ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ian Vouyoukas scored 16 points and Saint Louis sank 24 free-throws as the Billikens defeated George Washington 63-53 Saturday afternoon.

Three other Billikens finished in double figures, with Luke Meyer adding 15 points, Tommie Liddell scoring 13 and Kevin Lisch finishing with 10. Saint Louis (15-8, 5-4 Atlantic 10) also hit 24 of its 28 free-throw attempts, including 18-of-22 in the second half.

George Washington (15-6, 6-3) sank all four of its attempts for the game. It was led by Carl Elliott and Rob Diggs, who both scored 12.

It marked the second consecutive conference loss for the Colonials, who entered the day in a three-way tie with Fordham and Rhode Island for first place in the Atlantic 10.

George Washington led 30-26 at halftime.

But Saint Louis went on a 14-4 run early in the second half to erase an 11-point deficit and take a 31-30 lead on Meyer's 3-point basket with 18:12 left.

The Colonials reclaimed the lead briefly before Vouyoukas sank two free-throw attempts to tie the score at 38. Saint Louis took the lead for good on Bryce Husak's only basket 48 seconds later.
