CARBONDALE -- The Basketball Salukis will once again need name tags for a while to get familiar with their new teammates.
Entering his third season as SIU head coach, Barry Hinson has completely remade the roster.
The 2014 version of the Dawgs will have six newcomers, plus a pair of redshirts that will be seeing their first action for the Salukis--freshman point guard KC Goodwin and Illinois transfer Ibby Djimde.
The incoming class has both size and athleticism--two much needed commodities for the maroon and white.
With all these newcomers, the Salukis will be extremely young. Woodlawn walk-on Dawson Verhines is the only senior on the roster. Junior Anthony Beane is the leading returning scorer at nearly 15 per game.
