Saint Louis University Mourns the Loss of Rick Majerus

Saint Louis University mourns the loss of former head men's basketball coach Rick Majerus, who passed away Saturday, Dec. 1. Majerus coached the Billikens from 2007-12. In 25 years as a collegiate head coach, he posted an overall record of 517-216. In five seasons at SLU, the Billikens went 95-69. During his five years as SLU's head coach, Majerus put the men's basketball program back on the map. Last season, he guided the Billikens to the third round of the NCAA Tournament, SLU's first NCAA appearance since 2000. In addition, the Billikens topped Memphis in the second round for their first NCAA Tournament win since 1998. Saint Louis entered the national polls for the first time since the 1994-95 season. Also highlighting the Majerus era at SLU were an appearance in the finals of the postseason College Basketball Invitational in 2010 and the ESPN 76 Classic championship a year ago, SLU's first in-season tournament title since 1986.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
