"Zero," he said.
That was before Friday night, however.
The Saints got off to fast starts in both halves and dunked the Warriors, 59-28, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game at Ron Thillen Gymnasium.
"Wash has been a tremendous program and very well coached," said Lilly. "They've been sort of our nemesis."
Not this time.
Lilly has battled Washington for the past 32 years as a head coach, including 13 years at Regis and the past 19 years at Xavier.
He's had his share of victories against the Warriors along the way, but nothing like this one.
The Saints, who are ranked No. 6 in Class 4A, began the game with a 13-0 run and started the second half with an 18-2 spurt, way too much for the visitors to overcome.
Washington (7-10, 4-6) scored only eight points in the second half, with four points in the third quarter and four more in the fourth period.
