  1. Well said...how about a banner as well for Craig Upchurch as a tribute to the incompetent buffoons who have cursed this program? Coach G had a mortal lock on a big dance bid with this stud, a guaranteed glue guy to finally pound Pete Gillen, and look what happened!
  2. These moves underscore strategic blunders seen more than once this season. Just not the Spoonhour/Majerus level of team ball. If this team can get its rebounding prowess back, anything can happen. Just frustrating because every opponent wants more Jones, less Hargrove/JNezz.
  3. What's the word on the street on JBell -- returning?
  4. Parker with 26 last night vs. nationally ranked Mineral Area; Bell with 10 points, 9 rebounds. Sam Houston just extended an offer to Bell.
  5. As a freshman, yes. His remaining years, perhaps not so much.
  6. Thames' height and all-around game should transition well to college...not the best long-distance shooter but Jimmer, Hargrove and the 6-4 Parker can take up that slack.
  7. With seconds remaining I was all set to post that Ford should be fired because even Uncle Sodaberger could beat Pitino. But now Ford is one of the greatest coaches SLU has ever had. At least until next game...
  8. Agree on the need to push as much as possible. But superior opposition with superior defenses will take you out of your game and force you to play some half court. SLU will then need to rely on its inside-outside game and ball movement to find the open shot.
  9. It was a head scratcher at the beginning of the season that an organization like SLU with a med school would have looser COVID entry guidelines to games vs. St. Louis Blues.
  10. Wasn't getting it done? Who had the most rebounds for SLU tonight?
  11. Spot on. If you're UAB, dominating the boards, you want SLU's two most athletic players with the highest ceilings on the bench -- Hargrove and Nesbitt.
  12. Sincere Parker with 20 points vs. No. 10 Mineral Area in a one-point loss. Bell with 8 points, 7 rebounds.
  13. Good info here, thank you for posting. Agree, dead even. NCAA NET rankings listed above are from last April and are not current, so they should be thrown out when compiling averages.
  14. Three parallels between this team and Spoon's best teams in the mid-1990s: 1. Good shooters 2. Unselfish 3. Can't have enough point guards. Even better this year vs. then, big men and dunks.
  15. Only one home win would normally be significant. Boise has only played two home games, however. Most concerned about SLU coming out flat due to holiday tourney hangover and Boise getting after it due to subpar previous game. SLU D must stop their ball movement and wide open 3 attempts.
  16. Parker scored 22 points vs. #11 Indian Hills, Jimmy Bell double/double 11/11 in a loss. Kramer carried SLUH on his back tonight with clutch baskets vs. Fr. Tolton, a team that won district last year and could win state this year. Tolton's freshman point guard, Aaron Rowe, has offers from SLU and Tennessee.
  17. Roll Bills this season and next -- everyone should return except for Jones and anyone not getting enough PT.
  18. Time for the team to watch JLove/Kenyon Martin highlights?
  19. Regardless of what happens in Memphis...between Yuri and the centers, this team will give A10-level competition fits.
  20. Thanks for the link. Sincere Parker leads in scoring with 19, Jimmy Bell next with 13. Moberly coach raves about Jimmy Bell getting healthier and rebounding strong. Not seeing any recap of how many rebounds.
  21. Thanks for the takeaways. Regarding point #5, Okoro fouled out 4 times in the 66 games he played with Oregon...he started two-thirds of those games and averaged 15 minutes of PT. When it comes to fouling, he's not exactly the next Tom Frericks.
  22. Agreed, and surely other criteria will be considered like, first and foremost, basketball and athletics budget, facilities, attendance, TV market size, geography/transport options, fit with new conference, U prez not being a jerk, etc. If SLU by now has a budget anywhere close to Xavier's, they could join Big East during next round of expansion. At one time that wasn't the case.
  23. Is Jeremiah Johnson related to former Billikens Justin Johnson or Jalen Johnson? Got to close the deal on this kid just to further confuse Gus.
  24. Best skywalking display from a SLU recruit since Larry Hughes in the McDonalds All-America game.
