By WSIL Sports

 CARBONDALE -- SIU men's basketball head coach Barry Hinson returned to practice on Tuesday. 

Hinson had been on a leave of absence since Christmas due to his son-in-law, Niles Thomason, passing away. 

Hinson released a statement: "On behalf of Niles' parents, Johnny and Theresa Thomason his sister Corrie, my daughter Tiffany, and my wife Angie, I want to express our gratitude for the outpouring of support we've received from Saluki nation. Your many letters, emails, text messages, as well as your thoughts and prayers, have helped sustain us."

Hinson ran practice as normal, but he decided to not speak with the media until after Thursday's game against Wichita State.
