Ladies' Night--Saluki Basketball Style


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- The Basketball Salukis will play their home opener Saturday night at the Arena.

Thursday night, the team took a bit of a break and turned into teachers, if you will.

About 75 women came out to get a more in-depth look at players, coaches, and Saluki game strategy--all part of the first SIU Basketball Ladies' Night.

The women had an opportunity take part in dribbling and shooting drills, as well as try on game jerseys and mug with their favorite players for the camera.

The event was complete with food, wine, and a raffle, which made the on-court training even more fun.

If the smiles and laughs at the Arena were any indication, the first Ladies Night was a resounding success.

All proceeds from the event benefited the Women's Shelter of Carbondale.
