NORMAL, Ill. (AP) Jackie Carmichael had 18 points and 12 rebounds as Illinois State concluded nonconference play with an 83-57 victory over Austin Peay on Saturday.
Camichael's double-double was his fourth of the season and 25th of his career. Tyler Brown added 16 points, John Wilkins had 14 and Jon Ekey 11 for the Redbirds (9-3), who shot 50 percent from the floor. Brown also had a career-best six steals, while Johnny Hill and Kaza Keane each had six assists.
Anthony Campbell had 20 points for Austin Peay (4-8), which hit 12 of 24 3-pointers but also turned the ball over 25 times.
The game was tied at 23-all when Illinois State closed the first half on a 21-5 run. Three straight dunks by Brown, Wilkins and Carmichael highlighted the surge, and Austin Peay was scoreless for 3:59 during that stretch.
The Governors never got closer than 13 points in the second half.
WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper came back to the District on Monday. No baseball was played.
Rain storms cycled through the DMV starting around 6 p.m. at first delaying the series-opening game between the Nationals and Phillies, before it was finally postponed at 10 p.m. The game will be made up as part of a split-doubleheader on Wednesday. The first game is at 1:05 p.m., the second at 7:05 p.m.
The Tuesday starters for both teams remain the same: Patrick Corbin for the Nationals and Jake Arrieta for the Phillies.
Washington will need an extra starter during the week because it is playing seven games in six days. For instance, the Nationals could call someone up to pitch the first game Wednesday, and have Max Scherzer pitch on regular rest Wednesday night. The doubleheader being played Wednesday instead of Tuesday allows the Nationals plenty of time to import a starter for the day, if they choose to do it then.
However, Tuesday’s forecast is also rain-filled. Stay tuned.

The Stanley Cup no longer resides in Washington, and all eyes have shifted toward the offseason as the Capitals look to retool for next season. But, that doesn't mean we can't stop and appreciate the magical 2018 season now and again.
A week after reminiscing about the championship run and ensuing parade, the famous game show "Jeopardy!" gave us one more moment of glory on Monday night.
One of the clues featured in the latest episode had the Capitals as the answer and even featured Alexander Ovechkin.
It appears that one of the contestants did answer it correctly. More importantly, according to the replies, it was also cleared up that no one brought up the Pittsburgh Penguins during that round.
While it may be somewhat hard to cope with the fact that the Capitals will not be enjoying another offseason of championship partying in 2019 we can take pride in the fact that the question was about the Caps winning the Stanley Cup, and not centered around a dreaded title drought.
