CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Seth Tuttle scored 19 points with seven assists and seven rebounds as Northern Iowa crushed Southern Illinois 73-54 on Wednesday night.

Matt Bohannon added 17 points for the Panthers (15-14, 9-8 Missouri Valley Conference). Jeremy Morgan scored 15 and Marvin Singleton had eight.

The Panthers hit 49 percent from the field, 78.6 percent from the line and outrebounded the Salukis 35-24.

Northern Iowa jumped to an early lead and led 32-25 at halftime. They went 14-8 to start the second half and Bohannon sank five 3-pointers in the period — including the final bucket of the game — to help the Panthers build an insurmountable lead.
