The Billikens' 13th straight victory was one of their most lopsided. Richmond, coming off a win over then-No. 12 Massachusetts last week, entered with a four-game winning streak.
Dwayne Evans added 15 points and 10 rebounds for Saint Louis (19-2, 6-0 Atlantic 10). The start is second-best in school history behind the 19-1 beginning in 1993-94.
Kendall Anthony had 14 points for Richmond (14-7, 4-2), which shot 23 percent in the first half and finished with a season low in points.

OLEAN, N.Y. (AP) - Youssou Ndoye scored 11 of his 12 points in the second half for St. Bonaventure.
Matthew Wright, who had 11 points, put the finishing touches on the win with a 3-pointer with 55 seconds remaining. The Bonnies (13-8, 3-4 Atlantic 10) ended a 24-game losing streak against ranked opponents, which dates to a 57-56 home win over No. 20 Temple on Jan. 15, 2000.
Trey Davis scored 18 points for the Minutemen (17-3, 4-2), who lost for the second time in three games.
Star guard Chaz Williams was a non-factor. He finished with 11 points and fouled out with 1:39 remaining.
Charlon Kloof led the Bonnies with 14 points, but it was their defense that keyed the win against an opponent that was averaging an A-10-leading 78.5 points a game. St. Bonaventure forced 17 turnovers.
No. 22 MEMPHIS 69, UCF 59
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Joe Jackson scored 17 points and Chris Crawford and Michael Dixon added 12 each for Memphis.
The victory extends the Tigers' winning streak to four games. Memphis (16-4, 6-2 American) also extended its conference road winning streak to 16 games.
UCF (9-9, 1-6) was within a basket for most of the second half, but was outscored 13-5 to end the game.
Isaiah Sykes led UCF with 24 points.
The loss drops the Knights to 1-15 all-time against the Tigers.
PENN ST. 71, No. 24 OHIO ST. 70, OT
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - D.J. Newbill hit a pull-up jumper over Aaron Craft with 2 seconds left in overtime for Penn State.
Newbill, who led the Nittany Lions (11-10, 2-6 Big Ten) with 25 points, hit a 3 that forced overtime. Brandon Taylor added 19 points and Graham Woodward had 11 as Penn State ended Ohio State's string of victories in the series at 18.
LaQuinton Ross scored 16 points, Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 15 and Amir Williams added 12 for Ohio State (16-5, 3-5), which has lost five of six after a 15-0 start that saw it rise to No. 3 in the polls.
Buckeyes coach Thad Matta was 17-0 against Penn State since taking over as head coach in 2004-05.
Penn State improved to 2-11 at Value City Arena and is 3-4 on the road this season, winning for the first time in Big Ten play after losing their first three.
