    Have been curious about the '78 Roosevelt game and finally found the info on it. It was the lidlifter for the year and the Bills smacked 'em around pretty good, winning 130-61. That was kind of rough season for the Bills as they went 10-17 with a number of close losses against good teams. Believe it or not, the Roosevelt U. Lakers hoop team still exists playing in the NAIA.

    We opened up against Roosevelt 2 or 3 years in a row . They all were blowouts. Gave us fans a false sense of our ability.

    Yuri had his way with Gilyard last year as a freshman. Gilyard went 1-7 with 5 TOs last year. Golden has put up some good games against the Bills and will have to be accounted for.

    SLU looks superior right now, but we know how things change. 

    Small window but I think Yuri's defense has been very good this year. Excellent ball pressure.

    Mizzou is definitely better, i am not yet convinced they are top five. the illinois game might prove me wrong.

    I actually think they are going to be pretty good. When you have that many seniors starting you should be good. They shoot free throws except for Tillman extremely well. We should know on Saturday.

    I know MANY people, who got antibody tests, and came back positive. So they had the virus and never even knew it. This virus is not a big deal to a bunch of athletes who monitor everything about their bodies and health. If coaches are older/vulnerable then maybe they need to quarantine. But the teams should be able to practice and play even if it is with an assistant coach etc. This shutting down the whole team because of 1 positive test is insane. 

    I am not trying to make a point advocating shutting down but I don't think French would say it's no big deal.

    The billikens are playing fantastic,  but this is one of the fundamentally  most bankrupt team I've ever seen the billikens play.   I bet they wouldn't be 500 in a D3 conference.   They are bad.

    I can remember the good old days against Roosevelt when we scored 130.

    Agree with you on Kent and was thinking the same thing about Kennedy. She needs better shot selection. She seems to want to shoot the 3 pretty quickly. we don't need her taking 5 more 3's than Kent. However, it was her 1st D1 game, so imo some benefit of the doubt is in order. 

    I like the way Martinez seems to have a real grasp on the way the offense should run, she seems to have a stabilizing effect. However her shot is horrible and she doesn't attack and score nor does she have a lot of assists, so I tend to agree with you. 

    Martinez may be the worst shooting college player I have ever seen. Besides that she is a pretty good player.

    Tough crowd here. Bill Walton is an enjoyable, easy-going guy who delights with his constant randomness. Nobody else brings Dickie V's genuine energy and love for the game, plus he is a truly generous and charitable man. Hate the haters, not the media guys who bring positivity.  

    Many years ago SLU had a fundraising dinner with Dickie V being the keynote speaker. He gave a great motivational talk. Really Good. That said I am tired of his schtick.

    I think we also need to give credit to TF and the staff.  they had faith in JP and that faith had to translate into the confidence JP needed to become the shooter he is now.  I think this is one of the hidden aspects of coaching that they don't get enough credit for. 

    JP led juco nation in scoring. He obviously was always a scorer. Ford and staff gets credit for transferring that ability to his current level in only one semester.

    I said it last year. He's the best player on the team. He's the only one with NBA potential. Has to learn to defend better though.

    I am not sure I would say he was the overall best player but he certainly has the most NBA potential. And I would have said that last year.
