CARBONDALE, Ill. — It was the kind of night at SIU Arena where the loudest cheers might have been directed at a couple of fans who made baskets during timeout shooting contests.
The turnout of 5,764 had little else to get that excited about during Creighton's 81-51 dismantling of the home team. Southern Illinois fought hard but this one went the way anyone would expect a game might go between the 17th-ranked Bluejays and an undersized Salukis team that was without one of its best players.
