NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Jackie Carmichael had 19 points and 11 rebounds Saturday as Illinois State beat Southern Illinois 60-40.

John Wilkins scored 10 points and matched Carmichael with 11 boards - tying Wilkins' career high - for the Redbirds (14-8, 6-5 Missouri Valley). Carmichael and Wilkins each blocked three SIU shots.

ISU led 26-17 at halftime and ran off 16 straight points during a 9-minute stretch in the second half to put it out of reach.

Jeff Early and Taylor Diamond had 10 points to lead the Salukis (7-15, 4-7), who shot 30 percent from the field.

The 40 points is a season low for SIU. The Salukis scored 42 at Wichita State a week ago.
