VCU suffers worst loss of year at Saint Louis

Posted: Updated:

VCU faced a battle for first place Tuesday night in Saint Louis. And the Rams proved they didn't deserve the moniker "Best Team in the Atlantic-10".

The newly ranked 24th ranked team in the country was blown out by the Billikens, 76-62.

Jordair Jett scored all 16 of his points in the second half and Mike McCall, Jr. added 15 to help Saint Louis win its eighth straight and take sole possession of first place.

Saint Louis (20-5, 9-2) holds a half-game advantage over No. 15 Butler (21-6, 9-3), which beat cellar dweller Duquesne 68-49 Tuesday. The Billikens will visit Butler Friday. SLU defeated the Bulldogs at home 75-58 on Jan. 31.

Led by Jett and Cody Ellis, who contributed 10 points, SLU's bench outscored VCU's 34-14. Dwayne Evans also was in double figures for SLU with 14 points.

VCU (21-6, 9-3) was led by Juvonte Reddic with 19 points and 12 rebounds. The double-double was his 10th this season.
