Wichita State (15-14, 8-9) at Southern Illinois (12-17, 7-10)

Line: Southern Illinois -3

Wichita State defeated Indiana State 76-70 on Tuesday for their 4th win in their last 5 games. J.T. Durley led the way for the Shockers with 16 points and 6 boards. It was way back on January 7th when Wichita State last played Southern Illinois, losing 62-74. Tied for 5thplace with Evansville in the Missouri Valley Conference, the Shockers have come far from their 0-5 start to the conference schedule.

Southern Illinois defeated Drake 56-55 on Wednesday to bring the Salukis tied with the Bulldogs for 7th place in the conference. While this is not the successful season Southern Illinois has been used to recently, they do have three other teams within a game above them in the standings.
