STORYLINES

\u2022 Iowa is coming off a 92-78 loss to Notre Dame in which it went with three first-time starters. Jordan Bohannon scored a career-best 23 points and Cordell Pemsl added 18 points, each in their starting debut. The Hawkeyes have lost four of their last five games and are allowing 83.1 points per game while scoring 85.1.

\u2022 Omaha defeated Cal State-Fullerton 83-73 on Wednesday night behind 20 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals by Tra-Deon Hollins, who led the country in steals a year ago. The Mavericks return three starters from a 17-15 team and also return Marcus Tyus, a starter two years ago who sat out all of last season with an injury.

\u2022 Omaha, under 12th-year head coach Derrin Hansen, is in its sixth year as a Division I program. It played in Carver-Hawkeye Arena three years ago, losing 83-75. Each team still has one player who participated in that game, Peter Jok for Iowa and Tyus for the Mavericks.

It\u2019s go time for the basketball teams at Augustana college.

For the first time in decades the Vikings will play College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin games before January, taking the court for three league games over the next eight days beginning tonight at the Carver Center.

\u201cIt\u2019s something totally different, something I\u2019ve never done in 35 years of coaching, but it\u2019s what is in front of us and we need to be ready to go,\u2019\u2019 Augustana men\u2019s coach Grey Giovanine said. \u201cInstead of 11 games to get ready, we have six.\u2019\u2019

The return of Carroll to the CCIW has altered the now nine-team league\u2019s schedule, adding two games, creating byes and necessitating an earlier start to conference play.

\u201cCoaches are like everybody else, we are all creatures of habit and this is different,\u2019\u2019 Vikings women\u2019s coach Mark Beinborn said. \u201cIt\u2019s created a different routine. You want to be at your best for your conference games and those start now even though the season is still pretty young.\u2019\u2019

Augustana hosts North Park today, with the Vikings\u2019 5-0 women\u2019s team tipping off its game at 5 p.m. followed by Giovanine\u2019s 17th-rated men\u2019s team putting its 5-1 record on the line at 7 p.m. against a North Park team that is 4-0.

The Augie men will play all three of their league games in the upcoming week at the Carver Center, hosting Wheaton next Wednesday and Carthage one week from today.

In addition to playing Carthage next Saturday, the Augie women travel to Elmhurst on Wednesday.

\u201cIf nothing else, we\u2019re all in the same situation so hopefully it evens out,\u2019\u2019 Beinborn said.

Giovanine hopes for the same.

\u201cI\u2019m glad we\u2019re home, but I don\u2019t have a good feel yet for how it might impact everything,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cWe\u2019ve always focused on using December to get ready for conference, and I think our games so far have helped us do that, but the conference season is here.\u2019\u2019

Pete Bush had no complaints about his team's fight Thursday night. The decision-making, though, in some instances had the Davenport Assumption wrestling coach scratching his head afterward.

After upending Mediapolis in the opening dual 50-19, Class 2A fifth-ranked Assumption dropped a 33-30 decision to 10th-ranked Washington in the season opener at Assumption High School.

\"We just did some dumb things that were unexpected from wrestlers I know shouldn't be making those mistakes,\" Bush said. \"Hopefully, this will serve as a calling card people aren't going to lay over for us.

\"Credit Washington. They did a great job, came in to battle and were fired up.\"

To Assumption's defense, it did not have its full lineup.

Two-time state placewinner Noah Broderson failed to make weight, Pleasant Valley transfer Matt Robertson isn't eligible until this weekend and Assumption forfeited two weights (113 and 145 pounds) against Washington.

Still, Assumption had an opportunity to win the dual.

Jacob Felderman gave the Knights a 30-27 lead with a 1-0 victory at 120. In the final bout at 126, Washington's Kyle Anderson pinned Joe Field in the second period to secure the win.

\"Honestly, this should motivate us for the rest of the season,\" Assumption freshman Seth Adrian said. \"It shows that we need to work and we are beatable. That will motivate us.\"

Sean Casey (132), Henry Martens (220) and Trenton McDonough (106) had falls for Assumption. Julien Broderson knocked off fourth-ranked Trey Van Weelden 7-0 at 160, and Adrian posted a 2-0 win at 195.

