CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Saluki basketball will air later this month on Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s WSIU Public Broadcasting.

The Saluki men’s basketball team travels to Terre Haute, Ind., Wednesday, Jan. 21, to face Indiana State in a Missouri Valley Conference battle. WSIU-TV will air the exclusive live broadcast in high definition, starting at 6 p.m. Scott Warman and Darren Kinnard will provide color and play-by-play during the broadcast.
