Iowa State coach T.J. Otzelberger wants to see his team become the aggressor once again when the 23rd ranked Cyclones visit Oklahoma State Wednesday night. The Cyclones are 2-5 in the Big 12 after a 59-44 loss at home to TCU.

Otzelberger says it was a sense of urgency that helped the Cyclones race out to a 12-0 start.

ISU made only three of 26 from three point range against TCU.

Otzelberger says the Cyclones need to work for better shots.

Riverside avenges previous loss to Audubon with 62-58 win Monday

Sports

January 24th, 2022 by Chris Parks

Some good defensive pressure and a big night from Grady Jeppesen pushed Riverside to a 62-58 win over Audubon on Monday night in Oakland. It was a close game through most of the first half and the Bulldogs used a 12-3 run to start the second half to grab a lead. The Bulldogs would have to knock down some free throws late to seal their 10th win of the season.

The Bulldogs went 12 for 16 from the free throw line in the second half and an impressive 10 of 11 in the fourth quarter to maintain the lead. Riverside head coach Nicholas Kroon was proud of the Bulldogs resolve down the stretch.

Coach Kroon said they made some defensive adjustments that helped create some steals and scoring chances in the second half.

Jeppesen finished the game with 30 points and grabbed some big steals in the game. He talked about the impact their defensive effort had on the game.

The Bulldogs also got 12 points from Ayden Salais and 10 from Aiden Bell as they improved to 10-7 on the season.

Audubon’s leading scorer was Carson Bauer with 20 points and Collin Bauer added 15 on five made threes. The Wheelers drop to 5-12 on the season.

Hermensen buries 7 threes in Audubon win over Riverside

Sports

January 24th, 2022 by Chris Parks

Aleah Hermensen knocked down seven shots from beyond the three point arc and finished with 29 points to lead the Audubon Wheelers to a 58-32 win over Riverside on Monday night.

Both teams struggled to get their offenses going early but Audubon started to get in a groove late in the first half with a 9-2 run to take a 22-14 lead at the break. The Wheelers then forced the Bulldogs into five straight turnovers to start the second half and the lead ballooned to twenty by the end of the third.

Audubon head coach Darran Miller said they changed some things defensively to get that spark to start the second half.

Coach Miller said Hermensen has the green light to shoot from the outside and it was fun to see her rolling.

Hermensen said she has felt good about her three point shot recently and has been looking for it a bit more.

The Wheelers improved to 12-4 on the season with the win and will face Underwood next on Friday.

Riverside was led by 12 points from Lydia Erickson who hit a couple late threes. The Bulldogs fall to 6-11 on the season and will play Whiting next Monday.
