Northern Iowa beats George Mason 71-65 in OT


December 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Seth Tuttle scored 16 points with eight rebounds and four assists as Northern Iowa beat George Mason 71-65 in overtime Saturday night. Paul Jesperson added 12 points and five rebounds for the Panthers (8-0). Bennett Koch had 11 points and Nate Buss 10. Wes Washpun led the team with nine rebounds. The team hit just 37.7 percent from the field and 61.8 percent from the line.

With the Panthers leading 59-57 in the final seconds of regulation, George Mason’s Marquise Moore drew a foul and then hit both free throws, sending the game into overtime. In the extra period, Tuttle hit a layup with less than a minute to play and Jesperson sank two from the line to help the Panthers to the win.

Moore led the Patriots (2-6) with 20 points. Shevon Thompson had nine points and a team-high 11 boards.

Hooker, North Dakota rally past Drake 63-62


December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Quinton Hooker scored 16 points and hit a go-ahead, driving layup with 14 seconds left as North Dakota put together a late surge to beat Drake 63-62 on Saturday. Trailing by five with under a minute left, Hooker sank a layup and then stole the ball, leading to Estan Tyler’s putback with 33 seconds left. Another turnover by Drake set up Hooker’s go-ahead score and North Dakota’s first lead of the game.

Hooker wasn’t done there, as he blocked Reed Timmer’s layup attempt. Drake got one more look, but Jordan Daniels couldn’t connect on a 3-pointer in the final seconds. North Dakota (3-4) shot 53.2 percent from the field, with Tyler and Terrel de Rouen each chipping in 15 points. Jaron Nash added nine points with eight rebounds.

Timmer led the Bulldogs (1-7) with 13 points and Daniels had 12. Drake shot over 50 percent, but committed 19 turnovers.

Illinois State rolls past N Iowa 41-21 in FCS


December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Tre Roberson threw for 382 yards and four touchdowns and Marshaun Coprich become Illinois State’s single-season rushing leader with his 12th-straight 100-yard game to lead the Redbirds to a 41-21 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday.

The Panthers (9-5) won the first meeting of these Missouri Valley Conference rivals 44-28 to start a five-game winning streak to make the FCS playoffs but fell behind 24-0 at halftime. The Redbirds (11-1) extended their school-record winning to 13.

Roberson had two touchdown passes in the first half and Coprich ran for a score as Illinois State piled up 345 yards to 52 for Northern Iowa. The Redbirds finished with 564 yards to UNI’s 335. Coprich had 148 yards on 30 carries giving the league MVP 1,831 this season.

Cameron Meredith had seven catches for 115 yards and James O’Shaughnessy four for 105 and both had two touchdowns.

No. 4 TCU takes care of business vs Iowa State


December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Trevone Boykin passed for a career-high 460 yards and caught a touchdown pass as No. 4 TCU earned at least a share of the Big 12 championship and did nothing to hurt its case to be included in the College Football Playoff with a 55-3 victory against lowly Iowa State on Saturday.

The Horned Frogs (11-1, 8-1 Big 12) came into championship weekend ranked third in the selection committee’s rankings. TCU was the only playoff contender not playing a ranked team this weekend. There wasn’t much the Frogs could do help themselves against the Cyclones (2-10, 0-9), but they avoided the type of clunker that could have caused the committee to downgrade them.

Iowa State finished winless in the Big 12 for the first time since 2008, and the first time under sixth-year coach Paul Rhoads.

Iowa blasts UMBC 77-47


December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Peter Jok and Gabe Olaseni each tied career highs with 15 points apiece and Iowa trounced Maryland-Baltimore County 77-47 on Saturday. Aaron White had 14 points in just 17 minutes for the Hawkeyes (7-2), who’ve won five straight since back-to-back losses to Texas and Syracuse

Iowa went on a 20-0 run midway through the first half, turning the rest of the game into a glorified exhibition. The Hawkeyes led by as many as 35 points.  Cody Joyce had nine points to lead the winless Retrievers. UMBC (0-8) committed 26 turnovers.

Shotgun deer season opens today (12/6/14)

News, Sports

December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The first shotgun deer season opens today (Saturday), and while the number of deer taken each year has dropped 33-percent since 2006, a D-N-R expert says the prospects for this season remain good. “Deer numbers are definitely down from what they were a few years ago, but there is lots of good hunting available. And because last year we had probably a little bit reduced harvest in some areas, there should be some good hunting opportunity. And with the weather, it will be a great time to be out there,” according to D-N-R wildlife research supervisor, Willie Suchy. He says your success in the deer hunt depends on where you go.

“We’ve got good deer numbers in much of the state where there is good deer habitat. And the best habitat is in southern Iowa and northeast Iowa and parts of western Iowa,” Suchy says. “One change this year would be from northwest Iowa, the first-season shotgun hunters can only shoot antlered deer. That’s a restriction to try and protect that herd up there a little bit.” The state had increased the number of licenses for does or female deer when they wanted to trim the herd, and now have cut antlerless tag quotas in 72 counties.

“Outside northwest Iowa hunters can still shoot does, they just have to kind of think about what’s the best thing to do for where they hunt,” Suchy explains. “We adjust those things annually based on harvest and that’s an important part of what hunters can do as well to help us manage deer, is to report their harvest.” Hunters are required to report taking a deer within 24 hours. Suchy says Iowa deer hunters tend to have some experience. “In general, hunters are reflective of our society. We’ve got a lot of traditional hunters who started when they were young like me, who are in their 50’s and 60’s and 70’s. And we’ve got some newer ones — don’t have a good handle on the younger hunters — but we do a lot to try and encourage hunting,” Suchy says. He says they getting young people involved in hunting is a challenge, the same as it is for other pursuits.

“Having opportunities available seems to be the biggest thing, the thing that keeps hunters from going into the field is they just have so many other things to do and opportunities to spend their time at,” Suchy says. “If its too hard of a thing to get access to hunting or know how to do it, it becomes a bit of a problem.” Whether you are young or old, Suchy says you have to follow the proper precautions when hunting.

Suchy says the biggest thing they emphasize is safety. “Wearing hunter orange is the best first step, and then the second step…you should always know where you are shooting, so you are not shooting at somebody else in the party,” Suchy says. The first shotgun deer season runs through December 10th.

Show off some trophies…even if they’re not yours

December 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Area residents have a chance to take home the gold and a piece of history from Treynor Community School’s sports teams. The Daily NonPareil reports more than 400 trophies will be auctioned off on Dec. 9th beginning at 4-p.m.,  at Treynor High School, 102 E. Main St.

According to business teacher Jennifer Travis, the school has hundreds of old trophies that have been in storage for years. In an effort to make them more visible to the public, all past trophies are being photographed and categorized into an electronic digital display, which will be shown on a monitor in the trophy case. Trophies mostly range from 1960 to 2008, though a few from 1930 to 1957 are on auction.

Basketball, track, golf, softball tournaments and other activities such as the Brain Bowl are up for grabs. However, trophies from state tournaments, district titles and other major accomplishments will continue to be on display with the school and are not for sale.

A silent auction will be held for most of the high school trophies. A number of junior high trophies are available for $1 each. Proceeds will go to the Treynor Athletic Department. To view the trophies, go to treynorschools.org. People who are unable to attend the Dec. 9 basketball game and would like to place a bid can email Travis at jrtravis@treynorcardinals.org with information before 6 p.m. Dec. 8.
