You read it right. The Saint Louis Billikens were defeated by the George Washington Colonials 20-49.  The Billikens set a Division I record for fewest points in a game. The team had a terrible first half with just 7 points, but picked it up in the second half, scoring 13 points.  Bryce Husak was the leading scorer for Saint Louis with 5 points. George Washington’s leading scorer Damian Hollis, almost outscored the entire Saint Louis team with 13 points. 

Billikens head coach Rick Majerus stated, “I thought GW played tough on defense. We had some issues. You have to credit GW for playing very well. We have some issues in terms of our offensive proficiency. I tried to keep coaching the game. Sometimes you miss. We are a team that has some issues. That is why we are practicing [Friday]. We did miss some good shots, yes. Anyone can look at us and see we don’t have height, we don’t have depth.”

With Penn being down 30-6 at halftime to Florida Gulf Coast recently, before “rallying” to only lose by 60-30…I’m starting to wonder about the college game a bit. Even if you appreciate lockdown defense and don’t want your scores to be 101-100…this is ridiculous. Truly hard to believe.

I know it cold in both D.C. and St. Louis right now, but having it reflected on the court is a bit…..hard to fathom. This one is tough to take, but it happens. Not the first and probably won’t be the last game of this sort.

Wasn’t it N.C. State scoring all of 13 points Saturday against North Carolina? I don’t care if they’re playing North Carolina or not…13??? I’m tellin’ ya, college basketball seems to be going backwards. And all of these coaches get paid millions for what again?

If Majerus stays there he will turn the program around. He is a great X and O guy.
