Saint Louis at St. Joseph’s – 7:00 PM EST – ESPN2

These two Atlantic 10 squads meet for the second time this season and both matchups coincidentally were scheduled on a Friday night. In the first go-around last month, Saint Louis (15-8 SU, 8-14-1 ATS) held off St. Joseph’s (10-13 SU, 8-15 ATS) as eight-point home favorites, 68-57 to improve to 9-1 SU and 10-0 ATS in the past 10 matchups since February 2010.

The Billikens capped off a 5-0 start in A-10 play with that victory over St. Joe’s on January 18, but SLU went the wrong way over a two-week stretch by losing four consecutive games. Travis Ford’s team ended that skid in Tuesday’s 73-60 home triumph over Dayton, 73-60 to cash as two-point underdogs. The Billikens jumped out to a 12-point halftime lead, while five players scored in double-figures led by D.J. Foreman’s 18 points.

The Hawks began A-10 action by losing four straight games, including home favorite defeats to George Mason and George Washington. The first conference win for St. Joe’s came in surprising fashion by edging Davidson, 61-60 as 4 -point home underdogs on January 15. The Hawks are winless on the road inside the A-10 at 0-5, but Phil Martelli’s club has won three straight at home by a combined seven points.
