March 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Sam Brincks scored 24 points and Carroll Kuemper used a big rebounding advantage to post a 61-54 victory over Fourth ranked Nodaway Valley in a class 2A quarterfinal round game. Kuemper took the lead for good by outscoring the Wolverines 21-11 in the third quarter and then held off a fourth quarter rally to avenge a 64-60 loss to Nodaway Valley in their regular season finale. The Knights owned a 37-27 rebounding advantage in part due to foul trouble to Nodaway Valley center Alex Welsch. The six-foot, seven senior still finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Nodaway Valley ends the season with a record of 23-2.

Chiefs make sweeping move to keep 3 on roster

Sports

March 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Kansas City Chiefs retained three significant free agents Monday, signing punter Dustin Colquitt to a five-year deal, placing the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert and reportedly agreeing to a long-term contract with wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs had until Monday afternoon to decide whether to place the franchise tag on one of their pending free agents. They did it with Albert, who will make $9,828,000 next season. The decision was made easier by reaching long-term deals with Bowe and Colquitt.

Bowe was the recipient of the franchise tag last year, and despite poor quarterback play and some nagging injuries, still managed to catch 59 passes for 801 yards and three touchdowns. Colquitt earned a trip to the Pro Bowl as the Chiefs’ punter this season.

Lynn struggles with slider as Cards lose to Twins

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Lance Lynn allowed four hits in a three-run first inning and Jason Motte gave up a two-run homer in his second straight outing as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Minnesota Twins 7-0 Monday. Working on his slider instead of throwing fastballs and trying to induce fly balls into the wind, Lynn gave up three runs — two earned — and five hits in 2 1-3 innings.

Aaron Hicks and Brian Dozier started with singles, and Trevor Plouffe hit a sacrifice fly. Singles by Chris Parmalee and Joe Benson brought in another run, and Lynn threw wildly on Wilkin Ramirez’s grounder for an error that allowed the third run in.

Illinois faces Iowa team looking to build resume

Sports

March 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — During any other season, an early March matchup between the Big Ten’s sixth- and eighth-place teams might mean little. But not this season. When sixth-place Illinois (21-9, 8-8 Big Ten) heads to Iowa (18-11, 7-9), both know they could make it to the NCAA Tournament.

Illinois coach John Groce said Monday that Iowa will be a contrast to Illinois’ last opponent. The Hawkeyes can play 10 players, while Nebraska played just seven last Saturday at Illinois. The Illini won that game only after coming from behind after the Cornhuskers ran out of steam.

Groce said he hopes three of his younger players can build on strong games against Nebraska. Point guard Tracy Abrams, center Nnanna Egwu and forward Myke Henry were all key pieces in Illinois’ win.