Assumption, though, dropped a one-point match at 170, suffered a two-point setback at 138 and lost in overtime at 285.

\"It is a little disappointing to lose the dual,\" Casey said, \"but we had a lot of people step up and have a really good showing. We just need to win a few more close matches.\"

Bush thought several of his wrestlers had stage fright. Adrian did not.

After finishing his football season on the varsity squad, Adrian recorded a 7-1 win in the opening dual against Mediapolis. He used a second-period reversal to edge Washington's Tanner Murphy in the nightcap.

\"Just an animal,\" Bush said of Adrian. \"He's actually just brawling out there. He's yet to really learn the finer things of wrestling. By the end of the year, there could be special things happening for him.\"

Adrian has leaned on his conditioning. It paid off in the second victory.

\"My goal is to out-condition everybody else,\" Adrian said.

McDonough, Casey and Pete Laubenthal joined Adrian with two contested wins.

Casey missed the championship portion of the season last year with a torn ACL. Cleared in June, Casey had two first-period falls Thursday.

\"I want to get back out there and show what I can really do,\" Casey said. \"It was a good start to be back on the mat, a competitive dual and work out any kinks I've built up during the recovery time.\"

The Knights return to action Saturday in Manchester at the Bob Murphy Invitational.

\"We've got a learning curve as a team collectively,\" Bush said. \"We're not young as far as age but we're fairly inexperienced. We can't take this loss personally and get down because of it.\"

This season on the gridiron, Suni Lane and Mark Kallenberger were integral parts of the Bettendorf Bulldogs' run to a district title and the postseason.

If one game is any indication, the duo might be pretty big pieces on the hardwood as well.

Lane and Kallenberger combined for 29 points and 18 rebounds as the Bulldogs won their season opener 67-50 over Cedar Rapids Washington at Bettendorf High School.

\"It was fun to watch Suni, blocking for him and watching him get in the end zone, scoring,\" said Kallenberger, an all-state offensive lineman who is committed to Iowa. \"Him doing that stuff on the basketball court, it makes me feel the same way. I'm just excited for him and glad he's getting those opportunities to score. He's one of the best athletes I've ever seen, a great player and a great teammate.\"

The duo made their impacts in vastly different ways Thursday night. Lane used the athleticism that made him an all-state wide receiver to give the Bulldogs a lead they never relinquished, while Kallenberger used his 6-foot-7 frame to dominate down low in the second half, finishing with 14 points and 11 rebounds.\u00a0

Hunter Strait led the Warriors (1-1) with 23 points while Cole Grothusen contributed eight points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs.

\"I was just pleased with our effort,\" head coach Curtis Clark said. \"I thought we had an advantage in the paint, whether it was scoring or rebounding.\"

The first quarter showed marks the Bulldogs (1-0) were playing their first game of the season as Bettendorf trailed 15-11 and had four turnovers. Lane took over in the second quarter, creating multiple turnovers and scoring 10 of his team-high 15 points, including a dunk that gave the Bulldogs a 21-19 lead, one they built on and never gave up again.

\"Momentum changed,\" Lane said. \"Once you start scoring a little bit, you just get into the flow of things. When you start making steals on defense, the offense will take care of itself.\"

Lane was a big part of last year's team, but Kallenberger is making a return after missing most of the season with injury. His return gave the Bulldogs a notable size advantage over the Warriors and the team controlled the boards, outrebounding Cedar Rapids Washington 40-22 to build on a 34-25 halftime lead.

To get a double-double in his first game of his senior season gives Kallenberger confidence for the rest of the year, and confidence to a team that is slightly banged up to start the season.

The Bulldogs were without JMichael Young, their top returning scorer from last season, who is getting over a lingering injury. Clark expects him back, but wasn't sure when and the return of a three-year varsity player would provide a boost as the season progresses.

\"Probably more so than anything, just the experience,\" Clark said. \"One of the great traits this team does have is we have depth and I have confidence in anybody we put out there.\"

The win was a small manner of revenge for many of the players in the locker room as the Warriors beat the Bulldogs on the football field by a point in overtime earlier this season. Though it's not quite the same, this big win does feel a little bit sweeter.

