ANDERSON HITS 7 3-POINTERS IN STANTON TRIUMPH


(Stanton) Stanton's Ragen Anderson connected on 9-17 shots from the field including 7-12 from three point range in the Viqueens 78-36 win over Sidney.

 

The 25 point total is not a season high for the senior who posted 27 points against Corning and is averaging 16.6 per game this season. Carmen Subbert helped the cause with a double-double 12 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Stanton got off to a good start in the first quarter and had an even better second quarter. The squad turned a 17-5 first quarter lead into a 45-16 halftime edge thanks to a 28 point second quarter. Sarah Sedurberg and Rachel Sorenson were both in double figures as well.

 

Stanton improves to 7-2 on the season. They are scheduled to play 6-2 Fremont-Mills on Thursday. Fremont-Mills is coming off of a win over Villisca earlier this week.

RIVERSIDE BOYS STEAMROLLING COMPETITION, UP NEXT ADAIR-CASEY


(Adair) Riverside is scheduled to take on Adair-Casey Thursday night in a doubleheader that will air on KSOM.

 

The Riverside boys basketball team is off to an undefeated start to the season and this week alone has outscored their opponents 135-19 in wins over Stanton and Audubon.  Bulldog head coach Jason Shelangouski says Adair-Casey will provide a unique challenge for his team because they have quicker guards as opposed to big strong guards.

 

The focus of Riverside’s defense will be on Spencer Rochholz who averages 22.4 points per game and Emmitt Wheatley who comes in with an average of 17 points per game.

 

Riverside’s 8-0 start has been headlined senior Ricky Williams' state leading 27.5 points per game average, but another key force for the Bulldogs has been Brady Ryun with 10.8 points and nearly 5 assists per game.

WIN STREAK HITS 5 GAMES FOR TRI-CENTER GIRLS TEAM


(Neola) A 44-40 win over Griswold on Tuesday gives the Tri-Center girls basketball team their sixth win of the season and their fifth in the last five tries.

 

An extremely balanced scoring attack was on display for the Trojans in their four point win over Western Iowa Conference foe Griswold. Shelby Sullivan's 9 points was tops on the team and 7 different players were in the scoring column. The team shot 34% from the field but were able to grind out the win putting them at 6-1 close out the first portion of the season.

 

Tri-Center's next matchup will come following the holiday when they take on AHST on the 4th of January

VAIS SCORES 21 IN ADAIR-CASEY'S WIN


(Adair) With one game scheduled before the holiday break the Adair-Casey girls basketball team sits at 9-0 and holds the #6 ranking in Class 1A from the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

 

Adair-Casey's latest win came on Tuesday against Orient-Macksburg 63-16. London Vais led the team in scoring with 21 and Dani McCorkel scored 12. The 16 points allowed marks the third time this season that the team has held an opponent under 20. Standing out on defense was Katie Clarke with 6 steals.

 

The lone game remaining on Adair-Casey's schedule this month is a non-conference matchup with Riverside set for Thursday KSOM.

NODAWAY VALLEY FINISHES PHASE ONE WITH 48 POINT WIN


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley stayed perfect on the season in boys basketball with an 80-32 win over Bedford on Tuesday. It was the Wolverines final game before the holiday break.

 

Nodaway Valley used a 22-0 second quarter run to take control against Bedford and win their seventh straight. Brad Baudler scored 20 points and the senior’s offensive output has been a major part of the undefeated start. Baudler’s point per game average is up nearly 10 points from last year.

 

Coach Darrell Burmeister reflects on his teams first seven games by pointing to their consistency on defense. The 24 ppg allowed is the lowest of any team Burmeister has had.. The team ranks second best in Class 2A in points allowed.

 

Nodaway Valley will scrimmage some very quality opponents over the break. They’ll get the opportunity to see Harlan, Dallas Center-Grimes, and IKM-Manning just to name a few.

 

Unbeaten Nodaway Valley will have perhaps their toughest test to date immediately following the break. The Wolverines are set to take on unbeaten Pleasantville on Friday, January 4th.

