AMHERST, Mass. (AP) — Jordair Jett scored on a driving layup with 3 seconds to play and No. 17 Saint Louis snapped a three-game losing streak with a 64-62 victory over Massachusetts on Sunday as the Billikens won the Atlantic 10 regular season title outright for the second straight season.

Jett finished with 17 points, including the Billikens' last six of the game. Saint Louis (16-5, 13-3 A-10) got its final possession on a jump ball call with 36.4 seconds left. Jett dribbled out the clock near midcourt before starting in the game-winning drive.

Chaz Williams, who had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Minutemen (23-7, 10-6), had a 3-point attempt at the buzzer bounce off the rim.

Saint Louis, which started its losing skid after a school-record 19-game winning streak, didn't lead in the second half until Jett's game-winning shot.
