Robbie Sieverding had 30-points and iced the game with two free throws with seven seconds remaining as Northern Iowa shocked 11th-ranked Iowa 78-76 last night in the UNI-Dome. He says he’s done it a thousand times on playgrounds, but it was a little different with thousands of people looking on.Sieverding feels a win like that can jump start the program by getting the fans to come to the games.Sieverding says the Panthers gave a complete effort and is happy it was enough to get the win.Iowa coach Steve Alford says his team was clearly outplayed. He says it would’ve been sad had they come back and won the game as he says the tougher team won the game. He says it was a lot of fun to watch UNI play, even though he was on the other side of the game. Alford hopes the loss will serve as a wake-up call. He says his team doesn’t understand defensive stops and get happy with themselves. Alford says his team is not as good as they think they are and he says he told the team he wishes they’d been behind a little longer so they could hear the “overrated” chants a little longer. Alford says hopefully the game will be a wake up call.
