Dayton, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Dwayne Evans shot 9-of-11 from the field en route to a game-high 22 points and nine rebounds, as the Saint Louis Billikens notched a 67-59 win over the Dayton Flyers in an Atlantic 10 Conference tussle at UD Arena.

Austin McBroom chipped in with 17 points off the bench and Jordair Jett tallied 12 points and five assists to help lift the Billikens (15-2, 2-0 A-10) to their ninth straight victory and remain unbeaten on the road this season.
