Saint Vincent men's basketball ended Thomas More's 12-game winning streak and shook things up at the top of the Presidents' Athletic Conference with an impressive, 65-50 victory over the first-place Saints on Wednesday night in Latrobe.

Freshman guard Kyle Evans scored a game-high 13 points to go with seven rebounds and seven assists for the Bearcats (16-8, 13-4), which remained in third place in the PAC.

Thomas More (19-5, 15-2) handled Saint Vincent earlier in the season, 75-57.

Senior guard Matt D'Amico added 12 points and freshman forward Shemar Bennett had 10 for Saint Vincent. Senior forwards Austin Dedert and Tom Kromka each grabbed eight rebounds.

SVC took a 37-28 lead into halftime and stretched its advantage to 45-28 early in the second half. D'Amico and Dedert, former high school opponents at Fox Chapel and Plum, respectively, made back-to-back hoops to extend the lead to 20 (55-35).

Thomas More, which hit just 18 of 52 shots, had only six turnovers.

SVC shot 49 percent from the field.
