Salukis in the City (of St. Louis)

This looks something more like out of a Cheaters TV show, but I swear up and down I wasn't creeping on Coach Lowery. In fact, C-Lo gave me a nice shout-out when he saw me courtside when I walked into the Scottrade Center before the SIU men's basketball team's open practice.

As one of the few student-journalists here in St. Louis, I was surprised to see SIU open its locker room to media. Of course I took advantage of it.

Here are some of that segments snippets:

Freshman G Kevin Dillard on the fan support SIU gets when it's on the road:

"Everywhere we go our fans travel with us. And as long as we come in and take care of business, we’ll be all right."

Freshman F Anthony Booker on focus:

“We’re just focused on trying to get as many wins as we can. I’m not really focused on the crowd or anything like that. I’ve got a job to do and that is to come down here and win three games."

Senior G Bryan Mullins on the status of his foot:

“It’s OK. It’s a little sore, we’ll see. We’re going to do another practice after this, do some stuff and see how it feels then probably decide tonight or tomorrow morning."
