Iowa baseball ‘at a crossroads’ after dropping series to Rutgers

IOWA CITY — Giving up eight runs over the first three innings of a 13-5 loss to Rutgers on Sunday afternoon did not make Iowa baseball coach Rick Heller very happy. After falling in both the game and series to the Scarlet Knights (15-22, 4-5 Big Ten), Heller had a couple things on his mind. “First off, we’re better than this,” Heller said. “Second, we’re at a crossroads...

UNI’s Brandon Carnes, Iowa’s Aaron Mallett break into top-4 nationally at Musco Twilight

IOWA CITY— As Northern Iowa’s Brandon Carnes heard “fourth-best time in the nation” announced after his blazing-fast Musco Twilight 100-meter time of 10.06 seconds Saturday, he knelt and seemed to be overcome with emotion. It was a nice win, but more importantly for Carnes, he’s surpassed the qualifying standard for the 100 meters. Basically, he earned himself a ticket...

Push comes to shove, Iowa’s offense should be able to do that

IOWA CITY — What Iowa will be in September — what we think Iowa will be in September — just doesn’t make for a spring-loaded spring game of fireworks and fun. Iowa has five returning starters on the offensive line. It has a wonderfully exciting running back in Akrum Wadley. It looks as if it has a potential workhorse-type running back in Toren Young, a 220-pound redshirt...

Hlas: Another 63-47, offense-light Friday night in Kinnick

IOWA CITY — The score of Iowa’s spring football game Friday night was 63-47, yet there were just three touchdowns. If you’re ever asked to explain that in an IQ or SAT test, good luck. In the meantime ... 1. Running back Akrum Wadley didn’t play, but we know what he can do. He had 1,396 total yards last season, 1,081 rushing and 315 receiving. He wants 1,400 yards in 2017...

No separation in Iowa’s QB competition

IOWA CITY — Last fall, Nathan Stanley jumped ahead of Tyler Wiegers in the Iowa quarterback race. It was a surprise. Stanley was a true freshman driving his scooter around Iowa campus for the first time. Last fall was last fall. Stanley and Wiegers started spring practice in a competition. They ended spring in a competition. They’ll begin camp in August in a competition. That...

Tight ends 'critical' to Iowa's success out of spring

IOWA CITY — As much as any aspect of the Iowa offense — both historically and recently — the tight end has played a key role in the Hawkeyes’ success. Given what the offense has shown this spring under new offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz, it appears that philosophy has only intensified — both from the apparently budding talent at the position and the necessity of the...

What we’ll be watching for in Iowa Hawkeyes spring game

Spring games are winding down this weekend across the Big Ten, and the Iowa Hawkeyes are changing things up a bit in 2017. Perhaps the biggest change is playing this game on a Friday night instead of its usual Saturday afternoon slot. The 2015 Big Ten West division champions had a pretty harsh fall from their perch atop the division in 2016. It resulted in some big changes, including...

Former Iowa guard Dean Oliver joins Wisconsin basketball staff

The Wisconsin men’s basketball team hired former Iowa guard Dean Oliver as an assistant coach Thursday.

Hlas: Jane Meyer vs. University of Iowa trial very trying for UI

DES MOINES — If all goes as scheduled Friday, Jane Meyer will continue her ongoing testimony in the Polk County Courthouse and Gary Barta will give testimony of his own. If you’re in Iowa City for the spring football game Friday night and think you’re hearing traces of anguish coming from various corners of the UI campus, it may be because harsh things about Hawkeyes or former...

Year of the big leap for Cedrick Lattimore

IOWA CITY — Cedrick Lattimore hasn’t been home, as he says, “for a minute.” That really means a long time, probably since one of the extended holidays, Christmas or spring break. The last time a lot of his friends and family in Detroit saw a lot of him he was a 245-pound power forward for the East English Village Prep basketball team. Now, he’s a 6-5, 290-pound defensive...

Iowa assistant Lacey Goldwire leaving for Arkansas

IOWA CITY — University of Iowa assistant women’s basketball coach Lacey Goldwire is leaving to become an assistant at Arkansas. Goldwire served on Lisa Bluder’s staff for the past four seasons. The Hawkeyes qualified for the NCAA tournament twice in Goldwire’s tenure, including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2015. Before her time at Iowa, Goldwire was a student assistant and...

Drew Cook joins the family business

IOWA CITY — Maybe it was inevitable, but maybe Drew Cook wanted to cut his own path. And let’s face it, quarterback is always going to be a monumentally more interesting position than tight end. Now, Cook is in the family business. Cook, a 6-5, 235-pound sophomore from Iowa City, moved from quarterback to tight end last week. Drew’s dad, Marv, was an all-American tight end...

Iowa’s offense is in install, evaluate mode

IOWA CITY — It has undoubtedly been a big spring for Brian Ferentz. This is his first season as Iowa’s offensive coordinator and there’s all of the work that comes with that. On Sept. 2 against Wyoming, Ferentz will be calling plays for a first-year starter at quarterback and for an offense that needs to find some sort of momentum in the passing game. In a lot of ways, this...

Fran McCaffery bullish on Iowa hoops' future

IOWA CITY — The 2016-17 season was one of transition for Coach Fran McCaffery’s Iowa men’s basketball team. A changing of the guard of sorts, a highly-touted freshman group was led by Tyler Cook, Jordan Bohannon and Cordell Pemsl on a team that finished 19-15 overall and 10-8 in Big Ten play while losing to TCU in the second round of the NIT. Senior Peter Jok was the Big Ten...

Cy-Hawk football game extended through 2023

Iowa State will remain the premier non-conference game on Iowa’s football schedule through the 2023 season.

Jane Meyer fired for angering coaches, others, Iowa officials testify

DES MOINES — The University of Iowa says it fired a former associate athletics director not because she’s a woman or gay, but because she angered coaches, including Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz. “Coach Ferentz said ‘We can’t work with her,” said George Carroll, an assistant Iowa attorney general defending the UI in an employment discrimination trial this week in...

Ex-Iowa official’s discrimination lawsuit goes to trial

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former University of Iowa athletic administrator was an outstanding employee on track to head a college program until she was unfairly demoted and later laid off for discriminatory reasons, her attorney argued Tuesday during opening statements of the trial over her lawsuit against the school.

U.S.' top prep basketball player is son of ex-C.R. Jefferson star

In 1983, Lisa Becker scored 58.7 points a game for Cedar Rapids Jefferson High School. “Fifty-eight points a game my senior year, my kids can’t get that,” the-now Lisa Porter said with a laugh from her Seattle home recently. The 6-on-6 game that year’s Iowa “Miss Basketball” played is something from her era, not theirs. But what her eight children do get is basketball...
