The cause of death of an SIU student has yet to be determined. Rev. Bob Gray, SIUC’s police chaplain, confirmed Nathan Morrow, a student and member of the congregation at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Carbondale where Gray is a pastor, died Thursday. Although the cause of death is undetermined, Morrow had been at St. Louis University Hospital after being involved in an assault incident on Oct. 23, sources have told the Daily Egyptian.

University information states the 31-year-old was a senior studying art. Shawn Spooner, one of Morrow’s coworkers at the Student Center’s Craft Shop, said he will be greatly missed. Spooner said she has attended the university with Morrow for five years, and he was a very passionate person with a big heart and loved what he did. Spooner said she wants the campus community to know Morrow was a genuine, one-of-a-kind person. Gray said visitation and funeral services will

be held in his hometown of Mount Pulaski on Tuesday. He said a memorial service will also be held at 3 p.m. Nov. 25 at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Carbondale. A benefit will be held to raise funds for the Morrow family. Two bands, I Am Ruin and In The Wake of Fiction, will play at 10 p.m. Nov. 28 at Tres Hombres, where a silent auction and raffle will be held as well. Calls made to the Carbondale Police Department concerning the assault incident have not been returned, and Gray said an autopsy will be performed.

SIU has been recognized for its efforts to develop a diverse campus community. The university has been named one of 48 schools in the nation to receive the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity award from INSIGHT into Diversity magazine. The December 2012 issue will feature the list of institutions awarded. The award honors U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion. “It is always wonderful to get national recognition about SIU’s celebration of diversity and our commitment to inclusion,” Chancellor Rita Cheng said. “The rich diversity of our campus contributes in a significant manner to the education of our students and adds to student learning and success.”

According to the group’s website, INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine has been in circulation for 40 years and is the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. The HEED award recipients were selected based on the institutions’ diversity and inclusion initiatives. The universities are expected to include all aspects of diversity including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities and members of the LGBTQ community. “I think SIU does a good job with the resources it has to incorporate diversity, but we can always do better,” said Wendy Weinhold, Coordinator of LGBT*Q Resource Center. “With the LGBT*Q community that I work with often being marginalized, the university does a good job offering outreach and events that recognize and provide educational outreach for LGBT*Q folks.”

Weinhold said she thinks diversity is a necessary part of the higher education mission and an important tool for learning. A call for HEED award applications was announced in March, according to the website. Recipients of the award range from large to small, including public and private schools, community colleges and graduate schools. Institutions were assessed based on the school’s success in catering to diversity and inclusion of students, faculty and staff. “Recently, SIU added several new programs to further enhance our student experience, including creation of the Center for Inclusive Excellence and the launch of the Black Male Initiative,” said Cheng. “It is nice that the tremendous commitment of our faculty, staff and students to diversity is getting noticed.”

The legalization of gay marriage in three states this election may lead other states to consider it, too. Four states had amendments on the ballot related to gay marriage. In three states — Maine, Maryland and Washington — voters approved the legalization of gay marriage. In Minnesota, an amendment passed that makes it illegal to ban gay marriage. Nine states — Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and Washington — have now legalized gay marriage, according to the National Conference of State Legislature website. The data also shows five states allow civil unions, which are different from gay marriages in that they are only recognized in some states, and couples do not receive a number of protections and rights that civil marriages receive such as tax relief and emergency medical decision-making power. Illinois allowed civil unions after the General Assembly passed the Civil Union Act in December 2010, which established legal protections for samesex couples across the state. Gov. Pat Quinn signed the legislation into law in January 2011. Wendy Weinhold, coordinator of LGBT*Q Resource Center, said every election is important for the LGBT community. She said Illinois allows civil unions so that same-sex couples can be recognized. “Civil unions are important because LGBT people can be recognized as people who can love,” Weinhold said. She said gay marriage is not just about the institution of marriage but also to have the same taxation rights as any other heterosexual couple. “Marriage is a privilege that favors heterosexuals,” Weinhold said. She said she is hopeful that the LGBT community will be more accepted in the future. “I am positive that in the next 25 or so years, it will be a much better environment,” Weinhold said. She said a large amount of attention and money goes toward LGBT equality, and the sooner it is legalized, the sooner attention can be focused on issues that have been overlooked such as equality between those of different class, ability and gender. David Yepsen, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, said the election was a definite success for the younger generation and Democrats. “I think the gay community has a lot to celebrate, not only with the electoral votes but with the change of public attitude,” he said. A poll conducted by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute that was published in September asked Illinoisans to take a position on the legal rights of gay and lesbian couples. The results state 43.6 percent said they think gay or lesbian couples should be allowed to marry; 31.8 percent think couples should be allowed to form civil unions; and 20.2 percent think there should be no legal recognition of relationships between gay or lesbian couples. The remaining 4.4 percent said they do not know where they stand. Yepsen said the success of gay marriage in the election was largely caused by a new attitude that younger Americans have. He said younger Americans are more comfortable with previously controversial social issues.

