LAST TIME
SIUE men's basketball's three-game winning streak came to an end Friday at the hands of Central Michigan. The Chippewas defeated the Cougars 70-52 Friday. Both teams struggled to find a rhythm on offense. The Cougars shot just 36.1 percent (22-61), while Central Michigan connected on only 33.9 percent (21-62) of its shots. The Cougars held a lead for nearly eight minutes to start the game. In a sign of things to come, Cecil Williams knocked down a pair of free throws to give CMU its first lead, at 13-11, with 10:37 left before halftime. A 9-0 run followed and helped the Chippewas take an 11-point lead into the half. SIUE never led the rest of the game.
