We don't need Evansville creeping any closer. Go Panthers.

The stands are just barren at UNI - are their fans that fair-weather and just bail when their team is having a bad year?

Those empty areas on the sides are the seats normally occupied by UNI season ticket holders. So their announced attendance probably won't reflect how few fans are actually there.

So far, the game is low-scoring and staying close in the first half-

The low-scoring continued as neither team managed to score more than 18 points in the 2nd half.
Northern Iowa pulled out to a 15 point lead midway through the 2nd half but then failed to score a field goal in the last 10 minutes of the game.
Evansville then slowly chipped away at the lead and closed to within 2 points (43-41) with under 2 minutes. But then Evansville went cold, and UNI made several free throws in the final couple minutes to hold on for the 47-41 win-

Evansville's Ryan Taylor had 26 points, but the other 4 starters combined only totalled 6 points, and they only got 9 points from their bench.
UNI only shot 27.8% for the game, and Hunter Rhodes was their leading scorer with 12 points. They were just 5-22 from three.
UNI got 31 of their 47 points from their 3 senior starters, and they only got 16 points on 4-25 shooting from everyone else. UNI could be in trouble again next year when Koch, Carlson, and Rhodes are gone. They really are hurting for shooters and playmakers and don't have much offense returning next year.

This might have been the worst college game I've seen this year, or maybe for a few years.