The Center for Inclusive Excellence launched this fall and incorporates the Black Resource Center, Hispanic Resource Center and LGBT*Q Resource Center and facilitates development of a culture of diversity throughout campus through a variety of efforts and activities, according to its website. Sapphire Cureg, director of SIU’s Center for Inclusive Excellence said she is truly excited for SIU to receive such an honor. “This award on inclusion and diversity demonstrates that SIUC is comprehensively shaping and building a learning, research and teaching environment that benefits everyone in our changing diverse environments,” she said. “Importantly, this award will constantly remind us that inclusive excellence must remain strong in SIUC’s landscape.” Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity Magazine, stated she hopes the award serves as a reminder that diversity and inclusion must remain priorities in higher education, according to the magazine’s website.

“Every college and university should recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion as being part of their everyday life on campus,” she stated on the website. “Our students of today are the employees of tomorrow and the future of our country. As students begin to enter the workforce and a global society, they must first be surrounded by and supported by faculty and staff that understand the differences among cultures and their needs.” Weinhold said she hopes the university sees the award as a beginning rather than an end. “As a university and an institution, we should take away from this that we are on the right path to becoming entirely inclusive,” Weinhold said. “We have started the journey to being truly inclusive and given some buoyancy to continue on that path of great adversity.” Other HEED award members include Georgia State University, Michigan State University, Texas Tech University, the United States Air Force Academy and the University of Virginia.

WA S H I N G TO N — The way the FBI responded to Jill Kelley’s complaint about receiving harassing emails, which ultimately unraveled or scarred the careers of ex-CIA Director David Petraeus and Marine Gen. John Allen, is the exception, not the rule. The FBI commonly declines to pursue cyberstalking cases without compelling evidence of serious or imminent harm to an individual, victims of online harassment, advocacy groups and computer crime, experts told The Associated Press. But in the sensational episode that uncovered the spy chief’s adulterous affair, the FBI’s cyberdivision devoted months of tedious investigative work to uncover who had sent insulting and anonymous messages about Kelley, the Florida socialite who was friendly with Petraeus and Allen — and friends with a veteran FBI counterterrorism agent in Tampa. The bureau probably would have ignored Kelley’s complaint had it not been for information in the emails that indicated the sender was aware of the travel schedules of Petraeus and Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. Instead, the FBI considered this from the earliest stages to be an exceptional case, and one so sensitive that FBI Director Robert Mueller and Attorney General Eric Holder were kept notified of its progress. How the FBI’s investigation unfolded — especially its decision not to alert the White House, the director of national intelligence or Congress about its discovery of Petraeus’ sexual affair until Election Day — is under scrutiny, especially because there is no indication so far that any criminal charges will be filed. Mueller and his deputy, Sean Joyce, have met privately with lawmakers to defend how the inquiry was handled. Holder said on Thursday that law enforcement officials did not inform the president and Congress about the probe because it did not uncover any threat to national security. President Barack Obama said he was withholding judgment until he learns more. “You know, we don’t have all the information yet,” Obama said at a White House news conference. “But I want to say that I have a lot of confidence generally in the FBI.” He added that it was “best

