(KSDK Sports) -- The St. Louis University "basketball" Billkens can claim for the first time in 56-years, that they are "out-right" conference champions. Now it's time to achieve their next goal of
winning the Atlantic-10 tournament title.
The tourney begins, later this week, in New York.
The Billikens held one last practice on Monday at Chaifetz Arena before heading out to Brooklyn, New York today. They'll play either Richmond or Charlotte on Friday in the Barclay's Center.
It has been a successful season to this point. Coach Crews' and company have posted 24 wins, beaten a handful of nationally ranked teams and achieved a national ranking themselves.
But, now the real test begins.
