DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Kansas State’s Erik Kynard successfully defended his high jump title Thursday in the NCAA outdoor track and field championships, clearing 7 feet, 8 inches. Kynard held off Indiana’s Derek Drouin in a thrilling final, though his stab at tying the collegiate record of 7-9 3/4 fell short. Boise State’s Kurt Felix won the decathlon with 8,062 points, while Tim Glover defended his title in the javelin with a throw of 268 feet. Southern Illinois’s Jeneva McCall, won the women’s hammer throw at 225-3 after finishing second last year, and TCU’s Whitney Gipson took the long jump at 22-4 1/2. Texas A&M’s Natosha Rogers won the 10,000 meters in 32 minutes, 41.63 seconds. LSU star Kimberlyn Duncan topped her own world-leading time in the 200 by qualifying for the final in 22.19.

HOUSTON (AP) — Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso homered to back Adam Wainwright, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Houston Astros 4-3 Wednesday night. Descalso’s homer came in a three-run first inning and Craig connected in the third to make it 4-1. Craig also had an RBI single in the first.

Houston starter Bud Norris (5-3) allowed seven hits and four runs with a season-high 12 strikeouts and no walks in six innings.

Jarrod Uthoff to Transfer to Iowa

Sports

June 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Wisconsin player Jarrod Uthoff says he’s transferring to Iowa even though Badgers coach Bo Ryan restricted the Hawkeyes from contacting him. Uthoff tells The Associated Press on Wednesday night that he’ll have to pay his own way next year at Iowa and will also have to sit out the 2012-13 season per NCAA transfer rules. Ryan’s decision to place what many believed were heavy restrictions on Uthoff’s list of transfer options drew national criticism. Uthoff, who is from nearby Cedar Rapids, Iowa, says he didn’t want money to be a factor in his decision. He wasn’t able to speak directly with Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery, but he says Iowa’s system will best utilize his skills. Uthoff is a 6-foot-8 forward who redshirted in 2011-12.

Marian Makes it Official, Hires Lickliter

Sports

June 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Marian University has hired Todd Lickliter as its new men’s basketball coach. The former Butler and Iowa coach replaces John Grimes, who retired after winning 566 games in 36 seasons at the NAIA school. Marian made it official during a Wednesday afternoon news conference. Lickliter is a familiar name in Indianapolis. During a six-year tenure at Butler, he led the Bulldogs to two NCAA tournament regional semifinal appearances, the 2006 NIT Season Tip-Off title and broke the school record for wins in a season twice. Following Butler’s second regional appearance in 2007, Lickliter took the job at Iowa but only won 38 games in three seasons and wound up getting fired in March 2010. Now Lickliter will coach just a few miles from Butler’s campus.

White Hopes to Answer Questions at Draft Workouts

Sports

June 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — NBA scouts say Royce White has enough talent to be selected among this year’s top draft picks. They’re just not sure how his anxiety disorder and fear of flying will affect him in the pros. White was in Indianapolis this week for the second draft workout stop on his tour, and as usual, the 6-foot-8, 270-pound forward was peppered with questions about the disorder he was diagnosed with in high school. Coaches and general managers around the league are trying to get the same answers. Nobody doubts the Iowa State star’s talent. He was the only Division I player to lead his team in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks last season. But now the Iowa State star must prove himself all over again during the interview process.
