Recap: Missouri State vs. Northern Iowa

Springfield, MO (Sports Network) - Seth Tuttle registered the seventh double- double of his career with 19 points and 12 rebounds as the Northern Iowa Panthers posted a 69-63 win against the Missouri State Bears in Missouri Valley Conference action at JQH Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Panthers (17-11, 10-6 MVC) were Anthony James and Matt Bohannon with 17 and 11 points, respectively, the former adding eight assists as the team logged a sixth straight win.

The Bears (8-20, 6-10) were paced by Marcus Marshall who scored a game-high 25 points, hitting all nine of his free-throw attempts, followed by Christian Kirk with 12 points and six rebounds as Missouri State bowed for the fourth time in the last five outings.

The hosts opened the contest on a 15-5 run and appeared primed to run away with the decision, but UNI ended up converting 52.2 percent from the floor in the first half in order to post a 30-27 advantage at the break.

In the second half the Panthers dipped to just 40 percent accuracy from the floor and converted only 1-of-9 behind the 3-point line. However, the visitors made up for those shortcomings by connecting on all but two of 20 attempts at the free-throw line in order to secure the six-point win.

Northern Iowa shot 19-of-23 at the charity stripe on the night and turned the ball over just five times.
