Northern Iowa beats Evansville 95-81
NORTHERN IOWA 95, EVANSVILLE 81
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) -- Deon Mitchell scored 20 points with six
assists and grabbed six rebounds as Northern Iowa posted a 95-81
victory over Evansville Wednesday night.
Seth Tuttle also had 20 points for the Panthers (11-10, 5-4
Missouri Valley Conference). Matt Bohannon scored 19 and Wes
Washpun had 11.
D.J. Balentine nearly doubled his season average with a
career-high 43 points for the Aces (10-12, 3-6), outperforming
the rest of the Evansville team combined. He was 10 of 19 from
the field, 19 of 21 from the line, and sank four from beyond the
arc during the contest.
But Balentine's stellar performance could not compensate for a
lackluster showing from the remainder of the Evansville team.
The Panthers had a 54-43 lead at the break and never looked
back, extending their advantage in the second period to 22
points, 90-68, on a Mitchell 3-pointer with 7:05 remaining.
