Panthers win: going to the dance

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI (KWWL) -- The University of Northern Iowa Panthers won 60-57 over the Illinois St. Redbirds Sunday afternoon, clenching a ticket to the NCAA Tournament later this month.

The win in the final round of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament came after a tie in regulation, and a nailbiter end to overtime.

The last time UNI was in the NCAA Tournament was in 2006, when they lost to Georgetown in the first round 54-49.  That game was played in Dayton, Ohio.
