  1. I didn't see anything on the board yet, so I thought I'd post the news of Mike's recent passing. His funeral is this Saturday. Really nice guy. We knew him through his daughter and SLU softball. Condolences to his entire family.
  2. A few more post-game celebration photos. And during halftime, they had a 3 point shooting contest. Three guys sitting next to us competed as a team - and won! One of the guys was shooting like Jimmerson and made almost all of his shots. I talked to them when they got back to their seats and one was a '17 SLU alum and the other 2 went to WashU (both played basketball at WashU so that explains the shooting ability). They work for a company with an office in Tempe, so they were able to plan a business trip around the game. Sweet! (My apologies to the SLU alum - I didn't get you in the pict
  3. Great game yesterday! A lot more SLU fans than I expected. I'd estimate at least 60-70 (if not a few more) fans cheering for SLU. I've posted a few pictures that show the overall crowd size (small) as well as the SLU fans behind the bench. There were a few in the section directly across the court, but you'll see mostly red shirts over there - Dayton fans. (A Dayton guy came up to us outside and said he was rooting for SLU, but only for that one game.) We spoke briefly to Chris May and a little longer to Janet Oberle. My daughter recognized a SLU baseball player who was a year behind her
  4. I will, but after the game. An alum in Scottsdale held a reception at their home tonight - Chris May was the featured guest (we were unable to attend). So there should be a few more SLU fans at the game. Glad to see it will be streamed. Look for our little cheering section!
  5. Is anyone going to the game? I live in Tempe so I'll be there. Daughter is an alum & we're excited to be able to see the team. Even when she was at SLU, we never got to a basketball game. She played softball, and their home season never seemed to overlap with the basketball schedule. Go Bills!

  7. That's OK. I still like the old logo better. I'm probably alone at this point, but 'Ive just never like the new mascot or lettering. Getting old, I guess.
  8. I can get video on both A10 site & the free site from the first page - but no audio. Any suggestions? Edit - NM - sound just popped on - radio feed

  12. Quality, of course. But the way the reflection makes a perfect face is kinda spooky.....
  13. Congrats again to the women's BB team for a great season. Just one question, though - what's up with that A10 trophy? Is that the Billiken inside it or some other evil (but apparently happy) creature???
  14. Heartbreaker!!!!! GREAT season, ladies!!!!! Be proud!!
  15. Tough loss. But congrats on a GREAT season, ladies!!

  17. Happened to see this today. Page translated by Google - sorry if it's not the best. Here's the original link if you have a different translator - http://elvocero.com/piratas-firman-a-conklin/ Pirates sign ConklinThe Australian striker played last season with the Santurce Crabbers By José Bartolomei, the spokesman -01/13/20165:09 pm Quebradillas Pirates announced the signing of Australia striker Brian Conklin as the first player concerned for the 2016 season of the National Superior Basketball (BSN).

  19. After reading the article on JJ, I was curious as to why BC left the team. I hadn't seen this thread until now. This is what Wiki has to say about it: 2015–16 seasonOn July 15, 2015, Conklin re-signed with the Townsville Crocodiles for the 2015–16 NBL season.[15] On November 4, 2015, Conklin was involved in an ugly on-court incident involving Perth Wildcats guard Damian Martin, where during the fourth quarter of the Crocodiles' 89–77 win over the Wildcats, Conklin's errant elbow collided with Martin's jaw, breaking it.[16] Two days later, Australian basketball legend, Andrew Gaze, called ou
  20. Not to beat a dead horse, and I know it's too late for anything to be done about it, but this is just one of the reasons I don't like the new "look" of SLU athletics - I saw this and wondered WTH are "Bert's Herophones" and "Protocol Oronium"? While the new Billiken isn't too awful, I really dislike the new font. It just has no class, IMO. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CVWjO-CUAAALfHU.jpg:large
  21. I don't like the new font at all. I wonder if they just went with what the marketing firm came up with, or did they have focus groups that gave them feedback? I can only imagine what the new Billiken will look like.....

  23. Congrats also to Colton Frabisilio (23rd round pick 699) & Jackson Wark. ST. LOUIS - Saint Louis had a pair of baseball players selected in the 2015 MLB Draft on June 10. Junior catcher Jake Henson and senior catcher/outfielder Colton Frabasilio were the Saint Louis selections. This marks the second consecutive season in which the Billikens have had two draft selections, and the fourth time SLU has had multiple picks under Darin Hendrickson. Henson was drafted by the Dodgers in the 21st round (pick 642). He was SLU's top power hitter in 2015. He hit .327 with a .531 slugging percentage a
