CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KCRG) - Northern Iowa received some votes in the AP Poll earlier this week, but could break the top-25 pretty soon. The Panthers collected their 11th win of the season after beating Marshall on Sunday, 88-80.
Five players finished in double figures. A.J. Green led all scorers with 24 points. Trae Berhow recorded a double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds.
Marshall kept the game close, but the key for UNI was going 27-of-33 at the free throw line.
The Panthers start conference play with a road game against Illinois State on New Year's Eve.
