MILWAUKEE \u2014 When Chasson Randle walked out onto the court at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Monday afternoon, he glanced to his right and momentarily thought maybe he had stumbled back into the old hometown.

Everywhere he looked there were familiar faces, and most of them were dressed in red and gold. It looked like a little piece of Rock Island had picked up and moved to Milwaukee.

\u201cIt was so warming to see that during warmups,\" Randle admitted. \u201cWhen I saw the red and gold, it kind of felt like home.\"

At times, Randle played the way he did back in his glory days with the Rocks as he tossed in 10 points in only his second NBA game, helping the Philadelphia 76ers to a 113-104 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Within a minute after entering the game in the middle of the first quarter, he swished a 3-point field goal, then added another one a few minutes later. He later scored on a drive and added a couple of free throws.

Not everything went perfectly. He also committed five fouls and had one 3-point attempt swatted a few rows into the seats by Milwaukee\u2019s Giannis Antetokounmpo. But Randle impressed 76ers coach Brett Brown, who thought his rookie guard played \u201ca really, really important\" role in the win.

\u201cWhen he came in, he went bang, bang and hit those threes and didn\u2019t flinch, was playing downhill, was playing with a level of confidence,\" Brown said. \u201cI liked his defense. I thought the five fouls that he had, he used them well. He was physical. He got his hands on balls, the 50-50 stuff, the me-or-you stuff, he came up with a few of those.\"

Randle was signed to a 10-day contract by the 76ers last week after spending the first two months of this season with the New York Knicks\u2019 D League affiliate in Westchester, New York.

He became only the fifth player from the metro Quad-Cities to play in the NBA, the first since Ricky Davis played his final game with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2010. The others to have reached basketball\u2019s highest level are Don Nelson, Steve Kuberski and Acie Earl.

Guys who come in on 10-day deals don\u2019t often see significant playing time, and Randle didn\u2019t play at all until getting in for the final 5 minutes, 31 seconds of a game at Washington on Saturday night. He rose up and swished a 27-foot jumper with 33 seconds left in that game and admitted that eased the pressure on him considerably.

He said before that, he was feeling jitters more significant than anything he ever encountered when he was leading Rocky to a state championship or Stanford University to an NIT title.

\u201cI\u2019m just glad I got it out of the way, to be honest,\" Randle said before taking the floor Monday.

\u201cI\u2019m just kind of glad I got my chance,\" he added. \u201cI can just focus on basketball now.\"

When the 76ers learned that starting point guard T.J. McConell was going to be sidelined with a sprained wrist for Monday\u2019s game, it meant Randle became the backup point guard behind veteran Sergio Rodriguez.

The ever-modest Randle gave credit to his teammates for giving him a crash course on the team\u2019s playbook and to the coaches for helping him prepare with film work.

He said he just focused on staying calm, knowing he was going to play more.

\u201cHe\u2019s always taken advantage of his opportunities and stepped up,\" said Rock Island coach Thom Sigel, who was among those red-and-gold-clad fans at the north end of the arena. \u201cThen he comes in and hits those first two threes. I guess it doesn\u2019t shock me \u2026 He was ready for the moment.\"

Randle\u2019s parents watched from seats behind the Philadelphia bench, and his father, Willie, admitted at halftime that he liked the way his son was playing.

\u201cIt\u2019s a process,\" Willie Randle said. \u201cHe still needs to get adjusted to the speed and the power of the game.\"

Chasson admitted that he is a different player now from the one he was when he first came out of Stanford in 2015.

\u201cI think my mentality has changed a little bit,\" he said. \u201cMy knowledge of the game has grown. I\u2019ve spent some time overseas and kind of got a chance to learn the ins and out of being a professional. I think that\u2019s how I\u2019ve grown as a player.\"

After Monday\u2019s game, Randle wandered out to courtside and found all those Rocky fans sitting there in one section waiting for him. For the next 20 minutes, there were all sorts of hugs and high-fives with people he hadn\u2019t seen for awhile and perhaps some he barely knows.

