OLEAN, N.Y. (AP) AJ Green scored 35 points with four assists to lead Northern Iowa to a 90-80 win over No. 16 St. Bonaventure on Saturday.
Austin Phyfe and Nate Heise each had 15 points as the Panthers (2-3) beat a ranked opponent for the first time since winning 79-76 at then-No. 23 Colorado on Dec. 10, 2019.
"This is huge," Green said. "We didn't have the start that we wanted, obviously. I'm just proud of how we were able to learn and build, regardless of starting 1-3."
