FOURTH SEASON
SIUE Head Coach Jon Harris is in his fourth season at the helm of the Cougars. The native of Edwardsville, Illinois, is 31-86 overall. 
 
PREVIOUSLY
SIUE used a powerful second half to defeat Tennessee Tech 76-68 Thursday at the Vadalabene Center and maintained its quest to qualify for next week's Ohio Valley Conference men's basketball tournament.
The Cougars put five players in double figures, benefited from a pair of second-half sprees and a strong defensive stand. While the Cougars got going with the first eight points of the second half to grab a 38-30 advantage, the Golden Eagles couldn't solve the SIUE defense. Tennessee Tech made only one basket in nearly the first 5.5 minutes of the second half and fell behind 40-32.
 
ACTION JACKSON
Brandon Jackson scored 22 points in back-to-back games last week at Tennessee State and Belmont. He has scored in double figures in 10 of his last 12 games and had his third double-double this year with 16 points and 10 rebounds against Eastern Illinois. 
 
TOP 50
David McFarland has 643 career points and is now 45th all-time in scoring at SIUE. Brandon Jackson stands at 633 and is 50th.
 
OVERTIME
SIUE has played five overtime games this year, which is a school record. The Cougars have played eight overtime periods, which is the most in the NCAA. 
 
COMEBACK COUGARS
The 16-point comeback vs. Morehead State was SIUE's largest of the year and the third time this season it has overcome a double-digit deficit. It also was SIUE's third win this year after trailing at halftime.
 
50-POINT HALF
The Cougars scored 51 points in the second half against Morehead State. It was the third time this season SIUE has scored at least 50 points in a half, not including overtime periods.
