Cyclone Men’s Basketball Coach T.J. Otzelberger earns extension & salary increase


June 1st, 2022 by Chris Parks

Ames, Iowa—After leading the Iowa State men’s basketball program to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time since 2015-16 and the third-best turnaround in NCAA history in his debut season on the Cyclone bench, head coach T.J. Otzelberger has been rewarded with a contract extension and salary increase, ISU Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard announced today.

“T.J. Otzelberger and his staff orchestrated arguably the greatest turnaround in college basketball history this past year, inheriting a two-win program and leading it to 22 victories and the Sweet 16 in their first season, and I’m grateful that we are able to reward that success with this extension,” Pollard said. “I believe T.J. is building a championship culture within our program that fosters academic excellence, on-court success and accountability, and I believe that the momentum our program enjoys will lead to future success under his direction.”

Otzelberger’s contract now runs through June 30, 2027, and his additional guaranteed compensation will increase from $700,000 annually to $1.2M effective immediately with an annual increase of $100,000 starting on July 1, 2023. All other terms of his original contract are unchanged.

Otzelberger’s debut season in Ames produced a 22-13 overall record, the school’s 21st NCAA Tournament bid and sixth Sweet 16 appearance en route to a season-ending ranking of No. 23 in the coaches poll. ISU registered the third-best improvement in NCAA history, a +20-win improvement over the program’s 2020-21 record. That 20-win improvement trailed only Towson (+21) and Middle Tennessee (+21) on the all-time charts.

Unanimously picked last in the Big 12 Conference preseason poll, the Cyclones defied all odds in making the NCAA Tournament and finishing seventh in the nation’s toughest conference. ISU climbed as high as No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 and was ranked for a total of 10 weeks during the season as it was one of the nation’s last two undefeated teams before falling to an unbeaten Baylor squad in the conference opener for both teams.

Otzelberger became the eighth head coach in school history to lead the Cyclones to the NCAA Tournament, and just the third coach in NCAA Tournament history to lead his program to the Sweet 16 in the first season after taking over a team with a losing record the previous year. The 11th-seeded Cyclones advanced to the Sweet 16 with wins over LSU and Wisconsin before falling to Miami, Fla., in the Sweet 16.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa men’s basketball student-athlete Kris Murray announced on Wednesday that he is returning for his junior season.

“These past two months have been a tremendous learning process for me,” said Murray. “By going through the NBA Draft process, I believe that it will help me in the long run and this upcoming season at Iowa. I can’t wait to get back to work with my teammates and coaches to play for the best fan base in the world. Go Hawks!”

Murray (6-foot-8, 211 pounds) posted single season bests in every statistical category last season. He improved his scoring average by +9.1 points per game and rebounding average by 3.7 per outing.

Murray was Iowa’s leading scorer (9.7 ppg) and rebounder (4.3 rpg) off the bench, which ranked fourth and third overall, respectively. His 31 blocks and 43 3-point field goals rank seventh and eighth most, respectively, by a Hawkeye sophomore. He ranked second on the squad in 3-point accuracy (.387, 43-of-11), blocked shots per game (0.9) and field goals made (124), third in offensive (1.6) and defensive (2.7) rebounds, and fourth in steals (0.8). He made at least one 3-pointer in a team-best 17 consecutive games (Jan. 22-March 13) and recorded multiple steals in 10 games and multiple blocks in nine contests.

“Everyone in our program is very excited to have Kris back,” said Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery. “We are happy that Kris had a positive experience going through the NBA process. He gained valuable feedback through workouts and conversations with NBA personnel. Kris will be awesome next year.”

Cardinals squeak by Padres Tuesday as Pujols delivers sac fly in the 10th


June 1st, 2022 by Chris Parks

The St. Louis Cardinals picked up a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night in 10 innings of play. Paul Goldschmidt was walked in the 10th and Tommy Edman ran the bases and stole third with one out. Albert Pujols then delivered his second sacrifice fly of the night to give the Cardinals the win.

Goldschmidt extended his hitting streak to 22 games with a third-inning double that brought home the first Cardinals run. He would score another run on Pujols’ other sac fly.

Adam Wainwright struck out 10 and allowed just 2 hits in seven innings of work. Wainright and Yadier Molina celebrated their 314th start together, 10 shy of the all-time record.

The Cardinals improved to 28-21. The two teams finish out their set with a day game today. Pregame at 11:20 a.m. and first pitch at 12:15 p.m.

Decision looms for Northern Iowa star


June 1st, 2022 by Ric Hanson

Today (Wednesday) is decision day for UNI star A.J. Green. The two time Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year must withdraw from the NBA Draft if he intends to play in college next year. If he does the most likely destinations are Iowa State or Duke. Green had a workout with the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.

After missing nearly the entire 20-21 season with two hip surgeries Green averaged nearly 19 points in leading UNI to the Valley regular season title.

Green says the process of exploring the draft has been beneficial.
