AP Game Recap

ST. LOUIS -- Jim Crews did not seem to mind Saint Louis backing into a share of its second straight Atlantic 10 title and the top seed in the conference tournament.

"Hey, we play for championships, so I'm delighted," the coach of the 17th-ranked Billikens after a 72-67 loss to Dayton in the home finale Wednesday night. "Our kids gave it great effort.

"It's a long season. For them to win back-to-back championships, that's pretty impressive."

Long faces during a low-key postgame ceremony for the five senior starters, with Crews doing most of the talking, showed the hurt. The Billikens (25-5, 12-3 Atlantic 10) cracked the Top 10 for the first time since 1964-65 a few weeks ago but now have lost three straight for the first time since February 2011.

"Not the way we wanted to get to that point," forward Dwayne Evans said.
