MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Asya Bussie scored 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Number 20 West Virginia to a 67-56 win over Number 23 Iowa State on Wednesday. The Mountaineers (18-3, 7-2 Big 12), who won by 14 at Iowa State two weeks ago, held the Cyclones (15-5, 4-5) to 28 percent shooting. Bria Holmes had 16 points for West Virginia with Averee Fields adding 12 and Christal Caldwell 11. Hallie Christofferson had 20 for ISU.

After Iowa State pulled within 22-19 with 7:33 left in the first half before Holmes knocked down 3-pointers on consecutive possessions. Nikki Moody made two free throws at 4:14 for Iowa State to make it 28-21 but the Mountaineers then closed the half on a 14-0 run.

Bussie had seven points and Holmes another 3 during the surge for a 42-21 lead. The lead never dipped below eight in the second half.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Richard Carter scored 23 points and Jordan Daniels added 22 as Drake’s second half comeback topped Missouri State 84-74 on Wednesday. Drake (12-9, 3-6 Missouri Valley) raced to a 13-4 lead, fueled by a pair of 3-pointers by Chris Caird. Missouri State (14-7, 4-5) came back to go up 30-29 with 3:13 in the first, but Drake countered to lead 38-35 at the break.

Missouri State went up five on Gavin Thurman’s jumper with 7:21 left in the game. Drake coach Ray Giacoletti immediately called time, and his Bulldogs scored 15 of the next 17 points to wrest control of the game. Drake shot 52 percent from the floor, including 14 of 24 from beyond the arc. Daniels had five 3-pointers, and Caird added 18 points, hitting 6 of 8 3-point attempts.

Austin Ruder led Missouri State with 20 points. Ron Mvouika added 13 points while Jarmar Gulley had 12.

Northern Iowa beats Evansville 95-81

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Deon Mitchell scored 20 points with six assists and grabbed six rebounds as Northern Iowa posted a 95-81 victory over Evansville Wednesday night. Seth Tuttle also had 20 points for the Panthers (11-10, 5-4 Missouri Valley Conference). Matt Bohannon scored 19 and Wes Washpun had 11.

D.J. Balentine nearly doubled his season average with a career-high 43 points for the Aces (10-12, 3-6), outperforming the rest of the Evansville team combined. He was 10 of 19 from the field, 19 of 21 from the line, and sank four from beyond the arc during the contest.

But Balentine’s stellar performance could not compensate for a lackluster showing from the remainder of the Evansville team. The Panthers had a 54-43 lead at the break and never looked back, extending their advantage in the second period to 22 points, 90-68, on a Mitchell 3-pointer with 7:05 remaining.

U. Iowa fires worker after shortage

January 29th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The University of Iowa has fired an athletics department accountant after auditors projected that $66,000 is missing from ticket sales for a popular train that takes fans to Kinnick Stadium.  Spokesman Tom Moore tells The Associated Press that 31-year employee Kathleen Willier was fired Nov. 6 for failing to follow cash handling procedures.

The firing came after auditors found that the university failed to make deposits for two 2011 football games for ticket sales to the Hawkeye Express, which transports fans from Coralville to the stadium.  An audit report said revenue for 2011 unexpectedly dropped by $66,000 even though ridership slightly increased, and that management can’t explain why.

Willier’s husband, Charlie, said Wednesday his wife disputes that any cash was missing and believes she is a scapegoat for longstanding problems.

January 29th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

UNI basketball coach Ben Jacobson says just a handful of plays have kept his team from challenging for the top of the standings in the Missouri Valley Conference, and he’s hoping the Panthers start making more of those plays as they open their second round through the league. Jacobson says he’s been emphasizing the importance of making what he calls “the hard plays.”

The Panthers host Evansville tonight. UNI got its only road win of the season when the Panthers beat the Purple Aces 80-53 three weeks ago. The Panthers and the Purple Aces will tip off at 7:00 tonight in the McLeod Center.
