This season's first meeting
between the Shockers and Salukis was a see-saw showdown in which SIU held Wichita State to 32% shooting, their worst floor performance of the year. Tonight, when two of the four 9-3 MVC teams collide, 6-10 Shox center Paul Miller
and co. will attempt to avenge that loss in front of the loudest home crowd in the Valley (arguably, of course).SIU was shocked
in a different way earlier this week, when Indiana State came in and clipped their all-time MVC record conference home streak, which had reached 42 games and stretched beck to 2001. It'll be interesting to see how they come out on the road in their first game since that loss, but they have the second-most efficient defense in the country (.84 points per opp. possession) on their side.
