St. Louis Billikens forward Cody Ellis knocked down a three-pointer with two seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime on Wednesday, but St. Louis fell in the extra session to Dayton 79-72. St. Louis led by eight at halftime, but went cold in the second half. It was enough for Dayton to escape with the win and improved to 11-4. St. Louis falls to 12-3 with the loss.
Briain Conklin led all Billikens scorers with 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting. Four other St. Louis scorers each double-figures, as well.
