ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – SLU has lost four of their last five games…not exactly the way a team would want to enter the NCAA tournament.

However, the Billikens are hopeful they can get back to playing like the team that won 19 straight games.

The team loaded up on buses this evening to head to the airport. They will face the winner of the North Carolina State-Xavier game on Thursday.

Admittedly, they've played pretty sloppy. To make a run in the tournament, there's a sense of urgency to get it right.
