St. Louis Billikens Vs. Temple Owls: St. Louis Falls 72-67

The Temple Owls defeated the St. Louis Billikens on Wednesday.

The Temple Owls proved they were a legitimate threat when they defeated No. 4 Duke to open up 2012, and on Wednesday in St. Louis, they proved they were too much to handle for an improving Billikens team. Temple dropped St. Louis 72-67 to improve to 11-4. St. Louis falls to 13-4 and 1-2 in the Atlantic-10 with the loss. The win was Temple's fifth in their last six games.

St. Louis fell for the third time in four games because of a rough shooting night. The Billikens were 26-of-62 from the floor, good for just a 41 percent shooting percentage. Guard Kwamin Mitchell led the way for St. Louis, scoring 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting. Chicago native Dwayne Evans added 14 points and eight rebounds on 6-of-10 shooting. Guard Jardair Jett received 25 minutes off the bench, scoring 12 points.

Temple was led by guard Khalif Wyatt, who scored 22 points. Ramone Moore added 18 points and seven rebounds for the Owls in the win.
