Jennings scores 18 for Bethel in loss to IWU
MARION — Logansport product Rachel Jennings scored 18 points for the Bethel College women’s basketball team in a 69-64 loss at NAIA No. 5 Indiana Wesleyan on Saturday.
Until the final 90 seconds, Bethel (8-14, 3-7 Crossroads League) appeared poised to pull off an upset on the Wildcats’ home court. Yet, the Wildcats (19-3, 9-1) scored on their final 11 possessions and rallied furiously for the victory, overcoming an eight-point deficit with 1:45 left to play.
Bethel had controlled the tempo with its spread offense that frequently broke down the Wildcats’ No. 1 nationally-ranked defense. The Pilots were either knocking down 3-pointers (8-of-19) or driving to the basket for layups.
Rice’s team tops Sanders’ at Pro Bowl
HONOLULU (AP) — DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard pass for a touchdown and Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion with less than 1 minute to give Jerry Rice a win over Deion Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl on Sunday.
Baltimore’s Justin Tucker missed a 67-yard field goal on the game’s final play after missing a 66-yarder earlier in the game.
The touchdown and conversion gave Rice a comeback after Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles threw a 12-yard touchdown to Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron with less than 5 minutes to play to give Sanders a 21-14 lead.
The Cameron and Murray touchdowns were the only scores of the second half in a game that had eight turnovers — including six interceptions — and nine sacks.
Stallings rallies for win at Torrey
SAN DIEGO (AP) — In a tournament that was up for grabs, Scott Stallings hit a 4-iron worthy of a winner Sunday in the Farmers Insurance Open.
Stallings was in a five-way tie for the lead when he hit his second shot on the par-5 18th hole as hard as he could. It was enough to barely clear the water, and he took two putts from 40 feet for birdie and a 4-under 68 at Torrey Pines.
