Round two of the 2010 Chicago Invitational Challenge moved to the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, where the eight teams in the field will battle through the weekend for supremacy and bragging rights.
Highlighted by the nighttime match-up pitting Southern Illinois against Purdue, the round proved to be a post-holiday feast for the basketball fan.
The dynamic duo of E-Twaun Moore and JaJaun Johnson would combined for 49 points, taking what was a gritty first-half performance from the Salukis, and turning it into a 79-60 rout.
Look for more action today, as the CIC continues, with the slate as follows:
11:00 AM Charleston Southern vs Southern
1:30 PM Austin Peay vs Oakland
4:00 PM Wright St. vs Southern Illinois
6:30 PM Richmond vs Purdue
