ST. LOUIS (AP) Jordair Jett took the scoring reins, notching 16 points as Saint Louis beat Wofford 66-52 on Saturday night.

Leading scorer Dwayne Evans (15.7 ppg) was off the mark, scoring only 4 points, but Jett and Rob Loe (14 points) filled the gap for Saint Louis.

The Billikens (9-2) burned Wofford on a 20-4 run, chewing-up 10 first-half minutes, but led by only eight at the break. The score at intermission might have been closer but Saint Louis made 12 of 15 free throws, while the Terriers were only 3 of 4 from the line.

The Billiken point spread remained unchanged throughout most of the second half until Wofford (3-6) went cold, missing several long-ballers in the final 6 minutes and falling behind 66-50 before scoring the last 2 points of the game on a not-so-redeeming dunk by C.J. Neumann.

Spencer Collins added to his team-leading average with 17 points.
