After two years of holding the line on\u00a0taxes\u00a0and counting on future development that never came,\u00a0Rock Island city staff is proposing a budget for 2018\u00a0that\u00a0calls\u00a0for\u00a0increases in the property tax and several fees, as well as cuts.

These measures are needed to\u00a0maintain\u00a0financial stability in the face of rising costs and reduced revenues, City Manager Randy Tweet said in a news release posted late Thursday.

The overall budget is $117 million, with\u00a0$35.1 million in the general fund, he said.\u00a0The budget will be\u00a0presented to the\u00a0city council on Monday.

Here are the\u00a0proposed revenue increases:

\u2022\u00a0Increase the property tax levy by $1,101,216. This equates to a 8.96 percent increase\u00a0in the property tax rate. The new rate would be similar to the property tax rate in 2005.

For a home assessed at $100,000, the proposed increase amounts to less than $5 per month, or less than $60 per year.\u00a0

\"It is\u00a0important to note that in 2017, the city's portion of the property tax bill was only\u00a023 percent\u00a0of the total tax bill,\"\u00a0Tweet wrote. \"Any increase or decrease the city makes in the\u00a0property tax rate applies only to that small percentage of the total.\"

\u2022 3 percent\u00a0increase in the sewer fees, supporting the sewer fund only, not the general fund.

\u2022 $1 per month increase in the refuse fee, supporting the refuse fund only, not the\u00a0general fund.

\u2022 An increase in ambulance fees more in line with comparable communities.

\u2022 A 1-cent increase in the gasoline tax, going from 2 to 3 cents.

Here are the proposed cuts:

\u2022 Five vacant\u00a0positions will be eliminated \u2014 two in police, two in public works, and one in information technologies. There also\u00a0will be delays in filling positions in other departments.

\u2022 A delay in 2018 and future fleet purchases including fire and public works vehicles.

\u2022\u00a0A delay in contracted street maintenance, resurfacing and reconstruction. Two large\u00a0projects, the resurfacing of 18th Avenue from 17th Street to the Moline border and 38th Street from 7th Avenue to Blackhawk Road are still scheduled to begin in 2018.

\u2022\u00a0A reduction in public works materials and supplies.

The city council also\u00a0will\u00a0consider using a portion of the balance in the debt service fund, about $1 million,\u00a0to fund debt service scheduled to be paid for with gaming funds. The gaming funds\u00a0will then be used to cover the costs of some general fund service contracts.

\"The budget has proved challenging,\" Tweet wrote. The city's three goals were to\u00a0keep financial impacts to residents and businesses to a minimum, to maintain quality services and to be fiscally responsible.

\"The past two years the city has faced a potential general fund deficit during the budget process,\" Tweet wrote. \"Counting on future development, the city made temporary adjustments to balance the budget (including)\u00a0reductions in contracted maintenance, delayed fleet purchases, and leaving vacant positions open.

\"Unfortunately, the economic development projects did not come to fruition as expected. Failure to permanently address the funding shortfalls now will impact the future financial stability of the city.\"

He noted that while the\u00a0city\u2019s bond rating was downgraded earlier this year, it maintains\u00a0an\u00a0investment grade rating of A1 with a negative outlook.

MUSCATINE \u2014 A Muscatine County District Court Judge has ruled that residents who signed a settlement over emissions at the Grain Processing Corporation plant were not given complete information from lawyers negotiating the agreement.

In September, lawyers, who are being referred to as the Parry Group in court, announced they reached an agreement with GPC, where residents who have lived within 1.5 miles of the plant on Oregon Street for at least eight years could win up to $33,000, depending on proximity to the plant, home ownership status and other factors.

In order to sign the settlement, residents must opt out of a class action lawsuit, which is ongoing in court and will go to trial next July. Residents who have lived within 1.5 miles of the GPC plant, between April 2007 and this year are automatically included in the class, which seeks compensation for the loss of enjoyment of properties due to emissions.

According to court documents, approximately 14,000 individuals are currently included in the class action lawsuit. Since the announcement of the settlement agreement between GPC and the Parry Group, more than 2,000 residents have opted out of the class action.

Class action lawyers have argued the Parry Group has been soliciting their clients by encouraging residents to join the settlement without offering complete information. For example, in the announcement, the lawyers announced the top dollar amount residents could win in the settlement, but did not list the other conditions of the agreement.

The Parry Group has argued the settlement is the quickest way for residents to win compensation from GPC over emissions, and, at a hearing Oct. 2, said many clients are sick or elderly and in need of money now. Attorney Ron Parry said no one knows what the outcome of the class action lawsuit will be or how long the court process will last.

At the October hearing, Kelsey Knowles, a lawyer for GPC, said the settlement was negotiated because it was not \"feasible\" for GPC to litigate hundreds of individual claims at the same time as the class action. She added GPC was admitting no wrongdoing by agreeing to the settlement.

Tuesday, Judge Thomas Reidel agreed with the class counsel, arguing the Parry Group's settlement announcement \"paints a rosy picture that is not a fair representation of what it purports to be; it shows what settling class members receive, but not what they give up.\"

The judge said the lawyers failed to inform potential clients about the terms of the agreement, including residents would not be able to sue GPC for future harm caused by its operations and that residents would agree to placing a permanent easement on their properties, allowing GPC to continue operating its plant regardless of the environmental impact.

While a lot of attention and focus is placed on veterans, Quad-City mayors have additionally thrown their support behind those working in the background.

The mayors of Davenport, Bettendorf, Rock Island, East Moline and Moline\u00a0 announced they are becoming Hidden Heroes cities, an initiative to honor and support military caregivers, during an event Friday at the Figge Art Museum, Daven[prt.

\"When we send off our men and women into harm's way and they come back, they are, of course, affected, but families are part of that same challenge,\" Davenport Mayor Frank Klipsch said. \"We're here to say those hidden heroes are important to us and we want to be part of the support network that not only helps veterans, but the people that support them.\"

Hidden Heroes, an initiative that's part of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, was founded in 2012 by former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole after she witnessed firsthand the challenges families face with caring for wounded, ill and injured veterans.

\"These are spouses, parents, family members and families that dropped everything to take care for their wounded warrior, service member or veteran at home,\" Elizabeth Dole Foundation fellow Trish Simester said. \"In most cases, these caregivers began their journey in complete isolation without any support whatsoever.\"

The initiative helps connect the more than 5.5 million military caregivers in the U.S. with support and services. Besides the addition of five cities from the Quad-City area, more than 100 cities across the country have also signed onto the initiative.

Simester, who moved to Muscatine with her husband after he was injured in 2005, said the decision to relocate was validated by the support given by members of the community and the Quad-Cities signing onto the initiative.

Mike Matson, Davenport's 7th Ward alderman and a veteran whose family has four generations of military service, was on hand to lend support for the announcement.

In lauding the announcement, Matson recognized the Quad-Cities for a history of showing support to veterans.

\"We've been around a lot of places, but the Quad-Cities, in my opinion, has got to be one of the best supporting communities in the world for military organization and families,\" Matson said.

Two years ago, GI magazine recognized Davenport and the Quad-Cities as a top-10 community for military support, but Matson said acknowledging the caregivers for their importance and impact was long overdue.

\"With the wonderful organization of Hidden Heroes, it's about time we actually formally recognize the people that take care of the people that defend our freedom,\" Matson said.

NEW BOSTON, Ill. \u2014 Familiar sounds of recess \u2014 shrieks of laughter, back-and-forth chatter and the patter of footsteps across a patch of dirt \u2014 filled the chilly air, drowning out any of the middle schoolers\u2019 potential pleas for technological distractions.

Last week, about 40 miles southwest of the metro Quad-Cities, 75 or so seventh grade students from Bettendorf Middle School swapped cellphones for rakes. They cleared dead grass off a barren tract of land in Mercer County before hand sowing a variety of native prairie grasses and wildflowers.

The goal: To connect with nature and create a pollinator-friendly habitat, said Erin Allen, a science teacher in her fourth year at the school, who organized the undertaking.

\"We've got some squirrely kids that just need to move,\" she said, \"and this is that learning experience they'll never forget.\"

\"Grass\"

Bettendorf Middle School students Gage Anderson, left, and Richard Fish empty bins of thatch their group raked off a tract of private land last week in New Boston, Illinois.\u00a0

In conjunction with the owner of the private property and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Allen launched this three-year restoration project in the beginning of the 2016-17 school year after \"all the stars aligned.\"

The landowner, a former Bettendorf School Board member, who requested to remain anonymous, contacted Allen in the spring of 2016 after reading a Quad-City Times article about a water conservation project at the middle school. He offered up an acre of land in hopes students could use it as an outdoor learning lab. That summer, a then-pregnant Allen landed a six-week \"externship\" with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, an opportunity provided by the Iowa Governor's STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Advisory Council.

While working with a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service crew one day, she connected with Aleshia Kenney, a biologist for the Rock Island Field Office in Moline. Kenney expressed an interest in working with Allen, and the duo devised a plan. They decided to divide the allotted area into three sections so three successive classes of students could each focus on 1/3 of an acre through the 2018-19 school year. The federal agency paid for the total cost of seeds for the prairie, about $1,000, through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program.\u00a0

Before the recent field day, students researched plant species and pitched individual proposals to Kenney, who settled on seven unique grasses and 36 types of flowers.\u00a0

\"Because this is an educational project, I did a lot more flowers here than normal,\" Kenney said with a grin, standing on the site of the future prairie. \"I added some of the expensive stuff just to get it to really pop.\"\u00a0

\"Prairie

Aleshia Kenney, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, shows Bettendorf Middle School students last week the seeds they eventually sowed on private land in New Boston, Illinois, about 40 miles southwest of the metro Quad-Cities.\u00a0

When they eventually bloom, the plants will target pollinators, such as monarchs and bees, as well as migratory birds, she said. However, it will take a few years for the prairie to develop a strong root system.

\"Habitat takes time, it takes work and it takes devotion,\" said Kenney, a 10-year employee of the Fish and Wildlife Service. \"They'll be able to see it change over time and get to see what they're doing does make a difference.\"

Allen's current class will return here in the spring to see the growth and progression of the prairie. In the coming years, she envisions her students conducting biological surveys to determine what insects and wildlife call the restored ecosystem home.

\"We can teach it all day in the classroom,\" she said, \"but it doesn\u2019t really make sense until they come out here and they see how you seed something and how things are growing.\"

After completing their job last week, a group of students sat in a circle and chatted about the experience over lunch.

The group agreed it was refreshing to detach from their mobile devices and social media.

