CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

UNI finished off a season sweep of Illinois State and made Tanya Warren just the fifth coach in Missouri Valley Conference history to win 200 career games. The Panthers used a late surge to top the Redbirds 66-48.  

"“It takes a village, I’ve been extremely blessed to be surround by amazing people,” Warren said following the win. “Coach Brad Nelson has been with me for every single one of them, coach KK Armstrong has played for a lot of them and has now come back to be apart of it as a coach. Coach Steven Fennelly has also been a fantastic addition to our staff.”

After leading by seven at half, the Panthers faltered a bit, falling behind 37-36 in the 3rd quarter. UNI finished the game on a 30-11 run to capture their 10th conference win of the season.

 Megan Maahs led Panthers with 18 points. Ellie Howell chipped in 13 more in the win.
