Javonte Perkins has announced he will return to St. Louis University to use his additional year of eligibility after leading the Billikens in scoring his two seasons on the team. It has always been my dream to play professional basketball, and this decision will help prepare me for that and so much more,” Perkins said in a statement. Also, there’s nothing better than playing in front of a packed Chaifetz Arena, and I can’t wait to experience that again next year.
Hasahn French had 15 points as Saint Louis narrowly defeated Richmond 72-67 on Friday night. Javonte Perkins had 15 points for Saint Louis (12-5, 5-4 Atlantic 10 Conference), which earned its fourth consecutive home victory. Jordan Goodwin added 13 points.
There’s also Lily Welti, who ranks #3 on the team in kills per set, but she’s only played in four of their nine matches, and didn’t get into either of the last two. I don’t know if she’ll be available, but if she is, that’s another option for the Billiken attack. Senior Kennedy Cordia handles the setting duties full time, averaging 9.79 assists per set.
