When the U.N.I. Panthers return to action on Tuesday night at home against Creighton they will be without senior center Jordan Egelseder. The Bellevue native was arrested for drunken driving early Sunday morning and has been suspended for the next three games.
He is averaging more than 12 points and seven and a half rebounds per game. The Panthers are 22-3 overall and 13-2 in the valley after a 68-59 loss at Bradley. Wichita State remained three games behind with three to go after edging Missouri state 66-64 last night.
U.N.I. was outscored 45-27 in the second half after they led at the halftime break 32-23.
