  1. Cory came to SLU as a 17 year old - I suspect he was way below the average age of a D-1 freshman - that he is playing for $ after averaging 3 points during his SLU career says it all.
  2. Years ago when I had 2 tickets so I could take a friend to spread Billiken mania. I put one up on this board & he claimed it. We enjoyed the game & each other. He invited me to a pickup game at a grade school gym in U City where he lived - I played a few times but he didn’t renew the gym the following year. By that time we were friends & he had 1st dibs on my extra ticket when available. He complained that there were no ticket perks for the faculty in the form of seating choices or pricing. I attended his book signing program for the Hemingway opus & bought one - good read & I have since passed it on. I always ran into him while doing half time laps around the concourse. I’ll miss him.
  3. John Grisham’s latest novel is about a college basketball player from Africa who gets a scholarship at a low D1 college & leads them to the NCAA finals - good read
  4. I’ve played lot of pick up basketball with good soccer players - they have no fear of contact
  5. Class act. Thanks for the memories
  6. How about 1914-1945? Of course the word predates that.
  7. It’s a mixed bag - some skills are way highythan others - the cost is $2 unless u have silver sneakers which is free. It’s worth a try regardless of your skill set. If u love the game, come.
  8. Fridays at 10 at Sunset Hills Rec center on S Lindbergh about a half mile on the right after going under I44. Half court - usually 4/4 - relatively gentle. Ave age is around 70, but if you’re over 60, you Q. Free with Silver Sneakers, otherwise $2. At least 5 Billiken season ticket holders play. starting in July, Wednesday at 10 will be added. Pre COVID we had both days & we will again.
  9. Billiken mania started in Japan around 1908 - I’d like to buy from them
  10. My favorite gear has always been 2nd - feel the the extended torque - particularly in a sports car.
  11. You don’t remember the 3 he drilled in tempo?
  12. When I see a PE master’s thesis here, I just skip it. Give me facts & I’ll form my own opinions. Not to say I won’t venture one from time to time
  13. Yes - why I moved back to SL
  14. Swamp east MO grad here - never equate Sikeston with Cape Girardeau - fighting words for sure.
  15. Buster Brown for me thru grade school
  16. I think Jacobs never recovered from COVID. When he came the MS game, he actually lost his legs on a drive where no one touched him . I welcome him back next year, hopefully fully recovered.
  17. Cuonzo’s losing a lot but the new transfer rules are made to order for him. He certainly can sell.
  18. We want McKissic - get Erwin on the phone
