STRONG NIGHT FOR SILAS

|

Despite battling flu-like symptoms for much of the week, Xavier Silas had another impressive performance last night for the Huskies, scoring 39 points to lead NIU to an 83-74 victory over Akron. Silas was 9-of-17 from the floor, including 5-of-9 from beyond the three-point line, and also grabbed eight rebounds as NIU improved to 7-11, 3-3 in the MAC.

With his performance, Silas was named FoxSports.com's Mid-Major Stud of the Night.

The Huskies return to action on Saturday when they travel to Buffalo. Game time is set for 11 a.m. CT.
