Prairie Stars cruise past Missouri S&T

Running away from opponents hasn’t been the modus operandi for the University of Illinois Springfield men’s basketball team this season.

That all changed with the Prairie Stars’ 72-52 victory over Missouri S&T in a Great Lakes Valley Conference game Thursday night at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

The 8-9 Stars’ largest margin of victory before Thursday was 12 points.

UIS continues picking up wins. The Stars have won six of their last eight games. UIS sits in second place behind Missouri-St. Louis in the West Division of the GLVC standings with a 5-3 conference record.

The win was featured in an January 20, 2012, article in The State Journal-Register.
