CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The University of Northern Iowa men's basketball team improved to 4-5 on the season with a 55-50 win over Savannah State on Tuesday in the McLeod Center.

UNI junior Seth Tuttle led the Panther scoring effort with 17 points.

Savannah State (2-8 overall) cut the lead to three with :02 left in the game but Tuttle hit a pair of free throws with 0.4 seconds left to ice the victory.
