OLEAN, N.Y. (AP) — Ogo Adegboye hit six 3-pointers en route to a career-high 29 points and Andrew Nicholson scored 20 of his 22 in the second half as St. Bonaventure defeated Saint Louis 83-73 on Wednesday night for its third straight win.
Da’Quan Cook added 21 points for the Bonnies (14-10, 6-5 Atlantic 10 Conference), who shot 73.9 percent in the second half (17 of 23) after leading 32-21 at halftime.
After the Billikens (8-17, 3-9) opened the second half with a Dwayne Evans jumper, Nicholson’s layup pushed St. Bonaventure’s lead back into double figures until the final minute.
Brian Conklin scored on a three-point play and a layup to get Saint Louis within seven, at 80-73, with 25 seconds left. Cook made a layup with 18 seconds to go, then hit 1 of 2 free throws to seal the win.
Evans scored 16 and Conklin had 15 for the Billikens, who have lost four straight and six of seven.
