ISU’s Christofferson Added To Wade Trophy Midseason List

Sports

February 10th, 2014 by Jim Field

ATLANTA – Iowa State women’s basketball senior Hallie Christofferson has been added to the Wade Trophy list, the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), on behalf of the Wade Trophy Coalition, announced today.

Christofferson is one of 35 collegiate women’s basketball players named to the prestigious Wade Trophy list. Christofferson was also one of 10 additions to the midseason list. This season, the senior is averaging 18.7 points per contest, which ranks second in the Big 12, and 7.4 rebounds.

Christofferson recently became just the eighth player in Cyclone history to reach 1,500 career points and sits eighth in Iowa State history with 1,568 points. Christofferson is a two-time Academic All- Big 12 honoree and was also named an ISU Scholar Athlete last season.

The Wade Trophy Coalition presents The Wade Trophy to the nation’s most outstanding NCAA Division I women’s basketball player each year – one who not only excels athletically but also serves as a positive role model both on and off the court.

ISU’s Ejim Earns Big 12 Player of Week Honor

Sports

February 10th, 2014 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State senior forward Melvin Ejim’s 48-point, 18-rebound performance against TCU was one of the top performances in the history of the Big 12 Conference and on Monday he was recognized as the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week. It is his second honor of the season.

 

 

Ejim’s 48 points were a Big 12 record and his 18 rebounds a career high. He also broke the Big 12 record for field goals, making 20-of-24 attempts. The 48 points was also an ISU record for a regulation game and the second-most points ever scored in a game (LaFester Rhodes, 54 vs. Iowa).

 

 

Ejim, who is leading the Big 12 in scoring with 19.8 points per game, scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds earlier in the week in ISU’s thrilling triple-OT win at Oklahoma State. That win snapped an 18-game losing streak in Stillwater that dated back to 1988.

 

 

Kansas State’s Marcus Foster was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.

 

 

Ejim and the Cyclones are back in action tonight at West Virginia at 6 p.m. (CT).

DNR urging snowmobilers to stay on designated trails

February 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The death of a 13-year-old boy in a snowmobile accident in northwest Iowa is bringing attention to off-road vehicle safety. The teenager, Raymond Gatzemeyer of Fonda, died last Wednesday when he hit a rope suspended between the pillars of a bridge. David Downing, with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, says such dangers are common when crossing someone’s property. “Often during the year those landowners make changes to the property, they may put up a cable between a gate, they may have a suspension wire coming down off a corner post, and those types of hazards are unmarked,” Downing says.

There are plenty of places to ride in Iowa that are safe, according to Downing. “We have more than 8,000 miles of designated snowmobile trails in the state,” Downing says, “and those trails are groomed and they’re marked so you know where the hazards are. That’s why we always recommend that folks stay on those trails.” At the time of the accident, Gatzemeyer was with three other people, two who were on snowmobiles and one who was operating an ATV. They were not injured. It’s unclear why there was a rope attached to the bridge pillars. Gatzemeyer was wearing a helmet. Downing made his comments on Iowa Public Radio’s “River to River” program.

February 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Khristian Smith scored 19 points, including a dunk and free throw to give Indiana State a five-point lead with 1:13 left, as the Sycamores held on to beat Drake 60-56 on Sunday. Drake’s Karl Madison made a layup with 58 seconds left to pull the Bulldogs within three and had a chance to tie the game at 59 with 5 seconds left, but Aaron Hawley’s shot was off the mark. Smith then made one of two free throws with 3 seconds left to secure the win.

Manny Arop had 13, on 5-of-13 shooting, for Indiana State (18-6, 9-3 Missouri Valley Conference). Trevor Berkeley scored 12 points, including three 3-pointers, for Drake (12-12, 3-9), while Hawley added 11 and Richard Carter 10.

Indiana State took a 54-46 lead with 4:42 left before back-to-back 3-pointers by Carter and Hawley pulled Drake within 54-52 with 2:33 remaining.

No. 4 Wichita St (25-0) beats Northern Iowa 82-73

Sports

February 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Tekele Cotton scored 18 points and fourth-ranked Wichita State beat Northern Iowa 82-73 on Saturday night, clearing perhaps its toughest remaining hurdle for an unbeaten regular season. Cleanthony Early had all 16 of his points in the first half for the Shockers (25-0, 12-0 Missouri Valley Conference). They became the first team to open 25-0 since Derrick Rose helped Memphis win its first 26 games in 2007-08.

Northern Iowa got as close as 44-43 before Wichita State went on a 12-1 run early in the second half. The Panthers pulled back within single digits before Fred VanVleet’s 3-pointer made it 69-57 with just more than 5 minutes left. Matt Bohannon had 17 points and Seth Tuttle scored 16 for the Panthers (11-13, 5-7), who were outrebounded 40-24.
