    Rick Majerus' Health Problems Resurface Once Again

    As you've no doubt heard by now, Rick Majerus stepped down as head coach of the Saint Louis University Billikens on Friday for health reasons.

    SLU vs. La Salle: A Not-So-Special Senior Moment

    The Saint Louis University basketball team tried hard on Saturday against La Salle, they really did. They clawed for every rebound, dove for every loose ball and hustled themselves to exhaustion on defense, erasing any lingering doubts about whether they have bought into Rick Majerus' grind-it-out, ...

    SLU Ski Team Loses to Richmond

    Just when I point out that SLU needs to give "veteran" players like senior Barry Eberhardt and sophomore Paul Eckerle more minutes, a game like the one yesterday against Richmond happens. SLU fought hard in their 70-62 loss, but with freshman point guard Kwamain Mitchell out with a concussion, they ... More >>

    SLU Beats UMass, Realizes It Has Experienced Players

    There's been much ado in the land of SLU about the youth of the Billikens. When the season started, there were seven true freshmen on the roster and, thus far, freshman have played about half of the team's minutes.

    Darius Miles: One Second Away From Costing Portland $18 Million

    SLU B-Ball: Young Ballers and Better Cheerleaders

    Watching the SLU basketball last night for the first time this season, one thing became very obvious: It's going to be awhile before anyone not named Kevin Lisch or Tommie Liddell leads the team in scoring.
