UNI loses 63-60 heartbreaker at #23 Creighton

Antoine Young scored a season-high 21 points, Doug McDermott added 14 and No. 23 Creighton beat Northern Iowa 63-60 Tuesday night.

Young made 9 of 14 shots, with his only 3-pointer giving the Bluejays a five-point lead with 2 minutes left.

The Bluejays (14-2, 4-1 Missouri Valley Conference) held the Panthers (12-5, 2-3) without a field goal for 11 1/2 minutes over the first and second halves but could never build a safe lead.

UNI had a chance to tie it in the last minute after Josh Jones was called for over-and-back against the Panthers' press.

Jake Koch hit a short jumper to pull UNI to 61-60 with 19 seconds, but Creighton's Grant Gibbs made two free throws for the final margin.

Marc Sonnen scored a season-high 15 points for Northern Iowa -- all in the first half.

The Panthers went 8 of 12 from 3-point range in the first half to build a double-digit lead.
