Men’s basketball post-season celebration is Tuesday

The men’s basketball team will hold a postseason celebration at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 25, in the SIU Arena. There is no admission and the event is open to the public. 

Head coach Barry Hinson, Chancellor Rita Cheng and Director of Athletics Mario Moccia will speak, and awards will be presented to team members.  Fans will then have the opportunity to meet the players and coaching staff, take photos and get autographs. Hot dogs, sodas and popcorn will be available at the concession stand for $1 apiece. 

This will also be the first opportunity fans will have to buy season tickets for next year.  Available seats will be for sale Tuesday night.  The Salukis finished 14-19 overall, 9-9 in the Missouri Valley Conference, marking their highest finish in six years.  The team also advanced to the MVC Tournament semifinals for the first time since 2008.
