January 25th, 2023 by Ric Hanson

Winners of five of their last six games the UNI Panthers host Valparaiso Wednesday night in Missouri Valley Conference action. The Panthers are third in the Valley race with a 7-3 mark. After starting 0-7 Valpo has won three straight.

That’s Panther coach Ben Jacobson. UNI won the first meeting 69-67 on the road but Jacobson says the Beacons are a much different team right now.

Jacobson says the Panthers will need to eliminate some mistakes on the defensive end against a much more confident team.
