  • DIEHARD FANS: Cold And Wet Can’t Stop I-Cubs Crowd

    The Iowa Cubs have seen worse opening days. It snowed last year. But Thursday’s cold and wet forecast kept most fans away but not the diehards though. Most of the fans weathered the cold, rain and wind, but not all are that diehard. Some are just smart. A heater, a good view, a dry seat, that’s the life inside the clubhouse. The players don’t reward the brave fans. Memphis Redbirds take it 10-2.

  • OPENING DAY: I-Cubs Prepare For Season Opener

    The I-Cubs are preparing the Sec Taylor Field at Principal Park for Thursday night’s home opener. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 40s or high 30s. The unpredictable Iowa weather keeps the groundskeepers guessing, and this year, they’ve only had a few days to work the field into game-shape. The first home game hits sooner than many years. “Being in Iowa you never know what you’re going to get. We’re used to that. We alternate years so last […]

  • STILL STANDING: Moving Forward Without Niang

    The diagnosis of Georges Niang’s broken right foot took the wind out of Iowa State’s sails. Their 18-point second round win over NC Central felt like a loss, but if there was a stat for resiliency, Iowa State would lead the country. Nothing seems to bother this group. “It’s a tough blow obviously,” said coach Fred Hoiberg before Saturday’s practice in San Antonio, “We’ll miss him, but I can promise you this, we’ll here Georges and he’ll be out there […]

  • BIG 12 CHAMPS: Cyclones Win In KC

    Patience pays off. Cyclones win their first Big XII Tournament Championship in 14 years. It also took a while for ISU to get into the flow of the game, but the final eight minutes belonged to the Cyclones. Iowa State beats Baylor 74-65. DeAndre Kane finishes with 17 points and 7 rebounds, and was named tournament MVP. Along with Kane, Melvin Ejim and Georges Niang were named to the All-Tournament team.

  • SPECIAL SHOT: Opponents Share Small Victory

    The Nevada Cubs have a newfound appreciation for the privilege of playing basketball. Last week the Cubs won easily but learned the most when a girl from the opposing team Gilbert made a basket. This time of year only one thing matters – making it to state. “The opportunity to get to Wells Fargo is something that hasn`t happened here in Nevada since I think the 60’s,” Nevada head coach Kristen Meyer said. The Cubs are focused, but before they […]

Jessica Hiney isn`t used to the spotlight but she`s always imagined this day. “I love basketball. I’ve loved it ever since I was a little kid,” Jessica said. Her friends call her caring. Her coach says she`s second to none. “I had the pleasure of being her coach for three years. She would do anything. Without question, the best manager I ever had,” former […]

    Monday night, Dallas Center-Grimes star Austin Kloewer left the Mustangs’ playoff game with a concussion. Kloewer’s helmet appeared warped from impact.

    MURPHY’S LAW: RVTV Goes Out With A Bang

    By Andy Fales We’ve reached the end of the greatest week of RVTV ever. I’m not just saying that to be nice; I mean it. We’ve had some fantastic stops in past years–Knoxville, Albia, Nevada, Oskaloosa, and Carroll really stood out–but every single stop this week was off-the-charts great. We estimate that there were at least 1,000 people at each stop we made, and each of them had its own outstanding feature. Monday – Creston Mondays are sometimes tough for […]
