Ben Scrivens' quick glove kept Stastny from scoring the game-winner midway through the third period, but St. Louis' center found the net on a...

Outshot, outrebounded, outplayed: Billikens fail to compete in harrowing home loss

ST. LOUIS -- Saint Louis coach Jim Crews didn't have much of an explanation after the Billikens' 78-50 loss to George Mason on Saturday night at Chaifetz Arena. "It's pretty simple. We didn't compete. We weren't sound and that's my fault," Crews said. Well, then.
