Northern Iowa looks to bounce back from a home loss to Indiana State when the Panthers host Missouri Valley co-leader Southern Illinois. Robbie Sieverding was held without a field goal in the loss to Indiana State and U-N-I coach Greg McDermott says Sieverding needs the ball at crunch time.McDermott says his relationship with Sieverding has been a big part of their success. He says they got off on the right foot and have a low-key relationship in which he can joke with Sieverding. McDermott says he likes to have that approach with all his players so they can offer input on what’s going on.
