Salukis' Dillard continues to grow under Lowery

Chris Lowery knows all too well what sophomore point guard Kevin Dillard means to the SIU men’s basketball team.

Lowery, the team’s head coach, was the Salukis’ point guard during the 1992-93 season when the team broke a 16-year drought and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.

Now, 17 years later, Lowery is on the sidelines watching Dillard attempt to end a two-year NCAA Tournament-less drought.

Lowery said the success of the team is dictated on how Dillard plays and he coaches, and when Dillard is scoring 17 points and dishing out 10 assists as he did Monday against Western Kentucky, the Salukis will win a lot of games.
