The five points were the fewest scored in a first half since Notre Dame limited California to five on Nov. 26, 2010. The fewest points scored in a half in the shot clock era is four by Savannah State vs. Kansas on Jan. 7, 2008.

Northern Illinois (1-5) went 16:02 without a point the opening half. The Huskies were 2-of-19 shooting and 1 for 6 from the foul line. During the scoring drought, the Flyers scored 19 points for a 24-2 lead before Travon Baker made a free-throw then hit a jumper to make it 26-5 with 2:29 remaining in the half.

Josh Benson and Devin Oliver scored 12 points each for the Flyers (5-2).

Baker led the Huskies with 17 points.

The Huskies outscored Dayton 38-34 in the second half.
