Saint Louis Vs. Rhode Island Score Update: Billikens Slump To Surprising Defeat

With No. 22 Temple just one game ahead in the Atlantic 10 standings, the Saint Louis Billikens had plenty to play for when they visited last place Rhode Island. However, the Billikens delivered arguably their worst performance of the season in the stunning 64-62 loss.

Although they took care of the ball, committing only six turnovers, the Billikens struggled to develop any offensive rhythm in the loss. As a team, Saint Louis shot just 36.1% from the field and just 10/29 from behind the three-point line. Dwayne Evans scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for the double-double. Kwamain Mitchell scored 12 points and dished out two assists, while Brian Conklin added 10 points in the loss.

Orion Outerbridge helped lead the Rams back from a halftime deficit, as he scored a game-high 18 points on 8/14 shooting from the field. Billy Baron chipped in 13 points on 4/10 shooting in the victory.
