St. Louis head coach Brad Soderberg wanted a physical game, unfortunately for the Billikens, it was a lack of physical presence that cost them in a 60-54 loss. SLU was out-rebounded 33-13 by the 24th-ranked Warriors in both teams’ Conference USA opener. Marque Perry led the Bills in scoring with 20 as they dropped to 6-6 on the season. On Saturday, SLU travels to Louisville.
