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...

Orlando Region: #4 Louisville 66 #5 St. Louis 51

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. The Billikens struggled and I mean struggled from 3-point land. They were 0-15 from beyond the arch.(Yes, that is not a misprint 0-15). They shot 39.6% from the floor. We those numbers you are...

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...

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...

The pick-and-pop post: Rob Loe quietly keeps No. 10 SLU on course

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...

Atlantic 10 power rankings: Billikens rise to the top

Moving the Saint Louis Billikens from second to first in these Atlantic 10 rankings was a no-brainer after Massachusetts lost at Richmond last week, with that game ending mere minutes after SLU had pulled out victory at Duquesne. Saint Louis enters this week as the only unbeaten team in A-10 play. The Billikens have won 12 straight and improved to a nation-best 7-0 in road games...

Billikens overcome occasional shooting woes with solid defense

ST. LOUIS -- The way the Saint Louis Billikens view their season, it is divided into three parts. "We have the non-conference play, we have the conference play and then we have tournament play," senior guard Jordair Jett said. The first part came to a conclusion Saturday afternoon with a convincing 75-55 victory over Yale (5-7) in front of 8,659 at Chaifetz Arena. The second part...

Jett's newfound offensive prowess paying off for the Billikens

ST. LOUIS -- Jordair Jett's dreadlocks are longer and his beard a bit fuller but otherwise, he looks the same as a senior guard as he did as a junior guard. His game has changed, though, and for that, the Saint Louis Billikens should be quite pleased. If Jett had not stepped up his game this season, the Billikens (12-2) would have at least one more loss. Without his 17 points and...

Billikens hang with No. 12 Shockers until final minutes

ST. LOUIS -- Don't worry about the way the Saint Louis Billikens are playing. While they lost to a ranked team for the second time in the past week on Sunday afternoon, this time 70-65 to No. 12 Wichita State, the Billikens again showed they have the makings of being as strong as last season's 28-7 team that reached the NCAA Tournament.
