DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Anthony James scored a team high 26 as UNI took care of Drake 83-66 Saturday night in the Knapp Center.  The win gives UNI the mythical state title after the Panthers defeated Iowa and Iowa State earlier in the season.

Jake Koch added 18 for UNI in the victory.  The Panthers put a tight game away midway through the second half during a 13-2 run.  UNI also got some big points at the charity stripe knocking down 27 of 34 free throw attempts.

The Panthers (12-4, 2-2 Missouri Valley) hit the road to face league favorite Creighton on Tuesday night.
