CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Per Clay Cunningham of The Courier, Panthers’ star and 2016-17 MVC Preseason Player of the Year Jeremy Morgan is expected to start today versus in-state rival Drake. The 6’5″ guard missed the last game with a sprained right ankle and was seen in a walking boot.
In a game they led from start to finish, Missouri State fended off Northern Iowa, 68-63. Star senior Dequon Miller scored a team-high 17 points in the win while sophomore Ryan Kreklow iced the contest with four free throws.
“It’s huge,” said Kreklow about the win to Jim Connell of Springfield News-Leader. “1-0 in ‘The Valley’ so far — We’ve got a long way to go, but I think it shows that we’re growing a lot as a team.”
