Texas A&M-Corpus Christi finished with a flurry to hand Saint Louis its first loss of the season Sunday afternoon at Chaifetz Arena. The Islanders went on a 13-4 run during the game’s final 3:18 to turn a 52-49 deficit into a 62-56 victory. Ash Yacoubou, who led SLU with 13 points, hit a layup to give the Billikens a 52-49 lead with 4:39 remaining. But the Islanders promptly scored 10 unanswered points to grab the contest by the throat.
