ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jordair Jett and Cody Ellis scored 17 points apiece and Saint Louis held on to beat North Texas 67-63 Wednesday night.

Jett's basket with 35 seconds remaining broke a 61-61 tie, and Ellis made four free throws to keep the Billikens (5-3) in control and give them back-to-back victories for the first time this season.

Chris Jones led the Mean Green (3-6) with 21 points. Tony Mitchell had 18 points and eight rebounds for North Texas, which has lost four in a row.

It was the teams' first meeting since 1981.
