Southern Illinois-Edwardsville Cougars

The Southern Illinois-Edwardsville Cougars are third to the last in the Ohio Valley Conference standings with a 6-19 record. They just recently snapped a four-game losing streak as they defeated the Eastern Kentucky Colonels by 8 points. Over the past ten games, the Cougars have been struggling as they just won two matches. This team has three players doing double-digit scoring for them and they are led by Moore with 12.8 points while Williams and Willford do 10 points a game. This is going to be a tough game for them and talent-wise, this team does not have much to compete and would need to play perfect basketball to get close.

The Panthers also snapped their three-game losing streak with a win over Morehead St. Eagles by six points. Prior to the slump, this team was rolling as they were in a four-game winning streak. Currently, the Panther sits in the middle of the Ohio Valley Conference with an even 12-12 win-loss record.

Players to watch: J. Wallace G 24 (GP 30.8 MIN 14.1 PTS 4.5 REB 2.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.5 BLK 2.1 TO 45.3 FG% 76 FT% 33.3 3PT%), M.
