    CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- 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.

    Northern Iowa has won four of its last five games and is now tied with Missouri State and Illinois State for third in the MVC.

    Anthony Beane led the Salukis (12-18, 8-9) with 17 points. Sean O'Brien added 11.
