UNI Men's Basketball Media Day

The 2008-2009 Northern Iowa Men's Basketball team is looking to recapture the success of its recent past.

From 2004 to 2006 the panthers made three straight trips to the NCAA tournament. But despite winning 18 games each of the last two seasons-- the Panthers were not invited to the big dance.

Today is media day day for the panthers...

UNI returns six of the top ten scorers from a squad that tied for fifth in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Panthers also return point guard Kwadzo Ahelegbe who was expected to start before missing all of last season with a shoulder injury.

Northern Iowa head coach Ben Jacobson says the expectations are always high for his program.
