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.

Astros get to Garcia early in 9-8 win over Cards

June 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Maxwell hit a two-run homer, Jose Altuve tied a career high with four hits and the Houston Astros got to St. Louis starter Jaime Garcia early before holding on for a 9-8 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday night. The Astros scored four runs in the first inning and Maxwell’s homer in the second stretched their lead to 6-1. Brian Bogusevic added a solo home run in the fourth and Chris Snyder drove in two runs for Houston. Garcia (3-4) yielded five hits and the six runs tied his season high, set against the Astros earlier this season. The loss drops the left-hander to 0-5 in seven career starts against Houston. He has allowed at least three runs in each of those starts. Houston starter Lucas Harrell (5-4) allowed eight hits and four runs — three earned — in six innings to improve to 4-0 in five home starts this season.

Marian to hire former Butler coach Todd Lickliter

Sports

June 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Butler and Iowa coach Todd Lickliter is returning to his Indianapolis roots. Marian University, an NAIA school located just a few miles from the Butler campus, has called a Wednesday afternoon news conference to announce that it has hired Lickliter, a person with knowledge of the hire told The Associated Press. The person requested anonymity because the announcement hasn’t happened. Lickliter enjoyed his greatest basketball success in Indy, leading Butler to the NCAA tournament’s regional semifinals in 2003 and 2007 and was chosen the 2006-07 national coach of the year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He went 38-57 over the next three seasons at Iowa, a tenure that included health problems. He sat out 2010-11, then returned last season as an assistant at Miami (Ohio).

Florida looks for 1st national outdoor title

Sports

June 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Florida men’s track and field team has seemingly accomplished everything but a national outdoor title. The star-crossed Gators have finished in second place four times since 2004, and last season they wound up third after losing in the final race of the meet. But Florida has three straight indoor national titles to its credit and is once again among the favorites to win this year’s meet, which starts Wednesday at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa. Texas A&M’s men and women have won the last three national outdoor titles, but most expect that streak of pulling off double titles to end in 2012. The Aggie men appear to stack up equally with Florida State and Florida, which can’t afford to focus on their past inability to break through at the outdoor meet like they have indoors. Texas A&M’s women’s team is expected to finish behind Oregon, LSU and Kansas.
