A controversial ending last night in the UNI-Dome. Brooks McKowen hit a free throw with no time left as UNI edged Drake 61-60 in Missouri Valley action. Chaun Brooks hit a three pointer for the Bulldogs with ten seconds remaining to tie the game at 60. McKowen drove the right baseline and Drake’s Klayton Korver was whistled for a foul as time expired.Drake coach Tom Davis on his post-game show on KRNT in Des Moines said he had no clue as to whether or not is was a foul. He says it’s one of those calls officials don’t normally make to decide a game. Davis says it was a tough way to end a game. It was another in a growing string of last second losses for the Bulldogs. Davis says, “It’s a heartbreaker.” But he says the close loses have shown how close they’re becoming to getting the wins on the road. He says though to win you have to go on the road and overcome officials, overcome the other team and get the win.Grant Stout and Eric Crawford each had 12-points for UNI. Ben Jacobsen added 11 and said the Panthers were happy with the win. He says to play as bad as they did and still win was good. UNI improves to 9-6 in the Valley.
