The Washington Huskies were stunned in their first road game of the season by the hands of the St. Louis. Billikens by the score of 77-64.

The Washington Huskies men's basketball team were amped up to play their first road game of the season against St. Louis Billikens, but left the Rome of the West with their heads hanging low. UW trailed by as much as 29 points during the game, eventually falling 77-64 to Saint Louis on Sunday at Chaifetz Arena.

With a lot of early foul trouble and unacceptable turnovers, the Huskies never were really in it. They trailed early as big men Darnell Gant and Aziz N'Diaye were benched with foul trouble and struggled to get into the rhythm of the game. The Billikens, who made 8 of 12 three-pointers in the first half, kept increasing the lead and took a 50-25 advantage into halftime.

Washington (3-1) was too intent on playing 1-on-1 basketball early in the game against Saint Louis (3-0), who came into the game allowing an average only 39.5 points in its first two games. Brian Conklin led the way for St. Louis who finished with 25 points while point guard Kwamain Mitchell made four from downtown, scoring 18 points. Saint Louis shot  52.8 percent for the game.

Terrence Ross led the way for the Huskies with 17 points and eight boards, while Tony Wroten Jr., finished with 14 points, all in the second half.
