Record Crowd Sees Billikens Win 17th Straight

Dwayne Evans scored a game-high 21 points to lead four Saint Louis players in double figures, and the 12th-ranked Billikens held off a late VCU rally to post their 17th straight victory, 64-62, Saturday afternoon before a Chaifetz Arena record crowd of 10,639. The Billikens improved to 23-2 overall – the best 25-game start in program history – and 10-0 in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The 10-0 league start is one win shy of tying the school mark of 11-0, set by the 1946-47 Bills in the Missouri Valley Conference. SLU continued to prove its ability to win the close ones in A-10 play. Seven of the Billikens’ 10 conference games have been decided by eight or fewer points, and four contests have had a margin of four or fewer points. Second-place VCU, which lost for the second time in three games, fell to 20-6, 8-3.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
