Men's Basketball Opens With Monmouth

November 12, 2001

            If the 89-77 loss at Bradley is any indication of how the men's basketball is going to be this season, SIUE's opponents had better think about defending the three-pointer.
            SIUE hit a Carver Arena record 15 three-pointers and took 37 total for the game. SIUE was even with the Missouri Valley Conference Bradley Braves with eight minutes to go and down by just two with four minutes to play.
            SIUE Coach Jack Margenthaler said he was a little disappointed the Cougars played 36 strong minutes and then had four minutes of weakness at the end of the game.
            "In the last four minutes, I felt we lost our poise and weren't disciplined," said Margenthaler.
            SIUE begins the 2001-2002 season against Monmouth College on Saturday at 7 p.m. Margenthaler said he expects Monmouth to use its experience as a catalyst for going after the Cougars.
            "They'll come in and give us some good, hard basketball," he said.
            Cougar fans shouldn't expect SIUE to put on the same type of display of three-point shooting the rest of the season. Much of that was the type of defense Bradley plays and the hot hands of Marty Perry (Jacksonville), Garrett Thomas (Riverton), Derrick Fomby (Hazel Crest) and Rob Baumgardner (Madisonville, Ky.).
            "I don't want this team to think we can do that night in and night out," added Margenthaler.
            The Cougars showed some good poise for a team which has played together much. "We had excellent effort (against Bradley). We didn't seem to be intimidated," Margenthaler said.
