CEDAR FALLS — Nate Heise had a double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds as UNI beat Prairie View A&M 74-55 in the McLeod Center Tuesday night. The Panthers improve to 4-7 on the season.

The Panthers turned it over 16 times against Prairie View A&M’s pressure defense but shot an efficient 51 percent and led by as many as 21 points in the second half.

The Panthers host Alcorn State on Sunday.




IOWA CITY — The Iowa Hawkeye men are in a familiar spot as they get ready for Saturday’s game in Des Moines against Florida A&M. Sunday’s loss to Michigan was their third straight and they are 0-2 in the Big Ten. Last season the Hawkeyes opened conference play 0-3 before rebounding to finish 11-9 and making it to the NCAA Tournament.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. The Hawkeyes are connecting on less than 30 percent from three point range during their three game skid.

Senior guard Tony Perkins is confident the Hawkeyes will get things turned around.

As one of the veterans Perkins is trying to provide leadership.

The Hawkeyes are 5-5 overall.




AMES — Iowa State sophomore guard Tamin Lipsey is excelling in nearly every category during the Cyclones’ 8-2 start. The Ames native is second on the team in scoring and leads the team in rebounding, assists and steals. He had a school record eight steals in Sunday’s win over Prairie View A&M.

Many of his steals are leading to easy baskets.

Iowa State coach T.J. Otzelberger says it is one of several school records Lipsey will set during his career.

Otzelberger says Lipsey’s instincts help him impact the game in so many areas.

The Cyclones return to action Sunday at home against Florida A&M.




CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa women’s basketball coach Tanya Warren is using finals week to help her team regroup. Named the Missouri Valley Conference preseason favorite, the Panthers are just 1-7 on the season.

Injuries have been a factor. Junior standout and preseason Valley Player of the Year Grace Boffeli has missed the last three games.

Warren is confident the Panthers will get things turned around.

UNI returns to action on December 20th with a trip to Iowa State.
