  1. Just accept their statements, they don't know and are running tests. The fact he wasn't at Birmingham should tell everyone it is not a little issue, in my opinion. Maybe he was kept in St. Louis for finals, but I doubt it.
  2. I just hope we don't lose Katie Shields, she's done a terrific job, and bigger schools are going to consider her.
  3. For junkies like myself, it is a steal. Best $5 a month I spend. Rewatched our FGCU game at 3:30 this morning using their search option. Picture quality is good.
  4. Totally agree with this. This will help, as if they need any assistance, big time schools. The Kansas' of the world, who are already arranging benefits for their players, will go to their alumni, supporters and vendors and "encourage" them to find ways to support their players. It' s really no different than giving an athlete a summer job, that doesn't require any work, and paying them some crazy amount of money. Once one school starts it, the others will follow suit. In the tapes catching Self at KU, he told his shoe company that he had to pay a certain player to keep up with the Kentucky, Dukes and Arizona's of the world. This will be the same.
  5. Not that I know anything, but he does plan on playing full court for 40 minutes. Could change, but that’s the plan. Heard SLU pressed 40 minutes against Loyola and wore them out. I’m guessing we’ll drop back after pressing and play a zone a fair amount. It will help protect Has. We don’t have to always press full court. He obviously likes the half court trap. A question, do I remember Correctly that the rule changed regarding the 10 second count not restarting when the ball goes out or a timeout is called? If so, more teams will press.
  6. I think the shooting will be better than Saturday showed. They practiced 3 hours Friday late afternoon. And, they are at the end of a long month. Unlike Majerus, Ford will cut back to restore their legs. By the way, they practiced again Saturday afternoon, after the women played Illinois in their closed scrimmage.
  7. Match tonight against Eastern Illinois
  8. I received miine a few days ago.
  9. I saw Coach Ford last night, and he indicated he’s just starting to think about it.
  10. That's not correct, freshman and transfers can go.
  11. Many of you may know that the annual golf tournament is on Tuesday, May 7 at St. Albans Country Club. I think a few spots are still available. It's always a fun day, with plenty of opportunities to interact with coaches and players. They all really appreciate everyone's support. If you are interested, there is a silent auction that is going on until noon on Monday. It's a great way to support Billiken athletics. Plus, there are usually some real steals on unique items. Please check it out, bid on some items and help our favorite athletic program continue to improve. The link to access the auction is below (if I did it correctly) https://www.32auctions.com/organizations/31922/auctions/64761?t=all
  12. If she’s on the JV at Clayton as a Sophmore, she has an unbelievable amount of improvement to show to be a D-I player.
  13. The Men's Banquet is this Tuesday at the Hilton by the Ballpark. Dinner at 6:00, Program at 7:00. $50.00 per person The Women's Banquet is on Sunday, April 14 @ 4:00 on Campus. $25.00 per person. Call the Athletic Department to make your reservations and for more details. Come on guys, show up. You have a great opportunity to send off this year's teams and learn about next year!!
  14. I'm told the Kirkwood transfer is their best player. (Hard to believe as good as Harbison has become) Look for her to replace Frantz's numbers. The program is definitely on the uptick. Two good recruiting classes back to back. This November is a very important signing period for them. They still struggle with athletic teams, and need help at forward.
  15. Love how engaged his mother was at the game.
  16. On the weekends, it’s to aid traveling. During the week, they are generally to accommodate away games that have elementary school students attending. I believe they’ve had 4 of them this year, plus the game they housed for grade schoolers. There were close to 8,000 st SLU.
  17. The Post, in Maplewood will host a watch party tomorrow at 2:00. Game time is at 3:00. They did this several years ago, and the crowds were very large. Hopefully, it will be a good time for everyone.
