ST. LOUIS (AP) -Saint Louis junior guard Paul Eckerle will miss the entire season with a knee injury, leaving the team without an upperclassman.
The Billikens have four sophomores, a redshirt freshman and six freshmen entering coach Rick Majerus' third season. Eckerle played in 30 games last season, averaging 1.6 points. He underwent surgery in August, and Majerus said he won't be able to recover in time.
Saint Louis was 18-14 last season. The Billikens open the regular season Nov. 14 against Southeast Missouri State.
