Northern Iowa's lead looks safe
Five different Panthers have scored in double figures today as UNI's lead is up to 14 with under 4 minutes left. Seth Tuttle, who has the second-best Player Efficiency Rating (PER) in the nation, has 12 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists.

Northern Iowa or Wyoming: Who ya got?
ESPN's Andy Katz: "I'm leaning toward Northern Iowa. I loved the way the Panthers played defense at times this season. [Seth] Tuttle and [Larry] Nance are both sensational players. But the Panthers have been more consistent this season."

Wyoming vs. Northern Iowa (1:40 p.m. ET)
Northern Iowa gave up just 54.4 points a game this season. Wyoming wasn't far behind, giving up 56. Maybe Seth Tuttle, who hit double figures in 29 of 33 games this year, can provide some offense for UNI, who has only advanced past the Round of 64 once.
