UNI is looking to regroup after being handled by the Iowa Hawkeyes 69-46 on Saturday in the Big Four Classic.

The Panthers struggled against the Hawkeyes---scoring just 16 first half points and shooting just 27 percent from the field while being outrebounded 43 to 29.

Despite being thoroughly dominated by the Hawkeyes--- UNI head coach Ben Jacobson found a sliver lining in the Panthers' performance...

"As it might sound there were some positive things that happened in that game...Iowa is averaging close to 98 points a game and they only had 34 points at halftime...and in a half when we did not play very good offensively...some to do with the way they defended and some to do with our game plan offensively some to do with some guys taking some shots that were tougher and some to do with us missing some good opportunities."

UNI travels to face #8 North Carolina on Wednesday night in Chapel Hill.
