Recap


Saint Louis 60, No. 23 New Mexico 46:
Cory Remekun scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and the host Billikens used a strong defensive effort to knock off the Lobos.

Mike McCall Jr. added 12 points and three steals and Cody Ellis scored 13 off the bench for Saint Louis (10-3), which has won seven straight games and has held its last four opponents to less than 50 points.

Kendall Williams scored 15 points and Alex Kirk added 13 for New Mexico (13-2), which had returned to the Top 25 on Monday afternoon after knocking off then-No. 8 Cincinnati last week.

The Billikens limited the Lobos to 13 points on 26.3 percent shooting in the first half to take a 33-13 lead into the break. New Mexico went the final 6:56 of the half without a field goal as Saint Louis extended an eight-point lead out to 20.

The Lobos woke up offensively at the start of the second half and began the period with a 16-5 run to chop the deficit to single digits. But Remekun converted a three-point play to spark a 14-2 run and put it away.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
New Mexico has dropped two of its last three after opening the season with 12 straight wins. The Lobos begin Mountain West play by hosting UNLV on Jan. 9. … Saint Louis has one more game left on the non-conference schedule (versus Savannah on Friday) before opening Atlantic 10 play against Massachusetts on Jan. 10. … The Billikens went 5-of-21 from 3-point range, with only Ellis (3-of-6) hitting more than one from beyond the arc.
