CARBONDALE -- Chris Hines scored 12 points and Richard Carter hit a key 3-pointer in the final minute as Drake defeated Southern Illinois 61-56 Wednesday night.

The Salukis(8-13, 1-9 Missouri Valley) overcame a 10-point second-half deficit and tied the game at 54-54 when Josh Swan hit 1 of 2 free throws with 1:33 remaining. But Carter followed with a 3 with 1:05 left and Drake (10-11, 4-6) hit 4 of 6 free throws the rest of the way to close the game on a 7-2 run.