GUTHRIE CENTER BOYS ENTER HOLIDAY BREAK AT 7-1


(Guthrie Center) In their final game of the calendar year Guthrie Center raced past Ogden 79-50. Head Coach Seth Poldberg admits he was expecting a closer game going in but was pleased with the whole team in the victory.

 

Adam Courtney posted a season high 38 points to up his average to 26.8 points per game. Adam Courtney ranks third in the state in scoring for Class 1A this year. Seniors Gavin McGiveny (15) and Caleb Courtney (11) combined for 26 more. The win over Ogden comes on the heals of a 61-55 loss to Des Moines Christain last Friday.

 

Guthrie Center does not play the rest of the week and won't take to the court again until January 4th. That's when the 8-1 Tigers oppose Van Meter. It will be a good measuring stick to start the new year as Van Meter also had just one loss as of Wednesday.

HOLSTE'S BACK TO BACK THREES LEAD CAM TO COMEBACK WIN


(Elk Horn) Both teams came into Tuesday night's matchup with identical records and the game played out the way it looked on paper, very close.

 

Exira-EHK and CAM traded leads several times throughout the game with Exira-EHK holding the lead for most of the second half.  With CAM down by four mid-way through the fourth quarter the Cougars partway through the fourth quarter the Cougars took the lead for good on consecutive three pointers by junior Michael Holste. Holste's two straight triples put the Cougars on top by two and the team was able to take care of the ball and make just enough free throws down the stretch to secure their third victory.

 

Trevor McKee shot 7/10 from the free throw line in the second half and led all scorers with 14. Michael Holste (13) and Connor Bell (11) each made three three pointers and finished in double figures. Exira-EHK's leading scorer was Cole Anderson who came in averaging 20 points per game and had 10 in the first half but was held to 13 for the game.

QUICK START AND GOOD FREE THROW SHOOTING PUSH EXIRA-EHK PAST CAM


(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK picked up a 47-35 girls basketball win over CAM Tuesday night thanks in large part to their fast start. The Spartans scored the first 12 points and didn't allow a CAM field goal in the first quarter leading 15-1 after the first eight minutes. Early in the second quarter Exira-EHK added to their lead before CAM came to life late in the first half and cut the margin to nine, at 21-12 by halftime.

 

CAM continued to chip away in the second half but could never get closer than four points. Exira-EHK was led by Rachel Smith's 21 points which included 12/14 from the free throw line. As a team the Spartans connected on 19/22 free throws. Claire Paulsen scored 11 for Exira-EHK who improves to 8-1 this season with their fifth straight win.

 

CAM drops to 5-3 with each team having one came left ahead of the holidays. Emily Beerman scored 14 points for the Cougars and Carson Heiney pitched in with 10.

ATLANTIC COMES FROM BEHIND TO BEAT HARLAN


(Harlan) Sam Markham scored a season high 21-points to lead Atlantic past Harlan 43-41 Tuesday night. Markham scored five straight points in the final minute of the game including a 3-point shot with 39-seconds to play to give Atlantic a 43-41 lead. The Cyclones held out for one shot but couldn’t knock it down and the score held.

 

Harlan jumped out to a 5-0 lead early and led 15-13 after one quarter and 30-17 at the half. But, the Trojans came out the second half and held the Cyclones to just two field goals outscoring them 26-11.

 

Markham scored 16 of his 21-points in the second half. Dalton Franken added 14-points, and Harrison Hoegh had 5. Chad Christiansen finished the night with 3-points.

CHRISTOFFERSON LEADS ISU TO VICTORY


CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - Hallie Christofferson scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Iowa State (7-1 overall, 0-0 Big 12) kept Northern Iowa (4-6 overall, 0-0 MVC) at bay during the second half to post a 67-59 win Monday in the McLeod Center. The win was Iowa State's 10th straight against Northern Iowa and the Cyclones' fifth straight win over the Panthers in Cedar Falls.

