The Plight of the Billikens

LArry St Louis 

 Larry Hughes’ alma mater accomplished something big tonight. Saint Louis set the Division I record for fewest points in a game, falling 49-20 to George Washington in the Atlantic 10 opener for both teams.

20 points. Total. In the entire game.

Check out the box score. It’s like having 5 Larry Hugheses starting and 5 more of them on the bench!

St Louis box score

But Billikens fret not. While your 14.6% shooting was bad, keep in mind:

  • Already this season, Larry has shot worse than 14% in three games
  • Larry has shot worse than 20% in seven games

Guess who’s also a notable alum?

    I was recently asked this question…Was Larry Hughes born with all that ink?

    My theory is no, he wasn’t.

    He was probably sitting around one day thinking to himself, “Hell, I’ve mastered the lost art of the mid to long range brick. What else can I do to make myself more of a douchebag?”

    Right then and there it hit him like a ton of bricks (sorry for the pun).

    Get a tatoo for every terrible game i have in a Cavs uniform, and as you all can see, he has had more than a few bad games…

    Obviously St. Louis needed to get more shots for L. Meyer. I don’t know what the coach was thinking. You gotta feed the hot hand.

    It is no coincidence that Laura played there.

    when 10 out of 12 players sound like they’re from a german soccer team, thats not a good sign.

    I love your site. Think your humor and points are spot on. Ever thought of doing one for Eric Snow, i.e. “Mr. Defense”?

    Keep up the good work.

    A Phoenix announcer mentioned your site during the Suns vs Cavs game. Really like your site, but Larry had a real nice game that nite. If your a Cavs fan, hope he’ll continue that kind of play.

    20 in honor # 20! I wonder if the Billikens have Hughes’ jersey in the rafters…
