ST. LOUIS — Yuri Collins set a school record with 19 assists — the most in an NCAA game this season — to go with 14 points and Saint Louis beat Boston College 79-68.

Collins broke the Saint Louis assists record set by Jim Roder versus Southern Miss during the 1986-87 season. He was 5-of-5 shooting as the sophomore collected his second career double-double. Collins’ final assist came on a length-of-the-court pass to Francis Okoro for a game-ending dunk.

Gibson Jimerson, with five 3-pointers, and Okoro scored 19 points each. Makai Ashton-Langford scored 18 points for the Eagles.
