    CHARBONDALE, Ill. -- Anthony Beane scored 26 points as Southern Illinois picked up its fourth-straight conference win by clobbering Missouri State 72-54 Saturday night.

    Desmar Jackson had 11 points for the Salukis (10-15, 6-6 Missouri Valley Conference). Jalen Pendleton came off the bench to score eight points and Tyler Smithpeters added seven.

    The Salukis were 9 of 17 (53 percent) overall from beyond the arc and hit 58 percent from the free throw line.

    Southern Illinois had a 29-27 lead at halftime and extended its advantage in the second period with a 21-6 run with 3-pointers by Beane, Jackson and Smithpeters to go up 50-33 with 13:10 remaining. The Salukis held a double-digit lead to finish.

    Jarmar Gulley led the Bears (16-8, 6-6) with 15 points.

    The win puts Southern Illinois into a tie with Missouri State for fourth in the MVC. The Salukis face No. 4 Wichita State on Feb. 11.