\"Prairie

Bettendorf Middle School students Andrew Crocker, left, and Eli Barr help prepare a piece of private land last week in New Boston, Illinois, before hand seeding native prairie grasses and wildflowers.

\"It's nice to get fresh air and realize what's really out there and how the world works,\" said Riley Wehr. \"When you're on your phone all day, you're not helping the environment.\"\u00a0

They felt a sense of accomplishment, too, knowing their relatively small effort benefited the environment and ultimately themselves.\u00a0

\"You never really think about how, like, our earth produces stuff, but when you think about it, like, it's a cycle where you have to give back to the environment for the environment to give back to you,\" Ahlivya Hill said.\u00a0

And they appeared inspired before boarding their Bettendorf-bound school buses with an understanding of their mission.

\"It's nice to think that, like, I didn't only help the environment,\" Rachel Redden said, \"but I also helped a community of pollinators that help us get our food.\"

They certainly do. And they smell, too\u00a0\u2014 very well, as any hunter can attest.

Why? Two reasons: Deer For Today and Deer For Tomorrow.

First, Deer For Today. Like any wild animal, deer have an inborn drive to survive. They use their amazingly receptive noses to sniff, with approximately 297 million olfactory (scent) receptors on constant alert, even when they\u2019re asleep. In comparison, dogs have 220 million and humans have just 5 million. (Having spent a lot of time on airplanes and in crowded elevators, I think that\u2019s more than ample).

Deer can smell danger from a mile upwind. Hence the billion-dollar industry selling scent-masking clothing, soap and potions to hunters. Unfortunately for mountain lions, bobcats and coyotes, all of which haunt Iowa and Illinois, they don\u2019t have the money to buy it. Even if they did, they\u2019d probably get kicked out of the store before they got to the checkout. Forget buying online: the package delivery folks wouldn\u2019t wander into the wilderness.

And it\u2019s also why hunters try to position themselves downwind of predicted deer travel paths. One whiff of Homo sapiens-hunter and even the youngest deer instinctively know to vamoose, post-haste.

Another aspect of survival is food. Deer can smell fallen, rotting apples from afar, likewise freshly cut crops or even acorns, they\u2019re favorite fat-building food in the fall.

But what about Deer For Tomorrow, a.k.a. procreation?

I will refer to only four of their many glands in this column, but knowledge of them can help a deer hunter in the quest of odocoileus virginianus.

The tarsal gland is a fat pad under a section of hair on the inside of both lower hind legs on deer that emanates a very pungent substance onto the hair. During the mating season (rut), both sexes urinate over these tarsals into a spot of bare ground where bucks have scraped away grass and leaves. Since each deer\u2019s tarsal scent is unique, it serves as a calling card to let other deer know who\u2019s been peeing around the neighborhood.

That enduring scent is so strong that I have detected it when I was far as 50 yards downwind.

Some hunters cut these glands from both sexes of harvested deer and hang them near their hunting stands to attract other deer. Note: wear gloves and store them in baggies to keep the smell off you. That stench is as permanent as a mother-in-law who comes for a \u201cshort visit.\u201d It\u2019s commercially available for those who don\u2019t have any of the Real McCoy because they\u2019re not very good at this hunty-thingy yet.

The interdigital glands hide between the two segments of the split (cloven) hooves and a small amount of scent secretes with every step. Also a calling card unique to each deer, the trail of a doe in estrus is often followed by a love-struck buck. The gents also leave interdigital trails, alerting boss bucks of interloping whipper-snappers horning in on his girls. It\u2019s another scent sold to hunters, who drag a cloth soaked in it to their stands in hope of Old Mossy Horns following it to them.

Sensing danger, a deer will stomp a front hoof, sometimes repeatedly, causing a large amount of interdigital scent to squirt out. I\u2019ve been busted many times by this. The sound alerts nearby deer, but the scent lingers for a long time. I\u2019ve watched deer approach the area hours after such a stomping and head out for Splitsville faster than you can utter something you\u2019d get your mouth washed out with soap for saying.

The preorbital glands have nothing to do with getting ready for around on the International Space Station. They reside immediately in front of each eye and, in addition to cleaning out the night\u2019s sleep crud, they leave a scent that is unique to each whitetail. Bucks often rub this gland on a twig overhanging a scrape to let the gals and other guys know he\u2019s lurking.

Finally, the forehead gland, which is just where your 4-year old would guess it is. Mature bucks push it mercilessly against trees, shrubs, fence posts (anything that will stay still long enough) during the rut, again to signal their presence. Their otherwise gray hair turns reddish, dark brown, or even black with this heady musk.

The whitetail has many other glands and senses designed to aid them in their two life quests: Deer For Today and Deer For Tomorrow. Next time you\u2019re afield, whether hunting or observing, try to detect some of these tactics for yourself. Get out, but please be safe. After all, it\u2019s a stinking jungle out there.

CHAMPAIGN \u2014 Credit for reviving the Illinois-DePaul basketball rivalry Friday doesn\u2019t go to either school. Big East and Big Ten Conference officials forced it by making the matchup a part of the annual Gavitt Tipoff Games.

The stubborn schools had no say in the matter.

But after a spicy showdown that should have left fans wanting more, shame on both schools if they don\u2019t make an effort to continue it.

Next time, however, bring an officiating crew that isn\u2019t so madly in love with their whistles.

With the volume cranked up for an in-state rivalry that sat dormant for 60 years, Illinois beat its toughest opponent to date 82-73 at the State Farm Center.

The game bogged down significantly, however, due to 59 personal fouls called and 63 free throws attempted. The two teams also combined for 35 turnovers.

Mark Smith led Illinois (3-0) with 21 points including 12-for-12 from the free throw line. Kipper Nichols matched his career high with 16 points and Aaron Jordan had his third straight productive outing with seven points and a team-high nine rebounds.

Justin Roberts led DePaul (1-2) with 19 points.

Michael Finke, who scored 9 points and blocked three shots for the Illini, said the physical nature of the game helped his team.

\u201cThere were a lot of whistles, but some games are going to be like that,\u201d Finke said. \u201cIt was a physical game. We were both trying to bring it to each other. We just had to keep driving and get to the free throw line.\u201d

Illinois was in front most of the game, but the memory of what happened in this gym last Sunday was never far away. Illinois led by 14 over Tennessee-Martin with less than four minutes to play and had to hang on to win, 77-74.

This time, however, Illinois finished the game in a more controlled fashion.

Illinois led 69-64 with less than five minutes remaining before going on a 6-0 burst to create more breathing room.

Aaron Jordan hit a 3-pointer on a feed from Leron Black to make it 72-64. Then Te\u2019Jon Lucas stole the ball and was fouled at the other end. He made one or two free throws to push the margin to 73-64. And when Finke scored on a fast break layup it was 75-64 and DePaul called timeout with 3:49 to go.

Smith continues to impress with his physical strength and he was the first Illini player DePaul coach Dave Leitao talked about by name.

\u201cMark Smith, a freshman, was probably the most poised player on the floor today,\u201d Leitao said. \u201cHe got lost in the game and made more plays and got himself to th4e line. Going 12-for-12 was a credit to what he can do.

\u201cHe has broad shoulders and can absorb contact. His mental approach to the game was impressive.\u201d

Through three games, Smith has taken advantage of his 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame. He muscles his way through traffic and is 19-for-19 from the line on the season.

Illini coach Brad Underwood said his team took a step forward.

\u201cGood slugfest,\u201d Underwood said. \u201cPunch counterpunch type of game and some growth on our part. I was really excited coming into this game because we had a really solid week of practice. We got better.

\u201cI gave Kipper a hug after practice the other day and he was tremendous. I can promise you this: He will get a hug tomorrow. He was outstanding on a night when Leron Black had a tough night due to foul trouble.\u201d

Illinois once again struggled from the 3-point line, this time making 5 of 23. For the season the Illini have made 15 of 64 \u2014 23.4 percent.

Former Illini guard Jalen Coleman-Lands was at the game. He transferred to DePaul after John Groce was fired but is ineligible to play this season. He had to provide his own transportation to the game because NCAA transfer rules do not allow a transfer who is sitting out to travel with the team.

For the second time this season, Illinois has a quick two-day turnaround. The Illini are back in the State Farm Center at 4 p.m., Sunday to play host to Marshall.

PALATINE, Ill. \u2014 In the past, if someone told Rock Island girls basketball coach Thad Hoover his dynamic duo of Brea Beal and Chrislyn Carr would make just 29.5 percent of their shots, he might be a little worried.

Not this Rocks team, they did it with defense and rebounding in a 60-35 win over Palatine Fremd in the Lake Zurich Turkey Thriller on Friday night.

\"We are a different team,\" Hoover said. \"We're more mature, and we have so many different things we can do on defense.\"

That's what made the difference. Trailing 18-16 late in the first half, two Beal steals led to a layup and a 3-pointer, and before you knew it, the Rocks were up 30-20 at halftime.

\"Those two steals were big,\" said Beal, who finished with her second straight double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds despite shooting 7-21. \"That got us going and got us a couple of easy baskets. We're so much better as a team this year than we have been in the past.

\"We understand the defense wins games. That is why we work so hard on defense every day in practice. We hardly even work on offense because we know that will come.\"

The Rocks' run continued into the second half, scoring the first 14 points of the third quarter to run the lead to 44-20, giving Rock Island its second straight blowout win over a top-level opponent. Fremd finished third in the state last season.

It was a scary scene as players huddled around the Tulsa Oilers bench Friday night.

First responders, doctors, players and staff from both teams watched as Tulsa head coach Rob Murray received medical attention after collapsing in the second period of the Oilers' game against the Quad-City Mallards at the TaxSlayer Center.

Murray was transported to Trinity West in Rock Island to receive overnight care.

At 10:49 p.m., Oilers vice president of communications and play by play announcer John Peterson tweeted out, \"Update on Coach Murray: He's doing well. The doctors have told me he's suffering from dehydration and exhaustion. They said there's no concern right now. Tests are coming back. I will continue to update. Thank you for all the thought, prayers and positive vibes.\"

According to Dr. Matt McKay, an emergency doctor at Trinity who was one of those tending to the 50-year-old Murray on the bench, the Tulsa head coach was awake and talking by the time the first responders reached him.

After a delay of over 10 minutes, Murray was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was moving and holding his right hand over his face.

The game itself, in which Tulsa led the Mallards 2-1 with 12 minutes, 8 seconds left in the second period, was postponed until a later date. Tickets to Friday's game will be honored when a date is determined.

