ST. LOUIS (AP) Wyatt Lohaus had 21 points as Northern Iowa narrowly beat Southern Illinois 61-58 in the Missouri Valley Conference Tourney quarterfinals on Friday night.
Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson announced he would be stepping down after the loss. Hinson coached the Salukis since the 2012-13 season and spent nine years at Missouri State before that. Hinson never made an NCAA Tournament appearance in his 17 years as a Division I coach. He and the chancellor agreed last March that he would step down if the Salukis didn't make the NIT or NCAA tourney this year.
Trae Berhow had 11 points for Northern Iowa (15-17). Luke McDonnell added seven rebounds.
Kavion Pippen had 22 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks for the Salukis (17-15). Armon Fletcher added 14 points and six rebounds.
