Saint Louis Routs New Mexico State

Saint Louis, which has been pegged by some as a potential dark horse contender and a stumbling block for Louisville, marched onward in the tournament with a dominant performance over New Mexico State to win 64-44.


The Billikens have dedicated their season to late legendary coach Rick Majerus.Interim Head Coach Jim Cruz has replaced Majerus and is now in contention for Coach of the Year.


While Saint Louis was in control throughout the game, it was the end of the game that saw the Billikens truly pull away.


The team is led by Junior forward Dwayne Evans who averages 13.7 ppg and 7.7 rpg. Evans was once again predominant on Tuesday, providing 24 points and 6 rebounds for the Billikens.


A concern for Saint Louis moving forward is the lack of supporting cast surrounding Evans. Either Oklahoma State or Oregon await the Billikens in the second round as the two teams will likely vie for the chance to face Louisville in the Sweet 16.
