The Illinois State men’s basketball team’s 62-55 win Monday night over Texas A&M in the quarterfinal round of the College Basketball Invitational marks just the third time in program history that the Redbirds have won two postseason contests in the same season, with the last time coming during the 1995-96 season. ISU was led by¬†Daishon Knight, who connected on 50 percent of his shot attempts from the field, scoring 17 points. Knight also pulled down a career-high nine rebounds, all coming at the defensive end in 36 minutes. John Jones was the only other Redbird to score in double figures, as he tied a career-high 12 points, scoring nine-straight in the first half. The Aggies were led in scoring by sophomore forward Antwan Space. With the win, the Redbirds continue CBI play Siena College in Loudonville, NY Wednesday evening at 6:05 p.m. CT in the tournament semifinals.
