Basketball Cranks it up a Notch in final Exhibition Game
Sam Donets Sports Director at WIDB.net
CARBONDALE-The Salukis Men’s Basketball team was the only winner this week at SIU asides from Hanger 9’s Adult Swim Carnival. But with the preseason now over, SIU has something positive to look forward to with the upcoming basketball season.
After watching the Dawgs crush division 2’s Missouri S&T 97-65. I wasn’t too sold on the play coming from everyone after a very sloppy start in the first half with the amount of missed shots to start the game, but after awhile it all… Continue reading

Nobody was expecting SIU to waltz into the UNI Dome Saturday and pull off the upset against the #2 Northern Iowa Panthers. Some of us weren’t expecting the Salukis to stay within three scores of the top team in the Valley.
But the Saluki defense did what many others couldn’t, keeping the potent UNI offense to 17 points while they held Walter Payton award candidate Tirrell Rennie to 189 all-purpose yards. The only problem with that is the offense didn’t show up again, and the Salukis lost 17-7.
The defense did their job, much like they did against North Dakota… Continue reading
With nine weeks having passed in the 2010 NFL season, the results have been all things but predictable. The state of Missouri is currently boasting two first place teams in the Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Rams. The Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals, both trendy Super Bowl picks before the season, are in last place. The San Diego Chargers are sporting a 4-5 record, despite having the league’s best offense and defense. Donovan McNabb has been benched in favor of Rex Grossman in Washington and Michael Vick has emerged as the franchise quarterback in Philadelphia.
This season… Continue reading

If preseason expectations were any indication of how a season would actually turn out, the St. Louis Cardinals would have met the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series, instead of the San Francisco Giants. But like the overused sports cliché says, “that’s why they play the games.”
The Cardinals entered the season with expectations of a return to the World Series, and with their core of Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright, those expectations weren’t undeserved. They raced out of the gate in April with a 15-8 record for the month, winning six of their… Continue reading
The 2010-2011 NBA season tips off with 3 marquee matchups, with the much anticipated matchup between the new look Miami Heat facing off against the re-loaded Boston Celtics. The Heat debut the “Big 3” of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh tonight after a summer of in depth discussions between basketball experts everywhere. They face a tough opponent right off the bat in the Eastern Conference Champion Boston Celtics along with their own big 3 but; also the additions of Jermaine O’Neal, Shaquille O’Neal, Delonte West, and a better, more focused Rajon Rondo.
Also facing off tonight will… Continue reading
At the beginning of the season you would have been called crazy for saying the San Francisco Giants would be playing against the Texas Rangers in the 2010 World Series. Both teams were sought after to be either in the cellar of the West or just barely get an appearance in the first round. The Rangers, finally getting a pitching staff to accompany the highly talented batting line up, and a San Francisco roster missing the name Barry, (Bonds and Zito) with a bunch of vets and a young pitching core that can be argued as one of the best.… Continue reading
The Colts were able to knock off the last undefeated team in the NFL 19-12. The Jay Cutler-less Bears got back to basics as Forte and Defense beat the Panthers 23-6. Detroit pounded St. Louis 44-6 in the Gateway City. Jacksonville defeated Buffalo 36-26 in a battle of teams with low expectations. The G-Men dominated for the second game in a row, beating Houston 34-10. Baltimore continued its impressive play, handing Denver a 31-17 loss. Atlanta came back with two unanswered touchdowns to defeat Cleveland 20-10. Tennessee beat Dallas in a high-scoring affair at new Cowboys Stadium, 34-27.
There was… Continue reading
