CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Nate Buss was one of four players in double figures for Northern Iowa, scoring 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting to lead UNI over Milwaukee 72-61 on Saturday night.
Seth Tuttle scored 11 points and pulled five rebounds, Anthony James and Matt Bohannon each added 10 points and UNI (4-3) shot an even 50 percent from the field. UNI held Milwaukee to just 40.7 percent from the field, but had trouble with Paris Gulley who scored 24 points.
Down 43-41 with 12:46 to play, Buss drove down the lane for a dunk and tied things up at 43, sparking an 18-5 run for UNI capped off by Marc Sonnen's 3-pointer, giving his team a 61-48 lead with 6:22 to play.
