CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Wichita State women came to UNI riding a 20 game winning streak.  The 24th ranked Shockers saw that streak end as the Panthers pulled the upset 80-71.

Brittni Donaldson led UNI with a career high 22 points. Jen Keitel added 19 points and 6 rebounds for the Panthers in the win.

UNI seemed to control most of the ball game, leading by as much as 15 in the first half.  Wichita State, however, made it interesting after Alex Harden hit a 3 pointer in the second to pull the Shockers within 3, 51-48.

The Panthers responded with an 8-1 run to put the game away.

The win moved UNI (13-11, 9-4 MVC) in to second place in the Missouri Valley Conference.
