Metro Sports Report

Uthoff: Can he really go wrong?

Either way, it seems as if Jarrod Uthoff has methodically worked himself into a winning situation.

Multiple news outlets, including Metro Sports Report, revealed over the weekend that Uthoff has trimmed his collegiate choices to Iowa State and Iowa. The former Cedar Rapids Jefferson star and former Mr. Iowa Basketball left Wisconsin in April.

His exit, or more precisely Badger Coach Bo Ryan’s original restrictions on his transfer, created a national media and Internet firestorm. The situation was the topic of sports talk shows nationwide and became juicy material for columnists near and far.

Upon his leaving Wisconsin, Uthoff reportedly was considering a transfer to several schools – Iowa, Iowa State, Creighton, Marquette and Florida among them. Now, it’s down to the Cyclones and Hawkeyes, two heated in-state rivals.

How can Uthoff go wrong between the two? I know, Cyclone and Hawkeye fans have their arguments and provincial opinions. But an Iowa guy is going to play in Iowa, and that’s what fan bases of both schools really want from Iowa prep stars, right?

Players enjoy Midnight Hoops league

The new Midnight Hoops summer basketball league opened to favorable reviews at Eby Fieldhouse Sunday afternoon.

The league features college players from Coe, Mount Mercy, Kirkwood and Upper Iowa, with a sprinkling of players from other schools and a pair of current Metro preps.

"It's a nice way to get up and down the court in the summer. I like it," said 2012 Kennedy grad Josiah Coleman, who is headed to Iowa Western Community College. "It's more physical, it's faster. It gets you prepared for college. I like that."

Reyner retires at Wash with runnerup trophy

IOWA CITY – Win or lose Saturday at the Class 2A girls state tennis tournament, Cedar Rapids Washington Coach Dan Reyner had decided it was going to be his final match.

After 35 years of coaching, he had wanted to go out on top with a high school championship. He thought this might be the year with the second-best singles player in the state and a solid lineup from top to bottom.

“Any one of our top four girls could probably be the No. 1 player on eight out of 10 teams in Iowa," he said.

The Warriors had finished third last year but came back with experience and a top-flight freshman. With three straight state titles under their belt, Reyner knew the Little Cyclones of Ames were again the ones to beat.
