St. Louis sets a men's college basketball record low...Yikes!

I knew it was going to be one for the record books when I was watching some basketball game on ESPN and the score flashed at halftime and they had 7. That's amazing. You really have to be bad to score 7 points in 20 minutes.

EDIT: I just looked up the stats. 24 consecutive missed shots?! That's spectacularly bad!

They couldn't have done better if they played the real George Washington. Come on, that's just sloppy.

Also, what is the domain for calling it a record? Weren't there like 15-11 games back in 1908-1920's?

Probably shot clock era.

Ouch, SLU is my dad's alma matter and he has always told me just how small they were and how bad they used to get spanked by bigger schools. And just to let you in on how long ago he attended SLU, he said one player matchup in particular that was always good was Bob Ferry vs Oscar Robertson :wacko:

The article said the record (pre shot clock) was in 1973.

Shockingly it was Temple losing to Tennesse 11-6!

Unless I'm reading the article wrong or there was a typo because that seems way to recent to have a game like that. But I found the results elsewhere...so it must be legit.

20 is shocking. I've watched a couple early season Illinois games (previous seasons obviously) where the other team had less than 20 at the half and I thought that was a pretty big deal.

But I'm still shocked that 35 years ago there was an 11-6 game!

You guys are all focusing on the bad points (or lack therof). The silver lining in all of this is that SLU practically doubled their point production in the second half!

:P

Well after scoring 7 points, you really can only go up.......I hope :blink:
