Thoughts on SIU. Impressed or not?

SIU could easily be 4-0 right now in Valley play. They sit at 3-1 yet get no attention. Should teams lookout for them?

We will know more after Wednesday.

The guards played fantastic on Saturday vs MSU though.

3-1 is a little misleading when vs. Drake, vs. InSU, @ MoSt. With that the MoSt. win was a nice surprise but Hinson should have his team ready to play @ MoSt year in and year out for obvious reasons. Looking forward to Wednesday as a true barometer for potential in MVC play.

There's been no attention since there haven't been any SIU fans over here since 2007.

I'm impressed and I think they'll beat the Redbirds on Wednesday. Salukis should be motivated and ready to roll plus have the home court. If Danny boy and the birds find a way to win I'll be pretty impressed...but I don't think it'll happen.

The game on Wednesday is interesting. I think ISU gets it done, but SIU is playing alright and it's possible they catch ISU looking ahead to the WSU matchup. As if ISU's 4-0 start doesn't fully show it, if they can avoid the trap game on Wednesday, I'd wager that regardless of who wins the matchup this weekend ISU will be in the race to the end. These are the sort of games they haven't been able to avoid letdowns in the last couple of years.

Would love your take on SIU; i sadly haven't caught one of their games yet... what's the scouting report?

As evidenced by this guy's first ever post only when they show some promise!

They are playing better than anybody thought they would. When they put it all together I am impressed. I thought they were a team the Aces could sweep, now I hope we can beat them at the Ford, although the Aces will have to play better than they are now or it won't happen.

Imagine if they still had Bola and Jordan Caroline.

SIU has a one game lead on four teams for third place. Every team behind the Salukis has at least one game against WSU/ISUr. SIU has faced neither to this point. To me, this just says what we already knew...it's going to be a dogfight for third place. In my mind, SIU is no closer to being a third place team than they are to being a Thursday team at this point in the season. That doesn't mean you shouldn't be excited for the 3-1 start!

That's not entirely true but that's a great one liner. Well done. :D

I saw the Salukis in person last weekend and I was impressed. I think they could surprise everyone.
