UNI women’s basketball player Alex Cook moved into the record books on Saturday. Cook became just the 4th women’s player in Missouri Valley Conference history to score over a thousand-points and grab one-thousand rebounds in her career. Cook pulled down 14-rebounds as UNI took over sole possession of 2nd place in the Valley with a 65-58 victory over Creighton. The senior from Decorah finished the game strong after recording just two-rebounds at halftime. Cook felt the emotions of playing her final game at home may have caught up to her to begin the game. She says it was more emotional than what she thought it would be. Cook feels this has been a special season for her and the Panthers. She says she hasn’t even had time to think about it. She says the team is where it’s at because of the team effort and the way they play together. UNI will return to action on Thursday when they play at Wichita State.
