Cody Ellis scored a game-high 20 points, which included five second-half 3-pointers, as the Saint Louis Billikens rolled to a 72-60 victory at Saint Joseph’s Wednesday night at Hagan Arena. The win was the Billikens’ third in a row and their sixth in the last seven games. They move to 19-5 overall and 7-3 in the Atlantic 10 Conference. SLU remains a half-game back of league-leader Temple (7-2 in the A-10) in the league standings.
Ellis’ career-high-tying 20 points came on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and 6-of-9 from 3-point range. Five of his 3-pointers came at a crucial time in the second half when the game was still in doubt. The Billikens as a team shot 10 of 20 from past the arc.
