The Southern Illinois Salukis take the floor at the Colorado State Rams in a non-conference college basketball tilt.

The Southern Illinois Salukis have won three of four after upending Tulsa 79-69 on Friday. Southern Illinois overcame a three point deficit at the half behind a 47-34 run over the final 20 minutes. The Salukis sank shots at 58.6% and limited the Golden Hurricane to 43.1% which negated seven more Tulsa shots.

The balance SIU offense featured a 14 point, six board and three assist effort from Eric McGill on 3-6 shooting and 6-9 at the stripe while Aaron Cook tossed in 13 points on 3-7 and 5-6 at the line. Sean Lloyd Jr. netted eleven points on 4-9 with Armon Fletcher, Marcus Bartley and Thik Bol giving Southern Illinois nine points apiece.

The Colorado State Rams lost their second game of the 2018-19 campaign 78-65 to South Dakota State on Wednesday. Colorado State fell behind by 16 points after 20 minutes and didn’t have the horses to come back with the Jackrabbits holding a 46.8%-36.4% shooting edge. Anthony Masinton-Bonner led the Rams offense with 20 points and four pulls on 7-12 from the field and 4-4 at the line. JD Paige gave Colorado State 17 points and four board on 7-13 accuracy while Kris Martin added eleven points and seven rebounds on 5-12 from the floor.

Southern Illinois Salukis are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Mountain West and over is 5-2 in Southern Illinois Salukis last 7 road games and over is 7-3 in Southern Illinois Salukis last 10 Tuesday games.  Colorado State Rams are 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 non-conference games and  are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games.

I think Southern Illinois can make a run at the MVC crown and that means winning these type of games…

Pick:
Southern Illinois -2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
