Official SLU News: Billikens Ranked No. 23 in Latest AP Top 25 Poll

Recommended Posts

That's a pleasant surprise. I figured the fact that we didn't play this past week would be held against us. This is the first time in the TF era. Hopefully we stay there the rest of the season - which should help with spring recruiting.

1. Keep the strict quarantine & avoid any further spread so they can get back on the court ASAP

2. Avoid any post-quarantine let down / malaise losses to teams we should beat.

3. Win games that we should win.

4. Continue climbing in the rankings as other teams add more losses.

This is actually where playing in a relatively weak conference can help us.  It is tougher to get ranked, but once you are you can climb (up to a certain point) by winning games you should and watching other teams in tougher conferences lose.  Dayton and San Diego State did this last year.  Gonzaga and Wichita State  have done it in the past.  The double edged sword is that any loss probably drops you from the rankings unless you climb high enough.
