Salukis crush Cougars

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- The Basketball Salukis remember the last time sister school SIU-E came to town.  The Cougars won 76-74 back in 2015, their only win in the series.

This year's Salukis were not about to let that happen again, whipping the visitors from Edwardsville 86-59.

The Salukis jumped out to a 30-8 first half lead, before the Cougars closed within 35-22 by the half.  The Dawgs blew it open further in the second half, leading by as many as 41 before settling for the 27-point win.

Sean Lloyd equaled his career high set Saturday at Murray State with 19 points to lead five in double figures.  Aaron Cook added 13.  Kavion Pippen and Jonathan Wiley each posted double-doubles--Pippen had 13 points and 13 rebounds, Wiley 12 points and ten rebounds.  Armon Fletcher had 11 points and five assists.

The Salukis improve to 3-2.  They will host San Jose State Saturday at 3:00.

The Cougars fall to 1-5.
