"Joining the Full-Court Club builds our program a competitive edge over like-sized institutions, and this support is essential to our success," said SIUE men's basketball Head Coach Brian Barone.

Both Full-Court Clubs have five membership levels with a variety of benefits, including ticket and hospitality opportunities, team gear, travel to select road games, postseason ticket priority, pregame scouting reports, and access to SIUE basketball coaching staffs.

"We chose SIUE because of the people and their desire to transform the lives of our program's student-athletes in preparing for bright futures. This club provides the needed platform for growth, and in support of our collective success, thank you for being part of the team."
