Delta State Fends Off Cougars


November 20, 2001


       Southern Illinois University Edwardsville men's basketball came back from double-digit deficits in both halves but fell to Delta State 68-65 Tuesday night at the Vadalabene Center.
       Garrett Thomas was the highlight for SIUE as he recorded a Cougar-record nine three-pointers. The previous record was held by Matt Fridley (1993-94).
       SIUE, 1-1, fell behind by 17 points in the first half after being outscored 20-3 in the first 10 minutes of the game. The Cougars clawed their way back by halftime and exchanged leads with less than a minute to play in the half. Delta State led going into halftime 37-36.
       The second half was much the same as SIUE fell 14 points behind only to come back. The Cougars cut the lead to two at 67-65 as Tim Bauersachs notched a layup.
       Rod Newton hit a free throw for Delta State with seven seconds left, but a final effort by Thomas to hit his 10th three-pointer of the night fell just short with one second left.
       SIUE now enters Great Lakes Valley Conference play on Saturday as it plays host to Bellarmine University. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