Tulsa captain Adam Pleskach was on the bench when Murray collapsed and made sure play was stopped so he could be tended to.

\"He was just on the ground and (we) knew something wasn't right so we had the linesman blow the whistle so we could get attention as fast as we could,\" Pleskach said. \"I didn't see when he fell, I just saw when we were trying to help him up and knew something wasn't right. It wasn't just that he slipped and fell; it was something else. We were all really worried and shaken up, but he's a really good guy, and he's a good coach.

\"At the time, it's not something you see every day, and it's not something you want to see, and you're not sure how serious it is at the time. Right now we're just praying that he's going to be OK, and I think he is going to be OK.\"

Mallards head coach Phil Axtell didn't realize something was wrong until he noticed the Oilers players waving over medical personnel.\u00a0

\"I looked over and (athletic trainer Steve Lintern) was holding him,\" Axtell said. \"Thoughts and prayers to Coach Murray and everyone in his organization.\"

Murray, who played 16 years professionally, is in his first year with Tulsa after six seasons coaching the Alaska Aces, winning a Kelly Cup in 2013.

\"He's meant a lot,\" Pleskach said. \"He's really shaking up, really a different culture than it's been the last couple of years. Guys really rally around him. He's a really good guy to have around. He builds guys up so that's why we're just beside him through this thing.\"

The Oilers are currently just four games into a 14-game road trip and were scheduled to play in Indianapolis today. The status of that game had not been determined Friday night as the Oilers stayed in a local hotel overnight. The Mallards did not have any indication of when their game against the Oilers would be resumed.

\"It's rare that it happens, and hopefully he's good and you move on,\" Mallards President and General Manager Bob McNamara said. \"You play the game at some point, and hopefully he's all good and hopefully it was a minor episode and you deal with it.\"

The incident left players stunned and lost for words, while McNamara was in tears in the immediate aftermath. He was in Grand Rapids when former Detroit defenseman Ji\u0159\u00ed Fischer went into cardiac arrest while with the Red Wings almost exactly 12 years ago, and the incident Friday hit close to home.

\"The first responders were amazing. Genesis Health, they were amazing,\" he said. \"I don't know their names, but it was Genesis.\"

While all the Oilers remained on the ice while Murray was receiving attention, the Mallards went into the locker room, with the exception of Tristan King and Jacob Graves.

The team has to refocus for today's game against the Kansas City Mavericks.

\"Make sure they're focused and approach (today) like it's another game,\" Axtell said. \"We're pretty beat up (and shaken up). It's never good to see anyone in that state.\"

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 For the second time in as many games this season, the Augustana men's basketball team's defense started in full throttle.

This time, the Vikings had a nice complementary offense \u2014 paced by junior Pierson Wofford \u2014 to go with it.

As the Vikings held visiting Calvin scoreless for nearly six minutes to open Friday's home debut, the offense matched that latitude for a 16-point lead. Ranked No. 2 nationally, the Vikings showed early signs of that championship form as they never lost that lead en route to a tough 80-69 victory over the Knights.

\u201cI love the way we're starting games,\u201d said Augie coach Grey Giovanine. \u201cThat's really encouraging.\u201d

So was having Wofford back on the court and looking like he never missed a beat. Back with the team this season after being removed by the administration in January for an undisclosed discretion, Wofford was stellar in leading the Vikings with game highs of 22 points and nine rebounds \u2014 six of those on the offensive end.

\u201cHe's playing lights out,\u201d said Giovanine of Wofford. \u201cSix offensive rebounds; he's good when he rebounds. He's really getting after it.\u201d

That effort in the physical battle ended up taking its toll. Wofford left the game with 9:19 left in regulation because of a nasty cramp and didn't return.

But he had already made his mark \u2014 even with fellow starters Chrishawn Orange (18), Dylan Sortillo (15) and Nolan Ebel (10) adding double-digit scoring efforts. All but 10 points were scored by Augie's starting five.

\u201cIt feels great to be back,\u201d said Wofford. \u201cThese are my brothers that I have gone to war with the past two years, and I'm just trying to do anything I can \u2014 to not stand out, but to add on.\u201d

In addition to making the physical plays himself. His presence on the court was also distinguishable, Giovanine saying his example brings more effort out of his teammates. When he went out with the cramp, the Vikings led 66-50.

\u201cWe expected to see a bunch of big, physical guys,\u201d said Wofford. \u201cI thought we battled well. They had a lot of offensive rebounds (11), so that's something we have to get better at.\u201d

With Wofford getting worked on by trainers and Giovanine trying to integrate some fresh faces into the game, Calvin, getting into its season opener after the rough start, cut the lead to 73-64 with 4:13 left. From there, Augie scored seven of the next 10 points to stretch the margin a bit.

Giovanine downplayed Calvin's rally that forced the starters back into the game late.

\u201cThey're an NCAA tournament, team, they're physical and they're good,\u201d said Giovanine of the 0-1 Knights. \u201cI thought it was a good game between two good teams. \u2026 Our top seven or eight guys played really well.\u201d

Two improbable shots from an unlikely shooter in the final minute Friday forced the Black Hawk men\u2019s basketball team to stomach an 82-79 loss to ninth-ranked Lincoln.

Averaging five points per game, Lynx sophomore Isaiah Nelson knocked down two deep 3-point baskets in the final 44 seconds to spoil the Braves' upset bid.

The first came from four feet behind the 3-point arc, erasing a 77-75 Black Hawk lead.

The second came with 11 seconds remaining, two feet deeper than the first and with the Braves\u2019 Corey Freeman in his face on the left wing.

That 81-77 deficit proved to be a margin Black Hawk couldn\u2019t catch although a game-tying 3-point try by Rock Island\u2019s C.J. Neville was online, but hit just enough rim to fall out at the buzzer.

\"I don\u2019t know what else we could have done,\" Braves coach Darren Bizarri said. \"The kid hadn\u2019t shown that at all. We couldn\u2019t have guarded him any better. He just hit a couple of impossible shots when it mattered most. I\u2019d give him those shots every time.\"

The game was the first in a stretch of five straight tests for Black Hawk, four against rated NJCAA Division II teams and a fifth against traditional Division I power Southeastern.

Bizarri hopes hanging with a Lincoln team that moved to 6-0 with Friday\u2019s win can benefit the Braves.

\"I hope our guys walk out of here knowing they can compete with a rated team, that we\u2019re not that far away,\" Bizarri said. \"This is a tough stretch, but it\u2019s designed to force freshmen to grow up a bit on the court and realize that this isn\u2019t Friday in high school anymore. It\u2019s time to step it up.\"

Black Hawk held Lincoln 13 points under its scoring average and was able overcome a 57-44 deficit midway through the second half.

Sophomores Corielle Robinson and Connor Fuller joined Neville in leading a comeback that started with the Braves (3-4) aggressively attacking the basket.

That resulted in either lay-ins or fouls that ultimately allowed Black Hawk to put together a 29-of-34 game at the free-throw line.

Fuller led the Braves with a 24-point, nine-rebound performance that complemented by 22 points from Neville and 19 from Robinson.

TV/radio: FSN; KJOC (1170 AM), KWPC (860 AM)

Storylines: With a victory, Iowa State will finish above .500 in conference play for the first time since 2000. The Cyclones are coming off a heart-breaking 49-42 loss to Oklahoma State in which they gave up 28 points in the second half after allowing only 24 after halftime in their first six Big 12 games. Quarterback Kyle Kempt sat out the second half with an arm injury, and his status for this game is unknown. Baylor\u2019s only victory came two weeks ago at Kansas.

Indiana State (0-10, 0-7) at Northern Iowa (6-4, 5-2)

Basics: 4 p.m., UNI-Dome, Cedar Falls

TV/radio: ESPN3; KGYM (1600 AM)

Storylines: Northern Iowa, ranked No. 24 in this week\u2019s FCS poll, has won four of its past five games. Quarterback Eli Dunne was injured in last Saturday\u2019s 25-10 victory over Missouri State and was replaced by Colton Howell, who passed for 129 yards. Marcus Weymiller also rushed for 131 yards in the win. UNI is now 51-9 under head coach Mark Farley in the month of November. Indiana State not only is winless, it hasn\u2019t been close in Missouri Valley Football Conference play, being outscored 347-87. The Sycamores are giving up 493.4 yards per game.

Illinois (2-8, 0-7) at Ohio State (8-2, 6-1)

Basics: 2:30 p.m., Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

TV/radio: ABC WFXN (1230 AM), WRMJ (102.3 FM), WKEI (1450 AM)

Storylines: Ohio State has won the last seven meetings in the battle for the Illibuck Trophy and is an overwhelming favorite to make it eight. Ohio State needs a win to clinch a share of the Big Ten East title and it will nail down a spot in the Big Ten championship game if Wisconsin beats Michigan. The Buckeyes are third in the country in total offense, fifth in scoring offense. The Illini, who have lost eight straight games, are 121st (out of 129 teams) in the nation in rushing offense, 122nd in passing efficiency and 123rd in total offense. The Illini are also looking at being without their top two quarterbacks for the game. With Cam Thomas (concussion) and Jeff George Jr. (hand) dealing with injuries, Illinois is preparing to return to Chayce Crouch, who started the first four games before being benched and moved to tight end.

Even with all five starters back, including a pair of three-year starters, the Davenport West boys basketball team hasn't garnered much love in the preseason from its peers.

It was selected for the second of seven games at next month's Genesis Shootout. It was not voted in the upper half of the Mississippi Athletic Conference coaches preseason poll.

\"Our kids have a chip on their shoulder, and I think that's a good thing,\" coach Mark Bigler said at Friday's league luncheon hosted by the Davenport Noon Optimist Club at the River Center. \"It's almost an us against the world attitude, and I think it can help us get to that next step.\"

In an informal poll conducted by the coaches, Pleasant Valley was projected to win the league. North Scott was second with Bettendorf and Davenport Assumption in a tie for third, followed by Muscatine and Davenport North.

\"Top to bottom, about every program has a lot back,\" North coach Joe Ewen said. \"It'll make for a very competitive league.\"

The lack of respect for West stems from what has happened recently.

Since claiming the MAC in 2010-11, the Falcons have won more than 10 games in a season just once. They've been 6-17 and 5-18 the past two winters.

West is in position to change that.

With a combination of experience, size and point guard Kenny Clay returning, the Falcons believe they can vie for an upper-half finish.

\"We feel we can match up with anybody with our size and athleticism,\" senior post Brett Erwin said. \"We have the confidence we can play with anybody and be right up there at the top.\"

That confidence comes from what Bigler called a tremendous offseason, the best he could recall since West's last MAC title run.

