ST. LOUIS -It took much longer than most expected, but Saint Louis University will officially name Jim Crews its full-time men’s basketball coach at a news conference Friday afternoon. According to a tweet from KSDK’s Frank Cusumano, the two sides have agreed on a long term deal and there are no plans to make changes to the coaching staff. Crews is the 26th men’s basketball coach in SLU history and the program’s third since 2006. The announcement comes over two weeks since the Billikens were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament by Oregon.
