The Northern Iowa Panthers are simply playing the better ball, they've had some success on the road, and they beat NIU by 8 points a month ago. Northern Iowa can't afford to blow a game like this as it continues to fight for a quality seed in the MVC Tournament. We're only laying a bucket. Give me Northern Iowa.
