The Saint Louis Billikens will be losing some talent in the upcoming season, but that does not mean they will not compete in the Atlantic 10 in the 2013-14 college basketball season. Dwayne Evans will be back, but can he lead the conference in scoring?

For this to happen, Evans is going to have to be just as efficient from the field. He shot 54.7 percent last season and that very well could be the case in the 2013-14 season. Last year, he scored 14 points per game and also managed to grab 7.7 rebounds per game.

He was the leading scorer on Saint Louis, but the next two highest scorers will no longer be on the team. That just means Evans has to put the basketball in the hoop more and be that much better. Other players will step up, but Evans is one of the most talented players in the conference.

He certainly is capable of scoring the most points in the A 10, but he will definitely have to average more than 14 points per game.

The Billikens were a great defensive team this past season and that should be the case once again. However, you can expect Evans to put up quite a bit of points and be one of the elite scorers in the conference.

There is plenty of competition for the scoring leader in the A 10, so it is not like it is a given for Evans to lead the conference in scoring or anything like that. Scoring leader or not, it should be another great season for Saint Louis.
