CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Anthony James scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Jake Koch added 11 points and Northern Iowa held Missouri State to 27 percent shooting en route to a 48-37 victory Tuesday night.

The Panthers (13-11, 6-6 Missouri Valley) shot just 40 percent as a team, but that was enough to beat the cold-shooting Bears (7-17, 5-7). UNI's Marc Sonnen, whose 48.3 percent 3-point shooting percentage ranked third in Division I entering the game, was just 1 of 6 from long range.

Anthony Downing led the Bears with nine points and seven rebounds. The 37 points were Missouri State's lowest ever in an MVC game.

Missouri State led 29-26 after Christian Kirk's jumper with 11:29 to play, but Northern Iowa came alive after that, outscoring the Bears 22-8 the rest of the way. Sonnen's 3-pointer with 2:35 left made it 43-33 and effectively sealed the win.
