SLU comes within a tenth of a second of beating Dayton and someone is equating Ford to Barry Odom? Ford has the 300th least experienced team out of the 353 Division I teams...for decent chunks of

We had the 13th best team in the country on the ropes with 6 seconds left despite turning the ball over, getting destroyed on back screens and of course, missing free throws.  I hope the guys understa

What’s the best way to stream this game on mobile? Due to poor planning I’ll be in the car for this one. 

Game is on ESPN2. it's likely that if you have ESPN+ you could stream it on mobile.

ESPN+ subscription doesn’t get you this game I don’t think. I think it’s gotta be a cable account.

If you have cable you will be able to watch it through the ESPN app on your phone. You’ll just need to sign in with your cable company’s credentials

Amazingly (I'm looking out my window right now, seeing nothing on the horizon), our Provost has CLOSED the university today, per an email a little while ago.  No worries, game still on of course ... But please leave extra early if you're coming to campus, and remember tip time is 6 not 7 pm:

Dear Members of the SLU Community,


The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the St. Louis area with snow, sleet, and freezing rain.


The University is closed today. We will resume regular operations on Saturday. Only emergency personnel — as identified by their respective vice president or the provost — should remain at work.

  1. The SLU-Dayton Basketball game will be held as scheduled in the Chaifetz Arena at 6 p.m.
  2. All other scheduled on-campus events on Friday are canceled. If you have an event planned, please alert attendees that the event will not be held.
  3. Shuttles: All SLU shuttles will cease operations today. They will resume regular hours of operation on Saturday.
  4. Simon Recreation Center: May close for part of the day depending upon conditions.

Someone pointed me out today that Dayton's only road game this season was at LaSalle.  Lets gooooo

Dayton won at LaSalle and at St. Joes.  Not exactly the cream of the crop in the A10.  They played no non-conference road games.

Games like this Fieldhouse isnt worth it, wish they had heaters outside.  If only there was another sports bar nearby..

If only there was a space that could be used. Maybe around 3700 Laclede?

Good news is, if the attendance were to be hurting today people would be dumping their tickets on stub hub, but there not and if someone does they get bought right up.

I've been monitoring this as well.  I do wonder though about the older folks who make up a large portion of our season ticket base.  They've likely never used StubHub and are the ones most likely to be deterred by bad weather.  Further, they're probably used to letting their seats go to waste if they don't go to games, so they may not make an effort to get them to anyone else.  Hopefully, StubHub is a good indicator and the weather is going to be a non-factor in terms of how full the arena is.  I'm also hopeful that the weather may deter folks driving from Ohio even if it doesn't deter locals.

Another thing looking at StubHub tells me is that SLU really needs to add more pricing tiers within sections and go to dynamic pricing for games.  For example, those upper bowl center court seats should not be priced the same for the top row as they are for the bottom row in the section.  They also should not be $40 for a mid-week non-conference game vs High Point and the same price for this game.  I know SLU uses a lot of promos to effectively adjust pricing for games, but IMO a dynamic pricing model would be best.  The Cardinals have had dynamic pricing for a while now, so I doubt it would confuse people.

Crazy to think my $99 season tix in section 208 could fetch for $50 on Stub Hub for one big game.

Just spoke with as friendly Dayton fan during my lunch at the Galleria Mall.  I saw the hat and had to talk to him.

Nice guy fly’s up here from Georgia every year for the game.

You get some blue socks? Because if you're wearing any red today, you are toast, Jimbo.