\"Getting that win by 17, that's great, I love it,\" Kallenberger said. \"It can't make up for (the loss) but it's nice to get that win against them.\"

Along with a switch to a 1-2-2 zone defense in the second half, Moline added a huge dose of poise to its offense the final two quarters Thursday.

And with the aid of night-long superior rebounding, the result brought a smile to Moline coach Tracy Sant Amour\u2019s face as the Maroons broke from a 29-29 halftime tie to lead by as much as 14 in the fourth quarter en route to a fairly-controlled 53-45 win over United Township at the Panther Den.

With the victory, Moline is now 3-2 for the season and 1-1 in the Western Big Six. All three of its wins have come on the road.

\u201cIt was huge, huge,\u201d Sant Amour said of the victory. \u201cWe wanted to go hard after UT. We wanted to prove a point that Rock Island (7-0, including an 80-36 win over Moline at Wharton earlier this season) is Rock Island, but we are Moline.\u201d

Moline\u2019s defensive switch did the trick in the third quarter, holding UT\u2019s leading scorer, Davi Buchanan, to just one missed field goal and the Panthers to a 1-for-6 shooting quarter. The purpose of the defense was to cut off Buchanan\u2019s drives, and it did. She finished with 15 points but 12 came in the first half, nine in the first quarter, when the Panthers led 17-12.

On offense, Moline did not really slow it down, they just worked the ball and worked for their shots better in the second half.

\u201cThe thing that happens with us is sometimes when we just want to shoot those fast shots,\u201d Sant Amour said. \u201cNobody is ready for it. We just throw things up. We have to learn to be a little bit more patient, pick apart the defense, look for the open spots and then go ahead and go after it.\u201d

That\u2019s pretty much what the Maroons did in the second half when it shot 9 for 18 from the field after making just 8 of 26 in the first half

Moline was led by senior Chrystal Rios who scored 17 points, 11 after intermission, most of them on drives to the bucket.

Rios credited the Maroons bench with bringing a spark to the game and providing energy. But to most watching, the difference began with Rios and Moline\u2019s board work.

\u201cBasically, I just keep shooting,\u201d said Rios, \u201cbecause eventually they are going to fall. You just have got to play with a lot of heart and intensity.\u201d

Also having a big game for Moline was 5-foot-10 junior Alannah Crompton, who had 15 points and 12 rebounds. The Maroons outrebounded the Panthers 38-21.

Letecia Billups, a 5-11 junior, and the other half of the Maroons powerful front line, added 10 rebounds and eight points.

\u201cThey are a lot of help,\u201d Rios said.

\u201cThe single biggest factor I saw in tonight\u2019s game was rebounding,\u201d Walker said. \u201cThe bottom line is when you get the number of attempts and shots off second and third rebounds \u2026 it\u2019s going to be the difference in the ballgame.\u201d

Sant Amour wanted to get a few points across at halftime and apparently she did.

\u201cShe was stressing mainly stop the drives, and the outside shots,\u201d Rios said. \u201cShe just really brings it.\u201d

But taking Buchanan seemingly out of the game was huge.

\u201c(Buchanan) really just puts it in the gap a lot, so we drilled that a lot at practice,\u201d explained Rios. \u201cSo we just made sure she didn\u2019t get in there. That helped a lot.\u201d

Moline also got seven points and a pretty good floor game from point guard Alyssa Ealy.

United Township got 12 from Maddie Tague, all on 3-pointers. But she only made 1 of 3 in the second half. And one shot, after intermission, was usually all the Panthers got.

Moline also won the turnover battle, having just 10 compared to the Panthers\u2019 16.

Rock Island 77, Quincy 40: Brea Beal scored 29 points and Rock Island improved to 7-0 overall and 2-0 in the Western Big Six with a rout of the Blue Devils on Thursday.

The Rocks are alone in first place and now prepare to face two-time defending state champion Lisle Benet on Saturday.

Galesburg 52, Alleman 30: The Silver Streaks held the Pioneers to two points in the second quarter to pull away to a Western Big Six victory at Alleman.

Gabby Loiz led Alleman (2-5, 1-1 Big Six) with eight points. Galesburg (6-1, 1-1) was led by Kaylah Townsell with 13 points.

