Salukis Slam New Orleans
CARBONDALE -- Four SIU players scored in double figures as the Salukis rolled to a 74-61 comeback win at SIU Arena Monday night.
The Salukis (6-2) trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half. After starting the game on an 8-0 run, the Privateers (3-6) proceeded to go on a 26-5 stretch that left Southern second guessing its fast start. But as quick as the Dawgs fell behind, they got back in the game, finishing the half on a 17-4 run to take a 30-28 advantage at the break.
Sophomore Dantiel Daniels led SIU with 20 points on 6-11 shooting. Freshmen Anthony Beane Jr. (17) and Jalen Pendleton (14) combined for nearly half of the team's points. Jeff Early added 12 points and a team high seven rebounds.
