SIU Softball Looks for Upset at MVC Tournament


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- The SIU softball team will be the underdog at the Missouri Valley Conference softball tournament this weekend.

The Salukis (24-26, 12-10) will face No. 8 Wichita State in the opening round Thursday at 11:05 a.m. Despite making the conference tournament finals last season, and being picked as a preseason favorite, the Dawgs remain an underdog this weekend.

Despite finishing below .500 for the first time since 1984, the Salukis say they're primed to make a run in the postseason.
