    SIU vs. Evansville Game Notes

    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The No. 19 Saluki softball team (15-3) opens Missouri Valley Conference play with a doubleheader at Evansville on Wednesday at 3 p.m.

    Southern enters the 3 p.m. match up after having gone 4-2 during the previous week at home, including a win in its last two games.

    Evansville (3-9) is coming off a 1-4 weekend at the South Florida Tournament, but won its final game against Lehigh 2-1.

    The Salukis, who lead the all-time series 49-17, took 2-out-of-3 from the Purple Aces last season and won their only game at Evansville 2-0.

    SIU dropped one spot in the USA Today/NFCA poll to No. 19 after losing twice over the weekend, but remain at No. 23 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball top 25 poll which was released today.

    Both games of Wednesday's doubleheader can be heard live online through Saluki All-Access, and live gametracker will also be available through the SIU softball webpage.

    Following the midweek games, Southern Illinois will return home for a Saturday doubleheader (12 and 2 p.m.) and single-game Sunday (12 p.m.) against Drake.
