ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Drew Gordon had 18 points and nine rebounds Saturday as New Mexico won its 10th game in a row, beating Saint Louis 64-60.
Brian Conklin had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Billikens (12-2), whose six-game winning streak came to an end.
Saint Louis moved out to a 21-14 lead before the Lobos (12-2) came storming back on a 12-2 run that was fueled by five consecutive trips to the foul line, generating the first eight of the points in that run. New Mexico led 31-29 at halftime.
The game was tied eight times, the last coming with 7:10 left when New Mexico's Phillip McDonald hit his only basket, a 3-pointer that put the Lobos ahead for good at 48-45.
