Salukis rally past Redbirds

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- The SIU Salukis used a 20-2 run late in the second half to overcome a 14-point deficit and beat Illinois State 74-70.

The Redbirds took a 61-47 lead with 7:50 to play on Milik Yarbrough's dunk.

Armon Fletcher and Sean Lloyd keyed the SIU turnaround, combining for 15 of the 20-point run.  Fletcher's steal and dunk gave SIU a 64-63 lead, and the junior from Edwardsville followed that up with a three in transition to cap the run and give the Salukis a 67-63 lead.

SIU made enough free throws down the stretch to hold on for the win and snap a two-game losing skid.

Fletcher led all scorers with 26.  Lloyd added 14 and Kavion Pippen 13 for SIU.  Phil Fayne hit 11 of 12 from the field and finished with 24 points and ten rebounds to lead the Redbirds.

SIU improves to 11-8 (3-3).  The Salukis will travel to Loyola Wednesday.

Illinois State falls to 9-9 (3-3).  The Redbirds will host Bradley Wednesday.