Michelle Garcia, director of the Stalking Resource Center at the National Center for Victims of Crime. “Given the variety of crimes that the FBI is responsible for addressing, I think often some of the stalking ones don’t elevate to the top of the priority list,” she said. State police agencies have little contact with the FBI in responding to cyberstalking cases, Garcia said. “In our work with local law enforcement, very rarely do they talk about working with federal authorities on these cases.” The Petraeus case has drawn attention to how easy it is for the government to examine emails and computer files if they believe a law was broken. The FBI and other investigating agencies armed with subpoenas and warrants routinely gain access to email accounts offered by Google, Yahoo and other Internet providers. Civil liberties groups have criticized the FBI for pursuing the investigation of the emails to Kelley because there is no indication the messages contained any threatening language or classified information. The episode underscores the need to strengthen the legal protections for electronic communications, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. Federal agencies can obtain a substantial amount of information about the online activities of an individual without getting a warrant from a judge. A subpoena approved by a federal prosecutor is usually sufficient to get access to stored emails and login data. “These are invasive powers that need to have a check against overuse and abuse,” said Chris Soghoian, a senior policy analyst at the ACLU. “And that check should be a judge.” The Senate Judiciary Committee is meeting later this month to consider legislation that would do just that. The bill would require a warrant for all Internet communications. Law enforcement officials have resisted the change. But all the attention from the Petraeus case could give proponents of the legislation the momentum they need to push the bill through. “If we learn nothing else from the Petraeus scandal, it should be that our private digital lives can become all too public when over-eager federal agents aren’t held to rigorous legal standards,” staff attorneys for the Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote in a blog post.



Layton Guyton, a student at the Dayemi Homeschool Collective, performs as Jimi Hendrix on Friday during the Woodstock Restaurant Night fundraiser at the collective. Belen Avellan, a parent at the collective, said the students were inspired to do a Woodstock fundraiser after learning about the history of rock and roll. “They got to choose a character to perform and focused on the peace, love and music of the festival,” Avellan said. “It’s a great way to learn about the time period.”


“I think public opinion is shifting in America,” Yepsen said. Yepsen said the gay marriage issue would not end with the election. “This could all happen really soon, and I think the election spurred it on,” Yepsen said. “This issue will make its way to the Supreme Court.” He said SIU and Illinois are generally supportive of gay marriage. “I think it is pretty clear that gay marriage is a continuing issue in Illinois due to the large Democrat population,” Yepsen said. Cody Clark, vice president of the Saluki Rainbow Network and a junior from Mount Vernon studying art, said most people he has met at SIU have supported gay rights. He said he does think the campus could be more supportive of the gay community through more LGBT events. Clark said he was pleased with the results of the election. “I was honestly surprised at all the states that legalized gay marriage,” Clark said. He said he also thinks gay marriage will be legalized nationally in the future. “I think eventually it will because throughout the years the states have made new legislature that make it easier for the LGBT community,” Clark said. “People will change in the future to be more inclusive.” Elizabeth Zinchuk can be reached at or 536-3311 ext. 259.




Like all stories centered around Abercrombie vampires and anorexic teens, there isn’t much to like about “Twilight.” Yet Stephenie Meyer was somehow able to make the impossible a very depressing reality. “Breaking Dawn - Part 2” is the final installment in the “Twilight” adaptations and follows Edward and Bella as she is turned into a red-eyed vampire after she give birth to a half-vampire, halfhuman girl. The story takes a turn for the worse when the Volturi, a coven of royal vampires, is informed the couple have an immortal child, which is a crime punishable by death. Please note this review contains SPOILERS, if you really care about keeping this movie secret. Austin Flynn: I have not read the books or seen any of the other movies, but the plot has been painfully explained to me by fans, so I’m speaking to anyone who might be interested to see them now. My advice: stay far away. My expectations before seeing the movie were lower than the ground beneath my feet, but somehow it managed to burrow itself even further. Anything that could be wrong with a movie was wrong with this one. My first complaint was a CGI infant. At first, I didn’t think the vampires could look much hokier, but then Bella gave birth to a pixelated baby. The effects were terrible and it seemed completely unnecessary. The begging question was, “Why

’ve seen every “Twilight” movie, but I’ve never read the books. The series’ quality is a bit like a roller coaster .

not just use a real baby to fit the role?” It was one of the many downfalls that brought me out of the experience completely. Karsten Burgstahler: I’ve seen every “Twilight” movie, but I’ve never read the books. The series’ quality is a bit like a roller coaster — just when the movies start to become OK, they plummet toward awful. I didn’t even notice the infant was CGI, or maybe I wasn’t paying close enough attention. Perhaps those effects would have been better used fixing up the first sequences of the film, where Bella first runs like a vampire and the audience is treated to some of the year’s worst CGI. I always complained that the “Twilight” films didn’t have enough going on and the actors were too stoic. Someone obviously heard my complaints, because “Breaking Dawn Part - 2” is the polar opposite. There is too much going on here, plus some ridiculous overacting. Kristen Stewart screams and whines, and she looks just as ridiculous as when she just stares at Robert Pattinson. AF: Speaking of the actors, there was just no chemistry at all. When the best acting comes from Bella’s father telling Jacob to keep his clothes on, you know something’s just not right. I believe the film was poking fun at the fact that Lautner’s abs brought in half the audience. If he can’t find any work after “Twilight,” he might be able to star in the “Magic Mike” sequel. The film’s only interesting sequence was the fight scene where prissy, sparkly vampires were getting their heads ripped off left and right. KB: The series finally rewarded all the boyfriends who had to sit through these ordeals. But then it copped out. I agree about the selfawareness; many scenes seemed

like they were inside jokes. The camera never stopped rolling, and the film is filled with scenes of the actors just goofing off. The series is really only meant for the fans, and if the box office receipts are any indication, the target audience is ponying up the dough. But “Harry Potter” was able to attract fans and non-fans alike because the stories were strong enough. The “Twilight” films are just flimsy. When you think about it, there is really nothing at stake in this final movie. All these characters bicker over nothing. It’s an exercise in futility. AF: That’s a perfect way to describe this movie. If nothing else, “Breaking Dawn - Part 2” may just win best comedy of 2012. Without having seen the other movies in the series, I’m already deeming this one the best because it signals the end of something very disturbing. I would rather watch a 24-hour movie marathon of Nicolas Cage than put myself through such hell again. Although fans of the series may be crying at the end of their vampire erotica, the tears coming out of my eyes are of pure joy. Moviegoers who have not seen the series should save their money. Twi-hards, it’s likely you have already seen the movie several times and with that I have only two words: for shame. Last, but not least, Robert Pattinson, I hope you have trouble sleeping tonight because I know I will. Austin Flynn can be reached at or 536-3311 ext. 257.

Junior runner Brian Dixon, right, and redshirt freshman Oscar Medina take laps Wednesday at the Saluki Track and Field Complex. Dixon competed Saturday in the NCAA National Championships in Louisville, Ky., and placed 143rd out of 245 runners in the 10k race.

Junior cross-country runner Brian Dixon finished 143rd out of 245 runners in the 10K race this Saturday. The race culminated a successful season for Dixon, who scored top-10 finishes in all of his conference races this year. He has received Midwest All-Region honors, All-MVC honors and MVC Scholar-Athlete.

Saluki Volleyball split its matches this weekend, as it lost to Illinois State in a close contest Friday but defeated Indiana State Saturday. The Saluki women played point for point against the Redbirds but fell by the score of 19-25, 2523, 18-25, 25-19 and 13-15 in Normal. Bailey Yeager broke SIU’s alltime single season digs record by accounting for 32 digs in a stellar performance. Yeager has a total of 593 digs for the season and has 1,387 career digs — good for third most in the team’s history. The Illinois State win ties the team with Southern Illinois’ 10



“Twenty assists was the number we wanted to get tonight,” he said. “we did a better job moving the ball and attacking their zone.” The Bulldogs of St. Benedictine were able to use the zone defense effectively in the first half, holding a

Dixon is the first Saluki to qualify for the National Championships since Jeff Schirmer accomplished the feat in both 2008 and 2009. Oklahoma State won the national title over secondplace Wisconsin by 63 match points. Demario Phipps-Smith can be reached at or at 536-3311 ext. 269.

Free throws usually do not appear in the highlight reel, but they can often make the difference between a win and a loss. The SIU women’s basketball team was on the wrong side of the foul battle against Loyola on Saturday night in Chicago and lost 82-73. The Ramblers attempted 36 free-throws while the Salukis only appeared at the charity stripe 11 times. SIU (0-2) was led by junior guard Jordyn Courier, who had a productive night on both sides of the ball. Courier eclipsed her career scoring record with 19 points, while adding six rebounds, three assists and one block. She played 36 of the 40 total game minutes and made five of nine three-point attempts. “I think if there is one kid that is playing to (her) potential right now, it’s her,” said head coach Missy Tiber. “It’s not just her stat line. It’s all the other little plays that aren’t recorded in a box score (such as) the loose balls and the helping on defense and making plays.” Sophomore guard Cartaesha Macklin bounced back from a difficult first game of the season by posting 14 points and five rebounds. Sophomore forward Alexus Patterson led the team with 10 rebounds. She also recorded eight points, four steals and three assists. Freshman forward Jameeka Bouie, who played only five minutes in the season opener against Central Arkansas, made a significant contribution on offense with 12

