The UNI men look to break out of their slump when they host Evansville tonight at the UNI-Dome. Northern Iowa has dropped four out of their last six games. Panthers coach Greg McDermott feels his team needs to focus better on their execution. He says they aren’t good enough to not do the little things well and be successful. McDermott says the Panther’s problems have been caused by errors throughout the team. He says some of the mistakes are made by younger players and that’s understandable. He says when the veteran players make the mistakes, those are things that have to be corrected in a hurry.UNI is currently 14-5 and 5-5 in the Missouri Valley Conference. Evansville is 4-7 in the Valley and won the first matchup of the season 92-73 on a night it seemed coach Steve Merfeld’s team could not miss. Merfeld says it was one of those nights where everyone was playing well, and he says you can count on that happing maybe two or three times a year. Merfeld says while the Panthers have gone through a tough stretch they remain one of the Valley’s top teams. He says UNI got off to a great start and have had a difficult combination of games. He says going into the UNI-Dome is difficult and they’re going to have to play great to compete there.
