The Bird Level
A rivalry may officially be taken to a higher level today.The rivalry was no doubt elevated when Indiana State?s women?s basketball team was defeated 86-69 by Southern Illinois in a trip to Carbondale, Ill., last January.The defeat was ISU coach Jim Wiedie?s first to the Salukis and it helped propel Southern Illinois to 16 Missouri Valley Conference wins and the regular-season conference championship. ISU was one of just two MVC teams to split with the Salukis last season, winning 74-69 in Hulman Center.
