Drake rallies to beat N. Iowa 47-46
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP)—Josh Young scored 16 points and led a second-half rally that carried Drake to a 47-46 win over Northern Iowa on Wednesday in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Young had nine points in the second half for the Bulldogs (16-12, 7-9), who won for the third straight time at UNI. Young’s free throws with 6:51 to play gave Drake a 39-38 lead. The Bulldogs never trailed again.
Drake was 8-for-8 from the line in the second half and 9-for-10 overall. The Panthers (18-9, 12-4) were 6-for-6 in the first half, but made just six of 13 attempts in the second half.
Jordan Eglseder, who was UNI’s only double-figure scorer with 11 points, missed two free throws with 5 seconds left for the Panthers.
Turnovers and poor shooting hurt both teams. UNI had 21 turnovers and shot 35 percent, while Drake had 16 turnovers and shot 39 percent.
