UNI Panthers Making Another Late Season Surge
The UNI men's basketball team won again Wednesday night topping Bradley at the McLeod Center 64-61. It was the Panther's 4th win in a row and 9th in their last 10 games. This all comes after an 0-5 start in the Missouri Valley Conference. And if this all sounds familiar, it should.
Last year UNI started 2-6 in the Valley. They went 9-1 the rest of the way, won the postseason tournament and won a first-round NCAA tournament game. Can the Panthers do it again? They've got some tough games remaining.
Saturday UNI is at Wichita State. The Shockers are tied atop the league standings at 13-1 with Illinois State, who the Panthers host next week. A road game at Indiana State is crammed in between. UNI sits a solid third in the league standings. If they want to shoot for something higher, the road map is right in front of them. And after all...they've been there before.
