Having been eliminated from qualifying for the GLVC Tournament, the SIUE men's basketball team may have the opportunity to have an effect on first-round matchups in the league tourney.
SIUE plays Saint Joseph's on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. The Cougars meet Indianapolis at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Coach Jack Margenthaler's club is 7-17 overall and 3-15 in the GLVC. It will be Margenthaler's final road trip as SIUE's head coach, having previously announced his retirement.
Marty Perry (Jacksonville) can place himself among an elite group of names by scoring 21 more points in the final two games. Perry needs 21 points to become the 12th player in school history to score 1,000 points.
The Cougars already have set school record for three-pointers made (192) and three-pointers attempted (553).