 

Iowa State began the second half with a 33-20 lead and held a 48-35 advantage after a pair of Christofferson free throws with 9:29 to go. UNI methodically worked to close that gap, which was cut to five points when Panther Jen Keitel hit a three that made the Cyclone lead to 56-51 with 2:55 remaining. Northern Iowa would get no closer. A Christofferson bucket was followed by a full court pass from Nikki Moody to Anna Prins for a layup against a pressing Northern Iowa team. A Moody basket followed that gave the Cyclones a 62-51 advantage with 1:15 left in the game.

Chelsea Poppens had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Cyclones, her 50th career game in double figures scoring. Anna Prins had 14 points for Iowa State as Moody finished with 11 points, seven assists, five rebounds and a steal with just two turnovers in 36 minutes of play.

 

Iowa State utilized a 22-5 run that started midway through the first half and led UNI 33-17 with 2:32 left before halftime.  Prins scored eight points during the Iowa State scoring rush. The Cyclones outscored the Panthers, 16-2 in the paint in the first half.

Jacqui Kalin led UNI with 19 points. Keitel had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Panthers, who made 11 threes in the game.

 

The crowd of 3,190 included a sizable number of vocal Iowa State fans. The Cyclones play host to East Tennessee State Thursday at 7 p.m. in Hilton Coliseum.

RIVERSIDE DOWNS ANOTHER WESTERN IOWA CONFERENCE CONTENDER


(Oakland) In boys basketball Riverside sits at 6-0 with three games remaining remaining in before the holiday break.

 

The Bulldogs win on Friday over Tri-Center broke a tie with the Trojans atop the conference standings. Riverside got off to a 13-0 lead to start the game and never trailed. They were able to hold off several comeback attempts by Tri-Center who could never close the gap to any closer than five points.

 

Riverside increased the lead over the final five minutes of the game and pulled away with a 67-49 victory. Class 1A's leading scorer in the state Ricky Williams had 30 points. The Riverside senior scored 21 of those in the first half and made 15/20 free throw attempts in the win.

 

Williams' exploits offset a 21 point outing from Tri-Center's Brittan Berrier. The Trojans suffer their first loss of the season.

TRI-CENTER GIRLS WIN FOURTH STRAIGHT


(Neola) Tri-Center improves to 5-1 in girls basketball with a 73-42 win at Riverside Friday. The Trojans put the pressure on early and left little down from the very beginning. Coming off of quality wins against Missouri Valley and Audubon, Coach Julius Michalik had mentioned before that game that the key was to come out with intensity and not have a letdown game.

 

The start of the game certainly went in Tri-Center's favor as they got off to a 24-8 lead after one quarter and continued to add to their lead the rest of the game. Emily Baatz knocked down four three-pointers to finish with 19 points. Shelby Sullivan adden 14 and Nikki Paulsen contributed 12. The high scorer for Riverside was Sheyenne Smith who had 17 of her 23 points in the second half.

 

Tri-Center will take on Griswold and AHST next week ahead of the holiday break. 2-4 Riverside has three games remaining before Christmas.

AUDUBON STRIVING FOR WIC WRESTLING TITLE


(Audubon) Audubon will host the Western Iowa Conference Wrestling duals which start at 5:00 Friday.

 

The Audubon Wheelers on the wrestling mat so far this season have proven to be a tough team to beat in the dual format. They have put together a 9-1 record with their lone loss coming to South Central Calhoun. The team has gotten off to a strong start despite graduating a very good senior class from last year.

 

Audubon will open up the round robin tournament with a matchup against Treynor. They will also face Tri-Center and Griswold Friday before taking on the remaining conference teams on Saturday.

TRI-CENTER WRESTLING WELL HEADING INTO CONFERENCE TOURNEY


(Tri-Center) Tri-Center head coach Andy Hensley says this year the conference is as strong as it has been in a long time. He looks as Audubon as a possible favorite going in. Coach Hensley says the Trojans are wrestling really well right now.

 

At 113 pounds Christain Polley is 8-1 on the season with one tournament win under his belt. Two-time state qualifier Darrian Irlbeck is 7-1 at 145. Loren Williams, the two time defending state champion, has just one loss on the season and it came against a two-time Nebraska state champion from Omaha. Williams has been wrestling at 160 but is on his way to 152. At 182 Ben Wellman has started the season at 9-1.

