Jordair Jett scored 19 of his game-high 25 points in the second half, including the game-winner on a layup with 4 seconds left, as Saint Louis extended its school-record winning streak to 16 games with a 65-63 victory over La Salle on Saturday.
Dwayne Evans added 14 points to help the Billikens (22-2, 9-0 Atlantic 10) remain perfect on the road and in league play. Their 9-0 record away from home is the best undefeated road record in the country.
With the game at 63, after a driving layup by La Salle with 33 seconds left, the Billikens isolated Jett at the top of the key, waiting to go with just seven seconds on the clock. Jett cut through the defense with layup for the lead and Tyrone Garland missed the potential game-winner from halfcourt at the buzzer.
