CEDAR FALLS - The UNI Panthers have just 4 wins in their first 9 games, but Ben Jacobson's crew looks like they could be a contender in the Valley come February and March.
Saturday UNI picked up a big win against Virginia Commonwealth 77-68. Nate Buss scored 16 points off the bench to lead the way. Freshman Jeremy Morgan chipped in 13.
UNI is now 5-5, on the road next Saturday at Virginia.
