My wife and I both have degrees from Southern Illinois University (1993, 1994), so we are excited to see that the Salukis have made it to the Sweet 16 thanks to a "suffocating defense." They decisively beat Virginia Tech yesterday 63-48. I missed the end of the game because they were looking so unbeatable that they switched to another game on TV. Now they move on to play Kansas, the #1 ranked team in the West.
It's especially cool for us because the coach of SIU is Chris Lowery, the point guard of the Salukis when we were dating in college and attending every home game. One season we had like 4th row mid-court tickets.
