Final Score: Saint Louis 59, Rhode Island 58

Kingston, RI (SportsNetwork.com) - Jordair Jett sank a pair of free-throws with seven seconds remaining as the Saint Louis Billikens escaped with a 59-58 victory over the Rhode Island Rams in an Atlantic 10 opener at the Ryan Center.

Jett finished with a game-high 31 points for Saint Louis (14-2, 1-0 A-10). Dwayne Evans chipped in with 11 points and tied for a team-high with six rebounds.

E.C. Matthews paced Rhode Island (9-7, 0-1) with 17 points and Xavier Munford tacked on 16.

Saint Louis connected on just 33.3 percent from the floor in the first half, but limited Rhode Island to seven field goals to take a 27-19 edge at the break.

The Rams improved to 52.2 percent shooting in the second period to rally. They took a 58-57 lead with a 3-pointer from Matthews and a free-throw from Munford in the final minute.

He missed both free-throws following the foul but there was not enough time for Rhode Island to get off another shot.
