AMES — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell says a final decision on who will start at quarterback against sixth ranked West Virginia will be made later in the week. Freshman Brock Purdy got his first extensive action and passed for 318 yards and rushed for 84 in a win at Oklahoma State. Kyle Kempt could also be available. He injured a knee in a season opening loss at Iowa.

Campbell says a decision will be made after watching Kempt practice.

New NCAA rules would allow Purdy to play in four games and still be a freshman next season. Campbell expects him to eclipse that number.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 6 o’clock.

 

 

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Minnesota Twins player Miguel Sano will not face criminal charges in the Dominican Republic as a result of his involvement in a traffic incident that injured a police officer, authorities said Monday. Police said in a statement that the third baseman was released from custody after striking the officer with his car, leaving him with a broken leg outside a nightclub in San Pedro de Macoris early Sunday.

 

 

IOWA CITY — With the top nine scorers returning the Iowa basketball team is looking for a bounce back year. The Hawkeyes are coming off a 14-19 record a year ago that snapped a string of seven post season tournament trips and coach Fran McCaffery has placed more emphasis on defense.

The Hawkeyes ranked last in the Big Ten in defense a year ago by giving up 83 points per game. McCaffery says all aspects of the program were evaluated, beginning with himself.

Instead of forgetting about last season McCaffery has asked his team to take ownership of it.

Sophomore center Luka Garza has not returned to practice, yet. He underwent surgery last month to remove a benign cyst in his abdomen.

The Hawkeyes open the season November eighth against Missouri-Kansas City.

 

 

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa center Luka Garza hopes to be ready for the season opener next month after doctors removed a 9-pound cyst attached to his spleen in early September.

Garza said on Monday during the team’s annual media day that his doctors don’t really know when or why the cyst developed, though he said he played last season without any pain in that area.

But Garza said that, had the cyst not been removed, he would have run the risk of it rupturing in practice or during a game. Damage to the cyst might have caused the spleen to rupture as well, a scenario that would’ve put Garza’s life in danger.
