Bloomberg TV Features Chaifetz Arena, Billiken Basketball
ST. LOUIS - Bloomberg TV visited Chaifetz Arena recently for a story on the rise of what the network calls "one of college basketball's most promising programs."
The feature debuted Wednesday night and is available online at: http://www.bloomberg.com/video/business-of-st-louis-basketball-sportfolio-12-5-q3IlBixQRziemmQDBgXMIg.html
The financial news network also examines Saint Louis University's business model and how a mid-sized school without a BCS football program can find success in basketball.
The feature includes an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Arena with the building's namesake, SLU alumnus Dr. Richard Chaifetz.
Director of Athletics Chris May and his staff discuss the impact Chaifetz Arena has made on the University's athletics programs and how the state-of-the-art facility has contributed to building fan excitement on campus and in the St. Louis community.
The story also includes an interview with Interim Head Coach Jim Crews, who - among other things - reflects on leading the men's basketball team this year without the late Rick Majerus on the sidelines.
