All that stands between the UNI Panthers and at least a share of the Missouri Valley Conference title is a Saturday home game against Evansville.

Adam Koch’s put back beat the buzzer at the end of the second overtime as the Panthers won a heart stopper at Illinois State 69-67.

The officials went to the video monitor before ruling the basket good. At 13-4 the Panthers remain tied with Creighton after the Blue Jays won at Missouri State.
