Of all the teams to break Southern Illinois' 33-game home win streak and all-time Valley 42-game run, you'd never figure it would be Indiana State -- the streaky Sycamores went in to the game losers of 11 straight (remember, they went 8-0 to start the year). It was ISU's first win at SIU Arena since 1981, and the first time Saluki coach Chris owery had lost at home as a player, assistant or head coach since 1994.
Granted, Tyson Schnitker has shown the propensity for hitting big shots when it counts, and in this game he hit a lot of them -- nine, to be exact. Eighteen of those points came during a first half that sent the Trees out to a commanding 34-25 lead, and he came out of the break hot, hitting the first two baskets of the second half. And just look at that picture. He's so happy about it.
