McCall Jr. Scores 1,000th Career Point; Billikens Beat Aggies

Dwayne Evans notched his second straight 20-plus-point performance to lead the Billikens to a 79-57 win over North Carolina A&T Saturday at Chaifetz Arena. The victory was Saint Louis’s fifth in a row.Evans scored 22 points on 5-of-10 shooting and snagged a game-high 13 rebounds for his 20th career double-double. As he did against Indiana State in his last outing — a SLU season-high 24-point effort — Evans did most of his damage at the free-throw line. Evans went 11 of 14 from the charity stripe today after going 16 of 20 from the line against the Sycamores. Mike McCall Jr. became the 29th player in Saint Louis history to reach 1,000 career points when he sunk a second-half free throw. During the ensuing media timeout, McCall Jr. was given a standing ovation from the crowd. He finished the contest with 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Rob Loe netted 12 points and blocked four shots, while Austin McBroom canned three first-half 3-pointers and scored 10 points. Lamont Middleton recorded 18 points for the Aggies. Richaud Pack scored 11 points, and Bruce Beckford chipped in 10. Saint Louis improved to 11-2 while North Carolina A&T, a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) school, fell to 3-9.
