    EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Carlton Fay hit his last three 3-pointers and scored 15 points Saturday night to help Southern Illinois break a four-game losing streak with a 65-57 victory over Evansville.

    Tony Freeman added 13 points and Gene Teague came off the bench to hit 5 of 5 and score 12 points in 17 minutes for the Salukis (10-6, 3-4 Missouri Valley).

    The Purple Aces (6-11, 0-7) got 22 points from freshman Colt Ryan, though he made only 6 of 18. Evansville lost its eighth in a row.

    Southern Illinois shot only 40 percent (22 of 55), but Evansville could not take advantage, hitting just 41.3 percent (19 of 46).

    The Salukis led 33-25 at the break. Ryan's 3-pointer cut the gap to 45-42 with 8:58 left, but Evansville could get no closer.
