Panthers drop Missouri State, remain perfect at home

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

 Seth Tuttle scored a team high 22 points as the UNI basketball team dropped Missouri State 60-46 to remain perfect at home this season.

UNI's defense once again did much of the work as the Panthers (16-2, 5-1 MVC) held the Bears to just 36% shooting from the floor. Deon Mitchell dropped 11 and Marvin Singleton added 10, joining Tuttle in double figures.

From the opening tip, it was clear Missouri State (8-10, 2-4 MVC) had no match for Tuttle. The Panther big man scored 16 in the first 20 minutes as UNI opened up a 32-20 lead at halftime. The Bears never got any closer than to within 8 points of the Panthers in the second half.

Next up, UNI hosts Indiana State on Wednesday.
