  1. Virginia Tech game for Goodwin and French's Freshman season?
  2. Second smallest? The attendance last night was higher than every game last year!
  3. Seems too optimistic. I agree we have a talented experienced point guard (but I am not excited about our back-up options at PG). I hope we are stacked with shooters, but based on the 3 point percentage from both exhibition games, I'm skeptical. We have 2 quality bigs but they are prone to foul trouble. I think it will be very difficult to get to 22 wins this year... I sure hope I am wrong...
  4. Point #4... I agree... Jones was just flat out bad... hopefully it was just one game...
  5. SLU's bigs will be in foul trouble alot this year. This could be a major problem...
  6. Points for - 89.5 (O) Points against - 64.5 (O) Players used - 10.5 (O) Players receiving >28 minutes - 2.5 (U) Yuri assists - 9.5 (U) Nesbitt points - 10.5 (O) Perkins points - 14.5 (O) Players w/ >9.5 rebounds - 0.5 (U) Team FT% - 78.5% (U) Team 3FG% - 34.5% (U)
  7. I'm really bummed because my 10 month old will likely be too old by the time of the race.... (I think it is late in the conference season if I remember correctly.) My wife and I will have to plan better for our second child.
  8. But we all love Fordham because they bring the NY market to the A10.
  9. Top drawer soccer ranks SLU #6 this week: https://www.topdrawersoccer.com/college-soccer-national-rankings/men
  10. Kyle Engstler still has that post on his twitter feed as the first post, so I'm guessing he is still planning to walk on at SLU. You can check his twitter: @kyle_engstler Also, he does appear to be enrolled at SLU per SLU people finder: (Search for Kyle Engstler on this website: https://ws.slu.edu/peoplefinder/index.php )
  11. Is Moberly now SLU's minor league team?
  12. The new recruit is.... Sincere Parker! Welcome!
  13. JORDAN NESBITT: He will easily be way better here than his limited mid-season role at Memphis. (Also, just transferring from Memphis to SLU is a step up )
  14. Is Jones also a legitimate ball handler? He averaged 6 assists per the article. It is good to have so many options at the point!
  15. College sports madness ranks us 69. https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/19762 Saint Louis Billikens 2021-2022 Overall Rank: #69 Conference Rank: #4 A-10 Saint Louis Team Page Saint Louis has been a very good team over the last three years. Last year included an entire month of cancelled contests and it was tough for the Billikens to regain their form through a start and stop season. Still, Coach Travis Ford’s team went 14-6 during the regular season and earned a spot in the NIT. That was not the tournament SLU was aiming for but, all things considered, it was not a terrible way to end the campaign. 2020-21 Record: 14-7, 6-4 2020-21 Postseason: NIT Coach: Travis Ford Coach Record: 89-65 at Saint Louis, 434-322 overall Key Departed Players: Jordan Goodwin, Guard, 14.5 ppg Hasahn French, Forward, 9.2 ppg Demarius Jacobs, Guard, 4.9 ppg Jimmy Bell Jr, Forward, 1.9 ppg Key Returning Players: Javonte Perkins, Senior, Guard/Forward, 17.1 ppg Gibson Jimerson, Freshman, Guard, 7.8 ppg Marten Linssen, Junior, Forward, 5.5 ppg Fred Thatch Jr, Sophomore, Guard, 5.4 ppg Yuri Collins, Sophomore, Guard, 5.1 ppg Terrence Hargrove Jr, Sophomore, Forward, 4.2 ppg Markhi Strickland, Freshman, Guard/Forward, 2.6 ppg Andre Lorentsson, Freshman, Forward, 0.5 ppg Key New Players: Kyle Engstler, Freshman, Guard/Forward DeAndre Jones, Senior, Guard, Transfer from Central Arkansas Jordan Nesbitt, Freshman, Guard, Transfer from Memphis Francis Okoro, Junior, Forward, Transfer from Oregon Lassina Traore, Freshman, Forward Rashad Williams, Junior, Guard, Transfer from Oakland Projection: Losing the dynamic Jordan Goodwin could keep the Billikens at the NIT level. Goodwin averaged 14.5 points, 10.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.0 steals last year. He is now with the Washington Wizards. Forward Hasahn French is also playing professionally after tallying 9.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 blocks in 2020-2021. Saint Louis does have a superstar returning though. Javonte Perkins led the team with 17.1 points per game and knocked down a team high 38 three-pointers. At least to start the season, Perkins will be asked to cover even more scoring in 2021-2022. Gibson Jimerson, Yuri Collins and Fred Thatch Jr. are all young guards with a lot of potential. Jimerson is the shooter of the bunch and Collins averaged an impressive 6.1 assists per game during his second season with the program. Marten Linssen and Terrence Hargrove are the most experienced returning frontcourt options and they will be joined by Oregon transfer Francis Okoro. Okoro was never much of a scorer during his time with the Ducks, but the two-year starter will help keep Saint Louis solid on the glass and block a shot or two as well. Coach Ford also picked up a couple new scorers for the backcourt. DeAndre Jones was a four-year starter at Central Arkansas and averaged 12.9 points and 6.0 assists during a great 2019-2020 season. In that same year, Rashad Williams averaged 19.5 points with Oakland.
