(KMOV) -- The Billikens have been a great story all season and they deserve the recognition they’re currently receiving.  Making the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000 is a great accomplishment, but you have to think SLU wants more. 

But just because you want to advance, doesn’t mean you will.  What SLU has going for them is they can shoot the three well.  In a tournament you can ride one or two hot players deep into the rounds, and that’s what the Bills must do.  Cody Ellis, Kyle Cassity, even Rob Loe must catch a hot streak early if SLU has any chance of advancing against Memphis. 

What makes the Big Dance so exciting is we get see and hear stories from teams and players who we’re fairly unfamiliar with; SLU is the perfect example of a team that the nation would enjoy getting to know.  With that said, I don’t think the Bills will be dancing for long.
