TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State used a fourth-quarter rally to win its second Missouri Valley Conference game of the season with a 65-63 over Northern Iowa Thursday in women’s basketball action.

UNI turned the ball over 21 times and a shot at the buzzer was offline as the Panthers dropped to 14-9 overall and 6-6 in the Valley.

UNI led 17-8 after one quarter, 29-26 at halftime and 48-42 after three as the Panthers led by as much 12 with 6:16 left in the third.

Indiana State got 24 points and nine boards from Jamyra McChristine and the Sycamores (4-20, 2-10) forced two Panther turnovers in the final 22 seconds to help secure the win.

UNI had four players reach double figures led by Megan Maahs with 15 points and eight rebounds.
