    DETROIT -- Woody Payne scored a career-best 17 points and made a critical defensive play Saturday to help Detroit beat Saint Louis, 62-57.

    Detroit led 60-57 with less than five seconds to play when Payne blocked Kevin Lisch's 3-pointer to teammate Xavier Keeling, who was fouled and made both free throws to put the game away.

    Keeling finished with a career-high 21 points and nine rebounds as Detroit (2-3) won for the second time in as many home games under new coach Ray McCallum.

    Tommie Liddell III scored 16 points and Lisch added 14 for the Billikens (2-3), who were outrebounded 31-24.

    The Titans used a 13-3 second-half run to take the lead for good. Reserve Eulis Stephens scored all eight of his points in the second half.

    Saint Louis trailed 55-44 with two minutes to play but got back into the game after Liddell scored eight straight points in 40 seconds.
