Indiana University-Purdue University - Indianapolis at St. Louis University 27 November 2010
Saint Louis University Billikens (3-2) won 58-55 over the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Jaguars (2-4) at the Chaifetz Arena (reported attendance = 5,558). SLU once again built a comfortable lead at the half, 39-28, but committed enough turnovers and demonstrated poor shooting to allow the visitors to make this a closer game. The inexperience showed as freshman center Rob Loe did not score (0-6 FGA; 0-4 3-pointers). The Billikens were led by junior guard Paul Eckerle (12 pts), freshman guard Mike McCall (9 pts, 3 assists), freshman forward Dwayne Evans (8 pts, 6 rebounds), and junior guard Kyle Cassity (8 pts). The Jaguars were led by junior forward Alex Young (17 pts, 6 rebounds), junior guard Stephen Thomas (13 pts, 8 rebounds) junior forward Christian Siakam (10 pts, 7 rebounds), and senior guard Leroy Nobles (9 pts, 4 rebounds). Saint Louis shot 43% from the field (36% [5-14] from 3-pt range) and 68% (15-22) from the charity line. IUPUI shot 35% from the field (0% [0-8] from 3-pt range) and 83% (19-23) from the charity line. The Billikens had 32 rebounds (8O, 24D), 12 assists, 5 steals, 5 blocked shots, and 13 turnovers as compared with 31 rebounds (10O, 21D), 4 assists, 5 steals, 2 blocked shots, and 10 turnovers by the Jaguars.
