Written by: Alex Alarcon
Saint Louis (4-11, 0-3 A-10) vs. Duquesne (8-8, 1-2 A-10)
Game Time: Wednesday, Jan. 11 6 p.m. Palumbo Center
Lines: Duquesne -10
Saint Louis (4-11, 0-3 A-10) begins a two-game roadswing Wednesday when it faces the Duquesne Dukes in Pittsburgh.
Can St. Louis Pull Off The Upset?
SLU is in its 12th year in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The Bills captured A-10 regular-season crowns in 2013 and 2014 and won the A-10 Tournament in 2013.
Junior guard Davell Roby is second on the Billikens with 10.3 ppg. Over the last two games, he is 6-of-8 from 3-point range.
Senior forward Reggie Agbeko scores 9.4 ppg and is second in the Atlantic 10 Conference with 8.1 rpg. He has four double-doubles on the season and seven in his career.
Senior guard Mike Crawford averages 9.4 ppg, including a team-high 11 ppg in A-10 games. Redshirt freshman forward Elliott Welmer scores 7.6 ppg.
Time For A Rebound
Duquesne (8-8 overall, 1-2 in the A-10) has dropped two in a row, including an 88-81 defeat at La Salle in the Dukes’ last outing.
The Dukes are led by Mike Lewis II, a three-time A-10 Rookie of the Week who averages 12.7 ppg. He has buried a team-high 27 treys for Duquesne. Emile Blackman follows with 11.7 ppg, while Isiaha Mike rounds out three scorers averaging double-figures for Duquesne.
Duquesne’s top four scorers – all starters – are newcomers. The Dukes lost 70 percent of its scoring from last season.
- Billikens are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games following a ATS win.
- Billikens are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Billikens are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home.
- Dukes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
- Dukes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic 10.
Saint Louis has been no where near a win in the past weeks as the Dukes have hit a small bump in the road. However, Duquesne should rebound against the Billikens and enjoy a nice victory.
