The win over the sixth-ranked Knights also marked the Eagles' third victory over a top-10 team in the last three weeks.

The High Point, North Carolina, native finished the week with another impressive performance at McKendree Saturday.  DeWitt dropped in a team-high 20 points while grabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out three assists. He shot 69.2 percent (9-of-13) from the field to lead USI to a 78-68 decision over the Bearcats.

For the week, DeWitt averaged 19.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.0 blocks, and 3.5 assists. He shot 71.4 percent (15-of-21) from the field and 66.6 percent from the line (8-of-12).  The back-to-back double-doubles were the third and fourth of the season for DeWitt.
 
USI (16-3, 9-2 GLVC) welcomes Lewis University (12-7, 6-5) to the Physical Activities Center Thursday before hosting the University of Wisconsin-Parkside (14-5, 9-2) Saturday.  UW-Parkside, who plays at Kentucky Wesleyan College Thursday, starts this week tied with USI for first in the GLVC East Division.
