Saint Louis University finished its exhibition season with a 95-47 thumping of nearby Harris-Stowe. The Billikens received double-digit scoring from five different players led by junior Danny Brown’s 18 points. Tommie Liddell chipped in a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.
Early on, Harris Stowe looked like they might be able to pull off the upset. They only trailed the Billikens 32-28 with about five minutes to play in the first half. The Hornets used some hot shooting to stay close nailing four of their first seven attempts from behind the arc. The Billikens then used a 34-6 run to put the game away.
The early touch Harris Stowe displayed from three-point range in the first half was gone after halftime. The Hornets missed nine of their first 10 shots in the second half. They were never able to get back into a rhythm.
