Bowen Born leads the Panthers in scoring and assists with 18 PPG and 2 APG while Nate Heise has 12 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for the Panthers up to this point in the year. Tytan Anderson also has 9.5 PPG with a team-high 11 RPG to lead the Panthers on the glass. As a team, Northern Iowa is averaging 76.3 points per game on 48.1% shooting from the field, 33.8% from three point range and 59.6% from the foul line this season.
The Grand Canyon Lopes will hope to bounce back after a 55-43 defeat at the hands of Wichita State in their last game.

I get the case to be made for either side here, but I’m going to back the under. I just don’t trust Grand Canyon to be able to do enough to help push us over the number at the snail’s pace they play at and I also don’t expect Northern Iowa to have a ton of success against Grand Canyon’s defense either. Seems like a first to 60 wins kind of game. Give me the under.
