Kozma and Descalso homer, Cardinals beat Yankees


March 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso each homered and the St. Louis Cardinals, set to play the whole season without All-Star shortstop Rafael Furcal, beat the New York Yankees 7-6 Thursday. Hours earlier, the Cardinals said Furcal will undergo ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow and expects to miss the year. Kozma, Furcal’s likely replacement, hit a solo home run in the fifth inning and also singled. Descalso, who could also see time at short, hit a two-run homer in the seventh. The Cardinals were without outfielder Matt Holliday, who had a stomach virus. Yankees starter Ivan Nova allowed one run in three innings. St. Louis scored three times in the ninth. Kolton Wong hit a tying, two-run homer and a pair of errors set up Adron Chambers’ winning single.

Drake beats Bradley 81-66 in MVC tournament


March 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chris Hines scored 16 points and Drake defeated Bradley 81-66 Thursday in the opener of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. The ninth-seeded Bulldogs (15-16) earned a quarterfinal game against regular-season champion Creighton on Friday. Joey King scored 15 and Gary Ricks added 14 points for Drake. The Bulldogs led by as many as 17 points in the first half, though the Braves scored the last eight of the half to cut Drake’s lead at the break to 41-32.

Bradley (16-16) got within three with 6½ minutes left, but Drake went on a 13-0 run to put it out of reach in St. Louis, Missouri. Jake Eastman had 15 points and eight rebounds for the eighth-seeded Braves. Will Egolf also scored 15 points, Walt Lemon Jr. scored 14 and Tyshon Pickett added 11 for Bradley, which improved nine games from last season’s 7-25 finish.

Ferentz’s future son-in-law to get new supervisor


March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa says an administrative assistant who is the future son-in-law of Coach Kirk Ferentz will no longer report to the football program to avoid nepotism concerns. Athletic director Gary Barta said Thursday that Tyler Barnes would now be supervised by Rick Klatt, who oversees the department’s marketing and media relations. He said Barnes had been a model employee, but the change in supervision was necessary because Barnes is planning to marry Ferentz’s 25-year-old daughter in July.

The announcement comes after The Gazette reported Ferentz didn’t disclose the relationship earlier to Barta. University records show that Ferentz last fall sought and received permission to extend Barnes’ temporary position for a second year through Jan. 2014. Barta says a university review will determine Barnes’ “long-term employment options.”

Big 12 announces 5 weekday football games for ’13


March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Texas and Texas Tech will each play another Thursday game before their Thanksgiving night matchup in Austin this fall. The Big 12 on Thursday announced its lineup of five weekday football games, including another holiday game at home for the Longhorns. Before that, Texas Tech will host its Big 12 opener against TCU on Thursday night, Sept. 12. Texas plays at Iowa State on Oct. 3. Oklahoma travels to Baylor on Nov. 7, one of the Bears’ last home games before moving into a new stadium.

The weekday games fulfill a Big 12 contractual agreement with television partners Fox Sports and ESPN. Kansas State hosts North Dakota State for a Labor Day weekend opener on Friday, Aug. 30. Kickoff times and specific networks for each game will be announced later.

Iowa women defeat Northwestern 60-55


March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) — Morgan Johnson and Jamie Printy scored 18 points apiece and Iowa defeated Northwestern 60-55 on Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten women’s tournament. Bethany Doolittle added 10 points and Samantha Logic grabbed 11 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (20-11), the seventh seed in the tournament. They advance to meet No. 21 Nebraska, the Big Ten’s second seed, in Friday’s quarterfinals.

Iowa never trailed in the game. It was 30-26 at halftime and the Hawkeyes led 57-42 with 3 minutes to go before the Wildcats battled back to make it close. Kendall Hackney led Northwestern (13-17), the No. 10 seed, with 13 points and four steals. Karly Roser scored 11 points, Alex Cohen scored 10 and Dannielle Diamant had a game-high 13 rebounds.

The teams also played on Sunday in Evanston, Ill., with Iowa winning 62-45.

Iowa to review job of Ferentz’s future son-in-law


March 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The University of Iowa athletics department is considering whether to move the future son-in-law of Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz out of the football program.  University spokesman Mark Braun said Thursday that Athletics Director Gary Barta is reviewing the employment of Tyler Barnes and would take appropriate action.

Braun said a report in The Gazette about Barnes’ hiring as administrative assistant for football raises questions about whether the school followed its policy on nepotism. He said Barnes and Ferentz have a relationship and the question now is how to handle it.

Barnes was hired without a search last year, and his temporary position was recently extended for a second year through January 2014. Barnes had previously worked in the athletics department. He got engaged last year to Ferentz’s 25-year-old daughter.
