Majerus SLU Crew interviewed on 'The Big Show' in St. Louis


Majerus SLU Crew GM Matt Marske and the team's shooting guard, Danny Brown, appeared on The Big Show on CBS Sports Radio 920 on Thursday afternoon to discuss The Basketball Tournament.

Marske is putting together a Saint Louis alumni team, hoping to turn 92 wins the Billikens tallied during his four years as a team manager into $1,000,000 this summer. Marske named the team, the Majerus SLU Crew, in honor of the late Rick Majerus, who served as the head coach from 2007-12. Majerus was responsible for bringing in guys like Dwayne Evans and Jordair Jett, who helped guided the Billikens to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances (2012-14). Evans and Jett will be joined by former teammate Mike McCall Jr. and Brown, the current Saint Louis assistant coach, to make up a very dangerous perimeter.

"We have a good core, the same core from the last 3-4 years that took us to the NCAA Tournament," Brown said during the 10-minute interview. "So, we're hoping that makes an easier transition with the new guys who are going to be involved. They're all professionals, so they know how to play the game. They all have a good feel for the game. What we want to do is establish a good chemistry very quickly because it is a single-elimination tournament. We going to have to merge together really fast."

Majerus SLU Crew has already surpassed 100 votes and is eligible for TBT. As of Monday, the team stood third in the South Region (Atlanta) standings.