West traveled across the Midwest playing in various tournaments.

It knocked off Des Moines North, Dubuque Senior and Cedar Rapids Kennedy, all state-ranked teams last year, in summer events.

It finished second at a tournament in Bolingbrook, an event comprised of AAU teams with the exception of West.

In addition to Clay and the 6-foot-8 Erwin (15.3 ppg.), West returns 6-6 wing Trey Sampson (13.1 ppg.), Aaron Gilliland and Bailey Garnica.

West also has experience off the bench with seniors Riley McIntyre, Jalen Smith and Bettendorf transfer Balene Mitchell.

\"We've got great chemistry,\" Sampson said. \"We've been with each other for a very long time. The next step for us is playing together. We had stretches in games we'd either play for ourselves or get down on ourselves.\"

Turnovers, poor foul shooting and a lack of defensive toughness hindered West in stretches a season ago.

The Falcons shot a meager 51.5 percent from the foul line and averaged more than a dozen turnovers in their losses.

In last year's season-ending loss to Bettendorf, West was outscored 30-12 in the third quarter.

\"It is bringing intensity on every play,\" Erwin said. \"If you look at our box scores, there were a lot of games where we were even or won three quarters but had one real bad quarter.\"

\"We were in a lot of games last year, but something would hit us late in the game or we'd hit some adversity and couldn't get over the top,\" Bigler said. \"We really needed to improve our passing. We gave up a lot of easy baskets with our carelessness with the ball up top.\"

West believes the success from the summer can translate this winter.

\"We've got to learn how to win close games,\" Bigler said. \"We need to get some confidence early in the year and build on that.

\"I'm hoping these kids can get rewarded for the work they've put in. It is a great group with great attitudes, good students and ones you don't have to baby-sit. They do the right things every day.\"

Mitch Dettman had already found success in Iowa City with his men's apparel store, The Full Kit, when he decided to expand to downtown Davenport.

The decision not only was a move to return to his hometown with his young family, but also a chance to open up where his target demographics\u00a0\u2014 college-age and young professional men \u2014 were beginning to live, work and play.

\"I wanted to be where the up-and-coming action is, where there was new life being breathed in,\" he recalled.

Since he opened three years ago, more downtown development has followed with additional loft housing in the warehouse district, the opening of The Current Iowa hotel in the Putnam Building, and construction of a future urban campus by Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.

\"I almost felt like we are getting in on the ground floor,\" said Dettman, who can see The Current and the new campus out The Full Kit's front door.

With his select inventory of name brand athletic shoes and clothing from Nike to New Balance, Converse, Vans, Levis, Stussy and Brixton, among others, The Full Kit draws customers from their teens up to age 35 into the store at\u00a0312 N. Main St.\u00a0

But like other retailers today, Dettman knows it's just as important his customers can find him online.\u00a0

With fears of a retail apocalypse \u2014 the disappearance of brick-and-mortar stores from the retail landscape, retailers must find a balance between attracting shoppers through the door and through their mobile devices. But retail experts say the younger generation have not totally abandoned shopping in person. That younger generation, commonly referred to as the Millennials and Gen Zers, might want the convenience of online shopping but they also crave the experience shopping provides.

However, there are exceptions. Jeff and Misty Leach of Davenport have Gen Z daughters who are as different as night and day when it comes to shopping.\u00a0

Madison Leach, 21, said she spends 75 percent of her time shopping in stores and about 25 percent online, which oftentimes is simply research.\u00a0

When it's time to spend money, she said, it's time to head to the store.\u00a0

\"I have to feel the fabric and try things on,\" Madison Leach said.\u00a0

She loves going to the mall because there it's usually one-stop shopping. But there's also the social aspect. \"I always like meeting new people. I'm a hairdresser to it just comes naturally for me to talk to people,\" she added.\u00a0

\"I like spending money,\" Madison Leach said. \"It's fun. And everything catches my eye. If it's pretty and shiny I'll see it, if I've got the money I'll buy it.\"

Speaking of his elder daughter, Jeff Leach, 45, said \"If she'd been born with plastic in her hand, she'd have been happy.\"

Madison's younger sister, Makala, 19, is the opposite. Makala Leach said she will look at things and trying things on, and check the fabric, \"but I don't like to spend money.\"

In fact, Makala said she tends to hoard money.\u00a0

Before she buys just about anything, Makala said she will check things out on the web. \"It all depends on what the reviews say,\" she said.\u00a0

Makala said she has her own style. She knows what she likes and if she likes what she's buying she is not worried about what others think. If she's going to spend money, \"I want value.\"

Their mother Misty, 41, said she used to love to shop, but now does not like all the crowds so she is happy to go online.\u00a0

\"I also want value for my money,\" Misty Leach said. \"But there was a time when I would buy something, wear it once and never see it again.\"

It's not like that now, she said. With two daughters, Misty Leach said she knows how to squeeze a dollar until the eagle screams.

A National Retail Federation survey this fall found that the younger generation is \"actually shopping in stores more than they were a year ago,\" Katherine Cullen,\u00a0the federation's director of retail and consumer insight, said in an interview last week.

The top reasons they will visit a bricks and mortar store, Cullen said is because something new opened near them, because it's a food or entertainment option, or because the store has online/pickup-in-store options.

Cullen said the younger generation is gravitating to retailers where they reserve an item online before they step in the store, she said. They also are attracted to retailers who offer free shipping and quick, even same-day, shipping.\u00a0

\"This is an area where I think smaller local businesses also can benefit. They have the ability to do this quickly as well,\" Cullen said. The key is for small retailers not to over promise and to hire extra staff, if necessary, she said, adding because nothing is worse than having a package arrive Dec. 26.

Attracting shoppers in the age of the web

Across the Quad-Cities, the downtowns, malls and shopping and entertainment districts are hoping to attract not only the younger generation but the entire spectrum of shoppers as the holiday shopping season kicks into full gear this week with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and for some, Thanksgiving Day shopping hours.\u00a0

Downtown advocates say the name of the game is cooperation among merchants and increased awareness of the mostly homegrown retailers.

\"Literally, there is no shop that is not locally owned,\" said Kyle Carter, executive director of the Downtown Davenport Partnership. He rattled off newer retailers such as The Full Kit, Abernathy's, Crafted QC, Endless Brews, as well as the seasoned veterans, Ragged Records and Trash Can Annie.

\"We certainly have a critical mass (of stores) down here, but our Achilles' heel is the distance between all of them,\" Carter said. \"If they were all in one block, you wouldn't hear people saying 'there is no shopping in downtown.' If we had one or two blocks where all those were jammed together, the perception of shopping in downtown would be fundamentally different.\"\u00a0

Moline Centre, the Main Street district in downtown Moline, also benefits from a plethora of unique, locally owned shops which are \"becoming more and more popular with Millennials,\" said Adam Holland, Moline Center's director. In fact, he said some 10 new businesses have opened in the past year, including many in the food and beverage business, which is downtown's strength. \"With the exception of Subway and TGI Friday, we have all locally owned, non-franchised stores.\"\u00a0

Holland said Moline has been successful in forging more of a neighborhood feel among its merchants. \"It's interesting the collaborations the businesses are making with one another,\" he said.

For example, shop merchants regularly recommend other stores to their customers. It also is a cooperative culture, where the businesses help one another with new ideas at their monthly merchants meeting. \"It's an opportunity for local merchants to get together, see what's working, what's not and learn what opportunities might be coming up. It's really served as a conduit to new ideas,\" he said, adding that the Holiday Hop event, held two days ago, was born out of those meetings.

More than 40 businesses opened their doors Friday night to build on the already successful Lighting on the Commons event, which was Saturday night.

The merchants take turns hosting the meetings, in part, to showcase their store to their fellow merchants. \"You might have someone who has never been in a different business and it opens their eyes to what they have down the street,\" Holland added. \"Owning a small business is a challenging endeavor. If you're a small business, it can be difficult to get away.\"\u00a0

While the outlook for this year's holiday shopping season is looking merry and bright, businesses still are keeping an eye on in-store sales compared to the web.\u00a0

Kathleen Collins, manager-buyer for her family's business, Kitchens, located in NorthPark Mall in Davenport, said they don't have online sales, although the store has a Facebook page.\u00a0

There are three other stores with one in Naples, Florida, Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and Branson, Missouri.\u00a0

Online competition has had an effect on in-store sales, but there is a way to combat the web.\u00a0

\"Our sales are affected a little more each year by online sales,\" Collins said. \"Every year in-store sales go down just a little bit.\"

Collins combats the web, she said, by \"providing the best customer service possible.\" Of course, as all businesses she keeps an eye on expenses. But Collins said that she and her staff make sure customers are met with answers to any questions.\u00a0

\"There are people who will research the web and then come in the store to either buy the product or get more answers,\" she said. \"When people need an explanation about a product they want to talk to someone who has used it or knows something about it. They want the customer service.\"

Dennis Gilliam is the property manager for both NorthPark and SouthPark malls in the Quad-Cities, which are gearing up for what they hope will be a healthy Black Friday weekend.\u00a0 Like last year, the mall is starting the weekend with shopping on Thanksgiving Day. Hours will be 6 p.m. to midnight on Thanksgiving and then the mall will reopen at 6 a.m. Black Friday.

He said the mall's retailers have strong expectations for the holidays.

\"It's going to be a fun year because I think retail sales are expected to be up more than in the last 10 years,\" said Gilliam, who has 33 years in the retail industry.

He is not worried about the retail apocalypse at the hands of online shopping. \"We're morphing into a different type of retail.\"

Most brick-and-mortar stores have an online presence, but now the online retailers are considering bricks and mortar stores of their own, he said.\u00a0

\"We're working consistently to get these online stores into bricks and mortar stores,\" Gilliam added. \"We continue to change and evolve, and when that happens everything good comes from it.\"

He also is confident about the holiday season. \"I think people are freer with their money because they feel confident. I do think we all feel a little better knowing regulations are going down, and the possibility of a tax break in the next year is wonderful. You start hearing good things and it makes you feel better whether it's true or not,\" Gilliam added.

FIVE THINGS TO WATCH

Nate Stanley\u2019s response: The Hawkeyes\u2019 sophomore quarterback endured his first struggle-filled performance at Wisconsin last week, completing a season-low 8-of-24 passes for 41 yards and being dropped four times for losses of 37 yards. Stanley is a game captain for the first time in his career this week as he works to craft a bounce-back performance.

