need to know

The Illinois State Redbirds have not won a game against the Northern Iowa Panthers since December 31, 2019, but they will want to end the drought on Saturday. The Redbirds and Northern Iowa will face off in the Missouri Valley battle at 3 PM ET at Redbird Arena. Illinois State want to keep their four-game home-winning streak alive.

Illinois State were close as they fell 55-51 to the Illinois-Chicago Flames on Wednesday but no cigars. One of the things that held Illinois State back was the mediocre play of guard Malachi Poindexter, who couldn’t play at his best: he finished with just 9 points on 12v4 shooting in 29 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, it looks like Northern Iowa must have landed on Santa’s naughty list as the team failed to secure the victory they were expected to take on Wednesday. Their 2022 ended in a 79-67 loss to the Missouri State Bears. Despite the loss, the Panthers put up strong performances from guard Bowen Born, who shot 8-to-5 from downtown and finished the game with 23 points, and guard Tytan Anderson, who finished with 15 points and six rebounds.

These two teams will definitely fight tooth and nail to get back to the winning column after this week’s losses. Let’s see which team will fill their stomach, which team will go hungry.
