The 2017-18 season marks the 50th season of SIUE men's basketball. The men's basketball program began with the 1967-68 season, the first of three under the late Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Harry Gallatin.
SIUE Head Coach Jon Harris is in his third season at the helm of the Cougars. The native of Edwardsville, Illinois, is 18-56 overall. 
SIUE continues the OVC season and a four-game home stand. In six previous seasons, the Cougars have a 22-27 record in OVC games at Vadalabene Center.  
Four Cougars scored in double figures, but Belmont spoiled their OVC home opener 76-61 Thursday. The loss snapped SIUE's two-game win streak. Amanze Egekeze poured in 29 points – three shy of his season best -- to spur the Bruins. SIUE reserves accounted for 31 points, or 18 more than Belmont's substitutes. Daniel Kinchen led the Cougars with 14 points and Brandon Jackson recorded 12 points. Starters Jalen Henry (11 points), Justin Benton (10 points) and Christian Ellis (eight rebounds, seven points and three assists) also contributed to the cause. The Bruins led by as much as a 41-23 margin the first half and owned a 41-29 at half.
TSU owns a 7-1 advantage in the all-time series. The only SIUE win in the series came in 2015 when the Cougars prevailed 45-38. It remains the lowest point total allowed by SIUE in an OVC game.
