(KSDK Sports) -- Dwayne Evans was spectacular again and Saint Louis is a step closer to its first ever Atlantic 10 Tournament title.

Evans had 24 points and 11 rebounds in the 16th-ranked Billikens' 67-56 win over Butler in the semifinals of the A-10 tourney.

Evans tallied a career-high 25 points on 8-of-9 shooting and went a perfect 9- of-9 from the foul line in Friday's quarterfinal win over Charlotte. He was 7-of-10 from the field and 9-of-11 from the stripe Saturday.

Cody Ellis added 13 points for Saint Louis (26-6), which has won 14 of its last 15 games.

The Billikens will play the winner of the VCU/Massachusetts contest in Sunday's A-10 final.

Rotnei Clarke netted 16 points to lead the Bulldogs (26-8), who defeated Dayton and La Salle to get to the semis.
