On Wednesday, Nov. 1, the UNI men’s basketball team hosted Coe College for an exhibition match in the McLeod Center. With regular season play right around the corner, this was a good way for the Panthers to get locked in for the season ahead. In a good showing at home, the Panthers were able to get the win over the Kohawks.

The Panthers came out of the gates quickly, as they jumped out to a 14-3 lead in just the first five minutes of play. Jacob Hutson, a new addition to the Panthers this season, had six points over the opening run. UNI kept things going, and a Bowen Born 3-pointer right around the midway point of the first half, made it 27-12. By the end of the first half, the Panthers were dominating with a 63-27 lead. At the half, Hutson was the leading scorer for the Panthers, with 14 points, and Landon Wolf was not far behind, with 13.

Tytan Anderson came out in the second half on fire, scoring the first seven points for the Panthers. The Panthers continued to dominate in the second half just as they had in the first. Nearing the end of the game, UNI’s Kyle Pock caught fire from deep, as he hit three straight 3-pointers that put a cap on UNI’s solid performance in the exhibition. When the final buzzer sounded, the Panthers won 103-65. 

The Panthers had five different players score in double figures on the night. Anderson led the way with 17 points, Born, Hutson, and Trey Campbell had 14 apiece, and Wolf had 13. Along with his 17 points, Anderson also had 10 rebounds to get the double-double. For the Kohawks, TJ Schnurr led all scorers with 18 points. The regular season will get started for the Panthers on Tuesday, Nov. 7, when they travel to Denton, Texas to play North Texas.
