Rhode Island ran its conference win streak to 11 dating back to last season.
Davell Roby made 11 of 12 free throws and scored 19 to pace Saint Louis. D.J. Foreman added 13 points, while Jalen Johnson chipped in with 10 points and seven rebounds. The Billikens outrebounded Rhode Island 36-30. Saint Louis was 8-0 this season when winning the rebound battle.
Two Fatts Russell free throws gave the Rams a 9-8 lead 6½ minutes into the game and they never trailed again. Roby hit two free throws with 10:32 left to play to pull the Billikens even at 55, but Berry’s jumper regained the lead for the Rams, who made 13 of 16 free throws to close out the win.
