Justin Cerasoli had 12 points for Loyola. He was the only Rambler to reach double figures.
Saint Louis led 23-21 at halftime. Cerasoli hit a layup to pull Loyola to within a point 30-29 early in the second half, but the Billkens went on a 17-4 run to take a 47-33 lead with 8:51 remaining.
The Billikens didn't score until four minutes into the game, but led 11-7 with 9:08 left in the first half.
With 3:45 remaining in the half, Cerasoli hit his second 3-pointer to tie the game at 17-17. Liddell responded with a 3-pointer on the Billikens' next possession.
Cerasoli hit a driving layup at 2:01 for a 21-20 Loyola lead, but an Erberhardt 3-pointer with 1:21 gave the Billikens their halftime edge, and Saint Louis never trailed again.
