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.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
