Missouri survives scare from Hawaii for 92-80 win

Saturday, 16 November 2013 22:46 Published in Sports

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jabari Brown scored 23 points and Jordan Clarkson added 13 as Missouri defeated Hawaii 92-80 Saturday night in its first game at Kansas City's Sprint Center as members of the Southeastern Conference.

The Tigers' lead remained in single digits for most of the game until Wes Clark fed Ryan Rosburg with a nifty pass for a two-handed dunk and a 10-point lead with just less than 8 minutes remaining. It gave the crowd a dose of energy on a night when both teams struggled to put together any sort of momentum or extended run.

Moments later, Clark drilled a 3-pointer to extend the Tigers' lead to 13 points. Still, Hawaii's Garrett Nevels responded with a 3-pointer of his own. But the Rainbow Warriors couldn't get closer than 7 after that.

Rosburg emphatically ended Hawaii's upset bid with another dunk with 2 minutes remaining.

Christian Standhardinger led Hawaii with 22 points before fouling out. The Rainbow Warriors lost their fifth-straight game on the mainland.

The Tigers were playing in the Sprint Center for the first time since winning the 2012 Big 12 Tournament final against Baylor. That was Missouri's final game before bolting to the SEC. It was their sixth-straight victory in the venue.

Videos welcoming Missouri back to Kansas City from local business leaders and politicians were played on the video board during timeouts, but a chunk of empty seats littered the arena.

Hawaii made sure Missouri didn't have an easy return to its Big 12 roots. After trailing by one at the half, the Tigers used a quick 12-6 spurt to grab the lead early in the second half.

Just like in the first half, the Rainbow Warriors responded to both runs.

Hawaii wasn't as flashy as the Tigers, but they used timely 3-pointers and free throw shooting to take its halftime lead. The Rainbow Warriors outscored Missouri 16-6 from the free throw line in the first half before the Tigers scored a multitude of free throws to ice the game.

For most of second half, Hawaii stayed hot from the free-throw line, but it shot only 1 of 8 from 3-point range.

Missouri weathered Hawaii's attack by using penetration to drive the ball and then either kick out to an open guard for a 3-point attempt or to an open big man down low when help defense arrived on the ball. Missouri dominated the points in the paint 56-36.

The Tigers stayed undefeated in their third game without coach Frank Haith, who was suspended by the NCAA for five games for his role in the Nevin Shapiro scandal while Haith was the head coach at Miami. He is eligible to coach his first game of the season Nov. 28 against Northwestern.

Missouri held Isaac Fotu, who leads Hawaii in scoring with 16.7 points per game, to only 7 points, helping offset the other four Rainbow Warriors who scored in double figures.

Blues handle Hurricanes 4-2

Saturday, 16 November 2013 22:44 Published in Sports

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 17th goal and also added an assist to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Steen extended his scoring streak to 13 games, the longest for a Blue since Pierre Turgeon had a 15-game streak in 1999-2000.

The Blues won for the fifth time in six games despite giving up two short-handed goals on the same power play for the first time in more than 20 years. St. Louis last allowed that to happen on Oct. 8, 1992 against the then-Minnesota North Stars.

Roman Polak had a goal and assist for St. Louis. David Backes and T.J. Oshie also scored for the Blues and Brian Elliott made 18 saves.

Eric Staal and Nathan Gerbe scored the Carolina goals.

With the game tied at 2-2, Steen gave the Blues the lead for good at 6:20 of the third period. He took a long pass from Polak, broke in alone on right wing and beat Carolina goalie Justin Peters with a wrist shot.

Oshie added an empty-net goal at 19:16 for the final margin.

The Blues have scored first in their past 10 games, and did so again Saturday when Polak converted Chris Stewart's centering pass at 9:25 of the second period. Backes scored 2:11 later with a shot from a bad angle to make it 2-0.

It appeared that the Blues were in position to add to their lead when Carolina received a bench minor for too many men at 15:05 of the period. Instead, the Hurricanes scored their first two short-handed goals of the season to tie the game.

First, Staal sneaked between the Blues defense for a breakaway and beat Elliott with a backhand at 15:37. Less than a minute later, Elliott mishandled the puck along the right boards. Riley Nash stole it and centered to Gerbe and he put it in the vacant net at 16:34.

NOTES: St. Louis, which had played the fewest games in the league coming into Saturday (17), will play seven more times before the end of the month starting Sunday in Washington. ... Carolina's Alexander Semin, who was hit with a hard check by Alex Pietrangelo in the first period, later left the game with what was announced as an upper body injury and did not return. ... Blues coach Ken Hitchcock earned his 618th win, moving him past Jacques Lemaire and into sole possession of ninth place on the wins list.
