LOS ANGELES (AP) -- LaRon Armstead scored a career-high 22 points, Anthony Ireland added 17 and Jarred DuBois 16 to help Loyola Marymount beat No. 23 Saint Louis 75-68 Tuesday night, snapping the Billikens' six-game winning streak that returned them to the Top 25 for the first time since 1993-94.

The trio combined to go 19 of 20 from the free throw line for the Lions (4-2), whose previous biggest win this season came in their opener when they beat then-No. 17 UCLA by 11 points on the road. Armstead had been averaging 8.3 points.

Cody Ellis scored 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Brian Conklin added 13 before fouling out in the final seconds for the road-weary Billikens (6-1). They were coming off a tournament title at the 76 Classic in Anaheim, where they beat Boston College, Villanova and Oklahoma. The loss concluded a stretch of playing five of their first seven games on the road.
