Cousin starts exhibition game (Basketball)

Anthony Cousins

A part-time starter last season, the point guard job appears to be Anthony Cousin’s to lose.

The 5-foot-11 junior started last night’s exhibition for Illinois State University in a 76-68 loss to the Montreal All-Stars in Canada.

Cousin, of South High fame, helped the Redbirds build a 36-32 lead at halftime. Then the reserves played most of the second half.

Illinois State returned to the court tonight with another friendly against Carleton, the 2011 Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) champion.
