    CARBONDALE, Ill. - Make it four in a row for the Southern Illinois men's tennis team as they swept Southern Indiana 6-0 at the Sports Blast Thursday.

    The Salukis didn't even lose a set as they easily knocked off the Screaming Eagles. SIU moves to 5-4 on the season.

    "We have won four matches in a row," said tennis coach Dann Nelson. "Our confidence level is high going into the Indiana State match. It should be a really great match."
