Eric Coleman scored 15 points and had eight
rebounds to lead Northern Iowa past Wichita State 65-58 last night.
Coleman was all smiles after finishing off a 4-0 career record
in games at Wichita State. Adam Viet, who had not made more than
two 3-pointers in a game this season, was 5-of-8 from behind the
arc to also finish with 15 points for the Panthers.
Adam Koch and Jordan Eglseder each added 12 points for Northern
J.T. Durley scored a season-high 18 points for Wichita State, which lost its fifth straight.
Mantas Griskenas, a 6-foot-7 junior forward from Rokiskis, Lithuania, tore the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and the Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.
Griskenas sustained the tears at the six-minute mark of the first half and will have an MRI to determine the full extent of the injury, according to Shocker Coach Gregg Marshall.
