ISU’s Leonard Johnson Signs with Tampa Bay


May 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Former Iowa State cornerback Leonard Johnson has signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Johnson started 44 games for the Cyclones and had 247 tackles and six interceptions. Many thought he’d be selected in last week’s NFL Draft, but Johnson was passed over.  Iowa State says former offensive lineman Hayworth Hicks has also signed a free agent deal.  Hicks will go to training camp with the Indianapolis Colts in hopes of landing a roster spot.

Illinois Adding Former Drake Guard Rayvonte Rice


May 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Illinois basketball coach John Groce says sophomore guard and Champaign native Rayvonte Rice will transfer to Illinois from Drake at the end of the semester. Rice led Drake with 16.8 points a game last season and averaged 5.8 rebounds. Under NCAA rules for transfers he will have to sit out next season. Groce called Rice an impact player and a natural scorer. The first-year Illinois coach also praised Rice’s aggressiveness for the Bulldogs (18-6, 9-9 Missouri Valley). While Rice won’t be able to help for a year, the Illini lacked shooters and ball-handlers during the 17-15 season that cost Bruce Weber his job and brought Groce from Ohio. Illinois this week also added another guard. Mike LaTulip of Prospect High School in Mt. Prospect will be a preferred walk-on.

Wainwright Wins 1st, Cardinals Beat Pirates 10-7


May 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Adam Wainwright worked seven solid innings for his first win since September 2010, and the St. Louis Cardinals got big nights at the plate from David Freese and Matt Holliday to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-7 on Tuesday. Freese’s sixth home run and third in five games was a tiebreaking, three-run shot off Charlie Morton (1-2) in the fifth. Holliday homered in the sixth off Jared Hughes to cap a three-hit night with two RBIs.  Allen Craig had two hits and an RBI in his season debut after rehabbing from knee surgery performed last fall shortly after he belted three homers in the World Series. Rafael Furcal had two hits, including his first homer, a two-run shot off Tony Watson in the seventh that made it 10-4.

The Cards and the Pirates face-off again tonight (Wednesday). You can catch the action beginning with the pre-game show at 6:20-p.m., on KJAN.

Cardinals to Retire La Russa’s No. 10


May 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals are wasting no time honoring Tony La Russa, announcing they will retire their former manager’s No. 10 later this month. La Russa retired last fall after leading the franchise to a second World Series title in his 16 seasons. He left the game ranked third all time in managerial victories, trailing Connie Mack and John McGraw. The jersey will be retired May 11 prior to the Cardinals’ game against the Atlanta Braves. La Russa’s number will become the 12th retired by the Cardinals and first since Whitey Herzog’s No. 24 in 2010, and they’re the only managers who did not play for the team to have their uniform numbers retired.

New Design for CyHawk Trophy Wins Online Vote


May 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The new trophy for the winner of the Iowa-Iowa State football game will depict the team’s mascots after a public vote. Fans had been asked to submit ideas for a new trophy after the original — which depicted a farm family huddled around a bushel of corn — was derided locally and nationally after being unveiled last summer. The Iowa Corn Growers Association, which sponsors the rivalry, worked with a local design firm to come up with six concepts. A 10-person panel with ties to the two schools selected three finalists to be put to an online vote that ended late Monday. The winning design finished with 8,002 votes, while the other two designs combined for just 2,280.

Iowa State Duals Tourney to Keep New Date in 2013


May 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Iowa High School Athletic Association says the state duals wrestling tournament will again be held the day before the start of the individual tournament in 2013.  The state duals used to be held after the individual tournament in Cedar Rapids. But the duals were moved to Des Moines and up by one week this past winter.  Assistant executive director Alan Beste tells the Des Moines Register that the duals meet needs to be part of the popular state individuals meet if it’s to become a marquee event.  The state duals drew a record crowd of more than 7,400 in February. But some schools chose to rest their top wrestlers so they’d be fresh for their matches in the individual tournament.
