Saint Louis senior guard Kevin Lisch led five Billikens in double figures with 21 points as SLU upended Duquesne 78-74 in overtime Wednesday in a key Atlantic 10 men’s basketball showdown at Chaifetz Arena.
With the win, the Billikens advance to 13-9 overall and 4-4 in the A-10. Duquesne, which came into tonight’s game second in the A-10 in scoring and off to its best start since the 1980-81 campaign, dips to 14-7 and 5-3 in the league.
Lisch’s 20 points came on 6-of-15 shooting and included four 3-pointers and six points in overtime. Tommie Liddell III added 13 points, while Willie Reed added 12. Kwamain Mitchell and Barry Eberhardt added 10 points apiece as the Billikens featured five double-digit scorers for the first time since early in the 2006-07 campaign.
