made 21 of 41 from the field (51.2 percent), as Drake shot a mere 38.3 percent from the field.

Gary Ricks Junior finished with 24 points, including seven 3-pointers for the Bulldogs (3-14, 0-5). Drake out-rebounded the Ramblers 28-24. After Jacob Enevold Jensen’s layup gave Drake the one-point advantage with 4:24 to go, Christian Thomas and Milton Doyle connected on consecutive jumpers to put the Ramblers up 48-45 at the 2:29 mark.

A jumper by Jordan Daniels about 30 seconds later cut Drake’s deficit to one, but Thomas converted a layup with 1:32 left and Loyola held on. Ricks missed a potential tying 3 with 2 seconds left.

No. 22 Baylor needs late jumper to beat No. 11 Iowa State

WACO, Texas (AP) — Kenny Chery made a jumper with 4.7 seconds left and No. 22 Baylor pulled out a 74-73 win over Number 11 Iowa State after blowing a 14-point lead. Rico Gathers had 14 points and 15 rebounds for the Bears (13-3, 2-2 Big 12), who had led throughout until Georges Niang made a jumper with 1:54 left in the game for a 68-67 lead.

Lester Medford hit a 3-pointer from the right corner with just over a minute left, but Iowa State (12-3, 2-1) got even on Niang’s high bank shot. Johnathan Motley had a go-ahead putback on a miss by Chery before the Cyclones went back ahead on a 3-pointer by Bryce Dejean-Jones.

Iowa State called timeout after Chery’s last basket, but Niang missed a runner as time expired. Niang scored 10 points, nine over the final 8½-minute stretch to erase Baylor’s 62-48 lead.
