ST. LOUIS (AP) — Micah Mason had 22 points, Jerry Jones added 19 and Duquesne surprised No. 10 Saint Louis 71-64 on Thursday night to snap the Billikens' school-record, 19-game winning streak.

Saint Louis (25-3, 12-1 Atlantic 10) had not lost since dropping a 70-65 decision on Dec. 1 to unbeaten Wichita State, now ranked No. 2 in the country.

Mason, who entered leading the nation in 3-point shooting percentage (.554), hit four of five from behind the arc for Duquesne (12-15, 4-10), which beat a top-10 opponent on the road for the fifth time (5-28). The Dukes, who were 14-point underdogs, improved to 25-55 against teams ranked in the top 10.

Dwayne Evans had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Saint Louis. Mike McCall Jr. led the Billikens with 18 points, while Jordair Jett (13 points) and Rob Loe (12 points) also were in double digits.
