The SLU men’s and women’s basketball teams will formally begin their seasons on Saturday, Oct. 12 with Billiken Madness at Chaifetz Arena. The traditional season kick off will include intrasquad scrimmages, shooting contests, and introductions to the team. In addition, fans will have an opportunity to come onto the court to meet players and coaches and get autographs.
Both women’s basketball coach Lisa Stone and men’s basketball coach Jim Crews begin their second season at SLU looking to make a splash in the Atlantic 10. The men’s basketball team has its regular season opener in Chaifetz Arena on Friday, Nov. 8, when they will face Southeast Missouri. The women’s team has yet to make their full schedule public.
