    ST. LOUIS -- Kevin Lisch scored all of his team-high 18 points in the second half to lead Saint Louis over Charlotte 69-61 on Wednesday night.

    The Billikens (15-9, 6-4 Atlantic 10) also got 14 points from Kwamain Mitchell and 13 from Tommie Liddell III in winning their fourth straight game.

    Charlie Coley led Charlotte (8-15, 2-7) with 18 points and eight rebounds. Lamont Mack added 16 points.

    The 49ers led 29-28 at halftime, but Lisch hit five straight baskets to open the second period and spark a 31-14 Billiken run that put Saint Louis ahead 59-43.

    Charlotte closed to within 66-59 late in the period before Lisch hit four free throws in the final 1:43 to seal the victory.

    Saint Louis shot 56.5 percent in the second half after missing nine of its first 11 shots in the opening half.
