He was back Saturday as the Billikens (6-11) snapped a six-game losing streak with a 67-51 victory over St. Joseph’s (5-12).
“I feel OK,” Majerus said. “I feel good.”
The 62-year-old Majerus was injured in the second half of a loss to Bowling Green on Jan. 1 when he collided with two players and gashed his leg against the scorer’s table. After Saint Louis blew a lead in that game, players said they had been worried.
“I think they were real concerned, and I was more concerned than they were,” Majerus said. “I think it took them a while. They weathered a tough stretch.”
Players said having Majerus back made things more comfortable.
“He knows so much,” guard Kyle Cassity said. “It’s a lift for us.”
“I just showed up,” Majerus said. “I did nothing, those guys did it all.”
