JORDAIR JETT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Billikens pull of the improbable with comeback win over NC State

The Saint Louis Billikens did not lead in the final 35 minutes of regulation. They trailed by 16 with 8:13 left. For the night, they missed 14 of their 26 free throws. And they won. Yes, their 83-80 overtime victory over North Carolina State in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday night was that unlikely. March Madness, indeed. Who else, but Jett? Billikens Senior guard Jordair Jett was...

LOUIS -- A late-season, three-game swoon notwithstanding, Saint Louis University was the class of the Atlantic 10 Conference this season, winning its second consecutive regular-season league championship.

VCU-Saint Louis Preview

Billikens jet away with 16th win in a row

About 15 minutes after 13th-ranked St. Louis University’s dramatic, last-second win over La Salle on Saturday, SLU guard Jordair Jett stood in a hallway just off the court at Tom Gola Arena when La Salle coach John Giannini walked past. Giannini walked over and shook Jett’s hand. “Big time,” Giannini told him. Jett did it again on Saturday. He scored 25 points, including...

No. 19 Saint Louis whips Richmond 77-57

Guard Jordair Jett had 21 points and a career-best 10 rebounds and No. 19 Saint Louis made quick work of Richmond, leading by 24 in the first half of a 77-57 rout on Wednesday night. The Billikens' 13th straight victory was one of their most lopsided, too.
