For the second time in three days, the SIU men’s basketball team was able to protect home court and squeeze out a win at the SIU Arena.
The Salukis (12-7), after losing three consecutive games on their home court earlier in the season, won their second in a row 68-63 against non-conference foe Western Kentucky (11-9).
Head coach Chris Lowery said the key to the win was the defense of the Salukis.
“We’re guarding finally,” Lowery said. “We’re getting a lot of fouls because we’re in people’s crotch, and that’s the difference. You don’t get fouls if you’re 10 feet off a guy. You can’t wear people down if you’re playing passive defensively.”
