No. 4 Wisconsin 75-No. 22 Iowa 71


January 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Ben Brust scored 19 points and Number 4 Wisconsin remained unbeaten with a 75-71 victory over Number 22 Iowa on Sunday night. Wisconsin (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) matched the best start in school history, tying the 1911 to 1912 and 1913 to 1914 teams.

The game was physical at times, and Iowa coach Fran McCaffery was hit with two technical fouls almost 8 minutes into the second half after a foul was called on Gabriel Olaseni, sending Nigel Hayes to the line. Brust hit all four free throws on the technicals for Wisconsin (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten), and Hayes made one of two on the personal foul.

That turned a 41-39 Iowa lead into 44-41 Wisconsin advantage. Hayes then scored on a drive to cap off a 12-2 run. Iowa would not lead the rest of the game. Roy Marble led the Hawkeyes (12-3, 1-1) with 27 points.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Maggie Lucas hit five 3-pointers on her way to 27 points to lead No. 15 Penn State to an 87-71 victory over No. 22 Iowa on Sunday.

Iowa was down nine when back-to-back 3-pointers by Melissa Dixon and Samantha Logic pulled the Hawkeyes within 61-58 with 9:15 remaining. The Lady Lions answered with an 11-3 run to stretch the lead to 72-61 with 6:01 to play. Lucas made two free throws, a 3-pointer and a jumper during the run.

Iowa closed the gap to 79-67 with 3:57 left. Penn State finished with an 8-4 run, with Lucas scoring six points. Dixon scored 22 points. Logic added 13 points with 12 assists to lead the Hawkeyes.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Jadda Buckley scored 29 points to help No. 14 Iowa State defeated No. 25 Oklahoma in overtime 82-75 on Sunday.

Oklahoma (10-5, 1-1) was led by Morgan Hook with 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting. Sharane Campbell added 16 points with nine rebounds and five steals. The Sooners grabbed a late lead when a Campbell steal and layup made it 69-67 with 21 seconds left.

Dream season for Chiefs ends in nightmare fashion


January 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — In many ways, it was a dream for Kansas City, going from 2-14 and the first pick in the NFL draft to 11-5 and a spot in the playoffs. Yet it ended in just about the most nightmarish way possible, a second-half collapse in Indianapolis. No wonder the Chiefs had such a hard time summarizing their season in the minutes and hours after a gut-wrenching 45-44 loss to the Colts on Saturday.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Sunday that players “had their hearts ripped out.” It was the eighth straight playoff defeat for the franchise, which still hasn’t won a playoff game since 1993. Reid promised the Chiefs would assess the season and then turn attention to next year, when they hope to finally end their playoff skid.

Bradley beats Drake 68-57 in Peoria, Il.


January 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Walt Lemon Junior scored a career-high 31 points to lead Bradley to a 68-57 win over Drake on Saturday. Lemon made 12 of 20 shots, including 3 of 5 3-pointers, as the Braves (6-9, 1-1 Missouri Valley Conference) shot 52 percent from the field. Senior Aaron Hawley, who elected not to play last season, came off the bench to lead Drake with a career-high 27 points. He made 9 of 13 shots, including 4 of 7 3’s and all five of his free throws, but the other Bulldogs shot 8 of 26.

Bradley had a 32-10 advantage on points in paint and 16-2 in second chance points. The Braves also had 14 points on fast break with the Bulldogs getting none. And although Drake had 15 turnovers, Bradley cashed in for 27 points.

Drake never led with Bradley building a 17-point lead in the first half, which ended 34-28.

Luck rallies Indy to 45-44 playoff win over Chiefs


January 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw four second-half touchdown passes and scored on a fumble recovery, leading the Indianapolis Colts from a four-TD deficit to an historic 45-44 comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in a wild-card game Saturday. It’s only the second time in playoff history a team rallied from a deficit of 28 or more points to win, according to STATS. Buffalo trailed by 32 before beating Houston 41-38 in overtime in January 1993.

Luck’s first career playoff victory sends Indianapolis (12-5) to either Denver or New England next weekend for the divisional round with four straight wins. Kansas City (11-6) finished its turnaround season with three straight losses, two to the Colts and none more stunning than Saturday’s loss.

The Chiefs took a 38-10 lead early in the third quarter, but all they could muster after that was two field goals, while Luck and the Colts began their comeback.

No. 13 Iowa State beats Texas Tech 73-62


January 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Georges Niang scored 17 points and Melvin Ejim added 16 to lead Number 13 Iowa State to a 73-62 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday, extending the Cyclones’ winning streak to a school record-tying 13 games. DeAndre Kane had 15 points for the Cyclones (13-0, 1-0) in the Big 12 opener for both teams. The win was the second in the Lubbock for Iowa State in the past eight games.

Jaye Crockett had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Dusty Hannahs added 16 points to lead Texas Tech (8-6, 0-1). The Cyclones came into the game averaging just over nine 3-pointers but managed only five against the Red Raiders. Texas Tech held Iowa State 15 points below its average.

Texas Tech tied the Cyclones at 50 on a 3-pointer by Crockett at 12:33 of the second half but the Red Raiders never took a lead.

January 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) — Tyler Flack scored 16 points to pace South Dakota in its 86-52 win over Iowa Wesleyan on Saturday. South Dakota (5-9) got 15 points from Trevor Gruis, on 7 of 8 shooting, and 12 apiece from Brandon Bos and Adam Thoseby. The Coyotes shot 51 percent from the floor, including 7 of 17 from beyond the arc, and held a 43-24 advantage on the boards. Iowa Wesleyan, a Division III school, was led by Murray Schwengels with 13.

The Coyotes scored the game’s first eight points and later in the half had a 15-4 run as they built a 47-29 halftime advantage. An 11-point run to start the second half sealed Wesleyan’s fate as the lead grew to 27 points just 3:21 after the break. South Dakota held the Tigers scoreless over the game’s final 5:28.
