The UNI basketball team opens the regular season on Saturday with a visit to Ohio University. There are several new faces on the roster this season but one of the veterans is off to am impressive start.

Junior forward Seth Tuttle averaged 21 points and 11 and a half rebounds in two exhibition games. “He has played very well and I’m anxious to see what  he’s like when we get to Saturday,” UNI coach Ben Jacobson says.

He says Tuttle is a much better player than last season as he worked harder this summer in the weight room and more so in the gym.
