Posted: Updated:
NORMAL, Ill. (KWWL) -

 Nate Buss got it done. The Panther sharp-shooter drilled a 3 with 5.2 seconds remaining that would be the difference as UNI rallied to defeat Illinois State 54-53.

Seth Tuttle let the way with a double-double, 21 points and 10 rebounds. He was the only Panther to reach double digits.

The Panthers looked like they were on their way to a 2nd conference loss as midway through the second half, the Redbirds went on a 20-3 run. Illinois State would lead 46-34 with under 11 minutes remaining. UNI, however, would finish the game on a 20-7 run to pick up the victory and remain just one game behind first place Wichita State.

UNI travels to Southern Illinois on Wednesday.
