College Basketball: UNI dropped by #16 Arkansas, 93-80

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A back-and-forth battle between UNI and No. 16 Arkansas ended in the Razorbacks’ favor, 93-80.

No. 16 Arkansas improved to 3-0, and UNI is now 1-3. This was UNI’s first contest of the season against a ranked opponent.

“We had ourselves in our position,” said head coach Ben Jacobson. “We were in a great spot with a minute and a half. I liked how aggressive we were. We had a few mistakes, but I am proud of how we played.”

UNI opened with a three-point shooting spree to give UNI the lead. UNI’s biggest lead was by six points in the first half. The lead changed 18 times with UNI holding it for more than 10 minutes of the game.

Arkansas didn’t take its largest lead of 13 points until the final seconds of the game. The Panthers were consistent in scoring each half with 38 points in the first and 42 in the second.

UNI is 18-44 against ranked opponents and 3-21 when those contests are on the road.

The Panthers went 17-35 from the three-point line (45.9%). Three Panthers were in double digits, with Trae Berhow leading the way with 23. Nate Heise was just shy of his career high points of 18, scoring 16 tonight. AJ Green matched Heise in scoring with 16 as well.

UNI scored 16 second-chance points and scored off eight turnovers.

UNI stays on the road until Dec. 5. They will face St. Bonaventure 1 p.m. CT Nov. 27. Fans can tune in on ESPN+ or listen on Panther Sports Radio Network News/Talk KXEL 1540.
