IOWA CITY — The 8th-ranked Iowa basketball team will be in search of a rare win over Michigan State when the teams collide tonight in Iowa City. The Spartans have won 14 of the last 16 in the series, including five in a row. This game was postponed in mid-January at the start of the Spartans’ COVID pause. Iowa center Luka Garza.

The Spartans have lost their first two games since resuming the season and are just 2-6 in the Big Ten.

Garza says the Hawkeyes must match the Spartans’ toughness.

This begins a stretch of three games in six days for the Hawkeyes as they’ll host Ohio State on Thursday and travel to Indiana on Sunday. Tonight’s Iowa-Michigan State game tips off at 6 o’clock, with the pre-game starting at 5 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO.

 

 

 

AMES — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says he is just looking for progress. The Cyclones look to bounce back from a 39 point thrashing at Mississippi State when they host 17th-ranked West Virginia tonight. ISU is 2-9 overall and 0-6 in the Big 12.

Prohm expects to have at least 10 players available. He had only eight for two games last week.

With more players available Prohm expects the Cyclones to be more competitive in the paint.

West Virginia is 11-5 overall and 4-3 in the Big 12.

 

 

 

DES MOINES — Drake improved to 17-0 in convincing fashion. Tremell Murphy poured in a career high 30 points as the 25 ranked Bulldogs cruised to a 95-60 win over Illinois State Monday night to sweep their two game series. The Bulldogs connected on 62 percent in the second half and finished the game with 13 three pointers.

Drake coach Darian DeVries called it the Bulldogs most complete game since returning from a three week COVID pause.

The performance came a day after the Bulldogs escaped the Redbirds by two in overtime.

The Bulldogs entered the AP Poll on Monday for the first time since 2008, being ranked #25.

 

 

 

CEDAR FALLS — UNI coach Ben Jacobson expects senior center Austin Phyfe to return to practice this week as the Panthers get set for a series against Indiana State. Phyfe missed the second half of Sunday’s loss at Southern Illinois with an injury.

That’s UNI coach Ben Jacobson who says the injury occurred in Saturday’s win over the Salukis.

UNI hosts Indiana State Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon

 

 

MASON CITY — The NIACC volleyball team is ranked 16th in the latest junior college Division II poll released on Monday.