Purdue\u2019s defensive work: After giving up 42.6 points in Big Ten play on average last season, the Boilermakers have allowed 19.1 this fall. Purdue\u2019s recent success has been centered on stopping the run, holding its last three opponents to less than 100 rushing yards in an effort led by 9.5 tackles for a loss apiece from tackle Gelen Robinson and linebacker Ja\u2019Whaun Bentley.

Third-down situations: Can Iowa improve on third down? It has nowhere to go but up after going 0-for-13 last weekend at Wisconsin. First and second down is the key for the Hawkeyes, who needed five yards or less just three times against the Badgers and were saddled with third-and-10 or greater situations five times, handcuffing the offense.

Elijah Sindelar\u2019s arm: The 6-foot-4 sophomore will start his sixth game at quarterback for Purdue, returning to the lineup a week ago after David Blough suffered a dislocated ankle. Sindelar threw the ball 60 times last week at Northwestern, completing 37 of them for 376 yards and two touchdowns. The Boilermakers feature a short passing attack led by depth at receiver, including seven players with 17 or more catches.

Josh Jackson\u2019s three-peat: After dominating performances the past two weeks \u2014 three interceptions against Ohio State and two more that were returned for touchdowns against Wisconsin \u2014 Iowa\u2019s junior cornerback looks to build on that work against a Purdue passing attack that averages 246.4 yards per game. With Amani Hooker doubtful and Manny Rugamba questionable, the Hawkeyes\u2019 secondary will be tested.

IOWA CITY \u2014 One look at the tape was all it took.

Iowa football players understand that this isn\u2019t the same Purdue team they literally ran all over a year ago, piling up 365 yards on the ground and scoring on five of six first-half possessions in a 49-35 win that wasn\u2019t as close as the final score indicated.

\"They\u2019re a different team, completely different,\" said Iowa defensive tackle Nathan Bazata, one of 18 Hawkeye seniors who will be honored today prior to the 2:30 p.m. kickoff of the final home game of the season at Kinnick Stadium.

\"We saw how they played Wisconsin. We know how we played Wisconsin. They have our attention.\"

The Boilermakers gave the unbeaten Badgers team which manhandled the Hawkeyes 38-14 last week the closest game they have played this season, a 17-9 game that wasn\u2019t decided until the final possession.

A two-point loss at Rutgers and a one-point loss to Nebraska have left Purdue on the frustrating end of a 4-6 record, competitive but not quite able to finish top opponents off during coach Jeff Brohm\u2019s first season.

The Boilermakers have had their moments beyond the Badgers since losing an energy-filled season opener to Louisville, which set an aggressive tone that is changing the culture of Purdue's program.

\"We\u2019ve kind of hit a lull since we started the Big Ten schedule, but I do think we have gotten better,\" Brohm said. \"We still have a long ways to go, but the attitude has been good, and they understand where they need to get better.\"

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz believes that is already happening.

He points to the Boilermakers\u2019 defense and what he calls the team\u2019s \"real aggressive attitude\" as examples.

Purdue has not allowed an opponent to score more than two touchdowns in its last six games, dating to a 28-10 loss to Michigan on Sept. 23, and after surrendering 42.6 points per game last season the Boilermakers are giving up 19.1 on average this year.

That improvement has started with stopping the run, something Iowa never got started in its most recent game.

Purdue has held its last three opponents \u2014 Nebraska, Illinois and Northwestern \u2014 to fewer than 100 rushing yards.

\"They haven\u2019t been good enough (in recent seasons) on defense to win consistently, but they\u2019re playing at a really high level right now, not giving up a lot points, which is the most important thing,\" Ferentz said.

Iowa rushed 26 times for a total of 25 yards last week at Wisconsin, the fourth time this season the Hawkeyes have finished with fewer than 100 yards and something that has led to a defeat in each of those games.

\"We\u2019ve got to get it going again,\" Iowa running back Akrum Wadley said. \"That\u2019s on all of us. Purdue\u2019s better. They\u2019re doing some good things, but we need to play our game, get back to that.\"

The Boilermakers\u2019 defense typically utilizes a four-man front but incorporates plenty of blitzing and additional looks that will challenge the Hawkeyes\u2019 offense.

\"Their whole team is very multiple. Offensively, defensively, special teams, you have to prepare for a lot of things,\" Ferentz said. \"They\u2019re very diverse, and you\u2019re not sure what you\u2019re going to get week to week.\"

As a senior, Wadley doesn\u2019t see motivation as an issue.

\"I want to walk off of that field one last time with a win,\" he said. \"That\u2019s how I want to end it.\"

It is one of the lasting images from the U.S. Open.

Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens, close friends and competitors, locked in an embrace at center court at Arthur Ashe Stadium, moments after Stephens bested the Rock Island native 6-3, 6-0 in the women's final in September for the first Grand Slam title in her career.

Genuine, heartfelt, unforgettable.

\"Sloane and I have been friends forever,\" Keys said. \"So she was just being a really great friend in a moment where she had just achieved this amazing accomplishment, but she took a couple minutes out of feeling that way and just helped a friend out in a really tough time and just lent her support and gave me a little bit of a pep talk before I had to go talk in front of everyone.

\"It was everything that I needed.\"

It is moments like those that make Keys' involvement with FearlesslyGiRL\u00a0\u2014 an anti-bullying organization based in Canada\u00a0\u2014 all the more resonant.

\"I feel like I almost learned more about her, seeing how she dealt with that loss. That moment between her and Sloane was so beautiful,\" said Kate Whitfield, the founder of FearlesslyGiRL. \"That's exactly what Madison and I talk about when it comes to creating a girl world.

\"We want more moments like that, where even if you lose, even if you give it your all and are really disappointed, you can still be genuinely happy for your friend. Even if you win, you can still take a moment to be genuinely supportive of your friend.\"

Keys and Whitfield spent Friday morning at Augustana College, leading an assembly that was part of a three-day summit that officially launched the nonprofit's presence in the U.S.

In addition to the morning assembly, Keys took part in a pro-am Thursday night at the Quad-City Tennis Club in Moline. The group also hosted a FearlesslyGiRL Gala on Friday night at Rhythm City Casino in Davenport and will hold a clinic for junior players and a workshop for parents this morning at the Moline tennis club.

Keys and Whitfield co-hosted a summit last November at Rock Island High School, but Friday was on another level, with approximately 250 girls from 10 Quad-City area high schools in attendance and another 7,000 watching the event online.

\"That right there was why I wanted to get involved,\" Keys said. \"I feel like we just made the world a little bit better today. Even if it was just girl world, we made it a little bit better today, and that was the whole point behind this.\"

Keys signed on as an ambassador with FearlesslyGiRL last year and has been a public advocate against cyberbullying, something she knows about first hand, an unfortunate side effect that too often comes with being a public figure.

\"I've been getting it since the first day I signed up for Twitter and Instagram,\" she said. \"It's obviously worse after matches that I lose, and for the longest time I would just stay silent about it, not do anything, not say anything.\"

Eventually, Keys realized she could use her platform as one of the top tennis players in the world\u00a0\u2014 she's currently 19th on the Women's Tennis Association rankings\u00a0\u2014 to bring light to the darkness that pervades social media.

\"I would go into press conferences and say, 'I just got six horrible messages and there was a death threat and all these things,' and people would be like, 'Wow, really?,'\" Keys said.

\"People don't even understand what a lot of athletes and celebrities, and even girls, are on the receiving end of. So I thought it was my responsibility to shine a light on it and make it more known.\"

Whitfield founded FearlesslyGiRL in 2011, and getting the involvement of someone with the profile of Keys\u00a0\u2014 who enjoyed a breakthrough when she made the semifinals in the 2015 Australian Open\u00a0\u2014 has helped her dream of empowering young women immensely.

\"It's changed everything. I was plugging away at this for years up in Canada, really trying to work out the kinks and create a program that was really effective, that wasn't just a band-aid for a bullet wound,\" Whitfield said. \"Madison came on board at the perfect time to launch it in such a big way and be this perfect ambassador for the program.\"

Since that summit at Rock Island last year, the organization continues to grow, as does the message.

The Rocky Riveters, an extra-curricular club at Rock Island High School focused on educating students on women in politics, sports, history and many other fields, received board approval in February. The group was at the assembly Friday, presenting Keys with a shirt with the logo emblazoned on the front.

Keys wore the shirt proudly, that genuine nature showcased on center court back in September once again at the forefront of the day.

\"I definitely found that tennis for me is something that makes me a lot more self confident in all aspects of my life,\" she said. \"I definitely encourage all girls to be active. ... It doesn't even have to be a sport, just something you're very passionate about and you feel really good about. I think if you find that thing and you put all your time and energy into it, you will feel more confident in a lot of different aspects of your life.\"

IOWA CITY \u2014 Iowa opened its wrestling season in dominating fashion Friday, scoring bonus points in 20 of the 27 wins it recorded while sweeping three opponents at the Iowa City Duals.

The Hawkeyes followed a season-opening 48-0 rout of Iowa Central with a 33-6 win over Buffalo and a 38-6 victory over North Dakota State in front of a crowd of 6,786 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Iowa won six matches by pin and seven by technical fall while piling up a 103-8 advantage in takedowns against its three opponents.

\"On the bottom we were strong, and on top, that has to be fun watching that many back points,\" coach Tom Brands said. \"Our footwork in the neutral position made it easier for us in other positions, and we were wrestling hard the entire match.\"

Brands called the sweep a starting point for a team that saw returning all-Americans Brandon Sorensen and Michael Kemerer collect bonus points in each of their three victories.

Sorensen won by pin, technical fall and major decision at 149 pounds while Kemerer at 157 pinned his first two opponents before scoring a 17-2 technical fall over 14th-rated Clay Ream of North Dakota in 4 minutes, 40 seconds.

The pair joined Vince Turk at 141, Kaleb Young at 165, Joey Gunther at 174, Mitch Bowman at 184, Cash Wilcke at 197 and heavyweight Sam Stoll at 285 in opening the season with three wins.

Bowman, a junior from North Scott, scored a takedown in the final minute to erase a 4-3 deficit and beat North Dakota State\u2019s Tyler McNutt 5-4 in his final match of the day.

He rallied for the victory after opening the season with a first-period pin and a 10-4 decision.

Paul Glynn, a sophomore 133-pounder from Bettendorf, was one of four Hawkeyes to make their Carver-Hawkeye Arena debuts Friday.

He lost his only match of the day, allowing a late-escape and giving up a point for riding time in a 2-0 loss to fifth-ranked Bryan Lantry of Buffalo.

