 The eleventh ranked UNI Panthers overcame a sluggish start to beat the Bradley Braves 71-46 in the quarterfinal round of the Missouri Valley Conference postseason tournament in St. Louis.  The Panthers led by as many as 13 in the first half, but Bradley rallied to pull within 27-25 at halftime. In the second half the Panthers pulled away behind the hot shooting of senior Nate Buss off the bench who led the Panthers with 23 points and 6 rebounds.  UNI's Deon Mitchell scored 14 points to go along with 5 assists and three steals as the Panthers outscored the Braves 44-21 in the second half to win their first MVC Tournament game in five years.
