UNI falls to Illinois State 73-65 at the MVC Tournament

Posted:
ST. LOUIS (KWWL) -

The third time proved to not be a charm for the UNI Men's basketball team--as the Redbirds knocked the Panthers out of the MVC Postseason Tournament 73-65. UNI swept the Redbirds during the regular season--beating Illinois State just six days ago in Cedar Falls.

The Redbirds' Tyler Brown scored 17 first half points as they built a 26-11 first half lead. UNI finished the first half on a 24 to 8 run to take a 35-34 halftime lead. But Illinois State outscored the Panthers 39-30 in the second to advance to play Wichita State in Saturday's semifinal round.  UNI finishes the regular season with an 18-14 record.
