Cougars Show Braves Some GLVC Roundball


November 10, 2001


            PEORIA - For Bradley fans expecting an easy walk over an NCAA Division II school, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville men's basketball team proved to be as formidable a foe than some of Bradley's regular-season opponents.
            SIUE lost 89-77 to Bradley in an exhibition game but set Carver Arena records for three-pointers made in a game (15) and attempted (37). The Cougars were tied with Bradley with eight minutes to go and were down by just two points with four minutes to play.
            Marty Perry set the tone early by pounding home a dunk to give the Cougars a 2-0 early lead. Perry led the Cougars with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting.
            Bradley picked up most of its offense from its guards. East St. Louis native Phillip Gilbert led all scorers with 29 points, and James Gillingham added 21.
            SIUE was hot from three-point range especially in the second half, hitting 10 of 21. Four different Cougars combined for the 15 three-pointers. They were Perry, Derrick Fomby, Garrett Thomas and Rob Baumgardner. The Cougars shot 40 percent from three-point range for the game.
            Thomas finished with 18 points on six three-pointers. Fomby, who led the Cougars with eight assists, scored 16 points behind four three-pointers. All six of Baumgardner's points came off three-pointers.
            SIUE begins the 2001-2002 season next Saturday as Monmouth College invades the Vadalabene Center for a 7:30 p.m. game.
