Saint Louis' biggest challenge ahead
By Joe Kaiser
Saint Louis' big win over VCU on Tuesday makes it eight in a row for the red-hot Billikens, which improved to 9-2 in the Atlantic 10 and now hold a half-game lead over Butler and VCU. But a look at the five games remaining on the regular season schedule indicates that Saint Louis could have a hard time holding on to the top spot.
The Billikens head on the road to face No. 15 Butler on Friday and that's just one of three toughies they still must play. On March 6 they face Xavier on the road and three days later they return home to play a hungry La Salle team that's already beaten Butler, VCU and Villanova, and currently sits just 1 game back in the standings.
