Yes, the Rams topped Rick Majerus' St. Louis team in the second game of the CBI's rather novel three-game championship format, taking the title home to a no-doubt enthralled Richmond, Va. I might be being a little sarcastic, but this is actually a pretty darn good win for the Rams -- Majerus' team made a serious run at NCAA tournament inclusion down the stretch of the season. Had the Billikens won another game in the A-10 tournament, they would have played in the Big Dance. So while winning the CBI title isn't exactly the stuff childhood dreams are made of, beating St. Louis to do so certainly counts for something.
Still getting some nice national pub even though it's the CBI.
