CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Adam Koch scored 25 points, including a tip-in with one second left, to lead Northern Iowa to a 69-67 double overtime win over Illinois State on Tuesday night.

Illinois State (22-7, 11-6) missed baskets at the ends of regulation and the first overtime that would have won the game. The Panthers held Redbird star Osiris Eldridge scoreless in the first half and led 29-28 at the break.

Jordan Eglseder scored 11 points and Travis Brown added 10 points for the Panthers.

Brandon Sampay scored a career-high 19 points and 12 rebounds for Illinois State. Emmanuel Holloway and Champ Oguchi each added 13 points and Lloyd Phillips had 10.