Iowa\u2019s other two losses came at 125, where Justin Stickley won by technical fall, lost an 8-4 decision and was pinned as he became the first true freshman to compete for the Hawkeyes since Nathan Burak competed during the 2012-13 season.

In their first Carver-Hawkeye appearances, Turk claimed three bonus-points wins at 141 and Young scored a technical fall and a major decision before beating 20th-rated Andrew Fogarty of North Dakota State, 3-2.

Cordell Eaton, a North Dakota State sophomore from North Scott, dropped a 5-3 decision at 197 to the Hawkeyes' Wilcke.

Three convicted in federal attempted robbery, gun case

Three Rock Island County men have been convicted in connection with an attempted armed robbery at a Rock Island home in January.

Deaunta Tyler, 30, and Dalvent Jackson, 25, both of East Moline, and Ledell Tyler, 36, of Silvis, were convicted Wednesday in U.S. District Court, Rock Island,\u00a0on charges of\u00a0attempted robbery, discharging a firearm in furtherance of the attempted robbery, and being felons in possession of firearms.

They will be sentenced March 13. They face up to 30 years in prison on the attempted robbery and felon in possession of a firearm charges and a mandatory minimum of 10 years to life in prison for discharging a firearm in furtherance of the attempted robbery, to be served consecutive to any other sentence imposed for the underlying offenses.

Evidence at trial shows that on the night of Jan. 7, the three men invaded a family home in Rock Island in search of drugs.

During the attempted robbery, they threatened to shoot various occupants of the home, including two pregnant women and several young children.

Trial evidence also showed that one of the men discharged a firearm during the robbery to further intimidate the victims.

About five hours after the attempted robbery, Rock Island police officers arrested the men after they fled from a traffic stop and crashed their vehicle.

The U.S. 52-Illinois 64 bridge over the Mississippi River connecting Savanna, Illinois, and Sabula, Iowa, opened to traffic Friday.

\u201cThe new Savanna-Sabula bridge greatly improves safety, better connects our communities and strengthens commerce in an important part of our state,\u201d Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn said in a news release. \u201cThe new design is modern and eye-catching, but the biggest benefits will be enhanced quality of life and more economic opportunity for a vital gateway into Illinois.\u201d

The new bridge is more than 2,400 feet long and 40 feet across with two wider lanes and shoulders. Construction on the new bridge began in 2015 with its main focal point being the main span, a steel tied-arch over the river.

\u201cThis bridge will bring new economic opportunities to both of our communities. I hope to see an increase in commercial traffic as well as tourism,\u201d Savanna Mayor Chris Lain said. \u201cThis project has been a nice boost to our local economy, with all the workers stay in and enjoying our beautiful town.\"

The Illinois Department of Transportation was the lead agency on the project with Illinois and Iowa sharing jurisdiction. The previous bridge opened in 1932 as a private toll bridge and will be dismantled and removed in the spring. It was deemed a safety concern because, at 20 feet across, it was considered too narrow for bicycles and vehicles for disabled motorists.

Despite a 4-6 season, there was no shortage of recognition for the St. Ambrose football team.

Twelve total players received all-Midwest League honors as the Mid-States Football Association announced its postseason awards Friday.

Defensive ends Chris Overton and Grant Wallace and kicker Kenny Rowe were named to the first team. Six other Bees were named to the second team and three more earned honorable mention recognition.

Overton, a senior from Springfield, Illinois, led NAIA with 14.5 sacks this season, a single-season school record. Of his 48 tackles, 21 were for loss, the second-highest mark in the country, and he also forced three fumbles.

In his career, Overton compiled 163 tackles, 44.5 for loss, and 17.5 sacks.

Wallace, a senior from Springfield, had 11.5 tackles for loss and five sacks this season. In his career, Wallace recorded 76 tackles, 18.5 for loss, and six sacks.

Rowe, a senior also from Springfield, made 9 of 12 field goals this year, including a 53-yarder, the second-longest field goal made by a Bee. It was just short of Brian Hanssen's 54-yard kick in 1999. Rowe finished second in the conference in both field goals made and field goal percentage (.750). He was also successful on 29 of 33 extra point attempts.

In his career, Rowe kicked 17 field goals and was 59 of 66 on PATs.

Quarterback Jake Romani, wide receiver Chase Ferger, tight end Eli Petty, offensive lineman Austin Benckendorf, linebacker Dillon Valdez and defensive back Jake Platt were named to the second team.

Offensive lineman Zach Gadbury, defensive lineman Servando Duran and defensive back Kobe Easley were named honorable mention.

Lexus Jackson, a wide receiver at the University of St. Francis (Ill.), was voted by the league's coaches as the top offensive performer while Tionte McDaniel, a sophomore defensive back at league champion Saint Xavier, was named defensive player of the year.

Saint Xavier's Mike Feminis was named coach of the year while his defensive coordinator Bill McKeon was named assistant coach of the year.

The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday reversed an appellate court decision to reverse the conviction and order a new trial for a Muscatine County man in a 2014 drug case.

The issue at hand in the State of Iowa v. Carlos Ariel Gomez Garcia is whether a trial court judge abused its discretion by requiring a standby interpreter over his objection.

Garcia, 26, a native of Honduras, was charged in Muscatine County District Court with delivery of cocaine in December 2014.

He is able to read and understand the English language and sought to waive the assistance of court interpreters at his trial, according to court records.

According to court documents,\u00a0Garcia believed that the presence of interpreters would be distracting and confusing to him and could be unfairly prejudicial to him during a jury trial.

District Court Judge Stuart Werling instructed standby interpreters to provide real-time translation, but told\u00a0Garcia that he could remove the wireless earpiece if he no longer wanted to use their translation services, according to court documents.

Garcia then waived his right to a jury trial and opted for a bench trial. The judge ultimately found him guilty on the drug charge and he was sentenced in September 2015 to up to 10 years in prison.

He appealed and argued that he adequately showed the judge his ability to read and understand the English language and that the presence of interpreters in the courtroom would have obstructed his right to a fair trial and would unfairly prejudice the jury against him.

The Iowa Court of Appeals in November 2016 determined that the trial court erred in refusing to accept\u00a0Garcia's waiver of interpreter services and reversed his convictions and ordered a new trial.

The state argued on further review before the Iowa Supreme Court that improperly denying a waiver of interpreter services does not fundamentally affect the fairness of the proceedings and does not warrant automatic reversal of a criminal conviction.

\u201cWe conclude the district court properly balanced the goal of ensuring a fair trial while accommodating in part Gomez Garcia\u2019s request to waive the interpreter on the morning of trial,\u201d according to the supreme court opinion released Friday. \u201cThe district court chose a reasonable middle ground by ensuring that Gomez Garcia had access to translation services, even if he elected not to use them.\u201d

The Scott County Board of Supervisors suspended the rules and voted to amend the fireworks ordinance on second reading at Thursday\u2019s regular meeting.

\u201cThis is the same language in the ordinance passed by the cities of Davenport, Bettendorf and Eldridge,\u201d Supervisor Brinson Kinzer said. \u201cThe smaller communities in the county are looking to us for guidance.\u201d

The amended county ordinance takes effect in time for New Year\u2019s Eve celebrations as recommended by County Administrator Mahesh Sharma at Tuesday\u2019s committee-of-the-whole meeting. The ordinance limits consumer fireworks displays on the night of Dec. 31 from 10 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., and\u00a0on\u00a0Jan. 1\u00a0and July 3-4 from 2\u00a0to 11 p.m.

In other business, supervisors unanimously voted no on the first of two readings of an ordinance to rezone 6.56 acres located at 25820 162nd Ave. from Agricultural-Preservation to Agricultural-General. The application by owners Lori and Joseph Cawiezel would have been the first step toward plans to build a second home on the property.

\u201cI am opposed to any rezoning from agriculture preservation to agriculture general in the absence of being annexed to a city,\u201d Supervisor Diane Holst told the property owners in attendance at the meeting.

\u201cAlthough it is possible to rezone agricultural general to residential, this ordinance does not do what you really want it to do,\u201d Supervisor Ken Beck said.

County staff and the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended supervisors deny the application on grounds that it did not meet county land use policies intended to curb urban sprawl by preventing the construction of additional houses on land zoned for agricultural use.

After Allen Bertsche, raised Lutheran, and Laurie Bertsche, raised as a United Methodist, married in 1999, the couple decided they should try to find a religious community they would feel comfortable in.

\"We started with Methodist churches, and then a few Lutheran churches. None of them felt like a good fit for us,\" Allen Bertsche said.

The couple finally explored an online test on faith to discover they had much in common. Both had beliefs close to Quakers, or to Unitarian Universalism. In the end, they found a home at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad-Cities, Davenport.

Bertsche spoke about his faith from his office at Augustana College, Rock Island, where he runs the Study Abroad program.

His desk is situated between two reproduction paintings: \"Madrid,\" by El Greco, a painting of a man who looks pious and proper; and \"The Drowning Dog\" by Goya.

Those two remind Bertsche how to work with students in the program; he needs to be a face of calm, managing problems and issues, like the man painted by El Greco, and he should respond to those who need help, like the dog in the work by Goya.

Q: Tell me about yourself?

The 50-year-old was born and raised on Long Island, New York. He moved to the Midwest to attend Indiana University, Bloomington.

Indiana offered Bertsche, who is bilingual and the grandson of Spanish immigrants, 110 languages and a strong overseas study program. He earned his advanced degree at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

He moved to the Quad-Cities in 1996 to teach Spanish at Augustana, and subsequently got the job in the college's Study Abroad program. He also met and married his wife.

He is now chairman of the board at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad-Cities, 3707 Eastern Ave., Davenport.\u00a0

Q: Where you raised in the faith?

No, both Allen and Laura were raised in a mainline religion but began to question the faiths. Specifically, while Bertsche believes the Bible contains much insight and truth, he does not believe it is the only source of truth.

He has traveled the world and has come to respect other faiths, he said.

One thing about the\u00a0Unitarian Universalism, most people in the congregation are not born into the faith, he said. \"Often members purposely looked for a change from what they were raised in,\" he said.

Q: What drew you to Unitarian Universalism?

The Bertsches decided to check out the Davenport congregation, but it took them a few months to feel comfortable. \"There is so much variation from week-to-week and month-to-month, it takes a while to get a sense of what is at the core of this group,\" he said.

To help, they took \"Introduction to Unitarian Universalist\" classes from the minister, and they enjoyed \"get-to-know-you\" activities the congregation offers. They officially joined in 2004.

Not long after that, Allen Bertsche got involved with the religious services team, which is tasked with doing the service when the minister is out of town. As an educator, Bertsche is comfortable speaking in public, and he enjoys filling in for sermons.

