Basketball Salukis Wrap Up Exhibition Play with Win


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- The Basketball Salukis beat William Jewel 78-66 in their final exhibition Saturday.

Davante Drinkard led five Salukis in double figures with 17. Freshman Sean O'Brien and Anthony Beane added 13. Jalen Pendleton and Desmar Jackson each tallied 12.

Bean and Jackson incurred the wrath of head coach Barry Hinson by showing up late for pregame. Neither started. Neither entered the game until late in the first half. Hinson spent several minutes of his postgame press conference expressing his displeasure with Southern's top two players.

The Dawgs open the regular season Tuesday night at Missouri.
