Panthers roll past Missouri State for 13th straight win

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KWWL) -

 UNI rolled through the first half and cruised down the stretch as the 13th ranked Panthers defeated Missouri State 68-57 in a game that was much more lopsided than the final score would suggest. The win was the 13th in a row for Northern Iowa.

Seth Tuttle led the way with 22 points. Deon Mitchell and Jeremy Morgan each added 11 in the win.

The Panthers took control out of the gate. UNI (24-2, 13-1 MVC) drilled a season high 9 3-pointers in the first half to lead 42-20 at the break. Seven different players hit threes as the team finished the game 12 of 26 from beyond the arc.

Camryn Boone scored 14 and recorded 6 rebounds to lead Missouri State (9-17, 3-11 MVC).

UNI head coach Ben Jacobson became the 8th coach in Missouri Valley Conference history to reach 100 total conference wins.