\u201cNice to see a lot of familiar faces make the trip,\" Sigel said. \u201cI think even people that don\u2019t know him well think they have a connection to him because of the type of guy he is.\"

Randle\u2019s 10-day contract is up later this week, and that could mean the end to his NBA career although his performance Monday helps immensely.

\u201cI\u2019m just living one day at a time,\" he said. \u201cI can\u2019t look too far ahead. Today was great, but I just need to keep moving forward. We\u2019ll celebrate tonight and then tomorrow is a new day.\"

He admitted, however, he could really get used to the NBA way of life.

\u201cAbsolutely. Absolutely,\" he said with a smile. \u201cI\u2019m living in a fantasy world right.\"

For a brief moment midway through the third period, Nolan LaPorte thought he had a hat trick.

But as the Quad-City Mallards rookie forward was celebrating what he thought was an equalizing third-period goal, referee Jonathan Sitarski was waiving it off.

Sitarski ruled that forward Brady Brassart made \"incidental contact\" with Tulsa goaltender Jamie Phillips, and instead of heading into the final 10 minutes tied, the Mallards remained down by a goal. They ultimately fell 5-3 to the Oilers on Monday at the iWireless Center.

Upon replay, it showed Brassart outside the crease, putting a screen on Phillips while getting shoved in the back by a Tulsa player. Philips didn't get over to cover the left side of the net in time, allowing an open lane for LaPorte. Any contact with Brassart was outside the crease, but the goal was still disallowed.

\"I was battling to get in front and I felt I got out of there in pretty good time and felt I got right in front of him and took his eyes away,\" Brassart said. \"It should have been a hat trick for Portsy.\"

The Mallards gave up an empty-net goal in the final minute to end chances of another tying goal.

It's not the first time this season the Mallards have been on the wrong end of some calls. A series of controversial calls cost the team in a shootout loss to Cincinnati earlier this season, including an apparent goaltender interference that went uncalled and directly led to a goal.

\"It sucks. Everyone sees the game differently from different perspectives,\" Brassart said. \"The consistency is hard to deal with sometimes, especially in a game like that.\"

There aren't currently any in-game checks on referees in the ECHL. The league only utilizes one referee during regular-season games, and doesn't have a replay system implemented.

It's led to a lot of frustration from head coach Terry Ruskowski.

\"I am so tired of this happening,\" Ruskowski said. \"Not once, not twice, but three times they've taken points away from this team by bad calls and I'm tired of it. Something's got to be done, this is ridiculous ... it's getting monotonous, and I can't handle it anymore.

\"A referee is not going to make all the calls, and I understand that ... as long as it doesn't cost you a goal. But these decisions that they're making, the forced errors they're making are costing us points and that's the difference between making a bad call and a call that cost you the game and points. If there's a call that you don't score, we'll bite our tongue and live with it but when you're making blatant mistakes ... and costing us goals, it kills us.\"

LaPorte was hit with a misconduct penalty in the final minute for throwing equipment, a byproduct of the frustration caused 10 minutes earlier. After the game, he was much less emotional.

\"There's nothing you can do about it,\" he said. \"We made mistakes early in the game that cost us. There's nothing you can do about it at that point, you can't blame the refs, you can't blame a disallowed goal but yeah, it's tough to accept it but you can't blame anyone but yourself.\"

There were mistakes that ultimately cost the Mallards. The Oilers took a 1-0 lead on a goal from Garrett Ladd after Mallards defenseman Mike Monfredo failed to get the puck out of the zone.

Ned Lukacevic answered 41 seconds later for his first goal with the Mallards and LaPorte's first goal gave the team a 2-1 lead after the first period. Tulsa responded with three goals in the second period, the game-winner from Wes Cunningham, who pounced on a backdoor pass for a power play goal at 16:40.

LaPorte scored his second on a shorthanded breakaway to set up the third period controversy.

