Illinois State (19-5, 8-5) at Evansville (15-8, 7-6)
Illinois State suffered a defeat to last place Indiana State 75-73 on Sunday. The loss leaves the Red Birds alone in third place of the Missouri Valley Conference. With just six games remaining, there isn’t much room for error if the Red Birds still hold out hope for a conference title.
Evansville should be looking to revenge a 30-point beating they received from Illinois State back on Dec. 31. Winners of three out of their last four games, the Aces sit fourth in the conference standings, but have a tough schedule to close out the regular season.
