ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Senior guard Mike Crawford and sophomore guard Jermaine Bishop return to the Saint Louis University Billikens with higher expectations than most.
They have been included on Sports Illustrated’s ‘Top 100 Projected Scorers.’ Crawford and Bishop were ranked No. 60 and 77 respectively on the projected scoring list by SI’s Luke Winn.

The pair are the highest returning scorers to the Billikens — Crawford with 10.3 points per game, and Bishop with 8.9 of his own last year.
And interestingly enough, another St. Louis player is expected to be the best scoring freshman in the country. Too bad for Saint Louis, that St. Louis native Jayson Tatum he plays for Duke. Winn believes the graduate of Chaminade High School will average nearly 17 points for the Blue Devils, which would be second on the team by his projections, behind junior guard Grayon Allen.
