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...

Billikens finally end up on right side of a close win

ST. LOUIS -- Putting the unpredictability of the Atlantic 10 Conference on display, the last-place Saint Louis Billikens turned back the previously-surging La Salle Explorers 68-64 in overtime on Sunday afternoon. The Billikens (11-16, 3-11) had lost four straight while the Explorers (15-12, 7-7) had won five of seven, including an impresive victory at conference front-runner VCU...

Scoring drought plagues Billikens in loss to VCU

This time, the VCU Rams didn't need any last-second heroics to beat the Saint Louis Billikens. This time, the Rams' pressure defense stifled SLU all night and the Billikens fell 74-54 Tuesday night in Richmond, Virginia. The loss gave SLU its third four-game losing streak in its past 14 games, while victorious VCU secured its ninth straight 20-win season. The Billikens played the...

If tough love is what the Billikens need, Crews appears willing and able to provide it

ST. LOUIS -- Throughout this trying season for the Saint Louis Billikens, coach Jim Crews has maintained a public persona as cool as an empty metal chair that has not been tossed. He has talked about the importance of encouraging his young players rather than yelling at them, an approach you might not expect from someone who played and coached for Bobby Knight. Crews also has said...

Billikens need chance to regroup after another disappointing finish

ST. LOUIS -- Once again, the Saint Louis Billikens looked like they might knock off one of the Atlantic 10 Conference's top teams. Once again, the Billikens fell short. Dayton 51, SLU 44. The Billikens went up 44-41 Tuesday night on a Mike Crawford 3-pointer with 4:01 left but those would be their final points. They committed three turnovers and missed their final four shots as Dayton...

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. They lost for the ninth time since New Year's Eve on Saturday afternoon, this time 60-56 to the Massachusetts Minutemen in an Atlantic 10 Conference game at Chaifetz Arena. It was really closer than that, too. With 18 seconds left, the...

SLU does everything right except get the win against No. 16 VCU

ST. LOUIS -- The Saint Louis Billikens did virtually everything but win Friday night at Chaifetz Arena. The young Billikens played even with the far more experienced and 16th-ranked Virginia Commonwealth Rams until the final play when they allowed the game's leading scorer, Treveon Graham, to dribble the length of the court for a not-contested-enough layup that proved the difference...

SLU caps 100th-year anniversary party with offensive fireworks

ST. LOUIS -- On a night the Saint Louis Billikens celebrated the 100th-year anniversary of their first game, they had a performance for the ages. Their 78-69 victory over Duquesne at Chaifetz Arena Wednesday night was notable mostly because it gave SLU its first Atlantic 10 Conference victory after three losses, the most recent a 35-point beatdown at Davidson on Saturday. But what...

SLU's Yarbrough already is good, even if he has 'no clue' what that entails

ST. LOUIS -- As Milik Yabrough emerges as the main man for the Saint Louis Billikens, his coach is being asked more and more about his star freshman. SLU coach Jim Crews' response tends to include the same assessment. "There's a lot of things I like about Milik when you're talking basketball," Crews says. "I've told him three or four times, 'Milik, you're a really good kid and I...

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...

Coming off a 12-point home loss in their Atlantic 10 opener, the Billikens will hit the road for games Tuesday and Saturday nights. They will be visiting two of the hottest teams in the conference, too, in George Washington and Davidson. The Colonials (11-3), whom the Billikens face Tuesday...

ST. LOUIS -- The biggest challenge of the season awaits the Saint Louis Billikens Wednesday afternoon at Chaifetz Arena (1 p.m., Fox Sports Midwest). Literally, that is.

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

ST.

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...
