The Northern Iowa Panthers will try to match a season-high five game winning streak on Wednesday night when they host Missouri State in Missouri Valley Conference play. Both teams are 6-6 in the league race.
“There is no question we are playing better”, said UNI coach Ben Jacobson. “We are playing better at both ends and the confidence of the guys is better.”
Missouri State beat UNI 59-58 in their first meeting in Springfield.
“We are playing against a team that has seen a lot of adversity this year and their young guys and new guys have played well.”
Missouri State is 10-14 overall and the Panthers are 14-11.
