Bills End Nonconference Slate with Convincing Win

Saint Louis senior forward Rob Loe scored a game-high 19 points and sophomore guard Austin McBroom dropped 16 as the Billikens cruised to a 75-55 win against Yale Saturday at Chaifetz Arena. The Billikens improve to 13-2 with the victory. SLU’s 13 wins represent the most through the first 15 games of a season since Charlie Spoonhour’s Billikens went 14-1 to start the 1993-94 season. It was the final game before the Atlantic 10 Conference schedule for Saint Louis, which heads to Kingston, R.I., to face Rhode Island Tuesday. Yale falls to 5-7.
