(KMOV.com) – The Billikens' two week adventure in the top 10 has ended.
SLU dropped from #10 to #17 after losing to unranked Duquesne and Virginia Commonwealth (VCU). The loss to Duquesne ended the Bills’ 19 game winning streak and was the first blemish on their conference record.
Both defeats also prevented SLU from clinching at least a share of the Atlantic 10 regular season title. The Bills can still clinch if they defeat Dayton Wednesday.
