Recap: Dayton vs. Saint Louis

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.

Jordan Sibert had 15 points and Dyshawn Pierre scored 13 for the Flyers (12-4, 0-1), who were playing in their conference opener and brought a three-game winning streak into the game.

The Billikens had the hot hand early on, as they shot 52 percent from the floor in the first half while the Flyers shot just 31.3 percent and went 1- of-7 from beyond the arc. SLU led by as many as 13 late in the opening frame and took a 34-25 advantage into the break.

The Flyers were just 9-of-30 (.300) from the floor in the second stanza, although they did manage to whittle a 12-point deficit down to five in the final minute of regulation. However, SLU made free throws down the stretch to seal the outcome.

The Billikens committed 18 turnovers for the game, but they were efficient from both 3-point range (7-of-18) and the foul line (14-of-17).
