6:16 am
that momentum continued for the bulldogs through the second half. every time iowa state would start scoring, drake answered right back. drake ended up taking the game 74-70, their first win over iowa state since 2009. and more big news for drake this morning, the bulldog's men's soccer team beat siu edwardsville sunday, to take the missouri valley conference title. final score was 1-0. so drake moves on to the ncaa tournament. they'll find out where they're placed in the bracket later today. a good weekend for drake. elizabeth: economic headlines now, wall street will try to bounce back from a tough week last week. on friday, the dow fell almost 203 points. the nasdaq ended the day down, 77 points. and the s and p 500 was down about 23. kia motors is recalling thousands of cars this morning, warning there may be a problem with the vehicles' steering controls. the recall affects 260,000 kia souls from 2014 and 2015, because a mechanical issue with the steering wheel could cause drivers to lose control.

and want a future to believe in. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung, it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto . hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.

xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . >> the weather is never more than five minutes away. only on kcci 8 news this morning. metinka: waking up to a soggy morning at about 10 minutes
