Southern Illinois generally plays things slow and deliberate which is their best chance of success but Drake nursed an early lead and made their free throws while SIU was 8-14 at the line.

Armon Fletcher kept the Salukis competitive with 21 points, eight rebounds and four assists with Kavion Pippen adding 19 points and six boards.

Eric McGill gave Southern Illinois eight points, five pulls and four helpers followed by Aaron Cook and Sean Lloyd with eight points apiece.

The Indiana State Sycamores come off of an 87-82 overtime win at Valparaiso on Wednesday night as a 4.5 point underdog.

Indiana State is near the bottom of the Missouri Valley standings and much of their struggles have been inconsistent play at both ends of the floor.

Indiana State saw 12 points and three yanks from Bronson Kessinger followed by Jordan Barnes with another eleven points.
