Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Semaj Christon scored 20 points and Travis Taylor came up big with 19 points and 19 rebounds, as Xavier upended No. 16 Saint Louis, 77-66, in overtime Wednesday night in a tense Atlantic 10 battle.
The Billikens entered the night on an 11-game winning streak with hopes of gaining at least a share of the A-10 regular season title, something they haven't done in conference play since 1970-71, when Saint Louis tied for first in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Instead, the Billikens (23-6, 12-3 A-10) find themselves tied with Virginia Commonwealth atop the conference standings. Saint Louis hosts La Salle on Saturday to close the regular season.
Brad Redford scored 11 for the Musketeers (17-12, 9-6), who bounced back after a Saturday loss to Massachusetts.
Kwamain Mitchell had 17 points, Dwayne Evans 16 and Mike McCall Jr. 14 in defeat.