Phillips, the all-star starting goaltender, made 21 saves on 24 shots while Quad-City goaltender C.J. Motte, the all-star reserve goaltender, made 32 saves on 36 shots.

The Mallards now head into a much-needed three-day all-star break. Five players were out of the lineup Monday, and this break can help with the team's health, but also serve as a mental reset for a team that has now lost seven of its last eight games.

\"Come back ready to work, I'm sure we're going to all come back hungry,\" LaPorte said. \"I think it's going to be good for us, should be beneficial. We've got a lot of guys with injuries, a lot of guys sick. These three days can only help us.\"

Alex Tanney went back to work Monday in Nashville, beginning his offseason training routine with the Tennessee Titans.

The quarterback who won the Melberger Trophy as the NCAA Division III player of the year during his senior season at Monmouth College is preparing for his sixth NFL preseason camp, but will also spend time this offseason helping Quad-City area players.

He is partnering with his father, long-time Illinois high school coach Don Tanney, in hosting a one-day camp for quarterbacks and receivers currently enrolled in grades 7-11 that will be held on Sunday, Feb. 19 at Augustana College.

\u201cThis is like a lot of camps that my dad took me to growing up. We\u2019d drive to Chicago or Indiana and coming out of a small town, I learned a lot from those experiences,\u2019\u2019 Tanney said.

\u201cMy dad had a 30-year hall-of-fame coaching career and I\u2019m five years into my NFL career now so we bring some unique perspectives to things.\u2019\u2019

Tanney, who wants to coach once his professional playing career ends, said the camp tries to deliver to its participants a good baseline of where they are at and provide drills and technique work that players can take home with them to continue to work on as they get ready for their seasons.

\u201cWe feel like we\u2019ve put together a good plan for players of that age to work with,\u2019\u2019 Tanney said. \u201cWe\u2019ve had players come out from Iowa City, Springfield, Quincy and the Chicago area come out to the camp and we\u2019ve had guys go on and earn opportunities at the small-college level and hopefully we\u2019ve been able to help them along the way.\u2019\u2019

The Tanney Passing Academy hosts a camp annually in Bloomington, Illinois, and has offered a session in recent years in Geneseo but will move that to the Augustana campus this year where Tanney\u2019s former college coach, Steve Bell, now leads the Vikings\u2019 program.

\u201cIt will be great to see coach Bell and give the players a chance to see the facilities there,\u2019\u2019 Tanney said. \u201cCoach Bell will do a good job building that program and we\u2019re excited to have the camp there.\u2019\u2019

The camp session at Augustana runs from 5-9 p.m. on Feb. 19 and registration is now available online at tanneypassingacademy.com.

Tanney, who passed for 14,249 yards during his collegiate career at Monmouth, initially signed out of college with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent. He opened the 2013 season on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad before being claimed by the Cleveland Browns midway through the season.

He went on to start 2014 with Tampa Bay and finished the year with Tennessee before spending time in 2015 with Buffalo, Indianapolis and Nashville, where he has been since.

\u201cComing out of Monmouth undrafted and to be getting ready for my sixth preseason camp, it\u2019s been an incredible experience and the learning never stops,\u2019\u2019 Tanney said. \u201cIt\u2019s why I enjoy giving something back to younger players. The opportunities are there if you work for them.\u2019\u2019

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 89-54 loss to Northwestern:

--You could make a case for this being Iowa\u2019s worst game of the season yet. The loss to Omaha was embarrassing and that game against Virginia down in Florida the day after Thanksgiving was bad, but this may have been worse. It\u2019s the Hawkeyes\u2019 largest margin of defeat ever in 175 meetings with Northwestern and it really wasn\u2019t even close. The previous worst was a 98-76 loss in 1964.

--It wasn\u2019t all a case of Iowa being bad. Northwestern is really good. We knew all along that Bryant McIntosh was a great point guard but Scott Lindsey has come into his own as a wing scorer, Vic Law is a very well-rounded player, Dererk Pardon is an underrated big man and the Wildcats have a decent bench. Even Sanjay Lumpkin nailed a 3-point field goal in the game. Lumpkin used to be the most offensively-challenged starter in the Big Ten. For three years, it wasn\u2019t even necessary to guard him. Now he\u2019s making threes. This team is going to make the NCAA tournament for the first time, ending what had been Chicago\u2019s second biggest sports drought.

