Saluki Basketball Hall of Fame coach Bruce Weber will highlight the Saluki Tip-Off Dinner next month at Kokopelli Golf Club.

During his five seasons at SIU, Weber’s teams compiled a 103-54 record, advanced to two NCAA Tournaments, including a Sweet 16 appearance, plus an NIT appearance.

The Salukis beat five BCS opponents during Weber’s stay and climbed as high as No. 22 in the national rankings. The program he built was sustained by his successors, Matt Painter and Chris Lowery, who led Southern to four more NCAA Tournament appearances.

The tipoff dinner is set to begin at 6 p.m. on October 6 with a cocktail hour before dinner at 7. The night will include a silent auction as well as a raffle. All the proceeds will benefit Saluki Basketball.

For more information, contact Assistant AD of Ticketing/Development Bryce Williams at 618-453-1803.
