SIU's Early Suspended for Creighton Game


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- SIU will not have its top rebounder and second-leading scorer against No. 17 Creighton Sunday night.

Saluki senior Jeff Early was suspended by the Missouri Valley Conference for one game Thursday after committing a flagrant 2 foul at Northern Iowa. Early was ejected from that game after intentionally kneeing Jake Koch below the belt.

Early is averaging 12.7 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for the Salukis this season.
