The St. Louis Billikens look to keep their perfect 5-0 home record alive when they host the struggling Alabama St. Hornets, who are just 1-5 on the road this season, on Saturday night. The Billikens are riding a three-game winning streak, and hope to keep their hot shooting alive over the weekend. The team is currently ranked 26th in the nation in field goal percentage (48.6%), while the Hornets are an abysmal 332nd overall in the same category (37.4%).
The Billikens offense is lead by senior forward Brian Conklin, who is averaging 16.0 points per game on an astonishingly high 64.3% shooting percentage, to go along with 5.0 rebounds per game this season. He is undoubtedly the player to keep an eye on in this matchup.
