The Conference USA schedule makers proved to be good prognosticators if one looks at this weekend's slate of games. The Saint Louis University women's soccer team faces its toughest challenges of the year when third-place South Florida and first-place North Carolina-Charlotte roll into town this weekend. The Billikens stand in fourth place with a 5-1-2 record in the conference and an 11-2-3 overall mark. "These are two real...

Saint Louis University men's soccer coach Bob Warming made a note to himself at last night's game against the University of Missouri-Kansas City Kangaroos: Don't schedule a game during midterm week against an intrastate rival who's looking for respect. The Kangaroos gave the Billikens fits all night, eventually forcing the contest into overtime. But Jason Mims rescued the Bills from a possible debacle by netting the game-winning go...

Saint Louis University volleyball coach Marilyn Nolen knew coming into this season that she would have to rely on freshmen. The question was whether they would respond by playing well right away or if it would be a difficult transition to the college game. Freshmen hitters Colleen Hunter and Brooke Minniear fall into the former category. Hunter and Minniear, both outside hitters, have been playing superbly this season. ...

Brad Soderberg is probably an excellent juggler by now. In his first few months at the helm of the Billikens, Soderberg has had to juggle the Billiken roster for next season with several recent arrivals and departures. Since the spring, the Saint Louis University basketball team inked four new players, which helped offset the departure of three Billikens who have made the decision to transfer. Most recently, the team annou...

It's a hot and humid summer night. Another giant corporate conglomerate declared bankruptcy this morning, more troops were sent abroad to fight the "War on Terror" this afternoon and Tom Brokaw declared that Am...

Our St. Louis Cardinals are showing some tremendous character this summer.

The Cardi...

Co-captains Colleen Hunter and Brooke Minniear are expected to lead the team offensively again this year and have made visible impro...

It's my turn to look at the two clouds hanging over the baseball season, steroids and the possibility of a strike. First off, let's get to the point on the steroid issue. In a season mired with controversy and questions, Rick Reilly made it clear. He stated the obvious, and it was so sweet. It was a simple, straightforward question for Chicago Cubs bomber Sammy Sosa. "You've said if baseball tests for steroids, you want...

As the summer starts to fade away, students' minds start to drift to what the fall will bring. Here at Saint Louis University students begin to think about move-in day, new classes, and of course, soccer. SLU soccer fans have come to expect that each fall the team will win the conference regular season title, make a run through the C-USA tournament and cap the season off with a spot in the NCAA tournament.
