U.N.I. used a 12-3 run in the second half top take command in a 71-66 win over Creighton in Cedar Falls. Kwadzo Ahelegbe poured in a season-high 26 points to lead the Panthers.
U.N.I. coach Ben Jacobson says Ahelegbe came out determined to get them started early and is finding a lot of ways to get himself basket. He says the senior is also finding ways to get the ball to others and that has been big in the last four or five games.
A key stat was turnovers. Creighton had 18 while the Panthers committed only seven. Jacobson says the guards are doing a great job right now, especially with what they are asking them to do.
U.N.I. is now 7-3 in the Valley.
