(AMES, Iowa) — Iowa State women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly will quarantine for 14 days following exposure to the coronavirus. Fennelly said he has since tested negative along with everyone in the Iowa State program but is following medical advice that includes the quarantine. “I am thankful to have an amazing staff to manage the program while I’m away,” Fennelly said in the statement. “It will be hard to miss games, but I will watch and cheer along with the best fans in the nation. Our focus continues to be, as always, on the team and we are committed to doing everything we can to allow them to play safely.”

The Cyclones are scheduled to play games against Omaha, South Dakota State, TCU and South Carolina during Fennelly’s absence. Associate head coach Jodi Steyer will take over while Fennelly is in quarantine.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Chicago White Sox will host the New York Yankees in the rescheduled Field of Dreams game at Dyersville, Iowa, on Aug. 12. MLB says the plan is tentative, contingent on the status of public health next summer. The teams had been scheduled to play at the ballpark next to the “Field of Dreams” movie site last Aug. 13. When the schedule was revamped because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Yankees were replaced as the opponent by the St. Louis Cardinals, but the game was called off on Aug. 4. The rescheduled game will be MLB’s first in Iowa.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Scott Frost says linebacker Collin Miller is unlikely to play the rest of the season after he injured his spine making a tackle against Illinois. Miller suffered a spinal concussion, which is characterized by a temporary sensory impairment and motor weakness. It usually goes away in one to three days with no lasting effects. Miller was hurt early in the fourth quarter Saturday and taken off the field on a stretcher. He was hospitalized overnight. The senior captain from Fishers, Indiana, is the Cornhuskers’ fourth-leading tackler. He visited his teammates Monday at practice.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jared Goff threw for three touchdowns and the Los Angeles Rams held Tom Brady in check during a 27-24 win over the Buccaneers at Tampa Bay. Cooper Kupp had 11 receptions for 145 yards and Roberts Woods finished with 10 catches for 130 yards and a TD. Jordan Fuller picked off two passes from Brady, who finished 26 of 48 for just 216 yards and two touchdowns as the Bucs fell to 7-3.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa women’s basketball team, along with the Big Ten Conference, announced its 2020-21 schedule on Monday afternoon. The schedule includes 20 conference and four nonconference contests.

The Hawkeyes open the season in Carver-Hawkeye Arena against in-state foe Northern Iowa on Nov. 25 before heading to Drake on Dec. 2 for their only nonconference road matchup. On Dec. 9, Iowa hosts Iowa State for the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawkeye Series contest. Iowa closes out its nonconference slate against Western Illinois on Dec. 22.

Iowa opens Big Ten play on Dec. 5, hosting Wisconsin and concludes hosting Nebraska on Friday, March 5 or Saturday, March 6 (depending on TV selections). Big Ten home/away matchups include: Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Rutgers, and Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes host Michigan, Penn State, and Purdue in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and travel to Illinois, Maryland, and Michigan State.

Iowa finished the 2019-20 season 23-7 overall, ranking No. 21 in the final AP Poll before the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hawkeyes closed conference play, 14-4, placing third. Iowa ranked in the top-15 nationally in six statistical categories, including fourth in field-goal percentage (48.5), sixth in total assists (599) and assists per game (20), 11th in scoring offense (79.5), 12th in 3-point field-goal percentage (37.2), and 15th in assist turnover ratio (1.27). They return nine letterwinners, including starters Alexis Sevillian and Monika Czinano.

Czinano, a 2019-20 first team All-Big Ten selection (media), was named to the preseason All-Big Ten team (coaches & media) on Nov. 11 after ranking second in the country in shooting percentage (67.9) as a sophomore.

Tip times and television information will be announced at a later date. The complete 2020-21 schedule is also located on the Iowa women’s basketball schedule page on hawkeyesports.com.

Another schedule change for UNI men’s basketball team

Sports

November 23rd, 2020 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – A schedule change at the Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls means the UNI men will have a new opponent for Wednesday’s opening round. The Panthers will now play Western Kentucky after being originally scheduled to play West Virginia. The Panthers have three starters back from a team that won the Missouri Valley Conference regular season title but several young players will be counted on for significant minutes.

That’s UNI coach Ben Jacobson, who says the young players will be counted on to provide depth.

Drake prepares to open basketball season at Kansas State Wednesday afternoon

November 23rd, 2020 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – Drake is motivated by low expectations as they get set to open the season Wednesday afternoon at Kansas State. The Bulldogs are picked to finish in the lower half of the Missouri Valley Conference and one of the reasons is the loss of center Liam Robbins. The Davenport native transferred to Minnesota after a sophomore season in which he averaged more than 14 points and seven rebounds in being named All-Valley.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who feels the Bulldogs have become an established program. They posted 24 wins and 20 wins in his first two years as coach.

DeVries says playing K-State is a great way to open the season.

Junior guard D.J. Wilkins says the Bulldogs hope to prove the pre-season polls wrong.

(Radio Iowa) – UNI senior point guard Karli Rucker says a regular practice routine has helped the Panthers as they approach the new season. The Panthers open on Wednesday night at Iowa.

The Panthers return their top five scorers from a team that finished 18-11 and Rucker says a standout recruiting class will add depth.

Rucker led the Panthers in scoring last season and is looking to improve in all phases,

Iowa’s Monica Czinano previews the basketball season

Sports

November 23rd, 2020 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – Big things are expected from junior center Monica Czinano for a young Iowa women’s basketball team this season. Czinano finished second in the nation in field goal percentage last season at 68 percent in being named All-Big Ten. She spent the off season trying to improve her foot work and rebounding.

Czinano spent much of last season plagued by foul trouble and she is hoping to limit that this season.

The addition of six-three freshman Sharon Goodman will provide more depth in the post this season when foul trouble occurs.

The Hawkeyes open at home on Wednesday night against Northern Iowa.
