The Saint Louis Billikens put a four-game losing streak to bed last night with a 55-47 win at the University of South Florida. SLU’s defense was almost perfect in the first half, as they held the Bulls to just 3-of-25 shooting and led 26-12 after the first 20 minutes. USF shot 46 percent from the field in the second half, but Saint Louis shot 47 percent. The biggest downfall for SLU, despite the win, was their inability to hold on to the ball—they finished with 20 turnovers. Darren Clarke led the Billikens in scoring with 15 points and Anthony Drejaj added 10 as SLU improved to 6-16 overall an d 4-6 in Conference USA play.
