Thanks to a 23-5 second-half-run, USI pulled away from Drury en route to a 75-57 victory at Ford Center in the GLVC Tournament Semifinals.  Aaron Nelson had 16 points and nine rebounds.  Orlando Rutledge chipped in thirteen points...Gavin Schumann and Lawrence Thomas added eleven apiece, and Taylor Wischmeier finished with ten.  The Eagles, in their fourth straight GLVC Tournament Final, will face Bellarmine...a battle of the fifth and sixth seeds respectively, Sunday at 3:30 p.m. USI has won two of the last three GLVC Tournament Titles, taking the trophy in 2012 in Springfield, Illinois.  In 2011, Bellarmine beat USI in a tourney final classic at Maryville, and Drury won the first GLVC Tournament ever played at Ford Center last season.
