The UIC Flames square off with the Indiana-Purdue Jaguars in Horizon college basketball on Saturday.

The UIC Flames have won three of four after upsetting Northern Kentucky as a 4.5 point underdog on Sunday afternoon.

Tarkus Ferguson was the Flames best player with 19 points, nine rebounds and eight helpers with Michael Diggins adding 16 points and four pulls.

UIC saw another 12 points, three yanks and five assists from Godwin Boahen followed by Rob Howard with nine points and four boards.

The Indiana-Purdue Jaguars look to get back in the win column after a three game winning streak was halted in a 79-74 loss to Wright State.

Indiana-Purdue was down five points at the half and could only trade baskets the rest of the way behind 40.9% shooting and 13 more shots.

Cameron Justice kept the Jaguars in the game with 22 points, four pulls and six helpers while Evan Hall added 14 points and four pulls.

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.
