Northern Iowa Panthers Look To Add Another Conference Victory

Anthony James-Northern Iowa Panthers

Anali Okoloji- US Presswire

Can the Northern Iowa Panthers keep the momentum from their Saturday night victory against Wichita State going?

On Tuesday, they face a struggling Missouri State Bears squad that has been hard to understand this year.  From playing teams close to losing games they should have won, they have been the definition of a roller coaster team this year. Hopefully following the Panthers’ great win on Saturday, they can keep moving forward and pick up another conference win.

The Panthers are led by senior guard Anthony James in scoring at just over 12 points a game. If he plays well, then most likely the entire team will play well, that’s just the impact that James has. I look for him to having another solid game and playing more of the point guard spot gives this team a better chance at winning.

The Bears are led also by a senior in Anthony Downing who goes for just over 14 points a game. After Downing, it looks like the Bears are a pretty balanced scoring team, as no other player averages over eight points a game.

The Bears are struggling this season, but who knows which Panther team will show up on Tuesday. It comes down to whether or not Northern Iowa can hit the open threes and play the same defense that they played against the Shockers on Saturday.

Either way, it looks to be another opportunity for the Panthers to come away with a key conference victory.
