My article on a huge Southern Illinois basketball upset of the Wichita State Shockers. Senior T.J. Lindsay scored a team high 14 points coming off the bench. “We’re not in the game if T.J. doesn’t hit those three at the end of the first half,” said SIU coach Barry Hinson. The energy and excitement in the SIU Arena was intense and the game had the feel of a playoff game.

This is a story I did on Jeff Early who had an interesting path to the collegiate basketball ranks. He was the leading rebounder for players under 6-foot-1 as a senior on the Southern Illinois Men’s basketball team. As a junior college transfer, Early had proven himself by leading his team to the national tournament. He hasn’t disappointed in Division-I basketball either.
