Northern Iowa 84, Toledo 81 (OT)

Not a football score! Okay, for Toledo it's a football score.

I'm impressed they were able to get this to overtime and stay in this game until the end. A couple foulouts by Nathan Boothe and Matt Smith in overtime hurt the effort, however, and took away the size advantage.

Dominique Buckley was accurate from three, going 5-for-7 out there, finishing with 19 points. Juice Brown took 20 shots to get to 23 points, and Rian Pearson kept them in it with 18 points of his own.

But Toledo kept getting into foul trouble, committing 27 of them, and UNI turned them into 32 points at an 82 percent clip.

The winless Rockets can finally come home on this weird Illinois-Minnesota-Iowa trip and will host Samford next Wednesday night.
