The Panthers sprinted out to a big lead early, grabbing a 20-6 advantage six minutes into the game after four consecutive three-pointers from Deon Mitchell, Nate Buss, and Matt Bohannon. Northern Iowa shot 52% from the field and was led in scoring by Jake Koch, who posted 17 points and seven rebounds.
