Northern Iowa set to face familiar foe in CIT quarterfinals tonight

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The University of Northern Iowa Panthers are taking on an all-too familiar foe in the quarterfinals of the College Insider.com Tournament tonight -- the Bradley Braves.

The Panthers took both regular season contests against their Missouri Valley counterparts. On Jan. 12, in Cedar Falls, UNI throttled the Braves 84-53.

In Peoria, on Feb. 10, the game was much closer, but UNI got out with the 68-65 win.

The Panthers do know that it isn't easy to beat the same team three times in one season. After taking both regular season games against Illinois State, the Panthers fell to the Redbirds in the first round of the MVC Tournament.

UNI has posted wins against North Dakota and Illinois-Chicago to get to the quarterfinals of the CIT.  Bradley has notched wins against Green Bay and Tulane.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the McLeod Center.

By the afternoon, Scales Pointe Campground and Marina in North Liberty, was full of RVs, tents, and houseboats ready to celebrate the Memorial Day weekend. "We don't worry about the weather. We just put a tent up, put a poncho on, and drink in the rain," Mike Kirk said. Kirk said he's been camping at the same spot for five years now and that it's the best place to be. ...More >>
