Daniels Set to Return


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- SIU sophomore forward Dantiel Daniels admits that he will be way out of shape Saturday night, but he is anxiously awaiting his season debut against Benedictine-Springfield.

Daniels has been slowed for weeks by a groin injury. Following a couple of setbacks, he's finally ready to go.

The talented sophomore watched from the bench Monday night as the Salukis won Barry Hinson's debut, 72-55 at New Orleans.

A healthy Daniels would be a huge boost to a Saluki team that is very thin on the front line. Daniels was an MVC All-Freshman team pick a year ago, after leading the conference in blocked shots and finishing in the top five in field goal percentage.
