Southern Illinois Salukis basketball notes:
All the Saluki’s bad losses came in November. If you think about it, it’s not so surprising that Egyptian dogs have problems in Alaska. That was a long time ago and the important thing is after a mid-February slide, SIU won four in a row heading into the NCAAs, including the MVC Tournament. Apparently defense really does win championships. Southern Illinois only gives up 57 points per game, ranking them fifth in the nation. Keep an eye on freshman Bryan Mullins. He is a good ball handler, but he can force up a few too many shots when he’s feeling hot.
Likely 2006 NCAA Tournament finish: First Round
