    Could Jacobs and Thatch Jr be leaving

    You had this bombshell information and sat on it all night? Real fan my ass!

    SLU vs RI game Saturday 2/2/19

    It's going to be tough, but I think we actually match up better against Rhodey than Richmond. Bess puts the clamps on Dowtin, we have a good chance to win. Defense travels (hopefully a little bit of offense takes the trip to Kingston for us). A win here could get us back on track- time for some positive vibes on the board.

    Former Billiken in the news

    On the bad news front, Willie Reed suffered a season ending shoulder injury last week, ending what was an excellent season in the G-league. He was definitely on track for a ten day contract somewhere before season's end. You can say what you want about Willie, but it seems like he has really finally matured and the people in SLC loved him. He might be headed toward a career as a color analyst on A-10 games.

    GDT: The pretend Duke

    We re up by one at the half after pulling an o'fer from 3- we'll be fine.

    Congrats to Earl Austin Jr.

    Well deserved- Earl represents the basketball community better than anyone.

    2018-19 season

    I'll take 10-4 and talented over Jim Crews any day of the week. Do I want even more-absolutely!

    So, where do we go from here ?

    I think we need to play small for long stretches and let Goodwin and Thatch terrorize the other team's backcourt.

    GDT: Florida State, sunny place for shady people

    Sometimes, as Tony LaRussa would say, you just have to tip your cap. We really sucked today, but on the other side, if FSU plays like that every game they could win the ACC, and the tournament for that matter. They have easily double the talent of any other team we have faced or will face for the rest of the year. They defended with passion and hit a super high percentage of 3's, while we missed chippies all day ( although their tremendous length has a lot to do with that) I'm definitely tipping the cap to those dudes, and hopefully we learn from the experience.

    Fla St over the Bills by 6

    Isn't this the first game of a doubleheader? It's quite possible that the next game's fans show up in the second half and root for the Billikens, sort of like a first day NCAA set up.

    Good recruiter, bad coach?

    Obviously recruiting and game coaching are not independent of each other; this is what makes the Jimmerson signing so important (and why not having Wiley available was such a detriment last night). SIU was perfectly willing to let us chuck up wide open threes and stack the interior. With Wiley out and Bess hobbled we have no one to keep a defense honest, and that cost us last night. A lot of times one dead eye shooter makes everyone better, and we don't have that right now. This team as presently constructed is going to have more games like last night, especially on the road.

    GDT Rename them the Slukies

    I'll say one thing- KC had no problems jacking it up when he got in the game. I know it's cliche, but this had trap game written all over it from the moment we beat Butler. The Salukis have a fair amount of veteran talent, had relatively underachieved so far this year, and you know they had this one circled as a must win from the beginning of preseason. Hopefully they go out and win the Valley; I think if Hinson can't get it done with this group he'll never do it.

    Calm down, prisoner of the moment.

    Cut it out- your attempt at being cheeky fell flat and made my brain hurt.

    Tv for Florida State game

    We've had several games in the last few years that have been on fsmw alternate channel, so the blues game at the same time is no biggie. Also just get the foxsports go app and watch it on your phone.
