Huskers Extend Iowa Native Connie Yori’s Contract


June 13th, 2012 by admin

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska women’s basketball coach and Ankeny native Connie Yori has received a two-year contract extension through 2017.

Athletic director Tom Osborne said Tuesday that Yori deserved to be rewarded for a 2011-12 season in which the Cornhuskers went 24-9, including 10-6 in their first year in the Big Ten, and advanced to the championship game of the conference tournament.

Yori, who earned a base salary of $660,000 last year, will be paid $673,000 in 2012-13.

The Cornhuskers lost to Kansas in the first round of the NCAA tournament and finished the season ranked No. 22.

Yori, entering her 11th season at Nebraska, has guided the Huskers to eight postseason tournament appearances and more than 20 wins a season over the past nine years.

Pop Warner Football Limits Contact in Practice


June 13th, 2012 by admin

CHICAGO (AP) — Pop Warner football players won’t be taking quite as many hits from now on.

The youth organization says it is limiting contact in practice in an effort to make the game safer for young players starting this year.

It says coaches must limit contact to no more than one-third of their practice time. It is also banning full-speed, head-on blocking or tackling drills in which players line up more than 3 yards apart. The organization says coaches can have full-speed drills where players approach each other at an angle but “not straight ahead into each other.” It also says there should be no head-to-head contact.

The rule changes announced Tuesday were developed by Pop Warner’s medical advisory board as part of its effort to reduce the risk of concussions.

Royce White Works Out for Timberwolves


June 13th, 2012 by admin

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Royce White worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday and said he’s hoping his hometown team drafts him with the 18th overall pick.

White played in high school in the Minneapolis suburb of Hopkins and enrolled at the University of Minnesota before a series of run-ins off the court led him to transfer to Iowa State.

White says the change of scenery served him well, and he became a star in his one season with the Cyclones.

But he says he would welcome a return to his home state. He says he knows there would be added pressure playing in front of family and friends.

The Wolves also worked out Minnesota native Jordan Taylor, a point guard from Wisconsin, and Michigan State forward Draymond Green, among others.

Cardinals Fall to White Sox 6-1


June 13th, 2012 by admin

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run homer, rookie left-hander Jose Quintana allowed one run over 5 1-3 innings and the streaking Chicago White Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 Tuesday night.

Paul Konerko had three singles on a 3-for-4 night to lift his majors-best average to .373, Adam Dunn added a solo homer — his 21st — and Orlando Hudson hit a two-run triple for Chicago.

Quintana (2-1), making his fifth start, allowed a career-high 10 hits but did not issue a walk and was helped out by three double plays.

St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright (5-7) lasted seven innings and allowed half the amount of hits as Quintana. He gave up two runs while striking out seven and walking two.
