Thu, 20 Feb 2014 03:30:49 GMT — Jordair Jett scored 24 of his 25 points after halftime and Rob Loe hit two key 3-pointers in overtime as No. 10 St. Louis escaped with its 18th straight win, 89-85 over George Mason on Wednesday night. The Billikens (24-2, 11-0 Atlantic-10), playing as a Top 10 team for the first time since Dec. 29, 1964, extended their school-record winning streak and remained with No. 1 Syracuse and No. 3 Wichita State as the only teams in the country without a loss on the road. Sherrod Wright had a career-high 34 points for the Patriots (9-17, 2-10), which lost for the 11th time in 13 games and are still without a home win in conference play. Loe hit consecutive 3-pointers to give the Billikens a 79-77 lead with 3:10 remaining in overtime, and Saint Louis would not relinquish the lead from that point. The teams played overtime in their earlier meeting, an 87-81 Saint Louis win on Feb. 1.
