"I was proud of our guys for finding a way to win tonight," SIUE Head Coach Lennox Forrester said. "The last three games we played where it came down the stretch, we didn't do a great job finishing the game off.  Tonight we did a much better job of finishing and winning the game."

Christian Salecich's career-high 16 points and 15 total points from Nunn helped the Cougars win a game of runs, which featured seven lead changes and three ties.

Salecich capped his career night with a dunk to extend the Cougars' lead to six (52-46). He then sank a pair of free throws with eight seconds left for the final margin. Salecich scored 14 of his 16 points after halftime. Nunn was was 5 for 5 from the field, including 4 for 4 from three-point range.

"We had some guys who made plays down the stretch for us to win tonight," Forrester added.  "It wasn't pretty, but we're still learning as a team.  Our team is growing, and we just have to keep fighting and keep grinding these wins out."
