Loyola Marymount vs. St. Louis results: Lions crushed by Billikens, 65-44

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

Mike McCall and the Billikens had little trouble with a Lions squad that shot 34 percent from the floor on Saturday.

The Loyola Marymount Lions got more than they could handle in St. Louis on Saturday morning, and took a 65-44 beating at the the hands of the Saint Louis Billikens.

Saint Louis (8-3) buried the Lions early, starting the game with a 12-2 run, and extended the lead to 18 points by the end of the first half.

The second half proved to be more of the same, as the Billikens extended their lead to 21 and never looked back.

The Lions (5-6) had a very poor shooting day, making just 34 percent of their field goals and going 2-of-14 from three-point range. To make matters worse, Loyola Marymount only got three points from its bench in the blowout. Guard Anthony Ireland led the Lions with 16 points and eight rebounds, while forward Alex Osborne added 11 points, five rebounds and two steals.

Junior guard Mike McCall Jr. led four Billikens in double figures with 14 points, four assists and three rebounds in the win.