 

Coach Hensley says all eight teams in the conference are better than they were a year ago and the tournament should provide a good show for the fans.

GRISWOLD SHOULD BE CONTENDER AT WIC DUALS THIS WEEKEND


(Griswold) The Western Iowa Conference wrestling duals will be held Friday and Saturday. Griswold head coach Sam Collora says there doesn’t appear to be a clear favorite this year.

The Tigers are among the teams that could be in the mix. They have a 4-2 dual mark this year including two quality wins earlier this week. They beat Missouri Valley 42-18 and Nodaway Valley 38-30.

 

1st year coach Sam Collora is not surprised by the success that his Griswold team, led by six seniors, has experienced so far this year.

 

Coach Collora lists Underwood, Riverside, Tri-Center, and Audubon when asked about the top teams at the conference. He says it will give his team a good test to see where they stack up against the competition but says ultimately his team’s goals for the season come down to what they do at the end of the year.

YOUNG NAMED TO ELITE CROSS COUNTRY ACADEMIC ALL-STATE TEAM


(Griswold) Allison Young, daughter of Jon and Beth Young of Elliott, was named to the Iowa Cross-Country All Academic, All-State Cross Country team. The honor is reserved for high school seniors who have a grade point of 3.8 or above, an ACT score of 28 or higher, and qualified for the state meet or placed in the top 30 at regional’s during their senior season.

Young, a senior at Griswold High School, has run on the Lady Tigers cross-country team since her freshman year. She qualified for three teams. An injury side-lined the stand-out runner her entire sophomore season. 


"Allison has joined a very elite group of athletes. The standards for the award are very high. Allison does her absolute best at whatever task she undertakes whether it is in the classroom or on the cross-country course. She is a model of what it means to a student athlete," stated Jane Chaillie, Griswold cross-country coach.

In addition, Young earned WIC Academic All-Conference honors, along with her teammates, Jordyn Sindt, Larissa Backhaus, Serena Robinette, Xavier Olivo, Mason Anstey, Joe Sampson, and Dillon Becktol.

ADAIR-CASEY GIRLS BASKETBALL UNDEFEATED


(Adair) Adair Casey heads into their matchup with Glidden-Ralston on Friday with a perfect 7-0 record. Dating back to last season the 7th ranked Bombers have won 13 straight regular season games.

 

Adair-Casey was able to survive a poor shooting night with solid a defensive effort in Tuesday’s 59-31 win over Ankeny Christian Academy.

 

Friday night’s game is against a Glidden-Ralston team that has dropped seven straight games to start the year.

 

The Bombers have been led so far this season by three scorers averaging in double figures. That’s London Vais at 16.2 points per game, Katie Clarke at 11.3 points per game, and Quinn Ruth averaging 10 points per contest. The trio has combined for over 73% of the team’s offensive production.

RIVERSIDE BOYS LIVING UP TO THE HYPE


(Oakland) Riverside came into the boys basketball season ranked in the top ten in the state and looking to move up the ladder. Through the season's first three weeks of the year the team has done nothing to diminish their chances of accomplishing that goal.

 

Off to a 4-0 start to the season, the Bulldogs have compiled an average margin of victory of 23.4 points per game. The most recent win came against AHST on Tuesday night by a final of 72-49. Riverside jumped out to a big early lead in that one (40-17 at halftime) and hung on for the win. Ricky Williams scored 29 points and collected 13 rebounds. Brady Ryun added 18 points in the win.

 

Next up for Riverside is a key conference matchup on Friday. The team will take on Tri-Center who is also unblemished in the WIC standings. Coach Jason Shelangouski says one of the best things about his team is there ability to identify and improve upon the areas they need to work on.

12 3-POINTERS LEAD TRI-CENTER TO WIN OVER AUDUBON


(Neola) Christian Way connected on seven of his nine three-point attempts to lift Tri-Center past Audubon 81-32 on Tuesday. Tri-Center shot 56% from the floor including 52% beyond the arc in the win. The Trojans move to 4-0 on the season.

