Billikens Come Back to Make Round of 32

SLU faced its biggest deficit of the season - 16 points – with 8 minutes to play. After being down 11 with 3 minutes left in the game, the Billikens went into “Hack a Wolf Pack” mode where every Billiken who played tonight then scored in regulation or overtime.

Evans and Barnett hit critical 3-pointers before each fouling out. After many missed free throws by both teams, Jett did what he does and drives the lane to tie the game. A defensive stop sent the game to overtime, which McBroom started overtime with an offensive board and layup. Loe Dunks. Lancona and McCall hit free throws. Glaze got a put back. Manning had a jumper. Together, this team put together one of the greatest comebacks in Billiken history.

Dwayne, Mike, Jordair, Rob, Jake and the Billikens advanced to the round of 32 for the THIRD straight year. They will play Louisville on Saturday at 1:45pm, and on Thursday, they made me proud to be a Billiken fan.