Chris Francis is in a new town, with a new team, and in a new role.

That could be daunting, but he's enjoying every bit of his first year as captain of the Quad-City Mallards, taking over following the retirement of longtime defenseman Darren McMillan, who served as team captain for the past six seasons.

\"I don\u2019t think it\u2019s tough,\" Francis said. \"He obviously did a good job with the team and I\u2019m just trying to make sure I keep the tradition alive of a good captain and make sure the team does well.\"

Francis' start to the season wasn't easy as his mother-in-law passed away the week of the regular season opener. Francis missed much of the final week of training camp and the first two games of the season on bereavement leave.

That time away contributed to a sluggish start, with just one assist in his first three games. But once he his game legs back, Francis has been one of the more dependable players on the team. He has tallied at least a point in eight of his last 12 games and is currently third on the team with six goals and 12 points.

While his production is increasing, his leadership has been there from the start. He helped guide the Mallards through their first three-game losing streak of the season and to a 10-7-1 record, currently third in the Central Division. Leadership was key, helping the team rebound from that skid with three straight wins and avoid any prolonged stretch of futility.

\"We sat down and said enough is enough,\" Francis said. \"(Head coach Terry Ruskowski) came in and gave us a good talking and we responded, that\u2019s what the good teams do.\"

Francis is now a veteran of this game, in his seventh year as a pro and first with the Mallards after spending last year in Austria with Szekeshfehervar Alba Volan. Despite having a strong season, with 12 goals and 17 assists, the Las Vegas native knew he wanted to return to North America.

He joined a Mallards team that, despite making a fourth straight playoff trip under Ruskowski, was going through an overhaul, which included the retirement of McMillan.

\"I wanted a guy outside of what we were doing last year and in years before. I wanted a new, fresh start,\" Ruskowski said. \"I wanted a guy to come in here who has played in higher leagues and has done well in this league, a veteran guy that I know off the ice is going to be mature and responsible, a guy I can go to or he can come to me without any hesitation to talk about the team.\"

While Ruskowski was initially leaning toward Francis \u2014 who was an assistant captain two seasons ago with the Alaska Aces \u2014\u00a0it was how the veteran handled himself while on that bereavement leave that sealed the decision, keeping in touch with the players and dealing with any last-minute issues, like a leader.

\"When you become a leader on the team guys look up to you on and off the ice, you\u2019ve got to make sure you\u2019re doing the right things all the time so they\u2019ll follow you,\" Francis said. \"You\u2019ve got to make sure guys are ready to go, know what the gameplan is on and off the ice so it\u2019s a lot more responsibility but I like it.\"

His style is much different from McMillan, who was much more of a quiet player who led by example. Francis, due in part to his position as center, has many more opportunities to step up, and has been a vocal presence.\u00a0

\"Mac was a guy who would go out there and produce every night, give it his all more than a talker in the locker room,\" defenseman Mike Monfredo said. \"(Francis) is\u00a0a great role guy to take over from McMillan ... we mesh really well, we get along off the ice which is a huge help.\"

Monfredo is the longest-tenured Mallard, now in his fifth year with the team and second as an assistant captain. Rookie Alex Petan is the third assistant captain, and the trio has helped create a good environment in the locker room.

\"We\u2019re very close, we talk about things,\" Francis said. \"I don\u2019t really look at myself as being the captain, even though I have the \u2018C\u2019. There are a lot of leaders on this team, not just the guys with the letters.\"

Francis knows what it takes to be successful in this league. He was a member of the Las Vegas Wranglers the year they finished as league runner-up. It's early, and even though the Mallards are young, their new captain thinks they're built to win.

\"As soon as I saw the group of guys we had I knew we had the right amount of pieces for every game. We\u2019ve got a lot of skill, we\u2019ve got toughness, we\u2019ve got grit, speed, we\u2019ve got everything and that\u2019s really good to have on a team,\" Francis said. \"This team 100 percent has what it takes to win a finals but it\u2019s a long season.\"

A strong finish to the regular season could impact Iowa\u2019s bowl destination.

Wins over second-ranked Michigan and the season-ending 40-10 pounding of 17th-ranked Nebraska during the final three weeks of the Big Ten season have caught the attention of the Outback Bowl, making the Jan. 2 game in Tampa an additional postseason possibility for the Hawkeyes.

