CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - One of the Northern Iowa's hallmarks under basketball coach Ben Jacobson has been veteran leadership.
The Panthers won't have much of that to lean on this season.
Three starters and three of the program's top four scorers have moved on, leaving Jacobson with the least experienced group in his eight-year tenure in Cedar Falls.
The Panthers have 10 newcomers - including five true freshmen and Tennessee transfer Wes Washpun - that they'll need to find roles for before the season opener on Nov. 9 at Ohio.
