  • Hardwood History

      Charles Spoonhour's Billikens entered the 1997-1998 season on the heels of a disappointing 11-18 season the year before.  But Saint Louis coaches, players and fans had reason to be optimistic for '98.  That reason was Larry Hughes. 

      The freshman Parade All-American chose to stay and play for his hometown school instead of going to one of college basketball's blue blood programs.  Hughes didn't disappoint.  He averaged 21 points and 5 rebounds a game while earning All-CUSA 1st Team honors.

      More importantly the arrival of Hughes led to a program turnaround.  SLU went 21-10 during the regular season which was enough to earn a #10 seed in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament.  A 1st round win against UMass put the Billikens one win away from the Sweet 16.  Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be as Saint Louis fell to #2 seed Kentucky, 88-61.

      "If I could give advice to somebody, I'd tell them to stay home, just to be around your family. You only get one chance." -Larry Hughes
