London, Ontario - Saint Louis moved to 2-0 on its Canadian exhibition tour with a 88-59 victory against the University of Western Ontario Tuesday night at Alumni Hall.
"We had some good stretches, especially on the defensive end," SLU assistant coach Jim Whitesell said. "Mike McCall really sparked us defensively by getting some deflections and run outs. As the game progressed, we built a good lead but we were unable to sustain our intensity like we would have liked. Give Western credit, they spread us out and we got caught up behind the ball. Overall, it was good playing like this for two games back-to-back. We are seeing some real positive things on this trip so far."
Tuesday's victory comes on the heels of a 98-57 win at Windsor Monday. Next, the Billikens head to Ottawa for a Thursday game against the University of Ottawa, and Friday and Saturday games against Carleton University.
