Indiana State slips past UNI

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Jordan Barnes hit five 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 27 points and Brandon Murphy tipped in Barnes’ missed 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Indiana State beat Northern Iowa 69-67 on Wednesday night.

Murphy finished with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting and Brenton Scott scored 13 points for Indiana State (8-9, 3-2 Missouri Valley). Scott, who has 1,561 career points, moved past Eddie Bird into seventh on school’s all-time list.

Pickford led UNI with 18 points, Brown scored 13 and Lohaus 12.

The Panthers led by as many as 11 points in the first half and Brown’s layup to open the second have gave them a 40-31 lead. Barnes hit three 3-pointers during a 13-4 run over the next four minutes that made it 44-all.
