"It's just pretty cool," Siva said about his photo being on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated for their college basketball preview section.
Siva, sporting the Infrared jersey from last season's postseason run, is going up for a dunk in the photo. Sports Illustrated ranks U of L No. 2 in the issue.
"I thought it was pretty cool," Siva said. "I felt pretty good about it.
"It's just an honor for me to be on there."
Among the former U of L payers that have been on the cover include Darrell Griffith and Pervis Ellison, along with Herbert Crook and Terrence Williams, who were both featured with other players in a collage-type cover.
"I had never dreamed about it or thought about it," Siva said. "I just have to thank God that I was able to be on there."