 

The game against Audubon is one of three this week for the Trojans who will also take on Clarinda Academy and Riverside. The Riverside game on Friday matches up the top two teams in the Western Iowa Conference standings and will air on KSOM.

 

Tri-Center coach Chad Harder says some of the early season bright spots include how hard the team is playing and the way the bench is performing. Another key for the Trojans is the play of Britton Barrier who is averaging nearly a triple-double. Barrier through the first four games of the year has averages of 22.8 points per game, 9 rebounds per game, and 8 assists per game.

NODAWAY VALLEY BOYS CONTINUE TO ROLL


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley stays perfect with a 58-26 win over conference nemesis Mount Ayr on Tuesday. Alex Welsch posted 24 points and 16 rebounds to aid the Wolverines to their fifth straight win to start the season.

 

Nodaway Valley head coach Darrell Burmeister says Mount Ayr was a good test for his team and explains that defensively a triangle and two was used to hold Mount Ayr's top scorers in check.

 

Overall this season the Wolverines are off to a fantastic start. They average 80.8 points per game offensively while only allowing 20.6 per game. They will take on Martensdale-St. Marys on Friday. Coach Burmeister says he expects a high scoring game.

ATLANTIC DEFEATS CLARINDA IN BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL ACTION


(Clarinda) Dalton Franken scored a season high 26-points to lead Atlantic past Clarinda 60-33 at Clarinda Tuesday night.

 

The lead changed hands only once and that was after the Cardinals took a 2-0 lead. The Trojans led 17-9 after one quarter of play and 30-19 at the halftime break. The big difference in the contest was the third quarter when Atlantic came out of the locker room at half and reeled off 15-straight points and outscored the Cardinals 19-2 in the third quarter.

 

Dalton Franken scored 13-points in each half and finished the night 3-3 at the free throw line. Chad Christiansen scored a season high 15-points. Stuart Hoegh tallied 9-points, also a season high for the 6-2 senior.

 

Troy Aldrich came off the bench and scored 9-points to lead the Cardinals, now (0-5) on the season. The #10 ranked Trojans extend their record to 5-1. Atlantic takes to the road again on Friday night at Shenandoah and Saturday night at Norwalk, before closing out the pre-holiday schedule on the road at Harlan on December 18, and at home against Lewis Central on December 21.

HARLAN GIRLS PICK UP KEY WIN OVER KUEMPER CATHOLIC


(Harlan) Harlan topped Kuemper Catholic 59-50 in girls basketball last night. Harlan stays perfect this season with that nine point victory.


The game was very close in the first quarter with the teams exchanging leads and Harlan holding a 16-15 advantage through the first eight minutes. The Cyclones defense though would clamp down in the second quarter only allowing five points to take a 32-20 halftime edge. Harlan continued to control the game throughout the third quarter and early in the fourth building a lead as large as 16 points. However free throw stuggles down the stretch combined with Kuemper's three point shooting cut the lead to as little as six in the final minutes, but Kuemper could not get any closer. One big difference in the game was Harlan's bench outscoring Kuemper's 37-6.

That's Harlan head coach Zach Klaussen who talked afterwards about the importance of his team's 16-5 second quarter run.

Jordyn Moser led Harlan in scoring on the night. The freshman came off the bench to post 16 points. Taylor Wagner and Jess Schaben each had 9 points in the win. Kuemper Catholic's Lexi Albrecht led the Knights with 15 points. Kuemper falls to 5-2 on the season heading into their matchup with Glenwood on Friday. The Harlan Cyclones are 5-0 with their next game being on the road at Creston.

 

TEAMWORK AIDS ADAIR-CASEY BOYS TO WIN STREAK


(Adair) After dropping their season opener to Grandview Park Baptist, the Adair-Casey Bombers have rattled off four straight wins. Coach Mark Emgarten points to the teams unselfish style of play as the main difference in play. He says they are playing a more team oriented style as opposed to the one-on-one games they were playing early in the year. Defense has also provided a spark with leading scorers Spencer Rochholz (22 ppg) and Emmitt Wheatley (19 ppg) getting many of their baskets after steals. 

