Southern Illinois completes season sweep of UNI

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Aaron Cook had 17 points and Sean Lloyd Jr. and Darius Beane each added 16 more as Southern Illinois beat Northern Iowa for the second time in 18 days, 70-62 in a Missouri Valley Conference contest on Wednesday night.

The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for the Salukis, who had not won since its 58-51 win at Cedar Falls.

A.J. Green hit a 3-pointer with 3:43 left to get Northern Iowa within three, 53-50, but the Salukis pushed the advantage to 13 points before Green hit two 3-pointers in the final minute to get the final deficit to single digits.

Southern Illinois (10-10, 3-4) shot 50 percent from the field (26-of-52), including 7-of-20 from long range.

Green hit 6-of-7 from distance and finished with 22 points for Northern Iowa (8-12, 3-4).
