In terms of progress, wins and loses only tell part of SLU's story

ST. LOUIS -- If the ball had bounced their way a couple of more times, the Saint Louis Billikens very likely would own a 9-2 record instead of the 7-4 mark they will take into Sunday afternoon's home game against Vermont (1 p.m., FOX Sports Midwest). No one expected the young Billikens to win at Wichita State or to even beat Mississippi State on a neutral court, and SLU was blown...

Crawford's career night helps Billikens hold off Texas-Pan American

ST. LOUIS -- Division I basketball is a demanding sport anytime, but especially when you're dealing with an illness. Ask sophomore Mike Crawford of the Saint Louis Billikens. Earlier in the season, he was losing weight, feeling weak and getting fatigued from a mysterious bug that he says doctors never quite figured out. He continued to play but his performance, not surprisingly,...

Missing Grandy: Absence of Glaze has 'definitely hurt' Billikens

ST. LOUIS -- Ten games into a rebuilding season, much remains unknown about the Saint Louis Billikens. Coach Jim Crews continues to rely on a 12-man rotation that he says could change from game to game. Scoring can come from virtually anyone; five players already have led the team in scoring for one or more games. And at least for now, their leading rebounder is a guard, junior Ash...

Every experience matters: Billikens drop hammer on D-II Rockhurst

ST. LOUIS -- You can say this about the 2014-15 Saint Louis Billikens: They beat Rockhurst University by more points than did last season's team. This season's freshmen-heavy Billikens blew out Rockhurst, 80-48 Tuesday night at Chaifetz Arena, a 32-point margin that was seven points greater than the 68-43 victory registered by last year's senior-laden squad. So can we conclude that...

Five stitches later: Reynolds goes into attack mode to save Billikens

ST. LOUIS -- One of the Saint Louis Billikens' many freshmen did some considerable growing up Tuesday night. To which the Billikens should say, thank goodness. Without the performance of Miles Reynolds, a 6-2 guard out of Chicago, SLU likely would have ended up losing to North Carolina A&T instead of pulling out a 57-54 victory on Tuesday night at Chaifetz Arena. Making his performance...

Among SLU's many freshmen, Davell Roby hasn't played like one

ST. LOUIS -- Not all freshmen arrive in the same state of readiness, as you learn when you watch a team that plays as many as the Saint Louis Billikens. There are those who look like they have yet to find the weight room. Marcus Bartley, for example, is a 6-foot-4 guard who could put on 25 pounds and still be thin. Bartley is a skilled enough ball-handler to handle the point, and...

On this young Billikens team, everybody plays, every game

ST. LOUIS -- Jim Crews has been coaching college basketball for 27 years and not once does he remember a team using a 12-man rotation. Until his Saint Louis Billikens this season. They've played only two games and the rotation figures to be reduced as the team evolves but so far, if you suit up for the Billikens, you better be ready to play. Twelve players have taken the court, and...

Crews leans on McBroom while he continues to feel out influx of freshmen

ST. LOUIS -- As the season goes along, the Saint Louis Billikens might not need Austin McBroom to hit a step-back 3-pointer in the closing seconds to win a game. They might not need him to score 24 points to win, either. But they needed a career game out of their 5-foot-9 junior guard to beat the Southern Illinois Salukis 62-59 on Saturday night at a sold-out Chaifetz Arena. Hopefully...

Steve Etter at the Amway Center/collegehoopsdigest.comThe Saint Louis Billikens were out to dethrone the defending champion Louisville Cardinals this afternoon in Orlando, FL but fell short.

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?

Saint Louis Billikens Struggling Mightily Heading Into NCAA Tournament

Less than a month ago, the Saint Louis Billikens were ranked among the top 10 teams in the country. But heading into the NCAA Tournament, Saint Louis is 1-4 in their last 5 games. Their lone win came against Massachusetts on a last second shot. They lost in the first round of the Atlantic 10 tournament to St. Bonaventure on a buzzer beating 3 pointer.

Billikens roll into Brooklyn looking to capture more A-10 hardware

The Saint Louis Billikens have been busy since wrapping up the regular season with a 64-62 win at Massachusetts on Sunday that secured their second straight outright Atlantic 10 Conference championship. The No. 18 Billikens (26-5 overall, 13-3 A-10) then visited the West Point campus in New York, where coach Jim Crews led Army's basketball team from 2002-2009. On Tuesday, SLU racked...

It's not lucky when the Billikens win 19 straight; they're just that good

ST. LOUIS -- Their leading scorer spent the night in foul trouble and finished with only four points. Their best player missed two drives down the stretch that he hasn't been missing all season. They were badly out-rebounded for half the game. And they had another lousy night shooting free throws. Yet the 10th-ranked Saint Louis Billikens won another close game Saturday night, 66...

When the month began, the Saint Louis Billikens were on a streak that was tied for sixth longest in the country. With a week left in the month, only undefeated Wichita State (28-0) and Stephen F. Austin (21) own longer streaks than the 10th-ranked Billikens, who have reeled off a school-record...

ST. LOUIS -- Standing 6-foot-11, Saint Louis Billikens senior center Rob Loe is difficult to miss on a basketball court. But when reasons are given for the success of the 10th-ranked Billikens this season, Loe's contributions often are overlooked. You think about Jordair Jett's driving and Dwayne Evans' scoring. You think about the Billikens' lockdown defense and the experience that...