 

Adair-Casey starts off this week with an opponent that caused them alot of trouble last year. Undefeated Ankeny Christian Academy stands in the way of a potential 5th straight win. Also on the docket this week for the Bombers is Glidden Ralston on Friday.

SPARTAN BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM LOOKING FOR FIRST WIN THIS WEEK


(Elk Horn) After going to the state tournament two years ago and to sub-state last year the Exira-EHK Spartan boys basketball team has experienced a slow start to the 2012-13 season. Several factors have contributed to the team's sluggish start from a deep run into the football season to injuries to inexperience.

 

Spartan head coach Doug Newton points to the team's outside shoot as one key area that needs to improve. Newton notes that a higher percentage from the outside will help open things up on the inside.

 

Despite having two road games this week the Spartans will get a couple of good opportunities to secure their first win. The road trips include Orient-Macksburg on Tuesday and Iowa Christian Academy on Friday. The combined record of those two opponents is 1-7.

KUEMPER HANDS ATLANTIC THEIR FIRST LOSS OF THE SEASON IN BOYS BASKETBALL ACTION


(Atlantic) Cole Neary scored 25-points to lead Kuemper, Catholic Carroll past Atlantic 64-57 Friday night at Atlantic.

 

Neary had to pick up the slack after Sam Brinks, who averages 15-points a game, spent much of the first half on the bench with foul trouble. The Knights led 10-7 after one quarter and 27-26 at the halftime break.

 

The Trojans led by Sam Markham’s season high 19-points, took a 4-point lead right out of the gate in the third quarter with a 5-0 run.

 

Chad Christiansen hit a three-point shot and Markham scored on a layup to give the Trojans a 31-27 lead. But the Knights fired 9-unanswered points to re-gain the lead 36-31, before Markham broke the Kuemper run on a transition layup to cut the lead to 36-33. A Markham free throw shortly after that sliced Kuemper’s lead to 36-34.

 

Each team exchanged three point buckets to move the score to 39-37, Kuemper, before Stuart Hoegh pulled down an offensive rebound and put it back in to tie the game at 39-39.

 

The Trojans grabbed a 41-39 lead on a Chad Christiansen assist to Sam Markham on a fast break with 2:10 left in the third quarter and extended their lead to 43-39 on Dalton Franken’s short jumper.  Each team then exchanged baskets to leave the score at 47-45, after three, Atlantic with the advantage.

 

Kuemper regained the lead 48-47 early in the final stanza on Chris Halburs’ three-pointer but fell behind 49-48, on Dalton Frankens two-point jumper. Moments later the Knights regained the lead 50-49 on Cole Neary’s lay up and never trailed again to win 64-57.

 

Sam Markham led Atlantic with 19-points, Dalton Franken (pictured)  finished the game with 14, Chad Christiansen knocked down 11, Harrison Hoegh 6, Stuart Hoegh, 5, and Jared Fulk chipped in 2.

 

Cole Neary led all scorers with 25-points, Sam Brinks knocked down 10-points and Carter Ludwig chipped in 8 for the 3-2 Knights. The Trojans go to 3-1 on the season.

10TH RANKED RIVERSIDE BOYS OFF TO 3-0 START


(Oakland) Riverside got the Western Iowa Conference portion of their schedule off to a good start on Tuesday with a 56-45 win over Treynor. Those two teams split their regular season meetings a year ago and thus split the conference championship.

 

Now the team focuses their attention on Griswold Friday night. Riverside head coach Jason Shelangouski refers to Griswold as a dark horse in the conference race with their athleticism.

 

The Bulldog's 3-0 start has been headlined by Senior Ricky Williams who has been on a tear. The big man has shed some weight heading into his high school season and is averaging 30 points per game plus 12 rebounds per night.

2ND HALF RUN LEADS GRISWOLD BOYS TO VICTORY


(Griswold) The Griswold boys basketball team is off to a 1-0 start in conference play. The Tigers edged AHST 55-49 on Tuesday.

 

Coach Chad Rodgers says his team came out flat to start the game but picked up the intensity later on. Once the team did get going they reeled off a big second half run, 20-2, to turn the tide. Coach Rodgers credits their pressure defense, led by Tyrel Peters, Grant Haynes, Devin Bates, and Jacob Maass, for turning things around. The win was a big one for Griswold to get with a tough schedule ahead.

