StatSmack! Southern Illinois is better than Illinois State
  • More property crime happens in Normal so you better protect your valuables if you visit (when compared to Carbondale -- according to the FBI).
  • Southern Illinois takes less vacation, with more NCAA Tournament appearances over the last 10 years than Illinois State (5 vs 0).
  • We're so much better than you, we get lazy. Southern Illinois has come back to win after being down at half against Illinois State 3 times since 2002.
  • Southern Illinois allows fewer rebounds (30.0 allowed per game vs 34.5 allowed per game) than Illinois State this season.
