IOWA CITY — Mason City High alum Makenzie Meyer has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week in women’s basketball, while her teammate Ally Disterhoft has been named as the conference’s Player of the Week. Meyer earns her first Big Ten weekly honor of her career after shooting 70-percent from the field for the week. She set career highs of 14 points and 12 made free throws in Iowa’s overtime win over Michigan State on February 9th. 11 of those made free throws came in the fourth quarter and overtime. Three days later at Ohio State, Meyer topper her career high in points with 16. She’s the first Iowa player to win Freshman of the Week honors since Megan Gustafson won the award last February. Disterhoft earned the conference player of the week honors after averaging 23.5 points and 9.5 rebounds last week.


AMES — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says Solomon Young will remain in the starting lineup. The six-eight freshman got his first start against Oklahoma and scored eight points in an 80-64 win. Prohm says he made the decision to insert Young into the starting lineup after last week’s loss at Texas. Iowa State returns to action Wednesday at Kansas State


DES MOINES — Two teams heading in opposite directions meet in Missouri Valley Conference play as Drake visits Evansville. After posting a 5-4 record in the first half of conference play the Bulldogs have dropped five straight and they visit an Evansville team that has won three in a row. Drake coach Jeff Rutter says the Bulldogs need to be more committed on the defensive end of the floor. Drake is 7-19 overall.



DRAKE — Drake women’s basketball coach Jennie Baranczyk says the Bulldogs are focused on getting better and not the Missouri Valley Conference standings. The Bulldogs became the first Valley team ever to start 13-0 after Sunday’s 98-46 win over Bradley. With five games remaining the Bulldogs have a two game lead in the standings over second place Northern Iowa. “Nobody is satisfied with where we are at and nobody thinks we have arrived”, said Baranczyk. “But we also want to enjoy what we are doing and there is a fine line there.” Not only is an unbeaten Valley regular season a possibility but at 20-4 overall Drake appears to be a nearly sure bet to get into the NCAA Tournament. “I think we have to continue to talk about getting better because that is the mission we are on.” Drake returns to action Friday at Indiana State. Drake also entered the Top 25 in the Associated Press rankings yesterday at #25, the first time in the rankings for the Bulldogs since December 3, 2001.
