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.

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...

Winning is not free (throw)

It does not have to be pretty. But the team that made the “Survive and Advance” moniker famous failed to do that. NC State had an eight-point lead with about two minutes left and proceeded to miss free throw after free throw, leaving the door open for Saint Louis. The Billikens took advantage. Then in the overtime period, the Wolfpack’s best player drew an and-1 after a steal...

Saint Louis Billikens Struggling Mightily Heading Into NCAA Tournament

Less than a month ago, the Saint Louis Billikens were ranked among the top 10 teams in the country. But heading into the NCAA Tournament, Saint Louis is 1-4 in their last 5 games.

Atlantic 10 keeps right on winning after defections

NEW YORK -- The Atlantic 10 Conference lost some big-name programs and keeps right on winning. The A-10 is in position to possibly send a league-record six teams to the NCAA tournament. It could wind up with more bids than the ACC, SEC or Big East -- the conference that poached Butler and Xavier after last season. Temple also departed for the American Athletic Conference and Charlotte...

ST.

So it makes sense that there were awards aplenty for the Billikens on Tuesday. The most decorated Billiken, of course, was senior guard Jordair Jett. A four-time recipient of...

ST. LOUIS -- Their leading scorer spent the night in foul trouble and finished with only four points. Their best player missed two drives down the stretch that he hasn't been missing all season.
