Billikens' regular-season woes come back to haunt them in Louisville loss

There would be no dramatic comeback for the Saint Louis this time. The Billikens overcame a rough start against fourth-seeded Louisville and led briefly with 14:15 remaining, but the reigning national champion Cardinals were too much for SLU down the stretch and pulled away for a 66-51 victory in Orlando to advance to the Sweet 16. "We didn't play particularly well today...

Billikens have been focusing on the details in practices following losses

ST. LOUIS -- These past few days have been a time for reflection for the Saint Louis University basketball team.

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...
