Men's Basketball Takes Road Victories


December 3, 2001


       SIUE men's basketball Coach Jack Margenthaler has watched his Cougars improve as the season has evolved.
       On Saturday, he watched his team improve by the second. After falling behind Quincy by 17 points in the first half, SIUE used its defense to shut down the Hawks' offense for a 71-69 victory.
       Garrett Thomas (Riverton) scored a team-high 22 points against Quincy. Freshman Brent Mueller (Columbia) earned his first start and made the most of it with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
       SIUE also bounced Missouri-St. Louis from the ranks of the undefeated with an 80-70 win in St. Louis.
       "Defense has won the last two ball games," said Margenthaler.
       Three freshman started at Quincy and nine different players have earned starting nods this season. The starting lineup, noted Margenthaler, hasn't been an important factor for playing time and will continue "to be determined" as the team heads to Lewis and Wisconsin-Parkside this week.
       "We have to stay focused because the challenge keeps getting bigger. Lewis is a physical ball club. Wisconsin-Parkside is much-improved and confident this season," said Margenthaler.
