UNI’s Jordan Eglseder missed two free throws that could have tied the game or given his team the lead with five seconds to go and time ran out as Drake upset the league leading Panthers 47-46 in Cedar Falls.
The loss drops UNI into a first place tie with Creighton in the Missouri Valley. UNI had fought back against Drake and worked the final shot to Eglseder, who was fouled.
UNI is now 12-4 in the MVC and 18-9 overall. Drake is 16-12 overall and 7-9 in the conference.