This meant he explores a topic he is interested in, and prepares a sermon on it. \"I like doing the exploring part, and I liked getting feedback from others,\" he said.

In addition, there are adult continuing education classes, such as on the intersections between world religions. Bertsche put one together himself, on how art is an expression of faith.

What he also likes is the congregation's emphasis on social justice issues. He and Laurie got involved with working on the Quad-City Pride Festival, and with individuals in the LGBTQ population.

Q: How did your family react to your faith?

There was some initial confusion in Bertsche's family. His father was told by a Lutheran minister that Unitarian Universalism was for pagans and witches (not solely) and his sister thought it was a form of Judaism (no).

There are many faiths involved in Unitarian Universalism. \"We don't tell you what your beliefs should be,\" he said. \"We don't have a Creed, and that's big.\"

In the end, Bertsche's father was simply glad he was attending church regularly, and Laurie Bertsche's United Methodist family was supportive from the start.

Q: What else should we know about your faith?

\"It's all about asking questions, and the journey,\" Bertsche said.\u00a0

The Davenport congregation has a strong youth education program, and a growing part of it is young families.

Unitarian Universalism, across the country, tends to include more highly educated and slightly more affluent individuals than others, he said. It includes teachers, scientists, folks in the arts.

\"It's never a problem to ask questions. One believes in the inherent worth and dignity in any person. That's respecting everyone, regardless of who they are, and where they come from,\" Bertsche said.

Unitarian Universalist congregations tend to be located in college towns, and Bertsche has visited others, in Iowa City, Madison and Oak Park, Illinois, which was designed by a member, famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

It's hard to get into a\u00a0Unitarian Universalist congregation without soon hearing about the prestigious members of the faith, such as presidents, authors and noted scientists, he said.

Q: Online?

The\u00a0Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad-Cities is online: uucqc.org

There is also a Facebook page, and the minister, Jay Wolin, is active on Facebook. There is an Instagram account, and the faith is on YouTube, where services are streamed.

Closed in the 1970s, the Potosi Brewery was a wreck.

According to the president of the southwest Wisconsin village where it\u2019s located, it deteriorated so badly that looked like a \u201cbombed out building in a war torn country.\u201d

But in 2008, the brewery reopened after a $7.5 million restoration and is now home to a pub, restaurant, national brewery museum and other touristy offerings. Frank Fiorenza, the village president who spoke Friday at Augustana College, credited local initiative, commitment and collaboration for bringing the brewery back to life and giving the small town a tourist draw.

\u201cThere is hope, even for small communities,\u201d Fiorenza said.

Fiorenza was the keynote speaker at the 4th annual economic summit hosted by Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill. The summit is aimed at sharing ideas to promote growing local economies, and Bustos said this year's theme was collaboration.

\u201cIt takes a collaborative, regional approach to bring about success,\u201d she said, adding Potosi, whose population is about 700, is an example of that virtue.

A lot of small Midwest towns\u00a0\u2014 along with many of their larger neighbors\u00a0\u2014 have struggled to maintain their population and economic base. In some cases, leveraging unique assets have yielded success stories. Rock Island Mayor Mike Thoms said there are examples in the Quad-Cities of trying to that very thing. He pointed to the attempt to convert the old fire station near Douglas Park into a football museum. The park is said to be the site of the first game to be played in the predecessor to the National Football League.

\u201cIf it can happen with a town of 750 people surrounded by other larger cities, it can happen in Rock Island, Illinois,\u201d Thoms said.

In Potosi, Fiorenza said $4.8 million was raised for the effort, without about half coming from foundations and government grants, while a $2 million loan also was secured. The brewery is run by a non-profit foundation.

The economic development summits originated in Bustos\u2019 first congressional run, in 2011. She said that regional meetings leading up to Friday's roughly three-hour session impressed upon her the importance of collaboration. Panel discussions Friday featured that theme, with discussions centering on finding opportunities to address workforce challenges through partnerships with education, as well as improving regional infrastructure through coordination.

Just like the turkey leftovers, the biggest shopping weekend of the year will stretch through the entire Thanksgiving weekend and into Cyber Monday.

An annual survey by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics forecasts that 69 percent of all Americans \u2014 or an estimated 164 million people \u2014 are planning to shop or are considering shopping over the holiday weekend.\u00a0

\"In general, we're seeing strong signals for the holiday season,\" Katherine Cullen, the federation's director of retail and consumer insight, said.

On average, consumers will spend $967 this holiday season on gifts, decorations, foods and treating themselves, she said. \"It's a little lower in the Midwest, $912, which is typical.\"

The federation is projecting holiday spending to rise between 3.6 percent and 4.0 percent in November and December, Cullen added. \"This trends with what we've seen over the last year. Consumers are feeling good about themselves, the economy and that's translating into stocking up on the holiday season.\"

Cullen said the latest survey marks the first time the shopping statistics have included Cyber Monday in addition to Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Sunday. \"In the past, we would have looked at individual days ... This one looks at how many plan to shop over the entire Thanksgiving weekend.\"

Some of the survey's findings include:

The survey also showed that 56 percent of Americans have already begun their holiday shopping, but most have a long way to go. Only 12 percent have completed at least half of the shopping, while just 2 percent are already done.

The survey questioned 7,439 consumers about their shopping plans during the period from Oct. 31 to Nov. 7.

Of those surveyed, 31 percent said they will refrain from any shopping over the Thanksgiving weekend. Of those not planning to participate, 52 percent say it is because they do not enjoy the experience and 51 percent say they never shop during Thanksgiving weekend.

\"The one thing we saw too is that even of those consumers who said they are not planning to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend, more than half said something could convince them to go shopping,\" Cullen said.

A second teen charged with beating and robbing a 47-year-old man last month will be tried in adult court as a youthful offender, a juvenile court judge ruled this week.

Doryan Phynell Jackson, 14, made an initial appearance Friday morning in Scott County District Court on charges of first-degree robbery, willful injury causing serious injury, and assault while participating in a felony.

He also faces charges of second-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit a non-forcible felony, unlawful possession of a prescription drug, a serious misdemeanor, and possession of a controlled substance, also a serious misdemeanor, in unrelated cases.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. Bond was set at $30,000 cash or surety.

As a youthful offender, Jackson will be tried in adult court, but if convicted, he would be under the supervision of the juvenile court until he turns 18. The case then would be remanded to adult court, where a judge would determine whether to impose a sentence or discharge him, among other sentencing options.

Associate Judge Cheryl Traum wrote in an order filed Thursday that she considered several factors, such as the prior services he has received through the juvenile court system, multiple suspensions from school and allegations of criminal activity while at school, when deciding to transfer the case out of juvenile court.

\"The Court concludes that no reasonable prospect for rehabilitation exists if the Court were to retain jurisdiction\" she wrote in the order.

The judge made the same ruling earlier this week in the case of his co-defendant, Christopher M. Shadrick, 13, and granted prosecutors\u2019 request to try him, too, as a youthful offender.

Around 11 p.m. Oct. 12, Lester Norton, 47, was walking his bicycle on the Davenport bike path, the Duck Creek Trail Parkway, near Hickory Grove and Hillandale roads.

Shadrick and Jackson knocked him over and tried to steal his bike, according to police.

When Norton tried to stand up, the teens began hitting and kicking him and stole his cellphone and sweatshirt, according to police.

Norton was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport; police were called to the hospital at 11:30 p.m.

He has since been released from the hospital.

According to court documents, Jackson and Shadrick burglarized a home and stole a cellphone the same day as the assault on Norton.

Shadrick the next day also possessed Clonazepa, a controlled substance for which he did not have a prescription, according to court documents.

Four things that can position the football teams from Iowa and Purdue for success in Saturday's 2:30 p.m. game at Kinnick Stadium:

Purdue (4-6, 2-5)

1. Play like your hair is on fire

This game is essentially Purdue's season.

Win it, the bowl hopes are alive and well heading into a season finale against Indiana.

Lose it, start thinking ahead to 2018 and do what you can next week to reclaim the Old Oaken Bucket, the traveling trophy that has been presented to the winner of that in-state rivalry since 1925. Indiana has won it the last four seasons.

First-year coach Jeff Brohm has reinvigorated the Purdue program and fan base, not an easy task. From the energy it brought against a then-rated Louisville team in the season open to a 35-3 rout of a Missouri team now chasing its own bowl berth, the Boilermakers have brought it every week this season.

An influx of more than a dozen transfers - junior college, graduate and traditional - has changed the culture of the program and Iowa can expect to face a very different Boilermaker team.

2. D it like you mean it

The biggest difference in this Purdue team can be found on the defensive side of the ball.

The Boilermakers will line-up with a four-man front most of the time, but expect Purdue to be active against an Iowa front five which was unable to give quarterback Nate Stanley adequate protection last week at Wisconsin.

Purdue is 19th in the country in scoring defense and has allowed opponents to reach the end zone no more than twice in any of its last six games. Michigan was the last team to accomplish that, using a second-half surge to put 28 on the board in an 18-point win on Sept. 23.

The Boilermakers have also held their last three opponents - Nebraska, Illinois at Northwestern - to fewer than 100 rushing yards.

Linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley is the middle of it all. He leads Purdue with 81 tackles and shares the team lead with 9.5 tackles for a loss. He'll work to be Akrum Wadley and James Butler's worst nightmare.

Defensive tackle Gelen Robinson also has 9.5 tackles for a loss and the son of former Boilermaker basketball great Glenn Robinson can move his 6-foot-1, 280-pound body.

Purdue has recorded 58 tackles for a loss this season, including five sacks by Markus Bailey at linebacker and four from Danny Ezechukwu from his end position.

3. Fill the air with footballs

Winds expected in the 20-to-30 miles-per-hour range are expected on a raw November day at Kinnick Stadium, but the Boilermakers won't be bashful about putting the ball in the air.

Quarterback Elijah Sindelar threw it 60 times last week in a 23-13 loss at Northwestern, completing 37 for 376 yards and two touchdowns.

The 6-4 sophomore is expected to make his sixth start of the season, his second since a dislocated ankle ended David Blough's season. He's thrown for 1,315 yards, including nine touchdown passes and six interceptions.

Much like Iowa, Purdue's passing game has been more horizontal than vertical this season, but the Boilermakers have depth with seven receivers with 16 or more catches on the year.

Jackson Anthrop, a West Lafayette native, leads the way with 37 catches, but Purdue is putting the ball in the hands of its tight ends frequently.

