First place in the Missouri Valley women’s basketball race will be on the line tonight in Cedar Falls when UNI hosts Illinois State.

Both teams are 12-2 in the Valley and the Panthers won the first meeting 74-64 back on New Years Day.

“They are a lot different and we are a lot different but yet we are really similar”, said Panther coach Tanya Warren. “They score in a variety and they are going to make you play toward your weaknesses. What a fun game.”

The Panthers are riding a five game winning streak and are 17-6 overall.
