  1. http://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns/bryan-burwell/upon-further-review-burwell-slu-s-may-on-new-big/html_2420cb4c-90bb-5a71-b2c9-029f73ebf5e9.html Part one of a two part series. Burwell asks if they've been contacted by C-7, May dodges with standard bs about loving the A-10. Nothing new here, but good to see May getting some exposure for the program & sharing how well positioned we are to make the move.
  2. Dwayne with Frank: -Touched on how strong the A-10 is this season -Kwamain has been working really hard to get back to 100% -Cody Ellis is the "sixth starter" -Depth will pay off as the year goes on -Been doing nothing but eating, sleeping & playing basketball over break -Wasn't sure whether the 20 hour rule applied over break or not -Not sure where he wants basketball to take him, focusing on getting the Bills championships right now -Has a really smart family - sister in law school at Wash U Frank was trying to get some more out of him regarding some of the differences in offens
  3. +1 . I haven't heard anything but keep us posted - this would be a great get!
  4. My guess - I think Manning steps up as that inside presence and Barnett fills that 9th spot during non-conference, ultimately losing his minutes to Carter. I'm not sure how ready he'll be to play at this level, but I think Drew might actually have a better chance to see minutes than Carter. KC will come in behind KM JJ MM and probably JB. From what I've heard about JD, it seems like he could be that athletic 3 type we've been lacking.
  5. I wonder why it happened now - JR's teams have been abysmal for a while now. I think he only had one winning season, 09-10. I'd be shocked if Blossom was interested but would love to get him. He's a great coach. Laughlin is a basketball guy so I'm hopeful he will bring in someone in who knows how to run a program. If I was a coach I'd love to have those facilities.
  6. Interesting tid bits: There have been rumblings of another team contemplating leaving the A-10. He likes 14 more than 15 for scheduling. He praised the turnout at the 76 Classic. 400-500 strong In response to a question about his commitment long-term, RM said he spent at least $45,000 personally this year between Canada and coaches salaries. He also convinced another friend, not Chaifetz, of his to donate another $45,000. "Don't forgot, our team returns 7 of our top 9 and 6 of our top 7 next year. We're in a really good situation right now." Freshman in the program will be meeting and g
  7. Georgetown, Baylor & UNLV scare me but the Bills can play with any of those clowns on a neutral court.
  8. Let's hope we're the 6 playing an 11. If we take care of business the rest of the season there is no reason we can't get at least a 6. While 11 might be better than 7-10, let's win our last 5 and get to the finals of the A-10 tournament and hope for that 5 or 6.
  9. This is rush week for all the fraternities on campus. I know of quite a few of the more enthusiastic greek fans couldn't make it out due to formal rush events last night. We'll be there early Saturday - let's get rowdy.
  10. I've heard he's struggling in practice from one of the walk-ons. I think Barnett will fill Cassity's role next season.
  11. PREBILliken - I like what you did there. Get up here for a game soon, brother.
  12. Why are all these senior citizens in the student section? Dozens of students are sol on seats right now.
  13. Checked the box score from the Proviso v. Belleville East game - Carter and Illinois bound Malcolm Hill led the way with 24 each, with Carter's Proviso team winning 79-61. It's really exciting to see one of our guys go up against big time talent and do well.
  14. Grad asst. Tanner Bronson mentioned SLU can't be in the St. Louis regional because we are the host school. I couldn't find the rule on NCAA's site, but he seemed confident that we would automatically be in a different region.
  15. The opportunity was purchased in an auction and gifted to me and my brother as an early Christmas gift.
  16. I was fortunate enough to attend the tail end of practice this afternoon with my brother and two older boosters. I was excited at first when Tom Keith walked us in and dropped a, "we can't be held responsible for any language you might hear in there today" disclaimer. However, Rick noticed he had an audience and seemed to tone it down when we got in there. They were running some very hard defensive drills when we walked in and switched to running through offensive sets without defense shortly thereafter. BC, KC & CE were all absent with finals apparently so It was tough to take that much a
  17. At the St. Ambrose game on Saturday I noticed a promotion for a $35 package including bus ride to Methdale & a ticket for the game on Tuesday against Southern Illinois. Does anyone have more information on this? I've checked the athletics site and the facebook and twitter pages and haven't found anything. I'd like to go see kids play and it is tough to pass up on a cheap chance to see the Bills play on the road.
