MVC: SIU-Drake Preview

By Jerry Palm - March 02, 2007

In spite of the fact that it is apparently against the law for the top seed to win this tournament, Southern Illinois has shown up anyway. The last time the top seed won was in 1998. So, it's not a matter of if, but when the Salukis go down this weekend.

This won't be that day. Last night, Drake won the right to get up very early this morning and take on Southern Illinois. The Bulldogs hit a season high 15 three-pointers last night in a 101-96 OT win over Evansville. This will be a very different game. Drake will be lucky to get 15 shots from anywhere to fall this afternoon. The Salukis are one of the top defensive teams in the nation. They have only give up 65 points five times all year. Drake will be closer to 45 and Southern should cruise.
