University of Missouri-St. Louis at St. Louis University 3 November 2006
SLU Billikens (0-0, 0-0) blew past the University of Missouri-St. Louis (0-0, 0-0) 84-50 at the Scottrade Center (reported attendance, n/a). This classic Division I versus Division II match-up was a mismatch from the start as the Billikens took command of the court over the Riverman. Senior center Ian Vouyoukas (10 pts), sophomore guard Tommie Liddell (10 pts), and sophomore guard Kevin Lisch (9 pts) provided most of SLU's 43-20 halftime lead. Coach Soderberg was able to provide many of his players (including redshirt freshman forward Obi Ikeakor [9 pts, 4 rebounds]) with court time. The Billikens shot 47% from the field (36% from 3-pt range) and 67% from the charity line. The Riverman were led by senior forward Brad Ledbetter (15 pts, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 turnovers) and junior forward David Ward (11 pts, 9 rebounds, 4 turnovers). UMSL shot 29% from the field (29% from 3-pt range) and 48% from the charity line.
