CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - Marc Sonnen scored 15 points to lead Northern Iowa's men's basketball team to a 58-45 win over SIU earlier tonight at the McLeod Center.

The Panthers (11-9, 4-4 Missouri Valley Conference) made 8-of-15 from the 3-point line to move to 9-2 at home this season. 

Dantiel Daniels' 11 points led SIU (8-11, 1-7 MVC), which scored a season-low 45 points. The Salukis' previous low was 51 in a loss to Saint Louis.

SIU returns to the court Sunday to take on Creighton.
