Saint Louis basketball bus driver goes rogue, gets stopped by cops

Sports involve plenty of travel, often at least partially on a team bus, but it’s rare for the bus driver to become the story. That’s what happened to the Saint Louis Billikens Wednesday, though. They lost 70-55 to St. Bonaventure Wednesday, and then found out their bus driver took off without them. That initially prevented them from getting to the airport, and was with plenty...

SLU's offense runs dry in double-digit loss at Duquesne

A cold-shooting second half cost the Saint Louis Billikens in a 79-66 loss at Duquesne on Wednesday night. The Billikens (11-17, 3-12) missed their first nine 3-point attemps and shot just 12 for 30 after the intermission to thwart their chance for a comeback. The game actually turned in the final two minutes of the first half, however. Down by 13 early, SLU stormed back to take...

Baby steps: Young Billikens' win over La Salle shows growth

ST. LOUIS -- Jim Crews doesn't need to look at the Atlantic 10 Conference standings to see the difference between the Saint Louis Billikens of last season and this season. All he has to do is watch some video. Last week, for example, while preparing for Sunday's game against La Salle, Crews checked out last year's game against the Explorers, and was impressed by the savvy of his...

Scoring drought plagues Billikens in loss to VCU

Yacoubou leads by example in SLU's OT victory over Saint Joseph's

ST. LOUIS -- For the first time this season, the Saint Louis Billikens started four freshmen. And for one of the few times, they played stretches with five freshmen. But the biggest difference-maker in the Billikens' 68-61 overtime victory over Saint Joseph's on Tuesday night was one of their old men. Relatively speaking, of course. Ash Yacoubou is a junior but is playing his first...

Young Billikens gathering momentum, but can't catch a break in narrow defeat

ST. LOUIS -- To lose eight of nine games requires the ball to do a lot of bouncing in favor of the other guys. Just ask the Saint Louis Billikens.

Billikens battle can't pull off upset at George Washington

Take away a 2 1/2-minute stretch of the second half and the Saint Louis Billikens would have scored a major upset at George Washington on Tuesday night. Of course, that's no more possible than bringing back last year's starting lineup of seniors. So the Billikens had to settle for a strong and encouraging effort in a 75-72 loss to the Colonials. SLU played as well as it has all season...
