UNI looks to build on a four-game winning streak tonight as the Panthers host Illinois State. The Panthers downed the Redbirds on the road in their first meeting back in December.UNI coach Greg McDermott says they were able to get the ball inside the first time they played, and that loosened up some other things. It has been a struggle for the Redbirds this season. They are 5-11 overall and just 1-7 in the Valley. McDermott says they’ve been competitive, but haven’t been able to find a way to win at the end of games. Illinois State coach Porter Moser says the inside duo of David Gruber and Matt Scniederman set the tone for the Panthers as he says Gruber is hard to guard one-on-one. He says if you trap Gruber, Schneiderman then can hurt you from outside.UNI is 11-5 overall.
