You read it right. The Saint Louis Billikens were defeated by the George Washington Colonials 20-49. The Billikens set a Division I record for fewest points in a game. The team had a terrible first half with just 7 points, but picked it up in the second half, scoring 13 points. Bryce Husak was the leading scorer for Saint Louis with 5 points. George Washington’s leading scorer Damian Hollis, almost outscored the entire Saint Louis team with 13 points.
Billikens head coach Rick Majerus stated, “I thought GW played tough on defense. We had some issues. You have to credit GW for playing very well. We have some issues in terms of our offensive proficiency. I tried to keep coaching the game. Sometimes you miss. We are a team that has some issues. That is why we are practicing [Friday]. We did miss some good shots, yes. Anyone can look at us and see we don’t have height, we don’t have depth.”
