SIU Holds On in Green Bay
GREEN BAY -- Behind a circus shot from sophomore Josh Swan and four Saluki players in double-figures, SIU rallied to slip by Green Bay 72-70 Saturday night at the Resch Center.
The Salukis broke a 68-point tie with 1:30 to play off Swan's bucket. Then Anthony Beane Jr. gave the Dawgs a four-point lead on a pull-up jumper. A SIU turnover off an inbound pass with eight seconds to play gave Green Bay a potential game-tying shot, but it fell just short.
The win gives SIU three road victories this season, one more than all of last year.
