XU Hoops: Xavier Sneaks by Butler

Xavier was able to come back and hold on to a one point lead to win 70-69 over Butler Sunday. The Musketeers (11-7, 3-2, 74th) were led by Paul Scruggs’ 24 points and Naji Marshall’s 14. Xavier seemed to struggle throughout the game as Butler held a double-digit lead at one time before making late rally. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs (10-7, 1-3, 71st) were led by Kamar Baldwin who scored 14 points. Xavier hopes to continue its winning streak when it faces heavily-favored Villanova (13-4, 4-0, 18th) Friday at 8:30 p.m. in The Pavilion (Philadelphia).
