Listener of the Streets (6/7)

  1. Thanks for the heads up - just got 35:1 on Fan Duel. The winnings should finance my trip to the NCAA!
  2. Anybody hear if they are going to stream the open practice tomorrow night? I can't find anything about it online, but remember they announced streaming the last pre-season event at the last minute.
  3. Oh man, that is awful news. My thoughts and prayers will be with the Stuen and Ford families. The young man was just getting his life started and already had lots of success. This is shocking.
  4. I don't get too wrapped up in losing a recruit, but this one stings. Something obviously happened in the past 3 or 4 weeks. Memphis is a $hit hole and the campus is pretty much a reflection of the city. I get playing for an NBA'er is cool, but they don't really have a big history of success as head coach's. 10-8 in CUSA last year - here's hoping they continue in mediocracy and we blow them out next year, with this kid watching from the bench.
  5. Oh man - i'm shocked. I don't post much anymore, but this one hit harder than most. He was at SLU when i was - we're basically the same age. It was him and those teams that really got me into SLU basketball. RIP Justin - a great Billiken.
  6. I agree that those you named are very good, if not better. But from a pure PG perspective, I really like Yuri. All those guys can and do play the 2. Yuri never will. Maybe I'm a purist but I still say he is the best pure pg I have seen here.
  7. In my 20 years of closely following the Bills, Collins is the best point I have seen put on a uniform. Not saying we haven't had great players who played the point....but Yuri, IMO, is the best true point guard we have seen. Everybody can improve themselves, but the tone of a few seem to be that he is serviceable until he improves "X"....when it should be he is freaking awesome and if he improves "X" then we have a top 10 PG. He has made everybody around him better. Dare I say it, but even Jordan Goodwin has become a better PG watching Yuri play. Some of those passes by JGood yesterday were non-existent the first 2+ years.
  8. While I think the shot was OK, I don't think that is what Ford wanted and it may hurt Weaver's chances of minutes. You could see Ford shake his head when Weaver took it. Probably best to work the clock a little more and let one of the Freshman/Walkons get a shot.
  9. I didn't see this posted elsewhere and thought it would be appropriate here. Nice article on French. I had never heard this before... "Pushing French throughout his robust career at SLU has been junior guard Jordan Goodwin. The pair were looking at SLU and played each other in a high school game. After the game French told Goodwin about Saint Louis saying, “if you go I’ll go.”" http://archcity.media/2019/11/29/pardon-my-french-but-get-blocked/
  10. “I was very honored a big time school like Saint Louis believes in me,” he said. “I’m a player who likes to win and the school is a winning program.” Never thought I'd see the day a recruit called us a "big time school" and "a winning program". Times are changing in Billiken land!
  11. I hate to start a new topic for this but wasn't sure where it may fit in. Does anybody have a link, file, etc of our band playing "When the Saints go Marching In"? I feel like there was one circling about a decade ago but I can't find it for the life of me.
  12. Ok, thanks for the update. I'll check out the arena site for tix. Hoping to make it with the wife and a few of the kids...
  13. slu72 - did you hear anything back? I'm considering make the trip down to Birmingham as well. Looks like there are plenty of Hilton properties to blow my points on...
  14. For those out of town, you can listen here. I downloaded the app. https://www.kshe95.com/
