Saint Louis Billikens

2012-13: 28-7 (13-3 A-10)
In-conference offense: 1.08 points per possession (6th)
In-conference defense: 0.92 points allowed per possession (1st)

These are heady times in the shadow of the Gateway Arch. The Billikens won the Atlantic 10 regular season and tournament titles en route to a school-record 28 victories last season. They landed a No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament and finished the season ranked 13th in the AP poll. And with four senior starters back, this season could be even better.
