CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) Seth Tuttle scored seven of his 11 points in the final 4:28 to help Northern Iowa hold off Iona 90-78 Saturday night.

Tuttle also grabbed 15 rebounds. UNI's Deon Mitchell scored 20 points, Nate Buss 19 and Chip Rank 14.

A 19-2 Panthers run resulted in a 68-53 lead with 11:27 remaining. Iona (5-6) responded with an 11-3 run with eight points from Sean Armand before Armand was called for a personal and technical and fouled out at 8:12. Five straight free throws rebuilt UNI's lead to 12. The Gaels got within six with 4:40 left but no closer thanks in large part to Tuttle.
