Who’s Playing

Southern Illinois @ San Francisco

Current Records: Southern Illinois 7-4; San Francisco 11-1

What to Know

After a two-game homestand, the Southern Illinois Salukis will be on the road. They will take on the San Francisco Dons in a holiday battle at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday at War Memorial Gymnasium. These two teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

SIU made easy work of the Maryville (MO) Saints this past Saturday and carried off a 75-55 victory.

Meanwhile, San Francisco escaped with a win on Sunday against the Arizona State Sun Devils by the margin of a single free throw, 66-65. Having forecasted a close win for the Dons, the oddsmakers were right on the money. San Francisco’s forward Zane Meeks was one of the most active players for the squad, shooting 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finishing with 15 points and five boards.

The wins brought SIU up to 7-4 and San Francisco to 11-1. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: SIU is stumbling into the game with the 29th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.2 on average. The Dons have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 32nd worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 15.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
