No. 8 Wichita State beats S Illinois 56-45

ST. LOUIS (AP) Southern Illinois' game plan was to prevent Wichita State's stars and inside players from taking over.

That left defensive stopper Tekele Cotton, and a full-court press, a combination that pulled the eighth-ranked Shockers out of an early rut.

"We did not want VanVleet or Baker or the bigs to beat us," Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson said after a 56-45 loss in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament Friday. "We said, `We're going to make Cotton beat us today, and quite frankly that's what it came down to."
