Extra points: This will be the final time the Hawks play at the PAC as Southern Indiana plans to move into a new 4,700-seat venue next season. The Screaming Eagles own a 19-4 record against the Hawks at the PAC and hold a 31-10 advantage in the all-time series, including a 92-65 victory last season. Southern Indiana has won three of its last four games, including Thursday night's 80-65 victory against Truman State. The Screaming Eagles' two GLVC losses were by 12 points at home against Bellarmine and by 12 points on the road at Missouri-St. Louis. Senior guard Alex Stein, a preseason All-American candidate, is the league's second-leading scorer at 20.8 points and sits third in 3-point percentage at 48.9 percent. The Screaming Eagles are the second-leading 3-point shooting team in the GLVC, hitting 39.4 percent. Junior guard Kobe Caldwell is averaging 13.3 points and five rebounds per game. Sophomore forward Emmanuel Little, who had 25 points against the Hawks last season, is averaging 10.7 points and 7.3 rebounds off the bench this season. The Hawks will be without sophomore point guard Ryan Briscoe for the second straight game. Briscoe, who averages 32.5 minutes, 9.8 points and 3.5 assists per game, is battling a health issue and will be re-evaluated when the Hawks return home. His status for week's home games against Maryville and UMSL is uncertain. The Hawks play their next four games at home.
