NOTES

•The Big 12 Conference said it will not discipline Iowa State after students stormed the court following a game in a scene that left a newspaper columnist with a broken leg. The league said Iowa State handled the postgame celebration consistent with Big 12 guidelines for sportsmanship and ethical conduct, and considers the matter resolved. Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register was knocked over while walking from press row to a postgame news conference Thursday after fans rushed the court in nearby Ames following Iowa State's 83-82 home win over rival Iowa. Peterson broke the tibia and fibia in his left leg, but said Friday he has no problem with what happened. "If fans want to storm the court, they're going to do it," Peterson told The Associated Press in his room at a Des Moines area hospital. "It happens everywhere. I mean, this is just this year's incident ... it just so happens that it happened to me. I think the Big 12 will look at it not just because of this. I think they've probably been looking at it for a while."
