Sparked by two great scorers, Charlie Vaughn and Seymour Bryson. Harry Gallatin's flyin' Salukis raced to two big victories over the weekend as they pounded Indiana State, 87-64, and Western Illinois 91-86.
Saturday night, before a jam packed howling mob, the Salukis ran past the leathernecks of Western Illinois, the IIAC champs for the past seven year, Seymour Bryson, playing one of the finest games in his career, pumped in 34 points and grabbed off 18 rebounds before fouling out with 10 second remaining in the contest. This is the second time this season Southern has beaten Western Illinois, who finished last game has been forfeited to Western because Gene Velloff is ineligible.
Last Thursday Southern traveled to Indiana State to take on the usually tough squad, but the Salukis had little trouble. Charlie Vaughn, continuing his high scoring, burned the nets for 36 points before being rested with four minutes remaining in the game.
In Saturday's contest with Western, the Salukis fell behind in the early minutes of the game. Western jumped off to a quick 9-3 lead. Don Hepler, a sophomore playing his finest game, hit a jumper and Bryson hit a free throw and then pumped in two quick jump shots to give the Salukis a 10-9 lead.
Hepler Hits
Don Hepler tied the count at 21-21 with 9:45 gone and Francis Horian, also playing a very off ditable game. hit a long jumper to give Southern a 23-21 advantage at the 10 minute mark. The two squads continued to exchange buckets until Grady McCollum amazing the excited crowd with his brilliant shooting and Jack Milam combined for six straight points.
The Salukis showing much more polish on their running attack, pushed to a 45-43 hall time margin as Dick Ruggles took a fine pass from Horian on a fast break to score. The play brought the crowd to their feet in appreciation.
Attempting to stop the Salukis potent scoring attack. Western came out in the second half with a 23/one defense, but it didn't help as SIU hit.300 in the second period. With Seymour Bryson hitting almost at will, SIU moved to a 68-60 sdvantage with 10 minutes left in the game.
Charlie Vaughn hitting his season's high, pumped home 36 markers despite missing about eight minutes of the game.
With Vaughn hitting beautifully, Southern shot their way to a 20-11 count with 11 minutes gone in the first half. Vaughn had 14 out of the first 20 points, and 20 in the first half. Southern went to the locker room with a 46-27 cushion.
With 14:30 left in the game Southern held a 58-38 lead and then matched the boys from Indiana for the rest of the contest. Seymour Bryson, in direct contrast to his performance against Western Saturday night, had a very poor night. He managed to stuff only 13 points through the 10 foot high hoop.
