Anthony James buried a 3 at the buzzer as Northern Iowa upset No. 13 Creighton 65-62 on Saturday, snapping the Bluejays' 11-game winning streak.
James scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and Seth Tuttle added 13 points for the Panthers, who handed visiting Creighton its first loss since late December.
James buried a huge 3 from the corner with 23 seconds left to put Northern Iowa (16-9, 6-7 MVC) ahead 61-56. Creighton's Antoine Young hit a 3 with 4.6 seconds left to tie it at 62-all. But James dribbled the length of the court and pulled up for the game-winner at the buzzer, sending Panthers streaming onto their home court.
Young scored 23 points and Doug McDermott, who originally committed to Northern Iowa, had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Creighton (21-3, 11-2).
