Yesterday afternoon, a big 6'7" sophomore Saluki had the breakout game the SIU coach and fans have been waiting for. He was the team's leading scorer and rebounder in a game in which Southern Illinois wobbled early, but clamped down in during the second half -- Shaw had key tip-ins during a 9-0 unanswered stretch, then stepped out to hit several key three-pointers to ensure the Redbirds didn't do anything like put on a late surge.
Shaw was recruited by Stanford, but ended up choosing SIU. He;s a product of the winningest high school program in history (Centralia Ill., 1,950+ wins) and apparently likes playing ISU's... his career high of 22 came against Indiana State last year.