--The Wildcats did a good job on Peter Jok but they really didn\u2019t do anything different against the Iowa star than what other teams have done all season. There was some suggestion after the game that Jok\u2019s back was bothering him. There also were a few instances in which he just didn\u2019t play very hard. Near the end of the first half, Lindsey simply outhustled him going down the court and went past him for a layup.

--It may be time to reconsider Isaiah Moss as a starter. For the fourth straight game he played fewer than 20 minutes and for the second straight game he scored just two points. It\u2019s not as though he contributes a lot as a rebounder or defender. He also had three turnovers in his 16 minutes of action.

--You got the feeling after the game that Fran McCaffery may also be contemplating putting Ryan Kriener into the lineup after the 6-foot-9 freshman had his second straight strong game while Cordell Pemsl struggled. Kriener has a ways to go defensively but he looks supremely confident shooting the ball. He scored 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting.

--Besides Kriener, a few other Iowa reserves had some OK moments. Christian Williams twice got steals and went in for easy layups and Ahmad Wagner had a career-high five assists. The Hawkeyes actually played much better for a few minutes when McCaffery yanked all five of his starters out of the game with 16 minutes, 49 seconds to go in the game. Most of the starters later went back into the game but only one of them scored after that.

--Dom Uhl did not play, apparently because of an injury to the thumb on his right hand but there was no word on how long he might be out. Uhl injured the thumb on an aborted dunk attempt Thursday night against Purdue.

EVANSTON, Ill. \u2014 This isn\u2019t the Northwestern most of us are used to seeing.

And it sure didn\u2019t look like the same Iowa team that chopped one of the Big Ten\u2019s kingpins down to size a few nights earlier.

Northwestern, led by junior point guard Bryant McIntosh, began shredding Iowa from the opening tap Sunday night and it never really stopped. It also became the first team all season to really silence Iowa\u2019s Peter Jok on its way to a resounding 89-54 victory over the Hawkeyes at Welsh-Ryan Arena.

The Wildcats, who never had beaten Iowa by more than 22 points previously, are hoping to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in their history and if Sunday is any indication, they\u2019ll do it.

Heck, they may do more than that. Sunday\u2019s victory moves them into a tie for third place in the Big Ten standings at 4-2 (15-4 overall), just a half game behind first-place Maryland.

The loss dropped Iowa to 3-3 in league play, 11-8 overall, and sent head coach Fran McCaffery back to the same drawing board he faced following a 22-point rout at the hands of Purdue in the Big Ten opener a few weeks ago.

McCaffery\u2019s postgame news conference was as candid and accurate as it was terse.

Did he see anything he liked from his team? \u201cNot much.\u2019\u2019

What was the biggest problem? \u201cPretty much everything.\u2019\u2019

Did he see a few little signs of life from his team in the second half? \u201cVery little.\u2019\u2019

McIntosh did pretty much anything he wanted against the Iowa defense, flipping in 20 points and adding 10 assists. Scottie Lindsey collected 22 points and 8 rebounds, Dererk Pardon added 14 points and 9 rebounds, and Vic Law netted 12 points while also doing much of the defensive work on Jok.

The Iowa star came into the game averaging 22.9 points per contest and had not scored fewer than 13 in a game all season. He finished with only four points on 2-for-9 shooting and after getting a career-high eight assists on Thursday against Purdue, he had a goose egg in that statistic Sunday.

With the game getting out of hand very early in the second half, McCaffery benched most of his starters. As a result, Jok played only six minutes after halftime.

