ST. LOUIS -- The Saint Louis Billikens are losing their entire starting lineup that won a second straight Atlantic 10 championship this season, but expectations for next year will remain the same. "What we believe in is a championship attitude, a championship mentality, being a gentleman, doing things with class," coach Jim Crews said Wednesday afternoon, five days after...

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.

Rob Loe quietly keeps No. 10 SLU on course

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...

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...

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...

Saint Louis Billikens: Will Dwayne Evans play like an All-American candidate in 2013-14?

Dwayne Evans entered the 2012-2013 season with a chance to make major impact for the Saint Louis Billikens. He did just that.

Referee vs. Radio Announcer in VCU vs. St. Louis Game (Video)

#24 VCU got smoked on Tuesday night by Saint Louis 76-62.  Being a VCU fan I wasn't too happy seeing this massacre go down.  This video made me a little happier though.  Check out Saint Louis Billikens radio announcer Bob Ramsey saying that referee Bo Borowski just called a "cheap foul."  Bo overheard his comments and got in Ramsey's face while on air, and gave...

Mitchell making all the difference for Billikens

Saint Louis paid the price last season when it was forced to go with freshmen and sophomores in key roles. The Billikens finished with a 12-19 record and a quick one-and-done appearance against Rhode Island in the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament. They are still young, but having Kwamain Mitchell back on the floor has given them a proven leader. The junior was suspended just...
