UNI Makes History With Upset Win [Gallery] [Video]
McLeod Madness reached an all-time high with the UNI Panthers' stunning upset of top-ranked North Carolina in Cedar Falls on Saturday (Nov. 21, 2015).
The photos above capture some of the sights inside the McLeod Center.
According to Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) officials, UNI's 71-67 victory against the Tar Heels at the McLeod Center marked the first time in the league's 109-year history that a non-conference No. 1 team lost to an MVC team on its home court.
The last top-rated team to play at a Missouri Valley Conference venue was Arkansas, which beat Tulsa in overtime on Dec. 23, 1993.
Saturday's win by the Panthers gives UNI a 2-0 mark against top-ranked teams.
It was the MVC's eighth all-time win against a No. 1 -- all of them since the 1949-50 season, when the Associated Press poll began. The other seven wins were all on neutral courts, including UNI's memorable 69-67 victory over Kansas in the second-round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City (To watch highlights, click the video below).
