Dunham's career-high 14 points lead Northern Iowa to rebound victory
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Ali Farokhmanesh has been around long enough to understand the ups and downs of the Missouri Valley, a conference that for years has been one of the best of the so-called mid-majors.That's why the Northern Iowa guard wasn't surprised when the Panthers (No. 22 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) came out flat against Wichita State earlier in the week, and why it rebounded so well against Indiana State."We probably didn't handle Wichita State all that well," Farokhmanesh said after their 67-58 victory over the Sycamores on Sunday. "They played our game against us, and we need to be able to play our game well enough.
• Northern Iowa bounced back from its loss to Wichita State on Tuesday, winning for the 15th time in its last 16 games.
• The Panthers have won four straight vs. Indiana State, including two wins in the last nine days.
• Kerwin Dunham led Northern Iowa with a career-high 14 points on 4-for-5 shooting.
• Indiana State has lost seven straight vs. ranked opponents.
