RICHMOND, Va. -- Justin Harper scored 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds and blocked four shots to lead Richmond to a 64-52 win over Saint Louis on Saturday.

The Spiders (20-6, 9-2 Atlantic 10) have won four straight and seven of their last eight games. The win also gave Richmond its third consecutive season with at least 20 wins.

Dan Geriot finished with 12 points, and Kevin Smith had 10 points and five steals for the Spiders.

Richmond rarely trailed in the contest, as Harper led them with his second half scoring. He scored 10 straight points that included two 3-pointers, giving the Spiders a 51-38 lead with 9:04 left.

The Billikens would not go away, cutting Richmond's lead to four points, 56-52, on Brian Conklin's jumper with 2:34 to play. But the Spiders held Saint Louis (8-16, 3-8) scoreless the rest of the way.

Dwayne Evans led the Billikens with 21 points and 15 rebounds.