Starter Cole Herdman averages 17.8 yards on 16 catches while back-up Bryson Hopkins, the son of Moline native and former Illinois all-American and 13-year NFL vet Brad Hopkins has caught 20 passes and averaged 15.2 yards per grab during his sophomore year.

4. Win the field position game

As Iowa struggles to return punts - the Hawkeyes haven't attempted a return in two weeks - opposing punters have been giving Iowa fits with their legs recently.

Wisconsin's Anthony Lotti delivered 58 and 62 yard punts last week that helped the Badgers with the field position game against an Iowa offense which took three snaps in its own territory.

Purdue has a punter capable of creating issues as well.

Joe Schopper averages a modest 41.4 yards per punt - 10th among Big Ten punters - but has dropped 20 of his 53 punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line and has sent 13 punts 50 yards or more.

After watching a pair of punts skip more than 15 yards beyond the return man last week, coach Kirk Ferentz has said there could be a lineup change this week.

Iowa is currently ninth in the Big Ten in punt returns, averaging 6.3 yards.

Iowa (6-4, 3-4)

1. Establish the run

It starts up front, as usual, and as Iowa saw last week when it finished with 25 yards on 26 carries the lack of a ground game can be lethal.

The Hawkeyes have totaled fewer than 100 yards on the ground four times this season and has lost all four of those games.

Iowa averages 131.4 yards per game on the ground for the year - 110.6 in Big Ten play - while Purdue is surrendering 139.4 rushing yards and has given up fewer than 100 yards on the ground it its last three games.

The ability of Iowa to gain some traction against a Purdue looms large.

Seniors Akrum Wadley and James Butler have combined for 1,074 yards on the ground this season and Wadley enters the Boilermakers' game 216 yards shy of becoming the first Hawkeye to run for 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons since Fred Russell.

2. Get downright defensive

Wisconsin pulled away from the Hawkeyes last weekend in part because Iowa became its own worst enemy.

As the game played on, Iowa players found themselves trying to do too much up front which led to issues for linebackers which led to ... well, you know how it all played out.

Getting back to the fundamentals this week should help Iowa compete and the point of emphasis on the practice field includes players sticking to their responsibilities and nothing more.

That philosophy has served Iowa well over time.

Purdue will test a Hawkeye secondary that will likely be without starting safety Amani Hooker again and has cornerback Manny Rugamba hobbled to a degree.

The ability of Josh Jackson and Michael Ojemudia to come up big again at cornerback and effective play from Miles Taylor and Jake Gervase at safety will be critical this week.

3. Catch the pass

Iowa's issues in running the ball were not helped by continued issues with drops last week.

That impacted drives and helped lead to an 0-for-13 conversion rate on third down for the Hawkeyes. Iowa found itself with third-and-10 or longer on five occasions, and worked with shorter than third-and-5 scenarios just three times against Wisconsin.

Ten games to the season, the Hawkeyes' receiving corps remains a work in progress and the inability to catch catchable passes only complicates things for an offense which needs to be hitting on all cylinders to be effective.

4. Celebrate the moment

Saturday's game is the final home game for 18 Hawkeye seniors and quarterback Nate Stanley was quick to bring up this week the importance of sending the group out with a win in its final game at Kinnick Stadium.

They'll all be honored on the field prior to the game, joined by their parents, and then will be tasked with creating one final memory at home in their college career.

There will be emotions, and the quickness of the Hawkeyes' ability deal with those before kickoff and get back to trying to win a seventh game will be important.

Iowa's bowl destination will be impacted by its performance over the final two weeks of the regular season, beginning with its work against Purdue.

This decision was reached in the best interests of the students' heath and well-being, according to district spokeswoman Dawn Saul. In addition, the weather poses a high potential for damage to students and district-owned equipment and uniforms.

The forecast by the National Weather Service is calling for high sustained winds, and a wind chill factor of 30 degrees Fahrenheit, she said.\u00a0

District policy states that marching performances will not take place if the temperature is below 36 degrees and that students will not perform in rain, sleet or snow.

A Davenport woman was sentenced Thursday to up to seven years in prison for driving while intoxicated and striking her former girlfriend with her car in June.

Shonda Rena Carter, 41, pleaded guilty last month to serious injury by vehicle, a Class D felony, and operating while intoxicated-second offense, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Per the plea agreement, Scott County prosecutors Thursday dismissed additional charges of attempted murder and willful injury resulting in serious injury.

Around 8:45 p.m. June 7, Davenport police responded to a serious injury crash involving a black 2007 Lexus ES350 and a pedestrian, later identified as Sharica Hamilton, 25, of Davenport, at River Drive and Division Street.

Police say Carter chased Hamilton, who was on foot, and hit her with the front of the vehicle.

Hamilton was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, and then airlifted to University Hospitals, Iowa City.

According to police, Carter had blood-shot, watery eyes and droopy eye lids. She also had an odor of alcohol on her breath when she spoke and had slow, sluggish movements.

Carter refused standardized field sobriety tests and said she wanted an attorney, according to police. She consented to a breath sample and had a blood alcohol content of .097, according to police.

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 85-74 victory over Grambling State:

--Since none of Iowa\u2019s game thus far have been on regular television, most Hawkeye fans haven\u2019t gotten a chance to see Jack Nunge play. They\u2019re going to like him. He\u2019s 6-foot-11 with about a 7-4 wingspan, handles the ball like a guard, has a sweet shooting stroke and with the outcome hanging in the balance Thursday night, he was the one who stepped up more than anyone to take control of the game. He may be the best NBA prospect to come into the program in the Fran McCaffery era.

--With Thursday\u2019s game being the first really competitive situation for the Hawkeyes, we got a chance to see who McCaffery truly trusts in his rotation. He went most of the second half with Nunga, Luka Garza, Jordan Bohannon, Tyler Cook and Isaiah Moss on the floor. No one other than that group played more than five minutes in the second half. Maishe Dailey didn\u2019t play at all after halftime. And senior Dom Uhl never got off the bench in the entire game.

--One thing the Hawkeyes have done exceptionally well in these first three games is to hammer the ball inside and draw fouls. They were 27 for 36 at the free throw line Thursday and they\u2019re 65 for 104 for the season. The opposition is 22 for 35.

--The Hawkeyes definitely took a step backward defensively in Thursday\u2019s game and you could tell McCaffery didn\u2019t like it. Even with the game safely in hand with 1 minute, 6 seconds remaining, he was yelling loudly and vigorously enough at his players that you could hear him up in press row.

--Jordan Bohannon isn\u2019t off to a great start shooting from the field \u2014 he\u2019s 6 for 21 in the three games \u2014 but he handed out seven more assists Thursday and now has 19 (6.3 per game). He also made seven free throws in the last 1:13 to help put the game away.

--Grambling State may not have been quite as physically gifted as its Southwestern Athletic Conference rival, Alabama State, which lost to Iowa on Sunday. But the Tigers were easily the best-coached, most cohesive team the Hawkeyes have played so far. They\u2019re picked to finish seventh in the SWAC but if they had a little more of a frontcourt presence, they probably could contend for the title.

To allow for this, East/West correction lines were established; adjustments were made along those lines to make all land parcels nearly equal in size.\" Since the city's central East/West street, Fifth Street, was laid along such a correction line, the city was named after the practice.

IOWA CITY \u2014 First, the bad news. Iowa basketball allowed a team with one returning starter and a new coach, picked to finish seventh in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, to open a lead against them in the second half Thursday night.

The good news: The Hawkeyes responded to their first real challenge of the season in a big way. And it was the freshman duo of Jack Nunge and Luka Garza that provided much of the response.

Nunge scored 10 of his team-high 17 points in the final 10 minutes and Iowa finally began playing defense down the stretch to pull out an 85-74 victory over a very determined Grambling State team at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Garza probably found the best one-word description for the victory: Ugly.

\"We underestimated them for sure,\" he said. \"They were knocking down 3s, but we were giving them open 3s. \u2026 Against a better team that\u2019s going to be a loss.

\"It was just a wake-up call,\" he added. \"We needed one of those.\"

Tyler Cook and Isaiah Moss each scored 15 points with Garza adding 13 and Jordan Bohannon 12 as the Hawkeyes shot a blistering 54.3 percent from the field.

But despite all that offensive production, the Hawkeyes found themselves on the short end of the score in the middle of the second half.

Anthony Gaston hit his fourth 3-point field goal of the game to cap a 7-0 scoring surge that gave Grambling a stunning 59-56 lead with 10 minutes, 58 seconds remaining in the game.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery took a timeout at that point and finally got the attention of his players.

\"A lot of guys were angry (in that timeout) because defensively we weren\u2019t together,\" said Moss, who admitted that Iowa\u2019s defense was \"terrible\" in the early stages of the game.

\"We made some changes and pointed out some things in those changes in what we needed to focus on,\" McCaffery said.

Whatever he said made an impression.

Grambling\u2019s lead was gone within seconds as Moss drilled a quick 3 at the other end, and the Hawkeyes held the visitors scoreless for more than six minutes, going on a 14-0 run to regain control.

Their 6-foot-11 freshman duo did almost everything in the run. Nunge and Garza seemed to get every rebound, scored almost every point and even got nearly every assist.

After Moss tied the score, Nunge regained the lead with a layup off an inbounds play, scored again off an assist from Garza, then fed Garza inside for a dunk. After Cook scored, Nunge popped in a 15-foot jumper, and Garza added a layup.

After Grambling finally scored again, Nunge funneled the ball inside to Garza for another layup, then nailed a 3-pointer to give Iowa its biggest lead of the game (75-62), with less than three minutes to go.

McCaffery gave plenty of credit to Grambling, which got 21 points from forward Axel Mpoyo and 16 from Gaston.

\"We played a team that was ready,\" the Iowa coach said. \"They were organized, they had a plan, they competed, and they moved the ball \u2026

\"We did enough good things to win,\" he added. \"We executed down the stretch for the most part, got to the free throw line and utilized our size advantage.\"

He said he wasn\u2019t sure why his players took some time to realize Grambling (0-2) was going to give them a tussle.

\"It shouldn\u2019t. It was pretty evident,\" McCaffery said. \"They are a team that plays really hard, and they compete and they are together.\"

Nunge, who made three of five 3-point attempts and also grabbed seven rebounds, said he didn\u2019t think he and his teammates took the Tigers lightly.

\"I wouldn\u2019t say that,\" he said. \"They came out there right from the get-go, and they were ready to play. All the credit to them. They were hustling, they were trying to get all the offensive boards, every loose ball. I\u2019d just say they played a great game.\"
