Softball: Allderdice, Carrick still in search of first wins

Written by Brad Everett on .

For the Allderdice and Carrick softball teams, the 2014 season has been anything but sweet thus far.

Heading into Friday, both the Dragons and Raiders were still in search of their first win. The Dragons were 0-4 overall, 0-4 in Class AAAA Section 2. The Raiders were 0-4 overall, 0-4 in Class AAA Section 2.

This is the second year these teams, along with fellow City League team Brashear, are competing in the WPIAL. A season ago, Allderdice went 3-15, Carrick 1-16 and Brashear 7-10.

Allderdice has been much more competitive than Carrick this season. The Dragons lost to Oakland Catholic, 2-1, on Thursday, and one of their other losses was to Penn Hills, 7-0. Carrick, on the other hand, has dropped all of its games by at least 16 runs.


Basketball: Season comes to an end for Kane and Iowa State

Written by Brad Everett on .

DeAndre Kane's dream season at Iowa State and outstanding college basketball career has come to an end.

Kane and his teammates fell to Connecticut, 81-76, in an NCAA tournament Sweet 16 game last Friday at Madison Square Garden.

The loss capped a memorable season for Kane, his first and only at Iowa State after transferring from Marshall. When it comes to "impact transfers," it typically doesn't get much better than what Kane provided to an Iowa State team that had one of its best seasons in school history. The Cyclones finished 28-8.
