Salukis Lose to Ranked Wichita State

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Cleanthony

Early scored 39 points to help No. 23 Wichita State beat Southern Illinois

82-76 last night, two days after the Shockers jumped back into the poll.

Early's 39 points were the most for a

Wichita State player since Xavier McDaniel had 44 in 1985.

Wichita State (15-1, 4-0 Missouri Valley)

needed everything Early could do as Southern Illinois rode a hot-shooting first

half to keep it close into the final minute.

Desmar Jackson scored 28 points and

Anthony Beane added 14 for the Salukis (7-8, 0-4).

Ehime Orupke had 10 points and nine

rebounds for Wichita State, which has won 16 straight games at home.

The Salukis have lost nine straight

Missouri Valley games, dating back to last season, but had a nine-point lead

starting the second half.
