Site News: The Upcoming Saluki All-Stars

The 81st Annual Academy Awards Press Room A at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood
The SIU men's basketball team has fallen on hard times.


At 11-17, the Salukis' only chance to make postseason play is to win the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.

Sad. (Especially for this beat writer who really looked forward to covering an NCAA Tournament game).

And while there is enough talent on this team to spring a few upsets in St. Louis, I have comprised an all-star team of former Salukis that couldn't fail at reaching the tourney even if it tried.

Starting tomorrow, I will unveil that list.

Here's how it's scheduled to go:

TUESDAY: Head Coach w/staff
WEDNESDAY: Starting backcourt
THURSDAY: Starting frontcourt
FRIDAY: Reserves

In the mean time, enjoy the beautiful Natalie Portman.
