The SIU baseball team is the third seed at this week's Missouri Valley Conference tournament hosted by Indiana State.

Southern has an early wake-up with an 8 a.m. first pitch set for Wednesday against fourth seeded Evansville.

The Salukis haven't captured the title since 1990.

Ahead of the tournament, the league announced the all-conference teams.

Four Salukis made the second team, including second baseman Steven Loden, catcher Cole Christman, outfielder Pier-Olivier Boucher and starting pitcher Jake Combs.

First baseman Matt Schark and reliever Paul Bonzagni made the honorable mention list.
