The remainder of St. Louis University’s regular-season basketball schedule is set with the Billikens playing three games over the final seven days.

SLU had a game added against Massachusetts on Monday, March 1 at 5 p.m. at Chaifetz Arena. That will follow a game tomorrow night at VCU and a meeting with Richmond on Friday at Chaifetz.

SLU and UMass had their previous two meetings postponed due to COVID-related issues while the Billikens were in quarantine. The Minutemen have had two long COVID pauses, including one that will end with a game against Richmond on Tuesday. They haven't played since Feb. 6.

The Billikens are 4-3 and in seventh place in the Atlantic 10 and 11-4 overall. The final three games will be against teams ahead of SLU in the standings.

The A-10 tournament starts March 3 in Richmond, Va. The first four rounds will be played on the campuses of Richmond and VCU before the championship game is played March 14 at Dayton.

In this episode of Billikens Beat, SLU beat writer Stu Durando and Post-Dispatch sports columnist Ben Frederickson preview SLU's big game against Dayton on Friday, and dig into the details of the rescheduled A-10 conference tournament. How could the shift affect SLU? A big game against VCU just got even bigger.
