BYU Basketball has another opportunity to survive and advance in the postseason on Saturday night when the Northern Iowa Panthers visit Provo.

BYU, a 2-seed in the NIT, came back after a bad first half Wednesday night to beat Long Beach State by a score of 93-72. That game was also in Provo. That victory brought the Cougars to 23-10 on the season.

Northern Iowa made it to the second round of the NIT by taking down 3-seed Saint Louis on Wednesday, 80-68. UNI is 20-11. The Panthers hail from the Missouri Valley Conference, where they were 14-4 — the regular season champs. However, they lost to Loyola Chicago in the conference tournament semifinals.

UNI and BYU have only played once, back in 2015 in Hawaii. BYU won, 84-76. The Panthers are 9-4 on the road this season, while BYU is 13-2 at home. The winner of this second round matchup will advance to the quarterfinals.

Here’s the full NIT bracket.
