No. 24 Nebraska women defeat Iowa 66-46


February 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Rachel Theriot scored 19 points and No. 24 Nebraska won its ninth game in a row, defeating Iowa 66-46 on Sunday.  Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore scored 10 points apiece and Moore had eight assists for the Cornhuskers (21-6, 11-3 Big Ten), who kept their hopes alive of sharing the conference championship.

Nebraska’s last two conference games are at Wisconsin on Thursday and at home next Sunday against No. 7 Penn State, which owns at least a share of the Big Ten title.  Samantha Logic led the Hawkeyes (17-11, 6-8) with 12 points. She scored the game’s first basket, but that was Iowa’s only lead and the Huskers went on to lead 29-20 at halftime.
Iowa, which has lost six of its last seven, fell to 7-2 against ranked teams this season. The Hawkeyes’ other loss in that category was to Penn State.

Lester perfect for Red Sox in win over Cardinals


February 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – Jon Lester pitched two scoreless innings in his first start of spring training, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.  Lester retired all six batters he faced, striking out one. He needed 24 pitches – 17 strikes – to get through the two innings, six in the second inning. All but one of Lester’s pitches were fastballs.

Rafael Furcal was the designated hitter for St. Louis. He went 0 for 2 as he is working to return from a strained ligament in his throwing elbow that cut short his season. He recently received a cortisone shot in that elbow to help with a painful bone spur.    Daniel Descalso homered to right in the fifth inning for the Cardinals.

February 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Will Clyburn and Chris Babb each scored 17 points and Iowa State trounced Texas Tech 86-66 on Saturday for its third straight win. Melvin Ejim had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Cyclones (19-8, 9-5 Big 12), who tuned up for Monday’s home game with Kansas by outscoring the Red Raiders 50-37 in the second half.

The Cyclones stretched their lead to double digits, 50-39, with 13:52 to go and led by at least 10 the rest of the way. Iowa State went ahead by as many as 28 points in cruising to its 22nd straight home win. Josh Gray had a game-high 20 points for Texas Tech (9-16, 2-12), which has lost eight in a row. Texas Tech handed Iowa State its only bad loss so far, stunning the Cyclones 56-51 in Lubbock last month. The Red Raiders haven’t won since.

February 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Dylan Talley’s tie-breaking, shot clock-beating 3-pointer with 9.2 seconds left sent Nebraska to a 64-60 victory over Iowa Saturday and put a dent in the Hawkeyes’ NCAA tournament hopes. The Cornhuskers (13-14, 4-10 Big Ten) used a couple of big runs in the second half to come back from a 16-point halftime deficit and end the Hawkeyes’ three-game win streak. Talley scored 18 points and Shavon Shields added 17 for Nebraska, which shot 62.5 percent the second half and outscored Iowa 19-7 over the last 9:42. Iowa shot 28 percent the last 20 minutes.

Brandon Ubel added 12 points and Ray Gallegos 11 for the Huskers. Roy Devyn Marble had 18 points, Aaron White 15 and Eric May 10 for the Hawkeyes (17-10, 6-8). After Talley’s 3-pointer from behind the top of the key, Iowa’s Mike Gesell missed a 3 with 2.9 seconds left.

Iowa FB Brad Rogers ends career due to injuries


February 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Senior Iowa fullback Brad Rogers’ career with the Hawkeyes is over.  Coach Kirk Ferentz said Friday that Rogers and sophomore linebacker Jim Poggi will end their football careers because of “persistent injury issues.” Rogers, of Toledo, Ohio, played in 27 games over the past three seasons with Iowa. He had one more year of eligibility.

Poggi, a linebacker from Towson, Md., did not play the past two seasons because of injuries. He was one of 13 Iowa players who ended up hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis, a rare muscle disorder that can cause kidney damage, two years ago after offseason workouts.