points in limited playing time. The Ramblers (2-1) fared even better on the offensive end, with four players scoring in double digits. The stars of the game were sophomore forward Simone Law and freshman guard Taylor Johnson who put up a combined 53 points. “I really believed coming into this game that our defense would be a lot better,” Tiber said. “We’ve got to be better defensively, moving our feet and not fouling. Two kids had huge games for them, and we didn’t have an answer for them.” The Salukis hung tough with Loyola for most of the night, but a 10-0 run by the Ramblers in each half offset any rhythm SIU had. After a 14-1 Saluki scoring surge in the first half, Loyola came back and scored 10 in a row to end the first half. When the Salukis led 62-60 with 7:12 left in the game, the Ramblers countered with a 10-0 run and effectively put the game out of reach. “It was 62-all and we got three straight stops, and we turned the ball over three straight times,” Tiber said. “I really feel like that was our chance to do something, and we just didn’t make it happen.” The SIU women’s basketball team will return to the court Friday and Saturday in Coral Gables, Fla. The Salukis will compete in the University of Miami Thanksgiving Tournament against Radford University on Friday. They will play either Miami or Florida Atlantic on Saturday.

conference victories this season. The Redbirds pulled ahead of the Salukis early in the first set, and despite tying the game at 11-11, Southern wasn’t able to overtake ISU for the set. The Salukis won the second (2523) and fourth (25-19) sets because of timely blocking and never allowed the Redbirds to claim the lead in the second. After Southern pushed the lead to 10-7 in the fourth set, Illinois State called a timeout to slow the Salukis momentum. The strategy proved ineffective as SIU continued to hold the lead after the break in play. ISU managed an early lead in the fifth set going up 9-4. Southern then called a timeout of its own and clawed within three points of the

Redbirds at 13-10. Illinois State got a kill through for set point and led 14-10. After scoring two consecutive points and a net violation by ISU, the Salukis were only down 14-13. However, Illinois State won the set 15-13 and the match. Southern tabbed a team hitting percentage of .167 Friday, but averages .240 attack percentage for the rest of the season. The Salukis did more than cure their hitting woes in the domination of Indiana State Saturday. Southern hit .326 against the Sycamores en route to a 25-22, 25-21, 25-9 sweep in the final Missouri Valley Conference match of the year. “We are still getting the opportunity to get better and are

feeling better about going into the tournament,” SIU head coach Justin Ingram said. “We understand who we are as a team now and feel comfortable playing any team.” SIU struggled hitting early on and posted its lowest hitting percentage of the night in the first set. “In the first set we were having some difficulties defending some of their hitters,” Ingram said. “Their offense was clicking and our defense wasn’t responding.” In the second set of the night, the score was tied 13 times with six lead changes. Each team went on numerous multiple-point sprees throughout the set, trading the lead. The Salukis rallied to collect the final points, holding off the Sycamores to win set two 25-21.

Senior Laura Thole gave the Salukis a boost in the third set with her serves; giving SIU a 7-0 edge. The team dominated the rest of the set, winning 25-9. “Laura started out the match with great serves limiting their options and made them rely on other hitters and that is where the separation began,” Ingram said. The Salukis must now prepare for the MVC Tournament. Seedings will be decided at the end of tonight’s Missouri Valley matches. The tournament is set to begin Thursday in Springfield, Mo.

more athletic and talented Saluki team to just one 3-point field goal and only eight assists on six turnovers. However, Hinson and his staff were able to decipher the zone in the second half and scored 58 points after the half. “I heard from everybody in this region that we don’t do well against a zone, so we’ve been practicing against

a zone,” Hinson said. “I thought we attacked the zone about as well as a lot of teams I’ve had.” The Salukis allowed the Bulldogs to shoot 46 percent from 3-point distance. Hinson said such a poor defensive effort is unacceptable and changes to the starting rotation are under consideration. “We’re not playing the right guys,”

he said. “We are (playing) to guard and our starters didn’t guard tonight.” Hinson said before the game he wrote a two word message to his team — Ohio Dominican. The Division II opponent defeated the Salukis by a point last year. The first-year coach for the Salukis said Saturday night’s contest was a statement game. “We wanted to send a message to

non-Division I schools,” he said. “You’re not going to come here and beat us.” The Saluki men will travel to Edwardsville on Nov. 20 to face the SIUE Cougars.

