How to watch BYU Basketball vs. Northern Iowa in the NIT

BYU Basketball has another opportunity to survive and advance in the playoffs Saturday night when the Northern Iowa Panthers visit Provo.

BYU, seeded 2 in the NIT, returned after a poor first half on Wednesday night for beat Long Beach State by a score of 93-72. This match was also in Provo. The win lifted the Cougars to 23-10 this season.

Northern Iowa advanced to the second round of the NIT by knocking out 3-seeded St. Louis on Wednesday 80-68. UNI is 20-11. The Panthers hail from the Missouri Valley Conference, where they were 14-4 – the regular season champions. However, they lost to Loyola Chicago in the conference tournament semifinals.

UNI and BYU have only played once, in 2015 in Hawaii. BYU won, 84-76. The Panthers are 9-4 on the road this season, while BYU is 13-2 at home. The winner of this second round match will qualify for the quarter-finals.
