Who are those tall guys sitting in the electronic section next to the big screen floor model?
Oh, that’s just the St. Louis University Billikens basketball team watching the Selection Show for the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
If you were at the Best Buy in Secaucus, NJ yesterday, you may have encountered the Billikens basketball team who made an impromptu stop at the electronics giant after being delayed by traffic on their way to catch their charter flight at the Teterboro Airport. The plan was to watch show, which aired at 6pm ET on Sunday, in the airport terminal but traffic dictated that wasn’t going to happen.
Alas, there is a Best Buy o’er yonder someone bemoaned.
That Best Buy proved to be their saving grace as the Billikens name was announced early in the show as the #4 seed in the Midwest bracket where they will face #13 New Mexico St.
Just the latest chapter in a very dramatic season in where their head coach, Rick Majerus, died December 1st from heart failure. The team was able to regroup and have a breakthrough season winning their first Atlantic 10 championship and their first conference championship since 2000 when they were a member of Conference USA.