 

The Tigers oppose Western Iowa Conference powers Riverside and Treynor their next two times out.

CAM GIRLS OUTLAST GLIDDEN-RALSTON 52-21


(Anita) The CAM Cougar girls basketball team stays perfect on the young season with their win on Tuesday. The team doubled up on Glidden-Ralston 52-21.

 

Emily Beerman scored 20 points and Carson Heiny contributed 14. Coach Joe Wollum says the team was only 1-2 at this point last year and the difference has been on defense.

 

The Cougars will have their toughest test to date when they play Adair-Casey on Friday. Adair-Casey is 4-0 and ranked #7 in Class 1A.

ATLANTIC BOYS SHAKE OFF ANOTHER SLOW START, IMPROVE TO 3-0


(Atlantic) Ranked 5th by the AP and 4th by the Sports Spotlight, the Atlantic boys basketball team is off to a 3-0 start to the season.

 

Win #3 did not come easy for the Trojans as they had to come from behind against the Red Oak Tigers. Red Oak and Atlantic traded baskets early on with the Tigers leading 16-15 after one quarter and 22-21 at halftime. In the second half Atlantic's defense rose to the occasion, only allowing 11 more points the rest of the way. Meanwhile, Atlantic posted 19 second half points to come away with the 41-33 win.

 

Atlantic senior Dalton Franken netted a game high 16 points and Harrison Hoegh added 11 for the Trojans. Ryan Leinenger led Red Oak with 9.

 

Atlantic will host Kuemper Catholic on Friday in a game that will air on KS95.7 FM.

Clyburn, who had 22 points in the first half, also recorded five rebounds, two blocks and two steals in the win.

IOWA STATE ACCEPTS INVITE TO THE 2012 AUTOZONE LIBERTY BOWL


(Ames)  The Iowa State football team will be returning to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis after a visit more than four decades ago under legendary coach Johnny Majors. The Cyclones will play in the 2012 AutoZone Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. CT against Conference USA Champion Tulsa. The game will be televised by ESPN.

"Our football team is extremely enthusiastic about the opportunity to play in one of college football's most historic bowl games," Coach Paul Rhoads said. "We are honored to represent the Big 12 and participate in a bowl with the outstanding reputation of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. I am excited that our fans can drive to the site, support our team and enjoy the festivities. Memphis will be colored Cardinal and Gold for the New Year!"

Iowa State played in the 1972 AutoZone Liberty Bowl against Georgia Tech and the game drew the second-largest attendance in the bowl's history at that time. George Amundsen hit Ike Harris on a five-yard TD pass to cut a Tech lead to 31-30 but the two-point PAT failed.

"We are thrilled to accept a bid to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl," Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. "Because of the game's storied history, its New Year's Eve playing date, national TV exposure, a chance to play a league champion, and the fact Memphis will be an affordable and drivable trip for many Cyclone fans, it's a great destination for the Cyclones. More than 40,000 Iowa State alums live within a day's drive of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and we fully expect ISU alums and students to take advantage of the close proximity and have a huge presence on Beale Street before and after the game."

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl, which is the seventh-oldest bowl game, has been a highly competitive contest recently as every game since 2004 has been decided in the final minutes. The bowl is working on plans to honor Majors and former Cyclone assistant coach Jackie Sherrill during bowl week. Part of the bowl's mission is to showcase the exemplary work of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The 2012 Cyclones won six games against a schedule ranked among the five toughest in the nation. Iowa State won three road games for the first time since 2001, including a 14-point victory at TCU to break the nation's longest winning streak. Iowa State was ranked 25th in the initial BCS standings of the season, the school's first-ever appearance in those ratings. Cyclones fans also smashed all school attendance records last fall.

Tickets for the 2012 AutoZone Liberty Bowl cost $55 each and sales begin Monday, Dec. 3 at 9 a.m. The athletics department has decided to offer ISU student tickets for $25 each and subsidize the price difference.
