SIU's got work to do as it trails Duke 29-23 at half

Live from New York, it's halftime at Madison Square Garden as the SIU men's basketball team trails Duke at halftime, 29-23.

Both teams have struggled to shoot from the field, but as usual, the Dukies have been able to connect from the line to the tune of 15-for-19 from the charity stripe. The Salukis have only gone to the line eight times and have only hit four shots.

For SIU to pull off the upset it needs to:
  • Get to the free throw line. 4-of-8 isn't gonna cut it.
  • Hit its open shots. The Salukis have missed more bunnies than Elmer Fudd.
  • Make it rain 3s. The Salukis actually made it rain against UMass. Doing again would be nice.
