SIUE sits idle from GLVC basketball on Thursday and returns to league play on Saturday as it entertains Lewis in a 7:30 p.m. game.
The Cougars were all but eliminated from advancing to the GLVC Tournament after losses on Thursday and Saturday to Southern Indiana and Missouri-St. Louis. SIUE's losing streak now stands at six games.
"We're in a position now where we have three games left and playing for pride," said SIUE Coach Jack Margenthaler.
The Cougars will have extra time to prepare for the Lewis game. It also will be senior night when the Cougars honor lone senior Marty Perry (Jacksonville). The 6-9 forward needs just 40 points to become the 12th player in school history to score 1,000 points.
