SIU shot a mere 38.9 percent from the floor in the first half, including 3- of-11 from behind the 3-point line, and still the team held a 31-29 advantage at the break.

The second half belonged to the Aggies as they connected on not just 52.0 percent from the field but also an impressive 19-of-20 at the free-throw line to seal the eight-point win.

In a game that featured five ties and 13 lead changes, the Aggies overcame 16 turnovers by producing a 44-30 edge in rebounding.
