Five pages on last night’s game.
1. Here’s What Happened
The game was tight for almost the whole first half, until just under a minute to play. That’s when Christian Salecich gave the Cougars a little breathing room by hitting his second three pointer of the half and extending the lead to seven.
Salecich would hit another big three in the second half to push the Cougar lead to 12 at 63-51. It looked at that point the Cougars were going to run away with the win.
But back came the Skyhawks.
DeMarc Richardson would finish a lay-up on a pass from Mike Liabo to cap off a 10-0 run and we had a ballgame once again.
A few minutes later, Kris Davis delivered the dagger with a big time triple that gave SIUE an eight point advantage.
The Cougars went on to make enough free throws in the final minute to secure the 84-78 win.