\u201cI think pretty much everything went wrong,\u2019\u2019 Jok said. \u201cWe weren\u2019t ready from the get-go. We didn\u2019t follow the game plan \u2026 They started off hot. One of our main things was to not let them start off hot because once they start off hot they\u2019re a difficult team to beat.\u2019\u2019

Northwestern jumped to a quick 8-0 lead, then later in the half went on 14-1 scoring run that included four Iowa turnovers, pushing the margin to 39-23. It was 44-32 at halftime.

There was another big run in the first few minutes of the second half that prompted McCaffery to remove his starters en masse. After a few good minutes by the reserves, Northwestern went on a crushing 20-1 tear that included four dunks, three of them by Pardon.

Four dunks? That used to be a month\u2019s work for Northwestern.

Not anymore. These guys are much more athletic than any Wildcats team any of us has ever seen and they do just about everything well. They shot 59.7 percent from the field, outrebounded Iowa 39-24 and had 29 assists on 37 made baskets.

It was pretty much total destruction.

\u201cI\u2019ll say this, they are a team that is very together,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said. \u201cWe were clearly pretty disjointed tonight.\u2019\u2019

The Iowa players struggled to explain why they didn\u2019t put up more of a fight.

\u201cThere was no mental focus or toughness,\u2019\u2019 said freshman Tyler Cook, who shared scoring honors for Iowa with 14 points. \u201cThey were obviously the tougher team tonight. They were more locked in than we were.\u2019\u2019

Jok and some of the other players admitted they thought these sort of games were behind them, that they had turned a corner after being drubbed in similar fashion in the first of their two meetings with Purdue.

Obviously not.

\u201cIt\u2019s a lot like the Purdue game in my opinion,\u2019\u2019 said freshman Ryan Kriener, who also scored 14 points. \u201cAnd I think we\u2019re going to go back home and we\u2019re going to regroup like we did after the Purdue game, and we\u2019re going to keep working and we\u2019re going to learn from it.\u2019\u2019

For what it\u2019s worth, the 6-foot-9 Kriener was one of the few highlights for the Hawkeyes. Probably the only one.

After having a breakout game Thursday in the rematch with Purdue, he drained 6 of 7 shots on Sunday.

\u201cI\u2019ve been saying for a long time that this kid is good and that he needs to play,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said. \u201cHe\u2019s going to play now.\u2019\u2019

Jok was adamant that the Hawkeyes will bounce back again. They need to do it fast. Maryland comes to Iowa City on Thursday.

\u201cIt\u2019s a roller coaster,\u2019\u2019 Jok said. \u201cThere\u2019s going to be good times and there\u2019s going to be bad times. This is one of the bad times.\u2019\u2019

CEDAR FALLS\u00a0\u2014 Throughout a seven-game losing streak, Northern Iowa men's basketball coach Ben Jacobson insisted his team was practicing well on a daily basis.

Sunday, that effort finally carried over to a game situation.

Jeremy Morgan, Bennett Koch and Jordan Ashton combined for 59 points and UNI earned its first conference win with a 79-60 victory over Drake at the McLeod Center.

Koch got things going early, scoring eight points in the opening seven minutes. This included a mid-range hook shot that kick-started an 18-0 first-half run by UNI.

Koch, who tied Morgan for a team-high 21 points, finished 8-of-8 from the floor and successfully attacked the basket for the duration of the game

After struggling to find a consistent rhythm throughout the season, the junior center said he and his teammates \"came out swinging\" Sunday, a mentality his coach believes will be of great service to him going forward.

\"For him, this is great,\" Jacobson said. \"He is a very good player and he's a tough guy to play against when he's playing like he did today.\"

Morgan also gave the Panthers a big boost, finishing 7-of-12 from the floor. This came after the senior guard missed Wednesday's game at Bradley with an ankle injury sustained last Sunday against Wichita State.

Jacobson said he was unsure Morgan would be able to return after still looking ginger on Friday. But following a strong Saturday practice, he said he was ready to be a full participant.

Morgan said he \"felt great\" afterwards, and felt he was at \"95 percent\" physically. Both he and Jacobson were optimistic the injury wouldn't linger.
