Billikens Rolling Along

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Beating a pair of Top 25 schools last week put Saint Louis back on the national map. Rather than lobby to have the interim label removed, coach Jim Crews is reveling in the moment.

There's been no drop in production from the team assembled by the late Rick Majerus that ended the school's 12-year NCAA tournament drought last spring and is poised for a repeat bid.

Atop the Atlantic-10 after knocking off VCU and Butler last week, the Billikens are ranked for the first time this season at No. 18 and have won nine in a row heading into Wednesday night's game against Saint Joseph's.

Crews' last taste of Division I head coaching was getting fired at Army in 2009, and he's concentrating on keeping the program humming.
