CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The UNI Panthers are once again dance. UNI drew an 11 seed in the west region and will open against 6th seeded Texas in Oklahoma City.

The Panthers advanced to the tournament following Wes Washpun's last second jumper to knock off Evansville in the Missouri Valley tournament a week ago. That win clinched UNI's second straight bid to the NCAA tournament.

The Panthers and Longhorns are set to tip off on Friday.