\u201cWe have had only good experiences with Iowa and they certainly have played their way to a spot high on our list,\u2019\u2019 Outback Bowl president Jim McVey said. \u201cWe love their fans, their coaches, their players and the way they finished. The Hawkeyes will be among the teams we\u2019re taking a hard look at this weekend.\u2019\u2019

The Outback Bowl is very familiar with Iowa, having hosted the Hawkeyes four times since 2003 but Iowa last played in the bowl following the 2013 season, losing a 20-14 game to LSU.

Bowl berths will be announced Sunday after the selections for the College Football Playoffs are finalized.

With four Big Ten teams currently rated in the top six in this week\u2019s playoff selection committee rankings, the outcome of games this weekend across the country will impact both playoff and bowl possibilities for a number of league teams.

Now ranked 22nd, Iowa won its final three regular-season games as part of an 8-4 regular season.

The Outback Bowl has the Big Ten\u2019s selection after the College Football Playoff Committee fills slots for the playoff and other New Year\u2019s Six bowls.

If a Big Ten team is selected to play in the Orange Bowl, by contract the conference would not send a team to the Citrus Bowl this year and the Outback Bowl would have the conference\u2019s first selection outside of the six New Year\u2019s games.

The Holiday Bowl, a San Diego-based game scheduled for Dec. 27, and the Music City Bowl, scheduled for Dec. 30 in Nashville, are also eying Iowa.

The Hawkeyes last played in the Holiday Bowl in 1991 when Iowa and BYU battled to a 13-13 tie. The Hawkeyes have never competed in the Music City Bowl, which is played in the hometown of Iowa senior quarterback C.J. Beathard.

The Holiday Bowl selects its Big Ten representative right after the Outback Bowl and the bowl\u2019s executive director Mark Neville likes the position his bowl is in right now.

\u201cBottom line, nothing will be determined until Sunday and it\u2019s likely we won\u2019t settle on a team until about an hour before it\u2019s announced after the Outback makes its pick,\u2019\u2019 Neville said. \u201cWe do know we\u2019re going to get a good Big Ten team.\u2019\u2019

He said Iowa and Minnesota, both 8-4 teams, have generated the most conversation among the bowl\u2019s committee members but Neville said other teams could come into play based on what happens elsewhere.

\u201cThere are possibilities out there that we may not have talked much about,\u2019\u2019 said Neville, whose bowl hosted Wisconsin last year. \u201cWe\u2019ll see how things play out on the field, and what the others above us do, and we\u2019ll go from there.\u2019\u2019

BRAMPTON, Ont.\u00a0\u2014 A sluggish start North of the border cost the Quad-City Mallards on Thursday morning.

The Mallards allowed three first-period goals, which was too much of a deficit to overcome as they fell 4-3 to the Brampton Beast at the Powerade Centre. The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the Mallards as well as a three-game losing streak for the Beast.

\"Early and bad start this morning,\" head coach Terry Ruskowski said. \"We came out really slow. We just weren't ready.\"

The Beast entered the game as the second highest-scoring team in the league and looked it early, getting those three early goals, including one from former Mallard Brandon Marino.

The game was scheduled as an 11 a.m. local start, and Ruskowski felt that, coupled with being on the road, attributed to the rough first period.

\"As a coach you don't know, you always hope your team is prepared,\" he said. \"But I kind of knew in the dressing room, it wasn't a serious dressing room, too much laughing and giggling and when you do that you're not ready to play.\"

After the first, the Mallards shored up their game and attempted a comeback. Michael Parks scored a goal in the second period, and Alex Gudbranson cut the lead to 3-2 at the 5-minute, 44-second mark of the third period.

Chris Leveille scored the game-winner, taking the puck off a face-off and beating goalie Adam Vay at 13:56, and though Jack Nevins scored 49 seconds later, the final Brampton goal was too much to overcome.

Adam Vay made 18 shots as the Beast managed just 22 shots on the day. Captain Chris Francis and defenseman Dylan Labbe both missed the game with lower body injuries, though Ruskowski said he hopes both can play when the two teams meet again tonight.
