  1. Anyone have any expectations, scouting or thoughts on this game? I heard there will be a large Butler crowd in attendance.

    I'm curious how to watch the game? It says ESPN+, is it only being broadcast online to subscribers of that?

    Nah in Illinois, so I guess I might be SOL.

    I hate this game. They're not good enough to be much of a resume-boosting win (though if they win the A10, I guess that changes), but they're plenty good enough to beat us.

    So far this season, SLU has been pretty bad offensively but has played solid defense. They take very few threes and when they do take them, they make them at just a 31% rate. What they do best is prevent second chance points.

    That means they'll light us up from 3 on Saturday. Seems like that's usually how it works.

    Some unknown whose career high is 4 points will go off for 6 3's and drop 27...

    Allow me to present you Fred Thatch Jr. A 6'3 freshman from Sikeston (that's not a really place), Missouri who is averaging 1.7 pts and shooting 8.3% on 3s (1-12) in just under 15 minutes a game. He seems like the perfect candidate to drop in 16 points and hit 4 triples on Saturday.

    Red Panda will be there and they're handing out Rally Towels.... Not a good sign.

    I liked SLU. I went to SLU for law school. Then, the year we were in the A10, when discussing the new Big East on the Holy Land of Hoops board, I suggested the league stay at 10 teams to give SLU more time to show they were able to sustain success (something they haven't done). This resulted in a discussion on the billikens message board about figuring out where I live and suggesting a violent lesson being taught to me about respecting their program. I no longer like SLU. I really hope we embarrass them on their own cookie-cutter court.

    Apparently they're almost sold out for the game on Saturday - Hopefully the guys are ready, but this will be SLU's biggest home contest of the year. Bank on it being extra hostile.

    Yeah they abused us that year in the A10. I distinctly remember telling my friend that St Louis sports fans are some of the best fans around...know the sport, respectful etc. then they came to Hinkle and we’re absolute jackasses. Several fans were booted from Hinkle for taunting other fans and players. X type of behavior

    This just results from Cardinals fans false sense of superiority.

    IIRC, Mr. Chaifetz, who donated to get his name on the arena, has a courtside seat right at halfcourt and likes to be obnoxious.

    I know nothing about SLU's team or how he's doing this sesason, but frosh Carte'Are Gordon was a AAU/HS beast and recruiting coup for Ford

    on a personal note, IMO this isn't a trap game and I'm laying the points (assuming we're favored). we'll see how that plays out for me

    BU should be favored by about 2.5

    Not sure if you really want to know or just being facetious, but I'll post anyway. It's 20.6, or 240th in the country. Like I said above, SLU's offense has really struggled so far, as it doesn't have any clear strengths and does have some definitive weaknesses (e.g., turnover rate and three point percentage). Its offense actually ranks below Miami-OH's and is only slightly ahead of Detroit's. If we can put up points, they should struggle to keep up.
