SHARE Thunderbirds to host Chicago State

CEDAR CITY — Southern Utah hosts Chicago State tonight at 7:35 in the Centrum.

After playing six straight on the road, Southern Utah (5-11, 2-2 Mid-Continent Conference) enjoyed its return to the Centrum last weekend, winning a pair of games and snapping a six-game losing skid.

The Thunderbirds topped Valparaiso 78-62 in a rematch of last year's Mid-Con championship game Thursday, then came back on Saturday to hold off the league's most improved team, Western Illinois, 68-63.

Chicago State (2-14, 0-4 Mid-Con) is Southern Utah's travel partner in the league this year and as such played the same teams last week. CSU lost a narrow 82-77 decision at home to Western Illinois Thursday before falling to Valparaiso, 78-66, Saturday.