A fiery halftime speech from SIU coach Dale Lennon propelled the Saluki football team to a 35-0 win over Western Illinois in the season finale Saturday at Saluki Stadium. SIU (6-5, 5-3) was unimpressive against the overmatched Leatherneck team (3-8, 1-7) in the first half, and the Salukis led 14-0 despite 120 yards of total offense. “We knew we were a better team than what we showed in the first half,” senior running back Steve Strother said. “Coach Lennon came into the locker room and he let us have it. He told us that we’ve got to be better than that, and I think everybody stepped up because of that and we came out and showed who we were in the second half.” Strother bolstered the Saluki ground game, finishing his final collegiate contest with 18 carries for 90 yards. Lennon said his halftime message to the team was intended to end the year on a positive note. “I got after them,” he said. “The thing I wanted to see was passion. I wanted us to come out and really make a statement with this final game to set the direction of the program, to feel good about what we accomplished on the season. They came out in the second half and performed well.” SIU scored on its first possession after intermission on a 1-yard run by sophomore running back Mika’il McCall and then tacked on another score six minutes later on a 19-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Kory Faulkner to senior receiver David Lewis. Faulkner finished the day with 132 passing yards and two touchdowns, one on a naked bootleg on the goal line to give SIU a 7-0 lead to start the second quarter.


s a senior, going out with a winning record and winning your last game is a good way to end your career. — Ken Boatright senior Saluki Defensive End While the offense started slowly, the Salukis were picked up early by a defensive touchdown, the team’s ninth non-offensive score of the season. With 7:40 to go in the second quarter, senior linebacker Kevin Reed tipped a pass thrown by WIU quarterback Hayden Northern on 3rd-and-11 and caught it out of the air before taking the ball 18 yards for a touchdown. “Scoring on defense is something that we’ve been doing a lot, and it’s just a key focus,” senior defensive end Ken Boatright said. “We try to create turnovers and make big plays to help out the offense.” Boatright had five tackles and a sack in the contest. The Saluki defense managed five sacks and limited the Western offense to 142 yards of total offense in the game. The team’s final score came on a 1-yard roll-out pass from junior quarterback A.J. Hill to junior fullback Rik Hicks with 6:19 to play. Overall, Boatright said the shutout was a good way to cap the season and his career. “As a senior, going out with a winning record and winning your last game is a good way to end your career,” he said. “This game was very important, and the way we finished this game is a good statement.” Ben Conrady can be reached at or 536-3311 ext. 282.


Senior running back Steve Strothers carries the ball down the field after junior quarterback Kory Faulkner hands off to him Saturday against Western Illinois University at Saluki Stadium. In the team’s final game, SIU shut out Western with a 35-0 win. This was the Salukis’ first winning season since 2009.


Kendal Brown-Surles, left, Josh Swan, center, and Anthony Beane Jr. celebrate the team’s victory over Benedictine University-Springfield Saturday at SIU Arena. The Salukis defeated the Bulldogs 100-62, shooting 65 percent from the field. SIU scored 100 points in a single game for the first time since 2002. The Salukis will face SIU-Edwardsville on Tuesday at the Sam M. Vadalabene Center in Edwardsville.

The men’s basketball team defeated St. Benedictine in decisive fashion, winning 100-62 Saturday night. The Salukis shot 66.7 percent in the contest and made 25 of 32 shots in the second half, shooting 78 percent in the last 20 minutes. The shot selection improved for Southern Illinois as the team made four of six shots from 3-point distance after halftime, while only completing one of its first six shots from distance in the first period. Five players scored double-digit points for the Salukis, who were led by senior guard Jeff Early’s 19-point effort. Senior guard T.J. Lindsay made two of the team’s five 3-point shots and ended the night with 15 points. Freshman guard Anthony Beane Jr. completed eight of nine shots from the field for 16 points and accounted for four assists. “I think when your ball club shoots 65 percent from the field, you have to be doing something right,” SIU

head coach Barry Hinson said. “It all starts from throwing the ball inside and producing from the interior. I thought we did a better job of reversing the basketball and a better job of distributing the basketball.” Sophomore forward Dantiel Daniels added 14 points in 18 minutes for the Salukis in his first game back from a groin injury. The sophomore also blocked two shots and made five of his six freethrows. “I’ve been away for a while now ... It feels good to be back out there,” Daniels said. “As far as offense goes, we executed well, and our transition game was good.” The Salukis were especially good at distributing the ball and played very unselfish basketball. The team scored 62 points in the paint and had 18 points off fast break opportunities. Southern Illinois passed for 22 total assists and all of its players scored at least one field goal. Lindsay said the team had been practicing better ball movement all week. Please see BASKETBALL | 5
