LAWRENCE, KANSAS — The 15th-ranked Iowa State Cyclones look for a rare win in Allen Fieldhouse tonight with a visit to ninth-ranked Kansas. The Cyclones have dropped 15 of their last 16 in Lawrence with the lone victory in 2017. ISU coach T.J. Otzelberger is more concerned about how his team plays than where the game is played.

Otzelberger says the Cyclones can’t get caught up in the atmosphere.

After opening 12-0, the Cyclones have lost two of their last three.

Tipoff is scheduled for 7 o’clock tonight in Lawrence.

 

 

CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson says Noah Carter will remain the starter at center tonight when the Panthers host Indiana State. Junior center Austin Phyfe is still dealing with the long-term effects of COVID and his playing time has been limited.

Jacobson says Phyfe’s minutes have varied from game to game.

The Panthers are riding a three-game winning streak and Jacobson credits improved defense.

Jacobson says three-point defense has made strides since the Panthers lost twice in Hawaii.

Indiana State has not played since January second due to a COVID pause

 

 

 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings on Monday fired general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer. The move comes after a second straight absence from the playoffs. Zimmer went 72-56-1 in eight seasons. He was 2-3 in the playoffs. The 65-year-old Zimmer had the seventh-longest tenure among NFL head coaches this season. All six of the peers ahead of him on the seniority list have won a Super Bowl. Spielman was with the team since 2006 and general manager since 2012. Owner Mark Wilf said the Vikings will first choose a new general manager who will have input into the head coach hire.
