June 9, 2010

EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - The SIUE Friends of Men's Basketball will hold its annual meeting 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Birger Hall.

The Friends group will be presenting SIUE Coach Lennox Forrester with a check for $4,000 to be used towards summer school funding for the men's basketball program.

SJ Morrison, the president of the SIUE Friends of Men's Basketball, said he has received a great deal of positive feedback for the donation to the program from current season ticket holders and new members of the group.

"This great generosity allows our student-athletes to remain on campus and continue to enhance their academic and athletic ability," said Forrester.

The Friends of Men's Basketball is the longest-running support group associated with Intercollegiate Athletics. The group provides financial support for the men's basketball program, occasional meals as allowed by the NCAA, and facilitates interaction between SIUE men's basketball and its fans. Anyone who would like to join the group can contact Morrison at 618-558-3062 or by e-mail at
