2-7 AWAY                                9-1 HOME

Last Meeting at Murray, KY :
SIU Defeated Murray 63 TO 57 Ending Murray's 20-Game Home Winning Streak and giving Coach Steve Prohm his ONLY loss to SIU.

Keys to the game.....

  • Take care of the Ball - SIU excels at steals and forced turnovers, so they've got busy hands that pay off.  We must take care of the ball when handling it and especially watch the lazy/telegraphed passes which lead to transition baskets.
  • Guard the perimeter -                                                         

    • 90.8% of Brown's shots are 3's. 
    • 80.8% of Wonders' shots are 3's. 
    • 62.5% of Ferguson's shots are 3's. 
    • 59.3% of Jones' shots are 3's. 
    • 54.2% of Johnson's shots are 3's. 
    • 53.4% of D'Amico's shots are 3's. 
    • 52.1% of Banks' shots are 3's. 
    • 50.6% of Newton's shots are 3's.
    3.  Keep those hands active on Defense -
        SIU averages 13 Turnovers per game, but last  game out
        against us, they only had 4.
        That's 9 opportunities lost!
    4. Aggressively attack the basket
      We rank #1 in the MVC in Free Throws Made Per Game and
      we're getting there by being aggressive and going to the rim.

This is a game that will demonstrate if we are progressing or not.  Pull off an upset or hang with them to the end and I like our chances in the tourney.

I am feeling more optimistic about this game then normal.   I can see things coming together for a big win.

If Moore and Wood can penetrate and get SIU in foul trouble that will help. Burns needs to produce the way he did against ISU. We are overdue to play well on the road. But, we need to avoid falling behind by double digits. And, it's about time we hit as many 3's as our opponents do.

You guys should do just fine tonight. I'm heading over from Cape(weather pending) just to watch the Salukis lose. SEMO should've beat them here in December if not for Harris missing a wide open 3 at the buzzer.  I didn't see the game at Murray, but I'd pressure their guards as they're turnover prone and then keep them from getting to the FT line too much. Good luck, fellas!

It would be nice if Anderson and Morgan can provide some offense. They are both capable of hitting some 3 balls. I'm ready for our first MVC winning streak. I don't consider winning our first 2 conf games a winning streak.

Man I want to be optimistic. All Coach Mullins has to do is show his team this to fire them up:



Then again CSP could show this too to get men fired up or for a good laugh...
Murray State time to make history in a new conference! #Valley!

Justin Morgan turnover is inexcusable. Sit him. We have to have a player on the bench who can pass. 8 turnovers and counting.
