CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Kristina Cavey's free throw with less than one second on the clock lifted the UNI Panthers to a 51-50 win over visiting IUPUI on Sunday. The win moved the Panthers to a perfect 4-0 at home this season.

Cavey was fouled on a rebound attempt in the last second and hit one of two attempts from the line.

Cavey and Megan Maahs led the Panthers with 10 points each in the win.

UNI's offense went cold down the stretch. Nicole Kroeger hit a three-pointer for a 47-41 lead with 8:40 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Panthers didn't hit another shot for the next seven minutes as IUPUI took a 50-47 lead following a 9-0 run.

Karli Rucker's three-pointer with 40 seconds remaining tied the game at 50 setting up Cavey's final bucket.
