DAYTON, Ohio (AP)- Austin McBroom hit all six free throw attempts in the final 41 seconds as St. Louis won its tenth straight, bumping Dayton 67-59 to remain undefeated in conference play Saturday.

McBroom finished with 17 points and Dwayne Evans led the Billikens (15-2, 2-0 Atlantic 10) in a game they controlled since Evans hit a 3-pointer for a 16-14 lead at 11:04 of the first half.

St. Louis is off to its best start since the 1993-94 season, is 5-0 on the road and boasts the best shooting-percentage defense in the A-10. It showed Saturday as Dayton (12-4, 0-1), the conference leader in shooting percentage, was held to a season-low 30.6-percent shooting.

The Flyers’ Devin Oliver, a 54-percent field-goal shooter at 12 ppg, scored 26 against Ole Miss in an overtime win Jan. 4 but was shut out by the Billikens on 0-12 shooting. Jordan Sibert paced Dayton with 15 points.
