    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Southern Illinois University men's and women's basketball teams will host exhibition games at SIU Arena on Saturday. The men play Harris-Stowe at 7:05 p.m., while the women face Lindenwood at 2:05 p.m.

    The Saluki men will make their season debut for second-year head coach Barry Hinson. SIU returns its top player from last year -- preseason All-Conference guard Desmar Jackson, along with starting guard Anthony Beane and reserves Davante Drinkard, Jalen Pendleton and Colby Long. Nine new players will see their first action in a Saluki uniform.

    Harris-Stowe finished with a 6-25 record last year and is a member of the American Midwest Conference and the NAIA. The St. Louis-based school has an enrollment of 1,163.

    The Saluki women are coming off a 67-60 exhibition victory over Maryville last week. Mercedes Griffin (10 points, three steals), Rishonda Napier (10 points, four rebounds, three steals) and Dyana Pierre (10 points, 12 rebounds) all scored in double figures for Southern. Preseason All-MVC honoree Cartaesha Macklin was hindered by early foul trouble, scoring nine points in 23 minutes. In 2012, Macklin led the Salukis and was second in the MVC in scoring at 15.0 points per game.

     

     

    Lindenwood, in its first year as a member of NCAA Division II, will play its first game of the exhibition season. The Lady Lions are coming off a 4-22 record in 2013, including a 1-17 mark in the Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association.
