SIU loses heart breaker in overtime to Evansville Purple Aces

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Everything was looking up for the SIU Salukis and then suddenly it wasn't. 

With 1.5 seconds left in regulation, D.J. Balentine hit a three-pointer that sent the game into overtime, and that momentum carried the Purple Aces to an overtime win, 85 to 78, over the Salukis Thursday night. 

Balentine had 25 points and helped carry his team to victory. 

Anthony Beane scored 30 points for the fourth time this season, but it was not enough to stop Evansville rally.
