BOYS STATE TOURNAMENT AT THE WELLS FARGO ARENA IN DES MOINES

DES MOINES — 6’5″ Brayden Vold’s short left-handed hook in the middle of the lane off an inbounds pass bounced a couple of times on the rim before falling into the net with .6 of a second to play, lifting West Fork to a 55-53 win over Remsen St. Mary’s Monday afternoon during the quarterfinal round of the 1A boys State basketball tournament at the Wells Fargo Arena.  On a day full of surprises that saw number-one seed Lake Mills and number-three seed Remsen St. Mary’s eliminated in the first round and number-two seed Bishop Garrigan just narrowly escaping with a three-point opening round victory, the race for the Class 1A State title is wide open.  Remsen St. Mary’s and West Fork hooked up in a titanic battle Monday in a game that featured 16 lead changes and 12 ties.  The two were tied 18-all after the first quarter with St. Mary’s leading 30-29 at halftime.  The Hawks opened the second half with an 11-2 run to take a 41-31 lead before the Warhawks closed the quarter with a 10-0 run that sent the two into the final quarter tied 41-all.  Spencer Schorg closed out his career with 19 points while Skylar Waldschmitt added 12 for St. Mary’s.  Jakob Washington had 12 for West Fork with teammates Ian Latham and Kayden Ames added ten each.  Remsen St. Mary’s, which exited in the first round for the first time in four State tournament visits, ends the season at 22-4.  West Fork advances to Wednesday’s semifinals with a 24-2 record.

AP-SportsMinute

UNDATED (AP) – The world’s sports schedule is cratering at warp speed due to coronavirus. College sports officials called off the NCAA basketball tournament, making it the biggest event to be canceled since the virus started spreading. Leaders in the NBA, NHL, Major League Baseball, tennis and soccer also canceled or postponed events. All decided the risk of playing games with the threat of the virus hanging over them was too great. The PGA has decided to cancel the remainder of The Players Championship, along with three tournaments leading up to The Masters. Tour officials had previously planned to ban spectators for at least the next month, beginning with the second round today at TPC Sawgrass.

UNDATED (AP) – IndyCar and NASCAR are still planning to race this weekend, but without spectators. IndyCar is scheduled to open its season Sunday on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida. Only essential personnel will be permitted to attend, and competitors will have to undergo a questionnaire for health screening before entry. Today’s practice sessions and other events have been canceled. NASCAR will race this week at Atlanta and next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway under similar restrictions.

UNDATED (AP) – The first four races of the Formula One season have been called off because of the virus. Organizers canceled the season-opening Australian Grand Prix just hours ahead of the first official practice sessions, after McLaren withdrew because one of its team members tested positive for the virus. Now the Bahrain and Vietnam Grand Prix races have also been postponed. The China Grand Prix was postponed previously. No new dates have been set for the races but governing body FIA says it expects to begin the F1 season in May when it reaches Europe with the Dutch GP.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) – The Greek Olympic committee has suspended the rest of its torch relay because of the “unexpectedly large crowd” that gathered to watch despite repeated requests for the public to stay away to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The committee said a large crowd had gathered to watch the flame for the Tokyo Olympics pass through the southern Greek town of Sparta. The flame was lit yesterday at the birthplace of the games in Ancient Olympia in a pared-down ceremony.

TOKYO (AP) – President Donald Trump’s suggestion to postpone the Tokyo Olympics for a year because of the spreading virus was immediately shot down by Japan’s Olympic minister. Seiko Hashimoto is a former Olympic medalist. She says “the IOC and the organizing committee are not considering cancellation or a postponement – absolutely not at all.” She told a news conference in Tokyo that organizers are planning to open the games as scheduled on July 24. Trump made the suggesting while speaking to reporters at the White House yesterday.

UNDATED (AP) – The Masters has been postponed, while NASCAR and IndyCar will suspend competition out of concern for the COVID-19 pandemic. Masters chairman Fred Ridley said he hoped the decision puts Augusta National in the best position to host the event and two other amateur tourneys but did not indicate when the Masters could be played. NASCAR called off Sunday’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway and next weekend’s events at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

UNDATED (AP) – The NCAA will extend the eligibility of athletes on spring sports teams one year to make up for the season lost to the new coronavirus. The decision comes after the NCAA announced Thursday that its winter and spring championships would be canceled as a precaution against the spread of the new coronavirus. The details of how the extra eligibility will work are still being ironed out.

UNDATED (AP) -NCAA basketball tournament organizers scrambled to devise a plan for a 16-team event to salvage the postseason before deciding to cancel the events. NCAA vice president of men’s basketball Dan Gavitt told AP yesterday that he started to consider ways of condensing the tournament Wednesday night after the NBA announced the suspension of its season. The idea was to have the selection committee choose the top 16 teams in the country and hold a tournament between March 26-30.

UNDATED (AP) – The Southeastern Conference is suspending all athletic activities at least through April 15 due to continuing developments related to the coronavirus. The events called off include competitions, team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings. SEC athletics programs ceased practices, individual and team workouts effective yesterday.

UNDATED (AP) – The English Premier League and the Champions League are both suspended. Matches in England will be stopped until at least April 3 after five Premier League clubs said some players or staff were in self-isolation. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for the virus, as has Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi. The German soccer league has suspended its season, dropping a plan to play this weekend in empty stadiums.

 

 

SUNDAY SPORTS NEWS – March 15

DETROIT (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Pistons forward Christian Wood has contracted the virus and is feeling fine. The team confirmed it had a player who tested positive without revealing his name. Wood’s diagnosis was revealed one week after he played against the Utah Jazz, spending much of that night matched up with Rudy Gobert. The NBA opted to suspend its season Wednesday, immediately after Gobert became the first league player to test positive.

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says his country still intends to host the Olympic Games in Tokyo as planned. He says the virus outbreak hasn’t reached a point in Japan that requires him to declare a national emergency like the United States and parts of Europe. Abe says Japan is continuing to “coordinate well” with the International Olympic Committee. President Donald Trump suggested this week that Japan should consider postponing the Olympics, which are scheduled to open July 24.

UNDATED (AP) — The Pac-12 Conference has canceled all spring sports and championships following a meeting of conference executives and athletic directors. The conference also announced that all organized team activities are not allowed until at least March 29, when that decision will be revisited. The smaller Southland Conference also announced a similar move.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals have released relief pitcher Hunter Strickland in a series of moves by the reigning World Series champs. Strickland was expected to stabilize Washington’s bullpen after being acquired from Seattle at the July 31 trade deadline last season, but he recorded a 5.14 ERA in 21 innings over 24 appearances for the Nationals. He didn’t pitch for the Nats during the postseason.

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) — Rick Pitino is the new head basketball coach at Iona, replacing Tim Cluess. Pitino was the first coach to take three different schools to the NCAA Final Four, doing it with Louisville, Kentucky and Providence. He won national championships with the 2013 Cardinals and 1996 Wildcats, although his Louisville title was vacated over NCAA violations involving the team’s director of basketball operations. The 67-year-old Pitino has a 770-271 overall record in college.
