Kirkwood Community College - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

KCC game with Little Priest canceled

The women's basketball game scheduled for Thursday night between Kirkwood and the Little Priest Tribal College at Johnson Hall has been canceled.

The team from Little Priest Tribal College was supposed to leave home at 10 a.m. Thursday for the trip to Cedar Rapids, but only one player reported for the bus trip and the game was called off.

The game is being called a "no contest" rather than a forfeit. Kirkwood will not receive a victory.

Little Priest Tribal College lost to Iowa Central Community College, 113-53, in Fort Dodge Wednesday night and returned to its campuses in Winnebago (Neb.) and Sioux City rather than coming straight to Cedar Rapids.

Little Priest Tribal College has been accredited by the NJCAA and would like to join the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference as a full-fledged member in the future once its probationary period is over.

 

Kirkwood hosts Little Priest Tribal College

The Little Priest Tribal College is a small school with approximately 150 students on its campuses in Winnebago (Neb.) and Sioux City, but the Warriors have big dreams of being able to compete with the other junior colleges in Iowa.

Little Priest became an associate member of the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference this year and its women's basketball team will play a regular-season game against Kirkwood at Johnson Hall Thursday night at 5:30.

The school was named after Chief Little Priest, a former chief of the Winnebago Tribe, and is an accredited member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium. The Warriors hope to become a full-fledged member of the ICCAC in the future, but they are currently in a probationary phase as they begin athletic competition.

The Little Priest Tribal College women's basketball team is playing a 12-game schedule this season. The Lady Warriors were winless heading into Wednesday night's game at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge.

Kirkwood falls to Iowa Western in OT

These rematches are killing the Kirkwood men's basketball team.

It happened again Saturday when the eighth-ranked Eagles blew a 16-point lead and lost to Iowa Western, 82-76, in overtime at Johnson Hall.

This is the third time Kirkwood (10-3) has lost a rematch with an opponent after beating them the first time around.

The Eagles topped John Wood 84-63 in their first meeting this season, then dropped the rematch 75-65. They beat Southeastern 72-63 the first time, then got hammered 95-66 in the rematch.

And now it's happened with Iowa Western.

Kirkwood women roll by Marshalltown

The Kirkwood women's basketball team was credited with 26 assists on its 27 field goals during Saturday's 80-45 romp past Marshalltown at Johnson Hall.

That tells you one of two things: Either the official statistician was extremely generous handing out assists or the seventh-ranked Eagles passed the ball extremely well.

It was the latter.

"We were unselfish," said Kirkwood Coach Kim Muhl. "That's the big thing with this group. When they start passing the ball, they're much better."

Tyra Polite collected seven assists and Taylor Silva had five to lead the way, but 10 different Eagles had at least one assist as Kirkwood zipped the ball around the floor.

"We're starting to get better," said Muhl after his club raised its record to 8-4 with a strong overall performance.

No.3 Kirkwood men drilled by SCC

WEST BURLINGTON - What a difference three weeks can make in the life of a men's basketball team.

The third-ranked Kirkwood Eagles were plastered by Southeastern Community College, 95-66, Saturday night in West Burlington.

The 29-point shellacking came exactly 21 days after the Eagles spanked SCC, 72-63, in Cedar Rapids on Nov. 15.

Josh Ross popped in four 3-pointers and scored 22 points for the winners.

No.3 Eagles dumped by John Wood

The Kirkwood men's basketball team went from being unloved and unranked all the way to No. 3 in the new national poll Tuesday, but the glossy achievement turned sour by the end of the night.

The John Wood Blazers dominated the sluggish Eagles from start to finish and handed Kirkwood its first loss of the season, 75-65, in a non-conference game at Johnson Hall.

"We're not the No. 3 team in the country. Bottom line," proclaimed unhappy Kirkwood Coach Bryan Petersen, whose club fell to 9-1.

They certainly were not the No. 3 team Tuesday night. The Eagles shot poorly from the field, had trouble finishing at the rim, played porous defense and got pounded on the backboards.

The Eagles belted John Wood by 21 points when they met four weeks ago in Quincy, Ill., but this was an entirely different story. The Blazers surged to a 17-point lead in the first half and Kirkwood never fully recovered.

KCC women knock off Australians

Kirkwood Coach Kim Muhl says the Eagles are still looking for their identity as a basketball team this season, but that was better than Kirsten Larson's predicament Tuesday night.

She was looking for part of a front tooth.

Larson popped in three 3-pointers and scored 13 points but was inured in the second half during Kirkwood's 79-59 victory over the South Australia Institute of Sports at Johnson Hall.

Larson banged heads with Sophie Houral of Australia, bit through her upper lip and lost part of a tooth in the collision. Her mouth was a bloody mess and she spent the rest of the game with an ice bag on her face.

"Don't kiss anyone tonight," teased Muhl after the game.
