Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The 13th-ranked Saint Louis Billikens set a school record with their 15th straight victory and beat the Saint Joseph's Hawks for an eighth consecutive time.

Rob Loe had 17 points in the Billikens' 65-49 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday.

Jordair Jett added 10 points and seven assists for Saint Louis (21-2, 8-0 A-10), which hasn't lost since Dec. 1 against Wichita State. Austin McBroom and Mike McCall Jr. each tallied nine points.

Ronald Roberts Jr. ended with 19 points, nine rebounds and four blocks for Saint Joseph's (15-7, 5-3), which was unable to build off a win over then-No. 21 Massachusetts on Saturday.

Holding a 19-18 edge with 8:17 left, Saint Louis closed out the first half on a 16-4 run. McBroom tallied seven points during the spurt to help the visitors take a 35-22 margin into the locker room.
