I wrote a print edition article this week
, looking at the brackets in the NCAA Tournament
, doing some complaining about the selection committee's seeding choices, and previewing the road the Missouri Tigers
will have to travel -- through the first couple rounds, at least -- if they want to get their name off that list of schools with the most tournament appearances to never make it to the Final Four
I also put a little bit in there about the Billikens of St. Louis University. I talked a little about their season, their seeding, their opponent; basically, the same coverage I gave Mizzou. However, due to the space limitations of print journalism, we had to lose some of the material. The Tigers are the bigger story; they got the full coverage, while most of the SLU section hit the cutting room floor. I felt bad; the Billikens are the localest of local teams for we St. Louisans, but hey, them's the breaks. The Billikens had a very nice season; the Tigers are a top five team nationally.
Still, in order to try and correct the (very mild), wrong I feel we inflicted upon the Billikens, I thought I should really do a fuller write up on their first-round matchup with the Memphis Tigers. So here you go.
