CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Jalen Pendleton hit a short jumper with 2 seconds left, helping Southern Illinois snap a six-game losing streak with a 64-62 victory Tuesday night over reeling Wichita State. Pendleton scored the final six points for the Salukis (9-13, 2-10 Missouri Valley). His free throws with 1:45 left tied the game at 60, and after Wichita State's Carl Hall tipped in a Cleanthony Early miss with 1:07 left, Pendleton tied it again on a layup with 48 seconds to play before hitting the game-winner. T.J. Lindsay led the Salukis with 14 points off the bench. Jeff Early and Desmar Jackson added 11 apiece. Demetric Williams scored 15 points for the Shockers (19-5, 8-4), who kept skidding after last week's two losses knocked them out of the AP Top 25. Southern Illinois trailed by as many as 17 points in the first half before rallying to lead by nine after halftime.
