PREVIOUSLY
Tyresse Williford scored a career-high 33 points but the Cougars couldn't get past Murray State as SIUE dropped an 82-72 decision to the Racers in front of 2,178 fans. Ja Morant's career-best 40 points paced surging Murray State. Williford made 10 of 17 shots and converted all 11 of his free throw attempts as the Cougars went 16 for 16 from the foul line. Brandon Jackson scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds. The Cougars made 26 of 63 shots, were 4 of 19 on 3-pointers and snagged 31 rebounds, three more than the Racers.
 
PERFECTION
SIUE's 16-for-16 performance from the foul line against Murray State marked the first time since 2008 that the Cougars were perfect in free throw shooting.
 
TY'S TIME
Williford's 33 points against Murray State are the fourth most in a game in SIUE's Division I era. The transfer from Wabash Valley earned co-Newcomer of the Week honors from the OVC Monday. He averaged 23 points and four assists last week. 
 
ON POINT
The Cougars' 94 points in the home win over SEMO was a season high and were the most points ever scored by SIUE in an OVC game. 
 
FRESHMAN AWARD
Cameron Williams was selected as the OVC co-Freshman of the Week Jan. 7. He averaged 22.5 points a game against Southeast Missouri and Eastern Illinois, including a career-high 27 points against SEMO. 
 
OVERTIME
SIUE hadn't played an overtime game since Jan. 2017 at Austin Peay. The Cougars have played three this season. SIUE has not won an overtime game since February 2014 against Southeast Missouri.
