January 10th, 2019 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa senior Megan Gustafson has been named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top-25 list, ESPNW announced Wednesday evening.

The list is comprised of 25 student-athletes who are front-runners for the John R. Wooden Award All-America Team and Most Outstanding Player Award. The list is chosen by a poll of national women’s college basketball media members.

Gustafson ranks in the top-seven nationally in eight categories. She leads the nation in field goal percentage (71.1), double-doubles (13), points per game (26.8), and field goals made (143), and ranks third in total points (349) and defensive rebounds per game (10), fifth in rebounds per game (12.9), and seventh in rebounds (168).

The Port Wing, Wisconsin, native became Iowa’s all-time leading scorer on Dec. 30 and the school’s leading rebounder on Dec. 5. She has 2,173 career points and 1,159 career rebounds.

Gustafson and the No. 17/17 Hawkeyes return to action Thursday, traveling to West Lafayette, Indiana, for a matchup with Purdue. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. (CT) on BTN.

January 10th, 2019 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Bridget Carleton had 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to lead No. 20 Iowa State to a 92-54 victory over TCU on Wednesday night for its seventh straight win. The Cyclones (13-2, 3-0 Big 12 Conference) improved to 11-0 at home while TCU (11-3, 1-2) has lost two straight following an eight-game win streak.

Ashley Joens added five 3-pointers and finished with 22 points and nine rebounds for Iowa State. Kristin Scott had 12 points, and Meredith Burkhall and Alexa Middleton chipped in with 10 points apiece. Kianna Ray scored 10 points for TCU, which shot 32 percent from the field and missed 18 3-pointers and 12 free throws.

The Cyclones opened the second quarter on a 15-1 run, capped by Joens’ 3-pointer, to build a 38-20 halftime advantage. Carleton and Joens combined for 11-of-13 shooting that included six 3-pointers for 33 points in the second half. Carleton drove the floor and scored on a reverse layup midway through the third quarter that gave the Cyclones a 20-point lead.

Iowa State hosts No. 11 Texas on Friday.

Weiskamp leads Iowa over Northwestern 73-63

Sports

January 10th, 2019 by Ric Hanson

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — With leading scorer Tyler Cook out of the lineup, someone had to step up for Iowa to fill the void. Freshman Joe Weiskamp was up to the task. Weiskamp had 19 points, Luka Garza added 16 and Iowa beat Northwestern 73-63 on Wednesday night for its first true road win of the season. Isaiah Moss had 12 points for the Hawkeyes (13-3, 2-3 in the Big Ten), who have won seven of eight. Cook, a 6-9 junior forward, sat out with a sore knee.

Vic Law had 13 points and 10 rebounds, Anthony Gaines also scored a career-high 13, Ryan Taylor had 11 and A.J. Turner 10 for Northwestern (10-6, 1-4), which has dropped two of three. Dererk Pardon, the Wildcats’ second-leading scorer, was held to six points and five rebounds before fouling out with four minutes remaining.

Despite missing Cook’s 17.3 points in the starting lineup, Iowa jumped out to a 9-2 lead. Northwestern missed its first five field-goal attempts and its first seven 3-point attempts, but battled back from the slow start to tie the score at 13. The Hawkeyes were leading 28-19 — their biggest of the first half — with 5½ minutes to go before the Wildcats closed with a 15-6 run for a tie at 34 at halftime.

Taylor opened the second half with a 3-pointer to give Northwestern its first lead. The Wildcats stretched their edge to 44-37 a few minutes later and seemingly had gained control of the game.
Iowa, though, responded with a 15-2 run for a 52-46 lead with 12½ minutes to play. Weiskamp hit a 3-pointer to put the Hawkeyes back on top, 47-46. The 6-6 guard then capped the run with a slick crossover for a layup and a 3-point play — picking up the fourth foul on Law in the process.

Northwestern had opportunities to mount a rally in the final 10 minutes, but couldn’t develop any consistency offensively. The Wildcats were 22 of 57 (38.6 percent) from the field, including 7 of 27 on 3-pointers. Luka Garza was playing just his second game since spraining an ankle on Dec. 21. He was limited to 10 minutes in Sunday’s win over Nebraska, but played 26 on Wednesday, going 10 for 11 from the foul line

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Joe Weiskamp had 19 points, Luka Garza added 16 and Iowa beat Northwestern 73-63 despite playing without leading scorer Tyler Cook. Isaiah Moss had 12 points for the Hawkeyes (13-3, 2-3), who have won seven of eight.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Bridget Carleton had 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to lead No. 20 Iowa State to a 92-54 victory over TCU for its seventh straight win. The Cyclones (13-2, 3-0 Big 12 Conference) improved to 11-0 at home while TCU (11-3, 1-2) has lost two straight following an eight-game win streak.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Markus Howard scored 14 of his career-high 53 points in overtime after Sam Hauser’s deep 3-pointer at the end of regulation tied the game, and No. 21 Marquette beat Creighton 106-104. Howard’s dazzling offensive performance set a Marquette record and broke his own record for points in a Big East game. His 53 points were the most by a player in a game matching Division I opponents this season, one behind the 54 Furman’s Jordan Lyons had against D-II North Greenville.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy interviewed for four head coaching jobs last week, when Kansas City was on its bye. He insists that his focus this week is solely on preparing for a divisional round game against Indianapolis. But after that? He could follow in the footsteps of his predecessors, Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Kalani Brown had 16 points and nine rebounds, Lauren Cox added 13 points and 10 rebounds and the No. 4 Baylor women beat Kansas State 65-50. The Lady Bears momentarily fell behind in the third quarter Wednesday night before a 9-0 run to end the quarter and take the lead for good. The Lady Bears Big 12 won their third game in a seven-day span that started with their home win over then-No. 1 UConn last Thursday.
