No. 10 Billikens Upend George Washington for 19th Straight

Jordair Jett scored a team-high 16 points and Rob Loe finished one rebound shy of a double-double as No. 10 Saint Louis defeated George Washington 66-59 Saturday night at Chaifetz Arena. The victory, SLU’s 19th in a row, improved its record to 25-2 overall and 12-0 in the Atlantic 10 Conference. GW fell to 20-7 overall and 8-5 in the league. Jett, who came into the game averaging 18.1 points in A-10 play, scored his 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting from the field and was 4 of 7 from the line. He also dished out four assists and recorded two steals. Loe was 6 of 12 from the field and finished with 12 points. He also gathered nine rebounds. Grandy Glaze finished with 10 points and seven rebounds, while Mike McCall Jr. and Austin McBroom contributed eight points apiece. The Billikens, who shot 55.2 percent in the opening half, led 39-27 at halftime. But the Colonials used a 9-0 run midway through the second half to tie the ballgame at 50-all with 9:18 remaining. Saint Louis responded in a big way, going on an 8-0 spurt jump-started by a Loe jumper. McCall buried a pair of free throws, Glaze hit a layup and McCall ended the rally with a layup to put the Billikens on top 58-50.
