Can Iowa finally beat Michigan State?

Sports

January 8th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Hawkeyes look to move to 3-0 in the Big Ten but must clear a major hurdle as they host Michigan State tonight (Thursday). The Spartans have owned the Hawkeyes in recent years having won 13 of the last 14, including eight in a row. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says their strength, again, is defense. Iowa let Michigan State off the hook in their last two meetings in Iowa City, including last year’s 71-69 loss in overtime.

McCaffery feels this years team is more able to grind out wins with defense. He says it will take a complete effort to get the win. Iowa is 11-4 overall. The Spartans are 1-1 in the Big Ten and 10-5 overall.

AP source: Chief sign QB Terrelle Pryor to 1-year deal

Sports

January 8th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have signed Terrelle Pryor to a one-year deal to provide competition at the backup quarterback spot, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because the Chiefs had not announced the deal. Pryor worked out for the team earlier in the day, and later tweeted a picture of himself carrying a notebook with the Chiefs’ logo on it.

The signing could mean the end of backup Chase Daniel’s run in Kansas City. The Chiefs are tight against the salary cap, and parting with Daniel could save nearly $4 million. The Chiefs also have developmental quarterbacks Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray on the roster.

NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Daishon Knight scored 15 points, MiKyle McIntosh had 10 with nine rebounds and Illinois State rolled past Drake for an 81-45 victory Wednesday night. Paris Lee chipped in 12 points and Tony Wills had 10 with six assists for the Redbirds (9-6, 1-2 Missouri Valley), who shot 56.6 percent from the field and had a 38-21 rebounding advantage. Justin McCloud hit three of Illinois State’s nine 3-pointers.

Drake (3-12, 0-3) was held to 14-of-44 shooting (31.8 percent), gave up 21 points off turnovers and another 12 on second-chance opportunities. Chris Caird was the lone scorer in double figures for the Bulldogs with 15 points and Trevor Berkeley had nine. Illinois State pulled away with a 32-8 run sparked by a pair of 3-pointers from both McCloud and Lee for a 36-16 lead in the first half. The Redbirds coasted in the second half, leading by as much as 44.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Seth Tuttle tied a career-high with 24 points, on 9-of-12 shooting, and Nate Buss scored a season-high 15 to lead Northern Iowa to a 55-39 win over Southern Illinois Wednesday night. Tuttle had eight rebounds and Buss made 6 of 9 field goals, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range. Southern Illinois made just 8 of 27 field goals in the first half and trailed 25-18 at the break.

Sean O’Brien opened the second half with a 3, pulling the Salukis within four, but an 19-6 run by Northern Iowa (13-2, 2-1 Missouri Valley) over the next eight-plus minutes made it 43-27 and Southern Illinois trailed by double digits the rest of the way in Cedar Falls. A jumper by Wes Washpun with 3:13 to play gave the Panthers their biggest lead of the game at 55-37.

No. 17 Iowa State holds off Oklahoma State 63-61

Sports

January 7th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Dustin Hogue blocked a 3-point try with under a second left to help 17th-ranked Iowa State hold off Oklahoma State 63-61 on Tuesday in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Hogue had all 17 of his points in the second half for the Cyclones (11-2, 1-0 Big 12), who shook off a cold start to beat the Cowboys for the third straight time — all by four points or less.

Phil Forte’s layup pulled Oklahoma State within 63-61 with 55 seconds to go. But Hogue stuffed Tavarius Shine’s try from the corner, and Georges Niang blocked Forte’s desperation 3 at the buzzer. Forte had 21 points and Le’Bryan Nash scored 19 for Oklahoma State (11-3, 1-1).
