Northern Iowa Pummels Iowa State, 99-82
Two soon-to-be Iowa opponents played tonight in a game that surprisingly wasn't even close. Iowa plays Northern Iowa next Tuesday, and the Panthers are looking like a more and more formidable challenger with each game they play. Recall that they took eventual Final Four team Georgia Tech down to the wire in last year's NCAA tournament. They fell to Cincinnati in double-OT last week, after leading by as many as 18 (don't quote me on that), before crushing ISU tonight.
Big contributions for UNI:
Erik Crawford - 28 pts, 5-7 3-pt
Ben Jacobson - 27 pts, 5-9 3-pt
Eric Coleman - 24 pts, 10 reb
Brooks McKowen - 11 ast
I didn't get to see this one, so send me your impressions of UNI and ISU. Look for reactions from Hilton Magic and CrossCyed in the near future.
