SIU has now shot 50 percent from the field in two games this season -- the first time the Salukis have done that in any of the previous five years.
For just $25, fans can receive four general admission tickets to all three SIU women's basketball games over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Southern has not started a season with two consecutive road wins since 1991-92.
This is the first season opener victory for SIU since 2008 (Saint Louis), and the first opening victory on the road since 2000 (Illinois-Chicago).
Southern is looking for its first road season opener victory since 2000 (at Illinois-Chicago, 57-40).
