ORLANDO (KWWL) -

UNI Men's Basketball knocks off Oklahoma 73-67 in the semifinals of the Tire Pros Invitational Tournament in Orlando, Florida.  The Panthers were led by Klint Carlson, who had 22 points on 7-13 shooting.  

Jeremy Morgan didn't shoot well (4-15), but finished with 17 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 steals, to go along with some clutch free throws.  UNI stormed back from a 16-point deficit in the second half, but gave up the lead on an Oklahoma three-pointer to send it into overtime.

However, the Panthers were able to hang on after another big three from Carlson.  The Panthers will now face #11 Xavier in the tournament championship Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
