Northern Iowa women’s basketball team won in dominating fashion on Friday night, beating the Loyola Ramblers 89-43. UNI improved to 19-6 overall and 12-2 in Missouri Valley Conference play.
 

Eleven of UNI’s 12 players scored at least one points against the Ramblers, turning in a balanced game across the board. The Panthers were led by Madison Weekly with 15 points and five assists while Mikaela Morgan added 13 points, shooting 66-percent from the floor.

The Panthers may have started the first quarter on a scoring drought, but they quickly caught on fire from the field, going on a 19-2 run to end the quarter. The runs continued for the Panthers into the second quarter, scoring 16 points while holding Loyola to just one in the last 5:16 of the half to go into halftime up 47-20.

In the third quarter, the Panthers shot 58-percent from the field with Morgan going a perfect 3-for-3 from the floor to score six of her 13 points. UNI put together another run on the Ramblers to continue to extend its lead, going on a 13-3 scoring surge to end the quarter up by 40 points.

The youth of the Panther squad continued to shine in the fourth quarter as sophomore Dariann Garrison-Nickerson scored a career-high eight points. UNI’s bench scored all of the Panthers’ 17 fourth quarter points, helping the Panthers to its 89-43 win.

The Panthers return to action on Sunday, Feb. 19 as they take on Indiana State in Terre Haute, Ind. The game is set for an 11 a.m. CT tip.
