Sean Lloyd was probably the most consistent player on the floor in a ragged game. His 13 points tied Armon Fletcher for the team lead, and he also led the team with nine rebounds. Only one of those boards came on the offensive end, but Lloyd converted that rebound into a bucket that helped spring SIU to a 10-point lead in the second half.

Armon Fletcher

Stat line: 13 points, 4-9 FG, 1-5 3PT, 4-6 FT, 5 RB, 1 assist, 3 turnovers, 1 block, 2 steals, 33 minutes.

Fletcher tied for the team lead in scoring and was steady throughout the night. The Salukis failed to make a 3-pointer in the first half, but Fletcher hit one early in the second half to put SIU back on top. Late in the game Fletcher got his lone assist with a fastball pass to Thik Bol that Bol converted into a slam dunk.
