Each basketball schedule will be updated whenever a tip time changes or new TV information is revealed. These links will work best with iCal but are importable into Google Calendar.

Since driving home from Saint Louis in March, I've frequently been thinking about a "wish list" for this year's roster. Hopefully these paragraphs on each returning and incoming player will spark some interesting responses in the comments. I've gone in alphabetical order for the upperclassmen, with the coaching staff and freshmen worked in at the end.
