Salukis End Six Game Skid

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Jalen

Pendleton hit a short jumper with 2 seconds left, helping Southern Illinois

snap a six-game losing streak with a 64-62 victory last night over reeling

Wichita State.

Pendleton scored the final six points for

the Salukis (9-13, 2-10 Missouri Valley). His free throws with 1:45 left tied

the game at 60, and after Wichita State's Carl Hall tipped in a Cleanthony

Early miss with 1:07 left, Pendleton tied it again on a layup with 48 seconds

to play before hitting the game-winner.

T.J. Lindsay led the Salukis with 14

points off the bench. Jeff Early and Desmar Jackson added 11 apiece.

Demetric Williams scored 15 points for the

Shockers (19-5, 8-4), who kept skidding after last week's two losses knocked

them out of the AP Top 25.

Southern Illinois trailed by as many as 17

points in the first half before rallying to lead by nine after halftime.
