Carbondale, IL (Sports Network) - Jalen Pendleton drilled the game-winning 3- pointer with two seconds remaining to lift the Southern Illinois Salukis to a thrilling 64-62 upset victory over the Wichita State Shockers in Missouri Valley Conference action at SIU Arena.

Demetric Williams tallied 15 points and seven assists for Wichita State (19-5, 8-4), which has lost three straight games after starting the season 19-2. Tekele Cotton added 10 points for the Shockers.

The Salukis continued to lead for much of the second half until a Carl Hall bucket capped off a 14-3 run for the Shockers, as they took a 62-60 lead with just over a minute remaining. Pendleton answered with the game-tying basket on the ensuing possession, then following a Wichita State turnover, he hit the dramatic game-winner in the waning seconds.
